Publisher's Summary

It is only three years since Tessa Gray lost her beloved husband William Herondale, and she is searching for a reason to live, trying to find the path of being a warlock with the guidance of her friend Catarina Loss.

World War 2 rains down destruction on their world, and Tessa and Catarina become nurses who make bargains at the Shadow Market for enchantments to help suffering mundanes. But can Brother Zachariah bear to see the woman he loves risk her life, or might he consider breaking sacred vows to save her from loneliness?

Not the best one

The story was nice, but the narrator was awful. Her voice was weak and her vocal fry was like nails on a chalkboard. She did not do well with accents and different voices, thus taking me out of the story.

Short glimpse

I would love for the story to be longer in timespan, it was too short!
It gave only a short glimpse into what had happened to Tessa in the interwar-period, and I had hoped for more. But obviously, too much can’t be spoiled yet as there is more books go come about what happens to Tessa & Will in 1903, and probably with the 2012-series in LA.
Sigh
The narrator had a bit annyoing tone, otherwise good story.

I cried the entire time.

I am loving listening to these novellas! If you haven't read The Infernal Devices then most of these Novellas would mean nothing to you but this one made my heart ache and swell at the same time. The love between Tessa, Will and Jem is extremely powerful and I cried over and over listening to this.

Tear Jerker

This story was a real tear jerker. Tessa and Jem's love is bittersweet. They are alive but kept apart by circumstance. Beautiful story.
The narrator brought the words to life.

Somber story.

Not my fave by a long shot. And the morose sounding narrator...hopefully she won’t read any others.
