The Shadowhunter world Cassie has created goes beyond any other paranormal world I've read. I'm glad she has stuck with it and all her books scheduled will be set in our now familiar setting. The tension and action in her books are unique, and even though her descriptions are sometimes overdone, they also help keep the world/downworld vivid and clear. Clockwork Angel is no exception. Set in 18th century London, this new adventure smoothly balances the urban fantasy with the historical setting to create a new phenomenal start to a new trilogy (The Infernal Devices).

I did feel that Clare repeated the exact same formula she used in Mortal Instruments. From the misunderstood, rude male lead to the pace of the plot, and even the love-related cliff hanger ending. Even though this time, I found Will obnoxious and unbearable. Yes, I know he's hiding something and he needs someone who understands him... blah, blah. But he lacks the spark and wittiness that Jace had. So this time, unlike most of you and, even though I know I'll be disappointed, I'm Team Jem! He's sweet, mature, steady and needs someone there for him too. I also loved how most characters were related or ancestors of Mortal Instruments characters! And the cover? Clare's covers are some of the most gorgeous attention-grabbing covers I've ever seen.

Overall, a MUST READ for everyone, because no one does fantasy-meets-reality and brings us all supernatural creatures together like Cassandra Clare does.
