REVIEW: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)
Book Description:

Orphan Tessa Gray, sixteen, crosses the ocean from New York to find her brother Nate in Victorian London, her only possession a clockwork angel necklace from her mother. She is ignorant of her power to transform; the Dark sisters are not. They kidnap her for the Magister, who wants to marry Tessa and claim her power.

Shadowhunters, warriors of angel blood, battle demons and keep the peace in the Downworld of vampires, warlocks and other supernaturals. Orphan teen Shadowhunters Jem, Will, and Jess rescue Tessa and agree to help save Nate. Vengeful vampire Lady Camille Belcourt and her current lover, warlock Magnus Bane provide entrée to the Magister's secret Pandemonium Club.


"If you have a soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shade that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. You are that flame."

Clockwork Angel starts with Tessa Grey on her way to reunite with her brother after her aunt's death. But when she arrives and the Black sisters promise to take her to her brother, Tessa's world changes forever.

Forced to learn how to use her newly discovered power is what her existence consist of until her "knight" in shining shadow gear saves her. A "knight" that will later turn out to by a Shadowhunter. A nephilim who is in charge of protecting the humans against evil. Tessa is introduced to the world of Shadowhunters, Downworlders, The Clave and many more creatures she never knew existed.

Set on searching for her brother Tessa agrees to help the Shadowhunters find the villain who is killing innocent humans and are creating evil automatons. Throughout her search for her brother she learns to harness her power and her strength and will, which is tested many times. Sometimes by the evil surrounding her and others by the residents of the Institute of London.

Charlotte and Henry, who run the institute. Jessamine who is snotty and rude and wants to escape the world she was born too. Jem the sweet guy that shows her nothing but compassion but is dealt a sad hand in life. And Will, the jerk that tests her patience everyday and makes her feel everything at once.
During Clockwork Angel you will laugh, frown, yell and will fall in love. But most of all you will crave for MORE.

More of Tessa's heritage. More of Will's story and cheekiness. More of Jem's compassion and sweetness. More action. More loveable characters. But most of all more of Tessa and Will's romance!

Read this! Cassandra does not disappoint! She will set you on an adventure that will keep you turning page after page until the very end.
