I was not a huge fan of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments. Gasp! I know. But I enjoyed this first book of the Infernal Devices series very much. Perhaps it's the time period and setting (late 1800s London), perhaps it's the infinitely more dynamic characters (Will accomplishes the tortured boy soul without being ridiculous). Whatever the reason, this series is better.

loved it!! the infernal devices are a lot more interesting than mortal instruments. it has an epic plotline. an AWESOME read

Really good start!! I love this book so much!! I read this during a mortal instruments marathon and I was obsessing over the mortal instruments, so when I read this I was still constantly thinking I liked the mortal instruments a bit more... but that`s only because reading it might of disturbed the marathon, but anyways it was amazing read. Will is awesome, but I hope Jem and Tessa end up together.

When sixteen-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. For fans of Buffy and Grimm tv series.

I liked it so much I gave it as a Christmas present to a girl -- there's not a lot of "tween" lit that meets my high standards (must have a plot besides girl-falls-in-love-with-vampire). I look forward to reading the next one.

The whole TID series is soooooooo goooooooood! It's fascinating and I think many teens can relate to the friendship and heartbreaks and love and betrayal while you're sort of finding out who you really are. I think this is honestly better than TMI :/ I LOVE WILL, JEM, AND TESSA!!!!! :D

I think The Infernal Devices are better than The Mortal Instruments. I would pick these up before you read TMI.

Clockwork Angel, the prequel to the New York bestselling series The Mortal Instruments is set in gas lit streets of Victorian London. 16 year old Tessa Gray is lured by the Dark Sisters members of The Pandemonium Club a secret Downworld organization of vampires, warlocks and other demons. Tessa manages to escape with the help of Will, a magical being called a Shadowhunter, killing one of the sisters and a servant who is more robot than human. Will, along with his Shadowhunter friends belong to the London Institute are dedicated to ridding the world of demons. She is fascinated and torn between Will and his best friend James and is drawn deeper into the plot that threatens to destroy not only the Shadowhunters but the world as well. Magic is dangerous – but love is the most dangerous. Compulsive reading as Clare has the ability not only to tell a story but to create a very intriguing other world.

When sixteen year old Tessa Gray arrives by steamship in London to meet her brother, she is met instead by two creepy women from a dark, gloomy mansion. Only when they show her a letter handwritten by her brother does she agree to accompany them to their lair. Tessa becomes their prisoner. They teach her to use her unknown powers to shape shift. Unbeknowst to Tessa, she was born with powers to become anyone or anything. This quality, or gift, makes her highly valuable to the mysterious and terrible Magister. The Dark Sisters tell Tessa that they are to deliver her to this evil man, but Tessa is grabbed and spirited away by two young men who tell her they are Shadowhunters, trained warriors with special gifts who fight Downworlders like vampires and warlocks to save humans. Tessa yearns to find her brother and fears for his life. The Shadowhunters agree to help her find him, if she will use her shapeshifting powers to help them infiltrate a vampire clan. Tessa finds herself torn--does she love the dark and brooding Shadowhunter who saved her from the Sisters? Or does she truly hate him?

"Blue does not go with everything," Will told her. "It does not go with red, for instance." "I have a red and blue striped waistcoat," Henry interjected, reaching for the peas. "And if that isn't proof that those two colors should never be seen together under Heaven, I don't know what is." "Will," Charlotte said sharply. "Don't speak to Henry like that. Henry—"Henry raised his head. "Yes?" Charlotte sighed. "That's Jessamine's plate you're spooning peas onto, not yours. Do pay attention, darling."

"It's Will," she said. "He's being absolutely ridiculous in the dining room." Charlotte looked puzzled. "How is this different from his being totally ridiculous in the library or the weapons room or any of the other places he's usually ridiculous?" "Because," Jessamine said, as if this should be obvious, "we have to eat in the dining room."

Will pointed a finger accusingly in their direction. "You're ganging up on me. Is this how it's going to be from now on? I'll be odd man out? Dear God, I'll have to befriend Jessamine." "Jessamine can't stand you," Jem pointed out. "Henry, then." "Henry will set you on fire."
