Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1)
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. Friendless and hunted, Tessa seek ...more

From Clockwork Angel on, both series kind of intertwine and some things are foreshadowed in one series that is going to happen in the other. This way you're reading it as Cassandra Clare intended the story to unfold, and you won't be accidentally "spoiled" for one series. :)(less)
When people ask me ''Who is your favorite author?'' I never know exactly what answer to offer. I very much enjoy reading L.J. Smith’s books. But C.S. Pacat is my favorite M/M author! And let’s not forget how amazing J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is. Oh, and have you heard of Kiera Cass? She wrote such a swoon-worthy love story! And Eliza Crewe, Leigh Bardugo, Laini Taylor and Marissa Meyer are all new favorite authors of mine.
Nonsense. No need to be torned ever again.

5 FULLY STARS!

I never thought this could be that good.I had started "City of Bones" (the first book of The Mortal Instruments by the same author) but it didn't work for me so I thought this could be the same but I was totally wr...more

Yeah, yeah, it's a little over the top in parts, but who cares? :D Yum
I don't give many 5 star reviews, but this one is definitely a 5 star book for me. While I liked Mortal Instruments, I wasn't as rabid a fan as I know many people are, so I read Clockwork Angel out of curiosity more than anything else...and I'm so glad I did!

In order to save you some precious time, I will tell you my honest reaction to Clockwork Angel right here, right now:
Thank you, Shou.
Also, when I first opened the book, I was faced by this description as well:
Magic is dangerous-but love is more dangerous still.

Clockwork Angel was AMAZING. If you love The Mortal Instruments, then you will surely love this book, maybe even more than the original series itself. And if you didn't, well I honestly believe The Infernal Devices will succeed in what The Mortal Instruments failed to do.
The characters were one hundred times more better than that of The Mortal Instruments! Everybody was so much more likable and mature. I really thought for a second that Tessa Gray was older ...more
However, I think I would have liked it much better if I hadn’t read the Mortal Instruments series before. But the books are so similar (which was to be expected, I know, as they are set in th ...more

I apparently have gained a following because of these reviews, and they have convinced me to use my analytical powers on The Infernal Devices series. You could say I'm easily swayed because I lack dignity. But this is really just too much fun. It's so much fun, I need to be stroking a cat.
First, the usual disclaimer. This review contains spoilers, griping, whining, over thinking, and general ranting. Trolls need not apply.
Let's get started.

"It was books that made me feel that perhaps I wasn't completely alone."--Will Herondale
So, this is it. My very first book by the incredibly popular writer, Cassandra Clare, and she didn't disappoint me at all. I've always wanted to give her books a try and see what the hypes are about but was taken aback by such a HUGE chronicle. I mean, there are other series more or less related to The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments and I have the habit of readathoning all of them. Fortunately ...more
“If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?”
I read this book for the second time. First time ? Not my impressive experience. Clockwork Angel is fun to read but not spectacular. I don't know why something always pulled me back when I really wanted to enjoy this one. Although the characters are outstanding, it's not captivated enough to neutralize the disastrous pace of this book. Will, James and Tessa are a perfect triad I'm very fond of, they give and recieve ...more

I can't believe it took me so long to read this book! I loved the world it is set in and all of the characters accept the evil ones. Although, the evil ones were done very nicely indeed!
I'm sure about a million thousand people know the story by now, but I guess I will tell it some more

Dare I say, this wasn't horrible? It wasn't AMAZING nor did it in any way blow me away -because let's face it more than a few of the events that happened were literally the same things that happened in the mortal instruments.- but it wasn't HORRIBLE. *cough cough* TMI.
If you've been following my reviews for awhile, you probably know that I absolutely hate The Mortal Instruments. My strong disliking was to the point where when I heard Cassandra Clare would be writing more than one ...more

I can't remember all the details from this book's predecessor, City of Bones, but the plot between these two were pretty similar.
The MC doesn't know it, but she turns out to be special and different than she thought. A family member goes missing and she has to enlist the help of the Shadowhunters to try to get them back. Her life soon gets caught up in magic and the supernatural.
Even the characters were simila ...more
