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--now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a foreword, and excusive bonus content! "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.

I was hooked from the first pages. I love the world she created, which gaves me classic sort of feeling. (IT takens place in Victoria London). I like the writing style, creative and entertaining. I think I had a good time reading it and be lost in this world.

However, I can't stand Tessa at all. She is naive and bookish when she first arrives. She often takes thing personally and acts childishly. Although I understand she rushes to save her brother, sometimes I find it hard to sympathize with her. Will, and James, I love both of them. They are attractive in their own ways. While Will is so closed and sarcastic, Jem is so sweet and caring. His fragile appearance makes everyone can't take their eyes off him.

Some of the twists that had happened, I was not expecting those, so it surprised me from time to time.
