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.

    "Steampunk goes downworld"
    Where does Clockwork Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I absolutely loved this book, so of course I got the Audio book. Over all it's a good performance, the only complaint I have is that for some explainable reason the narrator decided to give Gabriel Lightwood an Elmer Fudd accent. It in no way belongs in this kind of story. Other than that she did a fairly good job with the characters.
    The story of a young girl in the 1700s traveling to England after the death of her Aunt. She finds herself in a world she only thought existed in the stories. Meeting warlocks, vampires, werewolves, Shadowhunters, and worse of all evil mundanes. It's a great story.

    "next book nowwwww"

    While people say that I should read the Mortal Instruments books before starting this one, I still went in with this as my first book by Cassandra Clare. I would have to say that she did an awesome job of creating the world and explaining it in a way that I didn't think I had to read anything else prior to this book. It might have helped imagining things, but I was still happy with what is going on.
    The story is very interesting and it is a great first book of a series that provide much more to happen, much more to seek from the later books. So many important secrets has yet to be discovered and the ending is such an abrupt one (in a good way) that made me want to rush for the second book right away!
    With the 3rd person narration of this book, it adds even greater mystery to the characters as we do not know fully of anyone in the book. She has a great cast going on but I would have to say that I am so looking forward to what is behind Will's story. I haven't had a character I like as much as Will Herondale since quite a while.
    Great start to a new series, a new author! Can't wait for more :)

    "Oh Will"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Clockwork Angel to be better than the print version?

    I think all audio versions are better then print . So yes. I just loved to have someone read to me as a kid and I still do. I also love that I can be driving in the car, or traveling and have a story (book) to pass the time. So much better then the radio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Cassandra Clare's works. I like the location and era of this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to pick just one. It is SO good.

    "Lovely!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The story is wonderful and very intriguing. Who is Tessa Gray? What is Tessa Gray? That, plus the shadowhunter universe that Cassandra Clare created with the Mortal Instruments franchise... how not to recommend others?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tessa. I love Will and Jem too, a lot, but Tessa's POV made me feel like I was her.


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

    Henry.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Any additional comments?

    I must admit the only reason I chose this book is because it is a prequel to the mortal instruments series and I needed something to do while waiting on book 6 to be released. This first book was a little slow, but books 2 and 3 were amazing. I actually enjoyed this trilogy more than the mortal instrument series.

    What made the experience of listening to Clockwork Angel the most enjoyable?

    All the characters were likeable, well except maybe the Magester and the Dark Sisters. The unfolding of all the different love stories was old-fashioned and sweet. Just when you think how will this all end with happiness for everyone - then Cassandra Clare delivers a masterpiece! Thank you for making me smile when it was all said and done.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Just one? Wow...I guess it would have to be Tessa.


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

    The selflessness of Jem.
