I’ve finished this book months ago but it’s like I haven’t. Not really and not permanently. In fact, I feel like I will be forever reading it. The words seem too reluctant to leave my mind and the characters… those will always stay.
THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING.
A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.
Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.
As readers, we risk being swallowed up by many worlds. This is, like all of Cassandra Clare’s worlds always are, a sad and tremendously beautiful one.
1878, London. Tessa Gray discovers the city’s supernatural underworld whilst looking for her missing brother. With the help of Shadowhunters – the demon-slayers who will turn her life upside down – she will understand how special she is. She finds herself in a world of vampires, demons, warlocks, and trouble. With her two companions Jem and Will, she unravels the cruel plan of the Pandemonium Club and must fight it by their side before it’s too late. One battle may change the course of history forever.
Clockwork Angel is the first book of The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. It explores the Shadowhunters world in a way that The Mortal Instruments doesn’t, with some familiar characters but in a different setting and time zone.
