Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Title: Clockwork Angel
Author: Cassandra Clare
Pages: 479
Publication Date: Aug. 31st, 2010

Back Cover: When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray arrives in England during the reign of Queen Victoria, something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlcoks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Friendless and hunted, Tessa seeks refuge with the Shadowhunters, a band of warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. Drawn ever deeper into their world, she finds herself fascinated by - and torn between - two best friends and quickly realizes that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

 First Lines: The demon exploded in a shower of ichor and guts. William Herondale jerked back the dagger he was holding, but it was too late. The viscous acid of the demon's blood had already begun to eat away at the shining blade.

 My Thoughts: Cassandra Clare has successfully managed to recreate Old England and combine it with monsters, demons and angels. This combination keeps you enticed throughout the whole book and the plot is original.
The clockwork is a great idea which hasn't been used to death or used at all unlike some of the books being written nowadays. The characters are very lifelike and each have a distinct personality which people can relate to today.
The love triangle has been used a lot in books, but Cassandra Clare manages to make this particular love triangle work very well. The book isn't ridiculously cheesy unlike a lot of the romance books which are being produced in the 21st century.
Rating:  4/5
