Enjoyable diverse characters,
This review is from: Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices) (Hardcover)
A Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare is riddled with mysteries, misconceptions and characters with witty repartee. The book was slow to start and there were sections in the middle where the plot drug along significantly. The ending and mysterious nature of the characters is what kept me flipping the pages. I wanted to know more about Will and Jem and the rest of the orphans at the Institute.
I had an incredibly difficult time buying the love story between Tessa and Will. I felt that there was more of a connection between Jem and Tessa. Now, I don't particularly find this a huge flaw or anything - I still love Will. I want to know more about him. He is handsome and intriguing and I need to know all the secrets of his past. He isn't the only character I found endearing through his faults- Henry, a Shadowhunter Inventor... None of his inventions work much. It is cute.
The plot was enjoyable, as were the diverse characters. I had fun with them, was just hoping for a little less description and a little more action. (But I'm an action junkie!) This book should be read by those that love Steampunk, Young Adult and Cassandra's other work. I'll be sticking around to read the next installment- can't wait to see the tension rise between Tessa and Will. :)
