Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

“Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. 
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...."
When Tessa is kidnapped by the Dark Sisters, she fears that she’ll be stuck with them and their torturous training until she is given to the Magister.  That is until a mysterious boy busts into her bedchamber and helps her escape.  The boys name is will and he’s a beautiful as her is powerful and mysterious and equally hot and cold.  With nowhere else to go, and her brother AWOL, Tessa has to seek refuge at the London Institute.  Now Tessa is torn between her feelings for the moody, broody Will and the interesting and kind James.  At the midst of everything they will go undercover to find out what truly happened to Tessa’s brother with The Pandemonium Club.  Clockwork Prince is a fantasy set in Victorian London, filled with action, wit, mystery, love, and betrayal. 

I was very pumped for Clockwork Prince to come out because I absolutely love TMIs.  And I have to say Cassie Clare has done it again.  I love that Clockwork Angel was from a downworlders, Tessa’s, point of view because you didn’t get that as much from the TMI series until the later books and even then, Simon isn’t a true downworlder to me.  I also like that it’s a prequel to the TMI series so you see some of the downworlders that were introduced in TMI series such as Mangus, Camille, and Tessa. You also get to meet the ancestors of the Lightwoods and Herondales.   

My rating for this book:
