Clockwork Angel is the first book in the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. Infernal Devices is the prequel to her best selling series The Mortal Instruments. It is also where I decided to start reading in the series.
The main character Terressa Gray was introduced right away, and right away her life is put into danger. Yet, while at no time does the action seem to stop in this book, it is still by far an introduction book. A lot of time is devoted to helping the reader understand the world that they have found themselves in. This has a natural flow, as the reader learns about the world right alongside Terressa.
There was nothing epic or amazing about the series. It is a good read, and I plan to finish the trilogy at least, if not the entire series. It just does not have the special appeal to rank as one of my favorites. Although, as the characters become more central to the story than the history that may change.
