The Infernal Devices

The Infernal Devices is a trilogy by author Cassandra Clare, centering on a race called the Shadowhunters introduced in her The Mortal Instruments series. The trilogy is a prequel series to The Mortal Instruments series, and contains some of the character's ancestors. Clare has insisted that the two series can be read in either order but The Mortal Instruments has references to characters and events in The Infernal Devices.The series follows Tessa Gray, an orphaned teenage girl who discovers she has the power to shape-shift, but doesn't bear a mark that shows she is a warlock. She is forced to learn how to control this newly established power and navigate the new world she was forcefully introduced into. The series follows Tessa's life as she lives in the London Institute with the Shadowhunters. The trilogy features William "Will" Herondale, James "Jem" Carstairs, Theresa "Tessa" Gray, and other Downworlders and Shadowhunters in the London Institute. It also features Magnus Bane, Camille Belcourt and other characters who appear in The Mortal Instruments series. The books also contain many quotes referring to famous pieces of Victorian Literature like Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, and the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Alfred Tennyson.
