Official summary: "In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street — and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends. With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move — and that one of their own has betrayed them. Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing 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 Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart. (

My commentary:  I didn't think this one was as great as the first in the series, but I still am loving it more than the Mortal Instruments series. Both series are great though.

Official summary: "Magic is dangerous — but love is more dangerous still. When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by — and torn between — two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length ... everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world ... and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

My commentary: 
  • I loved The Mortal Instruments, but dear God, The Infernal Devices is even better. Totally obsessed now.
  • I instantly became torn between Will and Jem. I love both of the characters. They're both perfect fictional heartthrobs. Damn you Cassie Clare!

Memorable quotes:
  • "It was much less fun showing off without Jem to show off to." ~ Will
  • "(Will) had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheekbones, a full mouth, and long, thick lashes. Even the curve of his throat was perfect. He looked like every fictional hero she'd ever conjured up in her head." ~ Tessa
  • "Let me give you a piece of advice. The handsome young fellow who's trying to rescue you from a hideous fate is never wrong. Not even if he says the sky is purple and made of hedgehogs." ~ Will to Tessa
  • "It isn't against the Law to be an idiot." ~ Henry

  • "It is hard to think of something as a gift when you have been tormented and imprisoned for it." ~ Tessa
  •  "I do not walk like a duck." ~ Tessa
    "I like ducks. Especially the ones in Hyde Park. Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks?" ~ Jem
    "They ate it too. Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck." ~ Will
  • "You disgrace the name of Shadowhunters everywhere." ~ Gabriel to Will

  • "Where there's our Will, there's a half-dozen angry girls claiming he's compromised their virtue." ~ Jem

  • "Whatever you are physically, male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy -- all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shade that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. You are the flame." ~ Jem
  • "Perhaps it wasn't actually possible to scrub away your thoughts of someone, but she could try." ~ Tessa

  • "All that pretty face and whatnot just hides how twisted up and rotten he is on the inside." ~ Sophie about Will
  • "Sometimes our lives can change so fast that the change outpaces our minds and our hearts." ~ Jem
  • "Many who have gazed upon me have compared the experience to gazing at the radiance of the sun." ~ Will
    "If they mean it gives you a headache, they aren't wrong." ~ Jem

Official summary: "My friends and I used to play lying games. Now my twin sister is living one. When I was alive, my family seemed picture-perfect. My adoptive parents adored me, and my little sister, Laurel, copied my every move. But now that my long-lost twin, Emma, has taken my place to solve my murder, we’re both learning just how flawed my family really is. Laurel is shooting Emma nasty looks and sneaking around with my ex-boyfriend. And it turns out my parents are keeping a huge secret — could it be the reason I’m dead? How far would they go to keep the truth buried? No one can harm me now, but Emma is still fair game. And if she’s not careful, she’ll end up buried, too." (

How I obtained the book: Bought for $10.75 through Walmart's website using a gift card I got free.

My commentary: 
  • This is the best book in the series by far... not that the past ones weren't great, but this one was action-packed and such an emotional rollercoaster. This one is right up there along the lines of the best of the Pretty Little Liars books.
  • Every time I read a book by Sara Shepard, I always think about how messed up something in her life had to have been for her to be able to create such bizarre, devious storylines. 

Memorable quotes:
  • "I'd always thought the afterlife would be like an eternal stay at a resort on St. Barts -- hot French waiters bringing me fruity drinks until the end of time, the azure Caribbean sky in a permanent sunset, a cool ocean breeze tickling my forever tanned skin. It would be my reward for living a full, fabulous, long life. I couldn't have been more wrong." ~ Sutton

My commentary:
  • I only thought the first book in this series was great. This one blows the first out of the water. I love how Tara Hudson can take what is basically just a ghost story and make it so breathtaking and addictive. I couldn't predict where the story was going in this book, and ultimately it was like going on an amusement park ride that excites and takes unexpected turns. I can't wait for the third and final book in the trilogy to come out.

Memorable quotes:
  • "When you had a ghost for a girlfriend, you eventually had to choose between the living and the dead. Between a normal life and a haunted one." ~ Amelia
  • "I started to suspect that an empty world waited just beyond this vehicle. A world untouched and blank: not for me to write my story upon, but to disappear into. To fade against, finally, like the ghost I was." ~ Amelia
  • "I kept asking myself the same question: Is it possible for a ghost to go crazy?" ~ Amelia
  • "Amelia Elizabeth Ashley, I say this with affection, but you're totally crazy." ~ Joshua

ISBN: 978-0758232014

Official summary: "Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer operations... to Las Vegas. The City of Sin is a dream gig for a succubus, but Georgina's allies are suspicious. Why are the powers-that-be so eager to get her away from Seattle — and from Seth? Georgina is one of Hell's most valuable assets, but if there's any way out of the succubus business she plans to take it -- no matter how much roadkill she leaves behind. She just hopes the casualties won’t include the one man she’s risking everything for..." (

My commentary: 
  • I am surprisingly extremely sad that this series is over. I have no more of the books left to read. Part of me wants to cry.
  • This book was the best of the series and was the perfect close to the series. Georgina -- literally -- goes to Hell and back for the love of her life. I'm used to Richelle Mead breaking my heart over and over again with her books with very few truly happy endings, but Georgina and Seth getting to be together in the end, leading "normal" lives together, was so amazing that it makes up for some of the heartbreak she's given me in the past.

Official summary: "Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals — all child’s play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend’s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn’t sure which is worse — that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina’s roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there’s Simone, the new succubus in town, who’s intent on corrupting Seth. But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t — and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity..." (

  • "I think our civilization has declined when scrunchies have become the prevalent form of hair ornamentation." ~ Seth

  • "Dreams can be lies, but truth is truth." ~ Oneroi #1
  • "There is no greater evil than ignorance and the destruction of genius. Ignorance has been responsible for more death, more bigotry, and more sin than any other force. It is the destroyer of mankind." ~ Tavia

Official summary: "Georgina Kincaid has been a bad, bad succubus... which should be a good thing. But lately, thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, she’s been so wicked that Seattle’s über-demon Jerome, decides to “outsource” Georgina to a rival — and have her spy for him in the process. Being exiled to the frozen north — okay, Vancouver — and leaving Seth in the cozy clutches of his new girlfriend is unpleasant enough. Then Jerome is kidnapped, and all immortals under his control mysteriously lose their powers. One bright spot: with her life-sucking ability gone, there’s nothing to keep Georgina from getting down and dirty with Seth — nothing apart from his girlfriend that is. Now, as the supernatural population starts turning on itself, a newly mortal Georgina must rescue her boss and figure out who’s been playing them — or all hell will break loose" (

Official summary: "Some days, a girl just can't catch a break... especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there’s her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It’s not just that they can’t have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block. Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused — especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge — rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again" (
