I love books, and I'm into YA. 
Occasionally, I discuss my feels in words.

Clockwork Angel

Clockwork Angel  - Cassandra Clare

I usually don't go for books with dark element. I always thought books with vampires or werewolves are lacking in originality because Twilight made in big. But, I was glad I picked up Clockwork Angel (because I had a book voucher and this book was in the spotlight section), and this book might just made me think twice about books with dark elements.


Clockwork Angel, set in the Victorian age, follows Tessa Gray as she arrives in London from America to find her brother. Instead of finding her brother, she was locked in a mansion and was doing forced work by the Dark Sisters. If she doesn't do as she was told, the Dark Sisters will make sure her brother suffer. Fortunately, she was rescued by a Shadow Hunter named Will. Tessa then finds herself in the world of Shadow Hunters and she discovered more about herself; more about her family and her extraordinary ability. Well of course, what kind of YA book will this be if Tessa isn't torn between two dashing Shadowhunters. 


This is my first book from Cassandra Clare and I see why The Infernal Devices is such a hot topic. So is her Mortal Instruments series. The plot is suspenseful and keeps me reading. The characters are very interesting and surreal. I could almost imagine them as I read. As much as I find vampires to be the cliche species, I just love the Lady vampire (sorry, I suddenly couldn't recall her name). 


Of course I would love to read the second and third book to this trilogy (which are already published) but I haven't got the time to get it. Honestly, the only reason why I want to read it might just be finding out who Tessa is choosing in the end. Trust me, I was so curious I started looking for spoilers online.
