Tessa Gray leaves the familiarity of home to sail across the ocean to England, in search of her brother. Once there she is immediately kidnapped by the Dark Sisters, imprisoned, and forced to practice her 'talent': the ability to shape change into another human being. A talent that she had no idea she possessed. Members of the Pandemonium Club, the sisters are preparing Tessa for a secretive, powerful man called "The Magister".

Alone in the world, Tessa is rescued by members of the Shadowhunters - a group of Nephilim who patrol and protect. They offer her a place to stay and help locating her brother in exchange for her aid by use of her powers. She soon gets to know best friends Will and Jem, and is torn between the two. Will she find her brother before The Magister finds her? Will she ever discover who she truly is? Is love in her future?
