I'm a girl who reads and have too many books. You’ll know that I do because I will always have an unread book in my bag and my shelves. A girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. A girl who has a list of books she wants to read.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them....

I have to say that this series is much better than The Mortal Instruments. Setelah membaca serial The Mortal Instruments, saya nggak ngerti kenapa seri TMI begitu booming. Setelah baca The Infernal Devices, saya tambah nggak ngerti juga kenapa yang jadi histeria dan bestseller itu nggak TID aja.
Saya suka sama petualangannya, suka sama karakternya, dan saya juga suka sama kisah cintanya. Meskipun Tessa itu agak-agak datar di awal, di akhir buku dia itu jadi tokoh yang memorable banget. Kehadiran Jem dan Will juga membuat buku ini gak bisa lepas dari tangan saya.
Masih dengan petualangan Shadowhunter, dengan sedikit bumbu misteri dan pasukan mesin yang sulit dibasmi, membuat buku ini lebih berasa petualangannya. Di awal pun, dengan kehadiran Will & Jem yang menyergap pemutilasi manusia, sudah membuat saya terkesan sama ceritanya.
