Clockwork Angel

Tessa was aboard a ship heading to London from New York. Her aunt Harriet passed away not long ago and her brother sent her a ticket to live with him in London. Since her brother was the only family she had left, hence she packed up her stuff and got on the boat. Once arrived she was escorted by a man she did not know and then forced into a carriage where there were two weirdly dressed ladies. For a long time Tessa was trapped inside a house and threatened to learn a kill she did not understand.

Everyday the same maid Miranda would come to escort her and if she refused to go meet with the Dark Sisters she was dragged there. They gave her objects and asked her to change and if she could not perform she would be punished. Often her brother's life was mentioned to threaten her. Tessa has manage to change for a few days and the Dark sisters were very pleased with it. They told her that it is time to meet the magister and he would be really happy with Tessa. Tessa was to dress up prettily and meet with the magister but she refused to. On her way back to her room, she asked Miranda who was the magister and why she needed to dress up. Miranda told Tessa that it would be Tessa's honor to  marry the magister. Tessa was very upset to hear the news and so she attacked Miranda and tried to escape the house.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare is set in the 1800s where our heroine was locked up in a place and forced to learn something that she doesn't want to and then her hero came to save her. I really love this book!!! This book was unexpected, full of adventure and filled with fantastic characters. I especially love the characters and I want to learn more about them. The plot is so exciting and there were many chapters that caught me by surprise and kept me hooked. I always have a thing for settings in 1800s with the location being London. This book was set in those times with shadowhunters, downworlders and demons altogether it really was a story that I never dreamed of.

If I compared it with the first 3 books of the Mortal Instruments series, this book is exceeding those. For me, the characters are really more superior in their attitudes and personalities compared to Mortal Instruments'. The fighting was not too much action and or too hard to imagine. The descriptions of places was wonderful even thought it's not a entirely real London. It's a good page turner and it is now one of my favorite young adult books. The ending of the book was just really good for me where my heart was squealing and I couldn't wait to start reading the next book. I'm kinda out of words to continue my review, just know that this book is at the top of my favorite. I'm so excited to read the second book and I'm hoping for many unpredictable things to happen. I highly recommend this book to people who loves stories that are in the young adult fantasy genre.
