Book Description

Oct. 4 2011 The Infernal Devices (Book 1)
Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. Discover the riveting first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

Includes the never-before-seen short story Magnus's Vow!

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: James, 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.

I originally started this book back in January 2013, but I couldn't get into it so I put it down. I got about 180 pages in but when I picked up again this month I started from the beginning because I couldn't remember anything that happened. The reason I gave this 4 out of 5 is because the beginning was still slow for me the second time around. In 2013 I just put it down because I didn't want to take forever to read it but this time I pushed through and it started getting good around the 200-250 page mark. I did enjoy the beginning but it just took me a while to read because of the slow pacing in the beginning. Of course, it got really good and exciting near the end so I'm very excited to read Clockwork Prince but I hope it gets straight into the action.

Now lets talk about the characters, specifically Will Herondale. Man, these Herondales are killing me. Will is sassy, cute and really bad ass. Everything I love in fictional characters. I love the contrast in his physical features: black hair and blue eyes. *Swoons* I do admit, at times he was kind of an a-hole but I think that runs in the family (I mean Jace can be a pain in the ass sometimes too). The beef between Will and Gabriel Lightwood was surprising to me, considering how (possible spoiler??) their families will come together in the future (end of possible spoiler). I don't really know how I feel about Tessa yet, but so far she's ok. She was kind of annoying at times but hey I get annoyed with a lot of female characters.

Now onto Jem Carstairs. WHAT A CUTIE PATOOTIE. He's so sweet and caring and I just want to go give him a huge bear hug. Even though he can be pretty badass at times I just want to lock him in the institute and keep him safe bc of his petite probleme. Not going to say what it is because thats a spoiler!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great series by Clare March 13 2012
By Fantasy's Ink TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I've read Clare's Mortal Instruments series before and absolutely loved them! So when I first heard she was making a prequel series I was very excited. I just don't know why it took me so long to read it when I loved Clare's previous series so much.

Well as it turned out, I loved this series just as much as the first one. And the biggest reason for that, as it was for the Mortal Instruments series, is the characters. The characters all just have so much personality and when you see them blended together - no matter what they do I always find it interesting because I want to know what they say next and how they deal with situations and other characters.

Though I'm not sure if others noticed but a few characters from Clockwork Angel reminded me of characters from the Mortal Instruments series. Jace reminded of Will, Simon of Jem and Isabelle of Jessamine. Perhaps it doesn't matter too much to people who haven't read either series before but to people who've already read one series it is a bit odd. Not that it really bothered my reading experience, just musing I suppose. Though I hope that if Clare writes more books in the future (which I really hope she will) she'll not make new characters too much reminiscent of her old.

As with the Mortal Instruments, Clockwork Angel is very humorous, I just found myself bursting with laughter as I read through the book. I loved the character dialogue, you could instantly recognize each character simply because of the dialogue. As I said, Clare is very good at showcasing her characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 1 - it does not end Feb. 27 2011
By ada
Format:Hardcover
In book one of this series, the main character, Tessa, discovers that she is more than human. When her aunt dies in America, Tessa receives a letter from his brother to come live with him in England. She gets to England and gets captured by bad people, then saved by good, although troubled, people and she learns that she has the power to change appearances.

She is welcomed to live in a big house with a race of warriors/police, with their own problems: the leader is a small woman and at the time of the novel, small woman are neither leaders nor warriors, the husband is the typical crazy scientist, Tessa's love interest has a dark secret that it is not discovered in this book ... so it seems that the relationship might take a few books to flourish, there is also a best friend with a sickness and an unhappy girl and a bunch of servants who are more than servants.

One of those books you cannot put down, and must reread ... but if you are impatient you might decide to wait until the rest of the series is published before you start reading, because there is not real ending ... the writing just stops.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreaming of Books Review Feb. 20 2011
Format:Hardcover
(May Contain Spoilers)

I had finished reading The Moral Instruments series earlier this year and it's become one of my favorite series. So I was itching to read Clockwork Angel, the first book in a new series by Cassandra Clare.

I remember when I read City of Bones and the way Clare described New York inhabited by Downworlders, it had that New York City urban feel but with a darker side. It's the same feeling I got when I read Clockwork Angel. The Victorian London in this book feels really authentic to me. I loved the way she described in detail all the busy streets in the daytime and the dark deserted streets illuminated by gaslight at night. Its so easy to get lost in Clare's world and its one I enjoy returning to over and over again.

I really liked the new characters and each of them had different traits that intrigued me. All her life, Tessa has thought she was a regular girl and she finds out she has a special power that no one else in the world has. She's thrust into London's Downworld of which she knows nothing about. During the course of the story, the reader gets to learn with Tessa as she learns about the Shadowhunters and Downworlders and she eventually comes to grips to who is really is. Shadowhunter Will Herondale is mysterious and a little tortured. Not much is revealed about his background and some of the decisions he's made. He also seems to be harboring a secret from his past and by the book's end its still unclear what Will's motives might be. Jem and Will are best friends and they look out for one another. He's the character I felt bad for because he has a disability that hinders him. There's the beginnings of a love triangle starting to form between these three main characters...
