“Love and lies can corrupt even the purest heart… In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, while her desire for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will – the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do? As their dangerous search for the truth leads the three friends into peril, Tessa’s heart is ever more torn, especially when one of their own betrays them…”
My library is great! I managed to get the second book in the series right after I finished the first book! I’m really enjoying being pulled into a series and being able to read each book straight after the other, rather than have to wait for the next one to be published. There is an excitement to that waiting, but sometimes I just want to get stuck in and fully absorbed into the world I’m reading about. This series has also gotten me back into reading daily and I love it.
This book continues the story on from the first one. I don’t want to give any spoilers but basically it’s forming a love triangle and we learn more about the characters and why they are the way they are. I enjoyed reading about the world they live in and it being based in London. I feel more connected to this series than I do the other series set in modern times. Maybe it feels more fantasy than the others. I don’t know, but I am enjoying it.
The book ends on a cliffhanger and I was so glad the library got in the third book for me right away as that is what I am currently coming to the end of now!
