More young-adult fantasy novels... they may be my favorite genre.
This is the fourth book I have read in this series. The first three, (known as the Mortal Instruments), are set in present time, While Clockwork Angel, the first in The Internal Devices series, is set in London during the reign of Queen Victoria.
The story deals with London's Downworld, and the Shadowhunters who protect the civilians from vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk. It follows a young girl Tessa Gray, as she travels to England, gets kidnapped by two downworlder sisters, and is rescued by the Shadowhunter. The story continues with a lot of twists and a couple love stories.
I enjoyed that is wasn't too sappy, was a well written, smart plot, and has good character development. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series, Clockwork Prince, and the third, Clockwork Princess, which comes out on March 19. And a movie based on the original series The Mortal Instruments, is coming out this year, can't wait.
