Clockwork Angel

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1)Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis
Magic is dangerous--but love is more dangerous still.
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. 

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. 
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by--and torn between--two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
My Thoughts
LOVED! OMG! Will... I love him. This book was so good. I never really liked book that set in the old days but this, THIS was amazing! The action in this book blows my mind. The characters Will and the dad of house i forget his name, the one who works on devices, cracks me up. Especially the dad. His dorkyness is what had me laughing at him. Tessa and Will relationship reminds me of Clary and Jace by different all the same. Love Jace and i Love Will. This is a great start to the prequel series and i absolutely loved it! Can't wait for Clockwork Prince! Cassandra Clare is an amazing author

    Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens and I can't fix it. :)

  3. I usually don't like fantasy too much, but my friend told me that one of the characters in this book likes to read classic books, is that true?

  4. I loved this new series by Cassandra Clare! I maybe like the Inferno devices better than Mortal Instruments? I don't know, I can't choose! Just finished Clock Prince. I'm looking forward to where the author takes it next :)
