No matter how much I thought I was emotionally prepared to take on this series, I wasn’t. My puny heart just wasn’t made to process a story so epic and grand such as this one. It is both a blessing and a curse to have read these books for I will always have this eternal ache in my heart that can never be soothed, names such as Tessa, Will, and Jem will immediately remind me of these characters and the tears will well fast. Yet it’s not a reading experience I would ever ch

Usually after I finish reading a book, my mind is literally bursting with all these thoughts and stuff, but after I finished reading both Clockwork Angel and Prince, the only thing I could think about was WOW. I like it even better than TMI.
By the way. . .I was listening to Truly, Madly, Deeply by 1D, and I'd just finished Clockwork Prince. . .so all I could think about was how awesomely the lyrics went with it. I think the verses are Jem and Tessa, and the chorus is Will and Tessa, but I change

Cassandra Clare has outdone herself again. This series is my favorite book series ever. Not only is it in a different time period, it had the strangest love triangle ever. I know what you're thinking, "Ew not another sappy love triangle!" But this is different. This is by far the best love triangle I have ever read about. It is so different and it is incredibly sad. I cried outrageously throughout this series. ESPECIALLY in Clockwork Princess! My poor book has tear stains! It's funny and sad. Wi ...more
What an amazing book!! I personally believe that the Infernal Devices is better than the Mortal Instruments. But do not get me wrong I am in LOVE with all Cassandra Clare's books. The reason that this series drew me in was its strong characters and it's love story and sooo much more.

I've been reluctant to read this series for SO long, but finally decided that I had to, but mostly because I was in the mood because of the 'City Of Bones' film premiere.
I read this in 4 days, whilst having to go to school and homework and let me tell you something: it's one of the best book series I've ever read.
I am sold. This series...I can't. It's amazing.
Turns out I actually like this better than The Mortal Instruments!

'The Infernal Devices'-trilogy is by Cassandra Clare and is somewhat a
Ok, so in not particular order;

- I think Cassandra Clare is getting better. This was better built than the Mortal Instruments.
- Tessa is more interesting than Clary, shows more guts etc. Will is Jace, which is fun if you enjoyed Jace - although a bit weird. No wonder she made them related.
- Ms Clare obviously has sibling problems. As well as authority problems - as in TMI, adults are non-existent as such - Charlotte is hardly older than the main trio and her tininess is a leitmotiv, Henry could
A beautifully written, painfully good series. I haven't the words to fully express how deeply I was drawn in by the characters and their relationships to one another, except to lamely mention it is exquisitely sad in the end.
Nearing the turn of the century (the 19th century, that is) a newly orphaned girl Tessa Gray moves from New York to live with her brother in London. Taken at the docks by two women who claim to be his landladies, Tessa is imprisoned and thrust into the occult underbelly of
Julia Herondale
The Infernal Devices trilogy was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. It was quite simply excellency at its best. Cassandra Clare has an extroadinary talent and she is one of my top favorite authors. Please do not miss out on this phenomenal series. I sincerely promise that you won't regret it!
Maria Grazia
The shadowhunters in The Mortal Instruments series are half angel half human creatures who fight demons in present-day New York city. In The Infernal Devices their ancestors have to fulfil the same task in a dark Victorian London setting.

The stories of the two series are somehow intertwined, more so than you might expect. Once back in time and in London, you find yourself in the same fascinating world you had known with Clary Fray in 21st century NY , a world made of blood, danger, fight, runes
Amy Finnegan
(I'm only going to post my review of the first book, CLOCKWORK ANGEL, but I assure you, the series gets better with every book. I totally loved this series!)

I read this book when I was growing tired of supernatural novels, but this was a pleasant surprise. For one thing, the setting is Victorian England and the author does a good job planting her readers in the time period, but doesn't let the antiquated language, or the details of the furniture, carriages, and clothing interrupt the story.

Favorite trilogy of all time.

Favorite love triangle of all time.

Favorite shadowhunters of all time.

Favorite female protagonist of all time.

Favorite male love interest of all time (can't count Percy Jackson cause he is the main character not the love interest)

One of my favorite settings of all time.

Some of the best supporting characters ever. Henry, Charlotte, Sophie, Gideon, Gabriel.

One of the most memorable conclusions of all time.

The reason why I love this book is because the book ends well. The author, Cassandra Clare, describes beautifully in every chapter. This book also teaches about pure love. About love without possessiveness in it, brotherhood between the two friends, and also what can be done with the excuse of love. I love the main characters, Will, Jem and Tessa. That feels so alive, selfless, honest, pure, and self-sacrifice in the struggle for love. That there is always a chance to be happy in the flow of tim ...more
This was so heartfelt and sad! After I finished reading this book, there was a huge mound of tissue next to me.
great book love the time setting couldn't put it down the characters are amazing!
Loved the first two, can't wait for the next book!
Jasmine Cullen
Another excellent work by Cassandra Clare
Jessica Karou
Love this series more than MI.
Clockwork Angel: Other than the enormous flaw that the cast is identical to that of The Mortal Instruments, this was a great start to the series. I loved the way that Clare handled 19th century London, the writing was beautiful without the similes that plagued the earlier books, and the plotting was engaging. 4/5

Clockwork Prince: Definitely the highlight of the series. I love that Will's jackassness and his Jaceness was subverted, the characters were so much more engaging than before, the plot w

Okay, let's back up a little here, shall we?

Back when Clockwork Angel was first released, I went, "Oh, that's funny. Cassandra Clare wrote that other series, the Mortal Instruments. Looks like the same cover design and theme. So I'll pick it up."


"What the hell?"

Then when Clockwork Prince came around, "Holy Shitballs! That's the new book! Must have!"


This series is better than the Mortal Instr
Tori Stegle
This was a really cool prequel. I loved the fusion between the historical Victorian aspect and the Shadowhunters YA aspect. Tessa, Jem and Will aRE NOT like Clary, Simon and Jace... but they also are. I know, that's confusing. But basically what I'm trying to say is that both sets of characters stand on their own. They have their own stories and there own troubles to face but they can still be related back personality and action taking wise. I like that. Plus, reading this series is not needed t ...more
These three books are one of the very few I managed to read in two days max despite the busy school schedule. I love every single page of it and it's that kind of book which you wouldn't want to put down once you've started on it.

Cassandra Clare has her way of making so many sudden plot twists but each twist contributes to the totality of the story and not a single one seems to be out of place. She's one of the selected authors I've encountered through books who created so many characters but ea

I am so glad this series was written! It's a prequel to The Mortal Instruments, and I absolutely love it. Tessa is beautiful inside and out, and I felt myself being pulled apart as she tried to choose between the two boys in her life. It's a good thing she got to be with both :). Will is the tough guy that everyone is intimidated by, but can't help but love. Jem is the sweet, gentle guy every girl dreams of, even thought he's sort of saving himself by killing himself. Not to mention that his par ...more
I started with this trilogy and enjoyed them. Clare's writing has drastically improved. The vocabulary is better ,the setting is better, the philosophy behind it, though still vague and shallow, is better than it is in The Mortal Instruments. The characters work together better. This trilogy is just better. It is probably the cause of my disappointment with The Mortal Instruments that I'm reading now. I wish that the movie makers would have started here, but since I still don't see the connectio ...more
Alyza Barbieri (Book Hoarder)
Cassandra Clare is my favorite author. She writes such amazing pieces of literature and I wish so badly to write like her. I fell in love with The Mortal Instruments series. Her books surprise me in every way possible and I can never predict what is going to happen. I always end up finding myself reading a book of hers through the day and before I know it I realize that I haven't got out of bed the whole day. She makes you FEEL like your in the story most of all and I love that so much. I'll upd ...more

actually i read the 3rd one on Oct 2014. if you're a fans of TMI series, perhaps would u like to consider reading these? those are prequel..
Sarah Carlson
I'm usually not overly fond of Young Adult literature, but I am immensely fond of this series. The characters are believable, strong, and very memorable. Going back several times to re-read this series, I know it sounds silly, but it feels like I'm encountering close friends.

The plot line - most distinguishably something brilliantly thought up by the genius who is Cassandra Clare - is original and engrossing. It's also flawlessly told.

It doesn't feel like it was written by an author in modern

Don't read The Mortal Instruments... read the Infernal Devices instead! They are like night and day!
Best series ever
