Publisher's Summary

Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

When 16-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

    Story
    "Unique and Imaginative"

    I think this is a great novel, and the characters resonated with me. Narration was superb. I didn't give the story a full 5 stars because the author engaged in a writing habit I hate: namely, having the characters interrupt the flow of action to ramble long explanations for the purpose
    of tying up loose ends. Seems like this author is talented enough to tie some things together in a less predictable and clunky way. Still, definitely recommended!

    I love to read to escape. I like to walk in the stores with a good book, browse the mall on a rainy day and people watch while I listen.

    Story
    "Great first book in a series"

    The characters


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Ehle – was your favorite?

    none


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not moved, but it was exciting

    I will be getting book two

    Story
    "Much more than I expected"

    I used to read in genre cyclys -- noting but fantasy for a few years, then only historicals, sagas, a stint with mysteries. Each genre was read to its burn out phase then I'd latch on to something else. I've tried to be more eclectic as I reached the "so many books, so little time" phase of life, even dallied with a few best-sellers to learn what I'd been missing. A book like Clockwork Angel could lure me away from variety. It's so compelling, so richly written it almost forces me to seek the next in the series, then the next. It's only my guilt at neglecting my TBR pile that stops me, but we'll see how long my resolve will last. If you haven't read this book, you owe it to yourself. Just be forewarned it could trigger an obsession if you're not strong.

    "WESSA FOR LIFE"

    I find that the story itself was quite good, I just thought the narrator wasn't for this story, maybe another, just not this story.

    "Loved it!"

    I love this book!
    There is one voice I didn't like listening to: Gabriel Lightwood's. The voice actress did a weird lisp with him, which made him sound stupid. I recommend this book and series!

    "great book if you like romances"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the story as well as the narrator

    A thriller


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Story
    "Steampunk meets paranormal"

    Have read the "Infernal Devices" and "Mortal Instruments" series. When I saw this was offered for $5 I thought I would give it a go. I am glad I did, I enjoyed it. My one and only complaint is the narrator's voice. It took some getting used to. Her voice is a little monotone.

    "Brilliant!!!"

    Cassandra Claire is a world building genius! There is no way I can put into words how much I loved this book. All three characters are amazing in their own right and the author effortlessly entwines their storyline so the reader doesn't know who they love more.... That's the BEST kind of writing around. Thank you for such a wonderful tale!! Can't wait to read the next!!!
