allies can stop them A fan of Will Herondale are you Prepare to swoonThe Dirty Sexy Attic Scene from Will's point of view yeah it's a little over the top in parts but who cares D YumMerged reviewI don't give many 5 star reviews but this one is definitely a 5 star book for me While I liked Mortal Instruments I wasn't as rabid a fan as I know many people are so I read Clockwork Angel out of curiosity than anything elseand I'm so glad I didThis book is spectacular with everything I'd wanted in the TMI series and The magic and mysteries are compelling and Victorian London is a fantastic backdrop to this steampunk tale about a girl who discovers she has incredible powersand an incredible past Tessa is a vibrant fascinating heroine and all the secondary characters including Will and Jem and Charlotte are engaging and sympathetic I thought this book was much mature than the TMI series so I'm very much looking forward to reading the next two Infernal Devices installments I loved the clockwork army and the clever way Tessa learns to use her powers to overcome her enemies Jem is really great but I LOVE Will I have theories about his deep dark secretand I think he's being cruel to Tessa for a very good reason Can't wait for Clockwork Prince “One must always be careful of books said Tessa and what is inside them for words have the power to change us” ☆☆☆☆☆5 FULLY STARS☆☆☆☆☆ You can find the full review and about this book on my blogI never thought this could be that goodI had started City of Bones the first book of The Mortal Instruments by the same author but it didn't work for me so I thought this could be the same but I was totally wrongThis was an arta fine peace of artI read it in one dayLiterally couldn't put the book down for a secondEverything is perfect and matches and I really dig the lifestyle of the time before two hundred yearsthe classy outfits and the funny teasing“Only the very weak minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry” The plot is beyond goodnessand it has every paranormal creatureThe book is written in third person and who knows me knows that I don't like books in third person but in this one I didn't mind at allIt was perfectly build and the story fits well with characterstheir personality with their actionsthe style of talking with the time book is written inEverything is in the right place“Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks They ate it too Will reminisced Bloodthirsty little beasts Never trust a duck” I also liked the romance in this bookbecause the book needed it and I'm so glad that the author didn't make it a big deallike the reason of things happening because I'm tired with books where only true love and stuff like this triumphThe bonding between characters was so natural and seemed uite realAnd so you know there is a love triangle“Will looked horrified What kind of monster could possibly hate chocolate” The only thing that I didn't like much was the vampiresThis is my personal opinion and there is not a single problem in this book with vampiresthey are well described and everything but I don't like these creatures so muchAnd I would liked if vampires were replaced with any other creatureBeside that everything is perfect“It's all right to love someone who doesn't love you back as long as they're worth you loving them As long as they deserve it” I usually talk in my reviews which part of the book was goodbetter and badBut I can't part this oneFrom the first page till the last onemoments never got boring and there were always thrilling and exciting ones“There's plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes if you wish to look for it” The ending was phenomenalAnd there was also a cliff in the epilogueSo I can't wait to read the next book“If no one in the entire world cared about you did you really exist at all” The story This book is about a girl who travels to London to meet her brotherbut when she arrived there someone else takes her and keeps her as prisonerThere she discovers her special abilities and grows a lot of uestions about herselfOne day she is saved from the Dark house from a boy named Will and he sent her to the instituteThere she finds about the Downworldshadowhuntersand other mysterious paranormal thingsAlso she is caught up in a love triangle between two bestfriends The characters TessaI rarely build feeling for charactersany feelingsbut this time Tessa got me hardI really dig herShe is so finesmart and beautiful and the way she does things it's just admirable WillI liked this character for his sense of humorAnd I must say he has a dark past and doesn't want to involve anyone in iteven the people he really cares aboutJemJem is one of those characters you feel sorry aboutI mean he at least deserved his addictionOtherwise he is a person you should look afteruite a role model“Sometimes when I have to do something I don't want to do I pretend I'm a character from a book It's easier to know what they would do” I highly recommend this book to everyoneEven if you loved or hated The mortal instruments you should read this oneIt's awesomeAnd I really want to see this on screen Pictures from the review are not mine I took them mostly from Google images or Tumblr A lot of Goodreads friends that I have people I deeply respect and whose opinions I actually hold in great value gave this book lots of stars and glowing reviews Friends of mine you know I adore you so please don't take offense at this review If you enjoyed this book then I’m really glad you did It makes me happy when people enjoy literature So you probably shouldn't read this review if you love this book It's nice to know that even though Cassandra Clare's Draco Trilogy ended years ago I can pick up ANY SINGLE ONE of her books that she has published and see not only Draco’s character but all my old friends from the Harry Potter Fanon Universe with different names and physical descriptions but otherwise pretty much intact Because seven really long books just wasn’t enough for them apparentlyIt's nice to know that the snappy little one liners and cheap hijinks are being recycled because they worked so well the first AND second time she used themI don't think I've made it any great secret that I despise the writings of Cassandra Clare so let me get the few good points out of the way so I can go back to imagining a world where authors like this are forcibly chained to their desks and made to read their own stories over and over again until they’re sorry She stopped using so many damn similes I no longer feel like gouging out my own eyes every single time she tries to describe something There is no creepy incest in this book so my husband was spared walking in on me trying to choke the life out of a paperback novelAnd that about it I mean let’s face it if the only good things I can say about this book are that she’s made slight improvements so that I no longer feel the urge to commit seppuku by diving head first into a meat grinder then it’s not high praiseSo what was wrong with this novel Well other than the fact that the characters were almost CARBON COPIES of ones that I’d read in City of Bones Draco Dormiens Draco Sinister and Draco Veritas there was just so much to hate The character building that they actually DO have only exists because she did the work years ago on top of another author's pre existing characters – otherwise they’d be little animated than the clockwork automatons that appear in this storyDon’t get me started on how she wiki’d “Victorian Society” copy and pasted the information into word and then randomly injected it into the story via the characters parroting the cans and can’ts of the time period Not even going there It’ll take too long to complain about that How about her inability to write a storyline that is in anyway surprising Reading one of her novels is like watching a dumbed down version of Scooby Doo I actually liked Scooby Doo before Scrappy Doo came along Whoever made that character needed to be shot hung kheelhauled and uartered – the whole works but you know how they’d go somewhere and they’d be like “Hey guys I think something’s going to happen Hey look gang a perfectly inconspicuous diving mask I WONDER IF THIS COULD BE A CLUE WINKWINKNUDGENUDGE FOR ALL THE FIVE YEAR OLD KIDS PLAYING AT HOME”In Clockwork Angel Clare practically flags you down makes you come look VERY hard at her clue that is painted bright bright red and poorly hidden behind her back while she insists that it’s not actually there and giggles every time she tries to make you not look at her ENORMOUS FLIPPIN' CLUE She insists on this behaviour until finally you pat her on the head tell her that she ALMOST managed to colour inside all the lines The whole concept of this book wasn’t original It was her looking at the Internet culture going “Huh so people are really getting into steampunk eh Hmmmm how can I cash in on this with as little effort on my behalf as possible”She is recycling characters that she built on from the Harry Potter universe years ago She's recycling storylines conversations personalities plot points ideas and concepts from all around her and she recycles her own stuff what little there is of it just as freuently When she was accused of plagiarism for lifting entire paragraphs of text from other authors without referencing it she made a comment that it didn't really matter because hey isn't fanfiction just pastiche anywayWell fine It was just fanfiction who really cares But I'd think after all these years she would have moved on past her pastiche style of writing to something that she could actually claim as her ownBut you know what She can't I feel no guilt in saying that she doesn’t deserve to be published or to be earning the money that she is I will proudly complain about her books until she actually starts to care about the fudge that she’s packing When people ask me ''Who is your favorite author'' I never know exactly what answer to offer I very much enjoy reading LJ Smith’s books But CS Pacat is my favorite MM author And let’s not forget how amazing JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series is Oh and have you heard of Kiera Cass She wrote such a swoon worthy love story And Eliza Crewe Leigh Bardugo Laini Taylor and Marissa Meyer are all new favorite authors of mineNonsense No need to be torned ever again Cassandra Clareis to me an incredible and worth knowing author She seems to be possessing such an overflowing with imagination and ideas and originality mind And she simply knows how to create endearing and filled with chemistry relationships romantic or not Plus you know how sometimes you read scenes in a book and you feel like they aren’t clear or so poorly contextualized that the author’s words are sadly hard to follow Well that never happens with this author And hell she switched from urban fantasy to historical fiction fantasy steampunk with perfection It's crazy so to speak how interesting I find her characters to read about They’re not just fantastically created and developped beings They’re always than that and often they will reach out to the deepest parts inside youand make you realize some things you never have before and open your eyes on others I don’t know how she does it What I do know though is that she has a great talent and that is something I very strongly believe and will not let someone convince me on thinking otherwhise It's how it should always go anyway You appreciate admire love or even crave something Don't let anyone destroy that feeling Because it is true and powerful I fervently and judiciously thought about it andI did not uite prefer this impressive series to The Mortal Instruments one You see I simply think that they’re both very different stories This one for instance contains a variety of new original characters and elements that we do not see featured in the other seriesand that’s great I mean I LOVED this book But I still am deeply smitten with Alec Magnus as a couple and this beautiful couple in uestion is unfortunately yet understandably not present in Clockwork Angel Magnus Bane is in fact my all time favorite book character which one is yours Certainly this book gave me some background story on him and made me learn new things about his character but he still is present in The Mortal Instruments nonetheless which is something that I cannot forget Very awe moment from this book Remember when Magnus says ''Black hair and blue eyes are my favorite combination'' Thatdrives you right to Alec Lightwood It earnestly made me sigh with love and contentment Oh Jem Jem Jemisn't he a lovely swoon worthy characterAll beautiful art works were taken here
