Clockwork Angel is a fantastic first novel in Infernal Devices series. If you loved The Mortal Instruments, then you will surely find this book a great match for you. The characters are fantastic, neatly crafted and ten times more enjoyable than in Mortal Instruments.
Tessa is an amazing protagonist, her strength as the main character comes from other aspects of her personality- her loyalty, and her ability to love. Additionally, Tessa is a character who understands herself, respects herself, and she does not let people push her around. She is not your typical action-packed heroine, but what makes her a great character is the fact that she is just a regular girl who loves treating herself as well as those around her with much love, care, and dignity.
On the other hand, there is Charlotte, more of a warrior type. She is an incredible character, kind, loving, and protective of those she loves the most. Other characters you will find in this story include, Jem and Will who join forces with Tessa to find her missing brother.
Clockwork Prince: In the dark world of Victorian London, Tessa, at last, has found safety with her fellow Shadowhunters. However, the security seems to be short-lived when some rogue forces in the Clave appear to be plotting against her protector, Charlotte.
With the help of the handsome Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa soon discovers that Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is much more personal. Magister blames the shadowhunters for a tragedy that ruined his life long ago. To learn the hidden secrets of the past, the trio must travel from Yorkshire to a manor building that houses some untold horrors, from the rural of London to an enraptured ballroom where Tessa finds out that the truth is more evil than she had imagined. However, when they come across a clockwork demon with a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself is watching their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.
As their relentless search for the truth and the Magister- the man holding personal grudges against them leads the right friends into danger, Tessa soon discovers that when lies and love are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.
