When Tessa Gray arrives in Victorian London to be reunited with her brother, she knows only the mundane (human) world. Soon, however, against her will, she is introduced to Shadowhunters, Downworlders, and her own hidden powers. In the great battle for control of the mundanes, Tessa not only must choose sides but also must decide if, how, and when she should use her newfound skills. Despite Jennifer Ehle's slightly inconsistent accents, the strength of this first entry in the new Steampunk trilogy is not lost to listeners. Clare has created a complex world in which there are no easy relationships or safe havens. A more emotionally varied narration would have strengthened listeners' connections to both the characters and the action. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
