Title: Clockwork Angel
Series: The Infernal Devices #1
Author: Cassandra Clare
In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…
What is it about this whole series that makes me really like it?! I can’t put my finger on it!
But anyway, imagine my glee when I realised that Tessa wasn’t just a book lover, she was the ultimate bookworm! Then my glee deminished slightly when I discovered she was actually a bit rude and cruel. I didn’t really like her but I’m hoping that will change with the next book.
But anyway part 2, Jem is my utter fave. He was my shining light here.
But anyway part 3, I can’t not mention Will. Even though I didn’t like him more than Jem, I think my love for him will grow.
But anyway part 4, Jessamine. Why was she even in this story? Boring, horrible and a non entity!
But anyway part 5, I never guessed the twist. Wouldn’t have in a million years but at the end of chapter 17, it clicked! My jaw dropped. But I WAS WRONG!!!! So wrong! I put 2 and 2 together and made 5! Fabulous!
So to sum up, a lot of anyways but I can say I really did enjoy this and can’t wait to read the next one.
