Waiting On Wednesday [12] - Clockwork Angel

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine. It is a feature showcasing upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Like many fans I was instantly sucked into The Mortal Instruments series from the beginning. I absolutely loved it. It was something new and fresh to me. Each book is a great story with enthralling characters. So, it's no surprise that I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Clockwork Angel, the first book in The Infernal Devices series- which is a prequel to The Mortal Instruments series.

Title: Clockwork Angel
Series: The Infernal Devices
Author: Cassandra Clare
Release Date: August 31, 2010

Book Summary:

Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

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.

  1. I really need to start reading Clare's books very, very soon.

  2. I totally loved the 'Mortal Instruments' Series!! I am waiting patiently for the next book - which is funny we are getting it since she so boldly printed the 3rd was the last of the series. lol

    I have the clockwork angel on my wishlist at one of my favorite websites Which I dunno why its my favorite when Barnes & Noble offers eboosk you can read on other readers - not just the nook.
