Clockwork Angel

The Infernal Devices, Book 1

Written by Cassandra Clare

A prequel to the Mortal Instruments series, the Clockwork Angel is everything and more. Filled with magic, suspense, and unexpected twists and turns, this book is hard to put down. Tessa travels over the ocean to seek refuge with her brother in London after their only other relative dies unexpectedly. Instead of her brother meeting her at the pier she is met by the two Dark Sisters. Awaiting her is London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernature folk stalk the gaslit streets. Tessa learns that she might have more in common with the Downworld than she ever imagined. Magic can be very dangerous. This is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
