Just Like Clockwork

Sunday, September 19, 2010
Every since reading the Mortal Instruments I've loved Cassandra Clare's writing. So, as to no surprise when Clockwork Angel came out, the first in the Infernal Devices series, and the prequel to the Mortal Instruments, I just had to buy it. Last night I finished it, late into the night, saying just one more chapter.

Cassandra has a wonderful way of pulling together the world as we all know it and her Shadow World. Clockwork Angel was delightful in it's historical accuracies and her little twists and tweaks.

As in the Mortal Instruments, we get to know a brave heroine Tessa, who doesn't really know what she is. Tessa has come from America to, as she believed, live with her brother in London. But the moment she steps off the ship, she starts realize that things are not what she thought. Constantly Tessa is finding that what she believed to be true or thought isn't real. She struggles to learn the truth of things, and to find what this new power, gift, or curse that she has is.

Part of what I love is Cassandra's who likes who, who will get who, that is going on and in a Shadowhunter's Institute with Jem, Will, Tessa, Sophie, Jessamine, and a dash of warlock Magnus Bane thrown in it does get quite interesting.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loved the Mortal Instruments, and also quite a few who haven't. What's not to like, vampires, werewovles, Shadowhunters, warlocks, and faeries? Join the world unseen with Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel.
