After four years, I decided to read Clockwork Angel again because I wanted to read the last book in The Infernal Devices series but I could not remember what happened in the past two books so I had to refresh my memory.

My opinion about TID being better than The Mortal Instruments still stands until now. Although, I somehow find Jem to be the better man for Tessa now than Will. Of course, I am still rooting for William, but Jem has shown more compassion to Tessa.

----------
First Reading: November 1, 2010


Note: Due to the lack of better things to do I decided to translate my book review of Clockwork Angel in English. If you prefer to read the original Filipino version, you can just scroll down somewhere in the middle part.

If only I could choose a 10-star rating here, I would’ve given this book one! It was written beautifully. I even felt like I was part of the story—I got excited, stressed and in love while reading this.

Well, I admit that I fell asleep while I was reading the prologue, but I guess I was just tired that day. It also took me a while to finish the first chapter because I thought the pacing was slow and I wasn’t still familiar with the new characters. I kept on expecting Jace or Clary to be mentioned even though I knew that this book is the prequel of The Mortal Instruments series. But when I got to the part where the Shadowhunters finally came into focus, particularly Will Herondale, I just couldn’t stop reading. Actually, I was trying to slow down my pace because I knew that I had to wait long again for the next books from The Infernal Devices series to come out.

I really missed Jace Wayland’s funny and sarcastic remarks from TMI and Will definitely reminded me of him. I have a feeling that Will plays a huge and important part in Jace’s future. I couldn’t remember the name of Jace’s real father but I know that he was a Herondale. I’m really in love with Will despite his temperament and unpredictable mood swings.

I was really shocked when I found out about Jem Carstairs’s dark secret. I really feel a deep compassion towards him even before I knew that and it only intensified when it was revealed. And when they launched an attack against the automatons and something bad happened to him, I got really worried because I thought he was going to die already. I was already prepared to mourn (yeah ;P), good thing he was still alive. It was so touching everytime there was a scene showing Will being overly-concerned for Jem.

I also felt devastated when Henry died. I didn’t realize how I grew attached to him until that unfortunate event. I really hoped that he would still appear on the succeeding books.

I just don’t like the name Tessa. I’m sorry, no offense meant. :)

I praise Cassandra Clare for her extraordinary talent in writing a great story. There were so many twists and turns that I never expected. She really knows how to make a good story conflict and build the climax properly. She’s still on the top of the list of my favorite authors, along with Suzanne Collins.

Filipino Version of Clockwork Angel

----------------------

Kung may 10 stars dito, yun sana ilalagay ko. Grabe, sobrang ganda. Feeling ko kasama rin ako sa story. Na-excite, na-stress at na-inlove din ako.

Nung una nakatulog ako habang binabasa yung prologue... siguro dahil inaantok na talaga ako nun. Tapos medyo natagalan akong tapusin yung first chapter kasi parang mabagal pa yung pacing at hindi pa ako familiar dun sa mga characters. Pero nung dumating na sa eksena yung mga Shadowhunters, particularly si Will Herondale, naku di na ako matigil sa pagbabasa. Actually ayoko pa siyang matapos kasi alam kong matagal pa ang hihintayin ko para sa release ng next book, kaya pinipigilan ko yung sarili kong magbasa.

Sobrang na-miss ko yung mga funny remarks ni Jace Wayland from Mortal Instruments, at through Will Herondale nabuhay siya ulit. Feeling ko malaki ang part ni Will sa future ni Jace. Di ko na kasi maalala kung sino nga ba talaga yung tunay na tatay ni Jace, pero ang natatandaan ko Herondale siya. Kasi diba dun sa City of Ashes, isang Herondale din yung Inquisitor, tapos siya daw yung lola ni Jace. O baka mali na lang talaga yung naaalala ko. Pero basta, naaalala ko talaga si Jace kay Will. Kahit na bongga ang mood swings ni Will, crush ko pa rin siya!♥♥♥

Na-shock talaga ako nung nalaman ko yung dark secret ni Jem. Tapos nung sinugod sila ng mga automaton tapos bumulagta siya sa sahig, akala ko talaga mamamatay na siya. Malulungkot na sana ako, buti nabuhay pa. Nakaka-touch nga kapag sobrang nag-aalala si Will kay Jem.

Nalungkot din ako nung namatay si Henry. BV! Akala ko pa naman mabubuhay siya.

Ayoko lang talaga sa pangalan ni Tessa. :D

Ang galing ni Cassandra Clare gumawa ng story. Ang daming twists and turns. Marami akong unexpected scenes na nangyari. Ang galing niyang gumawa ng mga problema.

Sobrang hihintayin ko talaga yung next book. I can't wait!!!
