Review: Clockwork Angel


Clockwork Angel
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



An interesting take on a "prequel" series to Clare's earlier series, These Mortal Instruments. I liked the steampunk angle and the heavy take on the setting in Victorian London. Good female protagonist who doesn't wait to get rescued, though she often gets help from some mysterious friends, the Shadowhunters. In the volumes of fantasy novels for teens focusing on supernatural creatures, at least this one is relatively well-written and has an interesting plot. Readers who like this book might enjoy the Sally Lockhart series even more - written by fantasy favorite Phillip Pullman - another series with a strong female protagonist set in Victorian London, though more mystery than fantasy.
