Clockwork Angel Book Review

Clockwork Angel
The Infernal Devices #1
Author: Cassandra Clare
Pages: 479 pgs
Reading Level: YA

I was finally able to finish reading this book. I had to stop reading in the middle of the story to read another book that I needed to review immediately. Sometimes I also feel that reading a book on the Nook takes me longer than a actual book. My hardcover of Clockwork Angel is signed my Mrs. Clare and safely put away. 

On to the review. When I began reading I was worried that I wouldn't love the book at once like the Mortal Instrument series. It captured my interest from the beginning. The main character Tessa she pulls you in, especially when you find out her gift if you can call it that. If you ask Tessa its her weakness. I cant imagine being in Tessa's shoes and having to move across the ocean in those times. Then to arrive and its all a hoax. Thank goodness for shadowhunters and saving Tessa from the situation she was in. From their Tessa goes with the shadowhunters and her goal is to find her brother. She meets meets Will in this process, the cocky shadowhunter. Now as far as Will goes, I still love Jace but Will does have his moments and then he turns around and you hate him. Cassandra Clare give you details, that you can close your eyes and picture you are their living in the time. She gives us many new characters and some old ones we know from the MI series. 

Now if you haven't read Clockwork Angel or the Mortal Instrument series, You have to read MI Series first. It will just make more sense that way. Clockwork Angel is takes place before Mortal Instruments. 

Now I will ask you all the same question Cassandra Clare ask me at The Smart Chicks Kick it tour. She ask me "What do you think Will asked Magnus Bane?"

Synopsis: 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.


  1. nicee..
    if anyone is interested in a giveaway im hosting (my first)

  2. I seriously need to stop reading reviews for this book because it makes me want to cheat and move it up my TBR list!

    Great review! I loved the MI series and, from what I've read, I'm sure this will make the list of my favorites as well.

  3. I got this a few weeks back but still haven't started reading it. The reviews are all positive so I should get to it sooner than later, huh? Thanks for the review.

  4. I WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION!! Cassie is toying with us =p I loved this book! Totally agree with your review!

  5. Loved your review!!! It's true, we can close our eyes and picture ourselves right there having tea with Will, Jem, Tessa and the rest of the gang in the Institute. Cassie's writing is so very vivid and palatable.

  6. I'm reading this one right now... It's a great book and I didn't read MI first. LOL... But i'm not sure you have to. It just gives me more to look forward to...

  7. I've been dying to read this but haven't got around to it yet. It's interesting that you say that you should read TMI first because CC says that it doesn't matter which one you read first.

  8. Loved your review.. I have no idea what Will asked Magnus but I would love to know!

    Can't believe some of ya'll still haven't read CA.. I dropped the book I was reading as soon as my book was delivered lol.
