My Rating★★★

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.

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

My Review:

I have heard so many people getting excited over the upcoming release of Clockwork Prince, and i heard that it was the second book of The Infernal Devices. So i just HAD to get my hands on the first book, which is Clockwork Angel. Now i finally understand what all that fuss about Clockwork Prince is about, because i just cant WAIT to start reading it too. 
Clockwork Angel was a-ma-zing. I loved it so much! The characters were brilliant, and i found no one annoying. I loved how everything was in this book. Vampires, warlocks, demons, you name it. Tessa never annoyed me at first, and she never did annoy me at any point. I imagined her as a petite, quiet girl, but was also very strong. How she would do anything for her brother touched me. I loved the fights that happened, when they would start, i would just read and read and read because it was so exciting! After i read a page, and i wanted to stop at it, i couldnt, because id be eager as to what would happen in the next page. 
*sigh* Will and Jem. Ah how i would love these 2 boys to appear infront of me right now. Jem's haaaaiirrrr. I LOVE HIM! I might actually say that i liked Jem a bit more than Will, because Will's attitude frustrated me at first, but i still love him too. Actually i might like Will more. UGH i cannot decide. How can someone NOT love these amazing, beautiful, strong boys? It still frustrates me that i do not know much about Will, and how everything about him is so secretive, but i guess that's why there is another book right?  
Tessa & Will, or Tessa & Jem? I have finished the book, and yet i do not know if Will truly does love Tessa, or vice versa. I dont even know if Jem likes her either, i mean, he did show signs and stuff, but i neeed prooooof! Hehe. Anyways overall, it was an amazing story. So entertaining, very fun and exciting! 
Honestly if i saw that cover in a library, i would have never picked it up. But im GLAD i read this book! 

Happy Reading <3

  7. YAY!!!! I loved this book too :) I can't wait to read the sequel. I know what you mean...Will OR Jem?!?! It's so hard to decide!!!

    International EVE giveaway


  8. @Jaskirat HAHAHA gaah EVERYONE loved this book! and im glad that everyone did!! Its so hard deciding weather to love will or jem! i cant wait for the sequel too!! Hope its even better than the first one!! :D


  9. I LOVE this book! I agree with you, it IS hard to pick between Will and Jem. Both guys have their appeal...but I think if I absolutely had to choose, I would pick Will. I actually really like his sarcastic attitude! :) There are a few secrets around his character so I cannot wait to read Clockwork Prince to find out more about his past.

  10. Haha Having some conflict over choosing a team? I agree with you that Will's apathy was off-putting at first. It's been a while since I read this, so maybe I'll go back and re-read it one more time. ;)

  11. I totally love Jem and Will too! I think Will and Tessa have this love hate relationship. I'm hoping to read Clockwork Prince soon. I need it badly. Awesome review.

  12. I really enjoyed this book. While I didn't think it packed the punch that City of Bones did for me, I still really liked it. That may just be my opinion too. I really looking forward to reading more from this world.

  13. i havent yet read this one yet! but i am a huge fan of the mortal instruments. ccassandra clare is a GENIOUS! GENIOUS!
    her world is amazing.seriously.i like most of her characters.
    awesome review...u made me more excited to read this :P
