Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare

Release Date: 31 August
"Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.
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. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa.
As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Steph (angel4492) | 28410 comments I'm glad you liked it, Patty. Have you read "Mortal Instruments"?

message 10: by Angi (new)

Angi | 485 comments You know, I really liked this one a lot more than "Mortal Instruments". I like "Mortal Instruments" (and I still have one more to go so far), but sometimes it's really hard for me to get into it. I think it's Clare's writing in general for me... not sure, but this one was more interesting in my opinion.

Miss | 259 comments I totally agree with you Angi, I liked this one much better then her other series. I felt it was much better written and structured and much less chaotic. Can't wait for the sequel!
