Mortal Instruments Author Cassandra Clare's Newest Nephilim Trilogy; Infernal Devices, Clockwork Angel Bk. 1 Review
I for one, am a huge fan of Cassandra Clare. She's got a way of grabbing you by the innards and twisting until you scream for mercy. Her style of writing is just my type, and I adored her Mortal Instruments Trilogy. At it's end, I wanted more...no, needed more, and thank our lucky stars, she's answered our prayers with a new trilogy; Infernal Devices, with book one being Clockwork Angel coming out this August (2010). WOO HOO!Here's part of a review of said title from the Trades.com:
Clockwork Angel Lights Fuse for Heart-stopping Infernal Devices Trilogy Book Review: Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1)
As The Mortal Instruments trilogy was wrapping things up, author Cassandra Clare assured readers that there were still more stories to tell set in her world of Nephilim Shadowhunters -- an angel-created race of demon hunters who also dispatch a few vampires, warlocks and other Downworlders who decide to make trouble rather than live under a somewhat shakey peace accord.
Set a century prior to the events of The Mortal Instruments, Clockwork Angel takes the reader away from New York to the London Institute, run by a young Shadowhunter couple, Henry and Charlotte. The focus of the story is Tessa Gray -- a sixteen year old girl with nothing left to her name, arriving in London on a steamer at the behest of her brother. But no sooner than she lands, she is abducted by a pair of warlocks who have nefarious plans for the girl. As a by-product of a murder investigation, Tessa makes the acquaintance of the dashing Will Herondale, a Shadowhunter following up some magic-involved killings of mundanes in Whitechapel.
Clare has successfully bottled lightning for a second time, and while one book does not a trilogy make, if the current tone and pace is maintained readers should have no concerns at all that the remainder of The Infernal Devices is going to be just as much of a non-stop thrill ride as was The Mortal Instruments.
