REVIEW for ClockWork Angel

A great big thank you goes out to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me a copy of this book - part of a new series....

TITLE:                      Clockwork Angel

AUTHOR:                 Cassandra Clarke

GENRE:                    YA

RATING:                   4 Stars

Well i finished it! And you know what? It was so much better than I thought. I was sure that I would get lost cause I had not read the previous books, but surprisingly no. It was a great read all on its own.

The main character Tessa is likeable, so that made the story flow evenly. You found yourself liking her and wanting to know more, so the pages kept flipping. The author is great at character development, although I found myself wishing we had more info on Will - who  plays the tortured soul a little to well for my taste, what with being so moody all the time. Jem, on the other hand, is so sweet......

It has demons, vampires and Nephilim (angel/human mix), with lots of action and drama, and just the right amount of twists to keep you gasping. I was taken by surprise when I discovered who the "bad guy' was in the end, which was nice cause most times its predictable.

So, all in all, a most enjoyable read and I give it 4 stars.

Only one problem........I now have to go buy the Mortal Instrument series,, cause I want more of the Shadowhunters!

I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I don't think it's for me.
