Yet as she prepares for her wedding to Jem Carstairs, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to the Magister, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan of destruction. He needs Tessa. Tessa knows Axel Mortmain, the Magister, is coming for her, but not where or when he will strike.
She heard the sound of a hurried shuffle, and the door swung open. Gideon stood before her in trousers, braces, and a white shirt rolled up to the elbows. His hands were wet, as if he had just run quick fingers through his hair, which was also damp. Her heart took a little leap inside her chest before settling.
She forced herself to frown at him. It was like all the other rooms in the Institute: heavy dark furniture, a great four-poster bed, a wide fireplace, and high windows, which in this case looked down upon the courtyard below. Sophie could feel his gaze on her as she moved across the room to place the salver on the table before the fire. She straightened up and turned to him, her hands folded in front of her apron. Sophie, please.
Yet since the day I arrived, you have been cold to me. She remembered Master Teddy, the son of her old employer, and the horrible way he would catch her in dark corners and press her up against the wall, hands creeping under her bodice, murmuring in her ear that she had better be friendlier to him, if she knew what was good for her.
The thought filled her with sickness, even now. You are a gentleman and I am a servant; anything more would be a familiarity. Please do not make me uncomfortable, Mr. I have everything to lose, and he has nothing to lose, she reminded herself. It was what she told herself late at night, lying in her narrow bed, with the memory of a pair of storm-colored eyes hovering in her mind.
He swears it. Come along.
Outside, through the open doors, Tessa could see the Lightwood carriage, with its flame blazon on the side, drawn up at the foot of the steps. Gabriel must have driven it here himself. His hands were bloody too. I have to talk to my brother. Gabriel, are you injured? Do you need an iratze? It was the first time, Tessa thought, that she had seen him behave with no posturing at all. There was only stunned fear in his eyes, fear and—confusion. Who are they? Along with him came Henry, and Jem, and behind him, Will and Cecily.
Jem paused on the steps in startlement, and Tessa realized that he had caught sight of her in her wedding dress. His eyes widened, but the others were already pushing by, and he was carried down the steps like a leaf in a current. Though Gabriel was taller, the look of a younger sibling was clear in his face—relief that his brother was there, and a flicker of resentment at his peremptory tone. He was in gear as if he had just come from the practice room, and his hair curled damply against his temples.
He was not looking at Tessa, but she had grown used to that. Will hardly ever looked at her unless he had to. What did Father do? He has brought shame on the name of Lightwood, and lied to both of us. He shamed and destroyed our mother. But we need not be like him. A worm. A bloody great serpentlike thing. Those sores upon his arms, they started to cover him.
His hands, his neck, h-his face. Tessa hid a smile. It had been weeks since Cecily had come to the Institute, and still her presence bothered and upset Will. He did not seem to know how to behave around this younger sister, who was not the child he remembered, and whose presence he insisted was unwelcome.
And yet Tessa had seen him follow Cecily around a room with his eyes, with the same protective love in his gaze that he sometimes bent on Jem. Certainly the existence of demon pox, and how one acquired it, was the last thing he would want to explain to Cecily. Tessa could see him taking Cecily in. Cecily gazed boldly back at him, her expression curious; she must have been wondering who this boy was, who seemed to so dislike her brother.
It has changed him.
Some weeks ago he moved our household to Chiswick. He would not say why. Then a few days ago he locked himself in his study.
This morning I went to the study to try to rouse him. The door had been torn off its hinges. There was a. I followed it downstairs and into the gardens. That is what I am telling you.
I found some of the servants. They had been torn into—into pieces. I turned and saw it coming toward me. A great blind worm like a dragon out of a legend. Its mouth was open wide, lined with dagger teeth. I turned and ran for the stables. It slithered after me, but I leaped upon the carriage and drove it out through the gates.
The creature—Father—did not follow. I think it fears to be seen by the general populace. Maybe it could be reasoned with. Maybe Father is in there somewhere. The end stage of demon pox is turning into a demon.
It could have been any sort. Second, it takes weeks for the transformation process to occur. I would have thought even a certified idiot like Gabriel here would have taken account of it and notified someone. He had moved closer to Tessa as the conversation had continued. As they stood side by side, the backs of their hands brushed.
The postman. Jem, beside Tessa, hooked his smallest finger through hers. It was a habitual affectionate gesture, one that Tessa had grown used to over the past months, enough that she sometimes put out her hand without thinking when he was standing by her. We must go. Gabriel and I, if no one else. We have not forgotten, have we, Charlotte? Tessa looked away from the private moment and saw a dark head bent with a fair one. Cecily looked at her brother and scowled. Will jerked his head up, causing Jem to make a sound of annoyed protest.
For a moment everyone seemed to hold their breath, even Gabriel. Will sighed and half-closed his eyes. Jem is not going without me. Across the room Jem cast Tessa a slight, worried smile.
The Institute door swung open then, letting a blaze of autumn sunlight into the entryway. Cyril stood on the threshold, breathless. The time has come to appoint a successor. She has done good work as the head of the London Institute, and we believe her to have your stamp of approval, as she was appointed by you after the death of her father.

Jessamine is coming home. And no longer believing himself to be cursed, Will can finally open his heart to love. But despite the causes for celebration, everyone is weighed down by a sense of pervasive gloom. Tessa and her friends must find Mortmain and stop him, or risk losing Jem, the Institute, their lives.
Discussion Questions 1. In what ways does the overarching message of this poem fit with the events and themes of Clockwork Princess? What is it about their circumstances that allow them to connect with each other? Does their relationship change over the years? Why does Cecily originally come to London?
Do her reasons change as she spends time at the Institute? How does her presence make Will feel? Which other characters are dealing with complications caused by their sibling relationships?
As he goes mad, Benedict Lightwood writes a message on the walls of his study. What does this message mean to Tessa and her friends? Why do you think Lightwood wrote it?
Which characters are faced with this choice? Do they decide to be kind or honorable?
Tessa feels tragedy closing in on her friends as though they are characters in a book. Why is this analogy an apt one? Does she have the ability to change the course of events, or is she as powerless to change their fates as she is to change the plot of a book? Why does Consul Wayland exert so much effort discrediting Charlotte and removing her from power?
Does Charlotte exhibit any of the character flaws that Wayland claims she has? What legacy did Benedict Lightwood leave behind for his sons? Do Gideon and Gabriel deserve this legacy?
Why does Gabriel have such trouble finding his place at the London Institute? Why is Will willing to give up everything in order to save Jem? What does he stand to lose if Jem dies?
How does Tessa figure into his dedication to saving Jem?
