Cassandra Clare delivers a new story, with new character (or at least some of them), and thrilling action, though her novel still walks hand in hand with the Shadowhunter world, badass characters, and a touch of sarcasm.
The story follows young Tessa Gray through her adventures in London and a little love triangle between Will - sexy, sarcastic, fearless and at times a total jerk - and Jem - sweet, polite, handsome and mysterious. Sounds Familiar? No worries, our little Tessa has her mind made up already. Characters that push the limits and dare to go far more than whats proper (wearing trousers for example). This story takes us to a whole other era, with troubles far beyond imaginable.
I think Clockwork Angel was perfect. A story set in gorgeous Victorian London, white gloved hands, delicate manners, secret glances and stolen moments. With proper mannered and charming characters; but still with the strong fierceness, blades and magic Shadowhunters have.
Cassandra Clare's piece is flawless, cliffhanger end, filled with desire, romance, heartbreaking action, and a desperate longing for more
