Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare Book Summary

Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. Discover the “compulsively readable” (Booklist) first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series! Clockwork Angel is a Shadowhunters novel.

When 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 a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform 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 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.

Clockwork Angel (Cassandra Clare) Book Reviews

GorgeouseeeeeI have to say, I loved these series more than TMI and that's allot to say! It was so amazing with just the right amount of everything. I love the characters so much and the way Cassandra makes them so flipping irresistible. I. Was dead when the series ended. Can't wait for her next boookkks!!!.Score: 5/5

WonderfulCassandra Clare is an amazing writer. This whole series is amazing.Score: 5/5

Great Beginning To A New SeriesImpressive... Most impressive. I throughly enjoyed this book. I've read Cassandra Claire from the start. With TII, I thought it was well above average, but I get bored with a series after awhile. I have this compulsion to finish a series even if I hated the first book. I'm looking at you brooding teen vampire and werewolves (Simon gets a free pass). Going to bookstore to find anything other than sappy vampire romance is an infuriating experience. Cassandra Claire is a breath of fresh air. I digress, I took a chance on the author's second series knowing if TCA sucked I'd still fork over $60 just to find out how it ends. I'm very happy I did. Victorian Era Steampunk!?! What could be better? If she'd thrown in alien pirates she'd of had all the bases covered. It's amazing and fast paced. Detailed, but still gives room for the imagination to play. Never stop writing installments of this series Cassandra, I beseech you! I would read 15 stories about Tessa. The only other YA series I enjoy this much are Mr. Meyer's Bloody Jack books and O.R. Melling's Chronicles of Faerie. And the White Cat series by Holly Black. You've got a place in my heart now. Don't let me down.Score: 5/5

Definitely Worth The Read!By far, this book impressed me. I honestly fell in love with each character with ease and comfort. Cassandra Clare has done it again, props to her and her amazing writing!.Score: 5/5

Loved it!I decided to read this before the mortal instruments and it was amazing! The beginning is kinda slow I'll admit but it gets really good! I luv Jem!!!!!!!.Score: 5/5

Amazing Like the rest!!This book is just as amazing as all of Cassandra Clare's other wonderful creations!!!.Score: 5/5

Half/halfSo I was soooo into it and it was amazing I loved it was so awesome but I just don't understand how this leads up to the mortal instruments plus will is like so confusing who's cecily why did he keep saying he lost everything and why was he acting like such a jerk to Tessa.....ya so I loved it but I kinda got sad/disappointed at the end.Score: 4/5

Loved it!!I Love this book! It's amazing!! It's nit as good as the mortal instrument series but it works. I still wanna know why will kept say "I've lost everything. Everything." ugghh!! But the weird thing is that I'm only 13 and these books are amazing I wish she would come out with alot more books! These are really addicting and I can't set it down! Usually in school the teacher has to tear the book away from me cause I love it so much haha! Anyways these books are amazing! I hope she comes out with alot more! :).Score: 5/5

Clockwork AngelI did enjoy this book, however there seemed to be a weak ending or no ending at all. I hope that means there will be more adventures with these characters. Leaving Tessa in such uncertainty is unfair. I'm also hoping the the actual clockwork angel might become more prominent if there is a 2nd book..Score: 3/5

Loved this bookI loved this book. It starts out a little slow but once you get into it it is hard to put down. It is very much addicting as the other books I have read from this author. If you liked any of the City books you will like this one too.....Score: 5/5

Truly Exceptional and a Definite Must Read!I can't tell you how much I am in love with "The Infernal Devices" trilogy and all of Cassandra Clare's novels! She is a phenomenal author who has created an amazing story line and a wonderful array of characters. I absolutely love Will Herondale, Tessa Gray, James Carstairs, and Magnus Bane, just to name a few. "Clockwork Angel" is the best of all worlds because it incorporates romance, action and adventure, humor, drama, and suspense. Everyone should read not only "Clockwork Angel," but all of Cassandra Clare's novels! *Update* I have just finished reading "Clockwork Angel" for the fourth time, and it still does not cease to amaze me every single time! Every time that I read it, I fall more deeply in love with the characters, namely Will, Tessa, and Jem. Cassandra certainly knows how to create and portray characters in a way that is nearly impossible for you not to love them. Will is my utter favorite and is the complete and perfect package - he is humorous, witty, intelligent [(most of the time:)], handsome, sarcastic, has amazing fighting skills, and so many more attractive qualities that I can't possibly list them all. Tessa is my all-time favorite heroine - she is intelligent, kind, sincere, witty, confident, brave, and has a fiercely protective and loving nature towards those she loves and cares for deeply. Jem is sweet, kind and sincere, patient, loving, intelligent, quiet, and very caring and affectionate towards everyone. There are so many other exceptional characters in this novel, that it's hard to name all of them and their good qualities. All in all, "Clockwork Angel" is truly a masterpiece of young adult literature that will continue to blow me away again and again!.Score: 5/5

HOLY CRAP!Okay, I ADORE this book! It is amazing, captivating and so original, I laugh at other books. This book is a must read! I read this series first before The Mortal Instruments, and you NEED to read both. They are so amazing, I couldnt put any of them down! And I love how the books are totally different yet, their plots intertwine. I suggest reading both of series, although you can read eithor series without the other, many things are revealed if your read both. Both are a MUST read, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Cant wait the next ones!.Score: 5/5

It's an ok start.It's an ok start for the series though it gets more interesting in books two and three. I usually like the first book in a series the most, just like Harry Potter and Hunger Games. But in the infernal series I loved the 3rd book the most. Clockwork Princess. It's like the twilight series, first book almost boring and the last one Breaking Dawn is the bomb..Score: 3/5

One of my all-time favorites!This book was a little hard to start, but is very addicting and a worthwhile read. I am currently mesmerized by Jem's painful history and Will's tortured silence. Both are perfect for Tessa and offer her either love and kindness (Jem) or passion and mystery (Will). I love this triangle and am very curious as to how this will play out. If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it. 💙.Score: 5/5

Clockwork Angel(:This book was AMAZING! But you really MUST read the mortal instruments to understand this book. Because if you dont.. then well... lets just say its like SUPER CONFUSING!!!! But if you have read the books then you find little things that fit for both books. And you finally understand the names for the "clave" and the "conclave" i could never really figure them out until this book. But all in all it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't say better than the mortal instruments.. but DEFINATELY up there. You muustttt buy it. :).Score: 5/5

Poorly formattedThis review is for the eBook, not for the book itself. I actually really enjoyed the book. But there were several formatting errors and chapter titles misplaced and mixed in with the text. I expect higher quality when these publishers are charging more for the eBook then they are for a paperback. It needs EDITING just as much as the physical copies do. There are no excuses for such poor quality at these prices..Score: 1/5

Good book but not my cup of teaEven though this was a good book in general and the writing was very well done I personally did not enjoy this book.I think I’ve read this book several years too late. I was recommended this book to get out of my reading slump. I have not heard a lot of negative reviews on this book .If I had read this book years ago when I was into more fantasy, vampires, monsters, witches, etc. I think I would’ve enjoyed this a lot more. This book had a lot of your typical YA fantasy tropes. I find this too cliché now to enjoy it unfortunately.I like this book when I first started but as it progressed I found myself getting kind of bored and skimming through it. I am definitely over the vampire hype. Not sure if I will continue the series..Score: 2/5

Pleasantly SurprisedWhen I picked this book up three days ago, I had just finished The Hunger Games series so needless to say, I wasn't expecting something to utterly blow my mind like The Hunger Games did. And while I was right about it not completely blowing my mind, I was still completely engrossed in the story. I finished it in three days though I planned on it lasting a lot longer than that. Even though the beginning was a tad slow, I still had to keep reading. I had issues putting it down and read it late into the night even though I knew I had to wake up early for dance. When I would get home the first thing I would do is grab the book and collapse on the couch with it. There were so many questions left unanswered in this that better be resolved in the next book (or else!) Like what's the deal with WIll? Who is Cecily? Why did Will go to Magnus Bane in the end? Why, when he found Tessa PROBABLE SPOILER still alive did he repeat "I've lost evverything"? UGH! I need to know!!!! All that being said, this book did have it's faults. Mostly with word choice and dialog structure. The use of the word "cleverer" really bothered me since it's the most awkward from of clever you could possibly use. More clever would have been better. And the way the characters spoke at times just seemed weird because I don't think anyone went off into long speeches laced with metaphors even then. I could be wrong though. Anyway, it's a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next book!!!!!! Sorry my review is so long, I tend to overwrite a lot :).Score: 5/5

Love It!I was very hesitant to begin reading this book, because I felt like everyone's read it, so what's the the point?
