4 Kiss Review: Clockwork Angel (Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare


Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. Discover the riveting first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
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.

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, 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.

My Review:

Theresa "Tessa" Gray comes to London in search of her brother, Nathaniel Gray, only to be captured by the Dark Sisters. Tessa soon learns that the Dark Sisters are preparing her and tasking her to Change into someone else.

Tessa is set free by The Shadowhunters and taken to The Clave. Tessa meets William "Will" Herondale, James "Jem" Carstairs, and Jessamine Lovelace.

Tessa discovers that what she thought she knew doesn't really apply to Downworlders like herself.

Everyone wants to know who The Magister is and where to find him. Tessa's brother is still missing and there are no clues to his whereabouts either. Who is The Magister? Will Tessa's brother be found? What makes Tessa special? What does it mean to be Shadowhunter? Your answers await you in Clockwork Angel.


This new-to-me author is definitely an interesting storyteller and writer. I found her characters to be real, down to earth, intriguing, honest, and flawed.

The story is compelling, interesting, and quite the page turner. It was definitely interesting to discover that not everything was as it appeared in the story which is what made it intriguing to me. Definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
