In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them... 


I have read the first three Mortal Instruments books, but that was back in 2017 so it has been a while. I do remember how much I enjoyed those books, how I could not pull myself from the books. I have been hearing about Infernal Devices for some time now and it has been on my to-read list for some time. I finally checked out from the library and from the moment that I did, I wish that I picked it up sooner. CLOCKWORK ANGEL is the type of fantasy book that I had always loved and another book that made it impossible for me to put down, I wanted to see what would happen with Will, Jem, Tessa next and the others. CLOCKWORK ANGEL , don’t you love that title? I feel that even if you never read any of CASSANDRA CLARE books, the title and the cover itself will capture your attention and have you picking up the book. I feel as most of CASSANDRA CLARE’S book titles will spark your interest. It did for me. Besides, I love books that deal with anything supernatural. This book was not any different and even though I just read the first book, I am already in love with the series.

Honestly, I am not sure if I would be able to tell you a favorite character, there were few that I liked. However, I did like both Tessa and Jem a lot. I am not sure if it was just me, but I felt, as the two of them should be together. I could tell that there was a special connection between the two of them, just the way the two of them were with each other. Of course, I could see that there was an attraction between Tessa and Will as well; however I seemed to have a hate/ like relationship with Will’s character. There were times that I liked him but other times not so much. I think it was mostly due to how he acted at times; it felt as he was going through quite a few mood swings. Those moods sometimes had me wondering if he actually liked Tessa, it felt as he was not always happy that she was at the institute. As time passed, as the book progressed, I could tell that he really cared about her. It seemed as he even might be in love with her. It was one of the reasons why I was not happy how he treated her towards the end, and I wonder if he regretted it in the end. It feels as both Will and Tessa seemed to be going back and forth with their feeling for one another. I am curious to see what might possibly happen between the two of them next.

CLOCKWORK ANGEL is filled with quite a bit of suspense, action and there is not a moment where you do not wonder what will happen next. There are twists that you don’t see coming. Like with Tessa’s brother, Nate, his betrayal. Even I did not see that coming. What type of brother does that to his own sister? It seemed as if he had everyone tricked, though Will seemed to not trust him from the beginning. I am sure that Tessa and he will never have a good relationship now; I cannot even imagine what she must going through. I really like Tessa; she is probably my most favorite character in the series so far. Tessa went through so much and with everything she had to go through with Dark Sisters. To me, she is strong and determined. I am curious to see what happens the most with her. In general , CLOCKWORK ANGEL is a book that is impossible to put down. I know if it was not for classes, work, I would finish it sooner than I had. I already have feeling that it will end being one of my favorite series. I am eager to see what happens in the rest of the series. A must-read for any YA fantasy fan.
