The Lovereading4Kids comment
This deservedly best-selling series launches with a powerful love story that thrills and chills in equal measure. Sailing from New York, 16 year old Tessa Gray arrives in Victorian London to meet her brother. But nothing goes according to plan and Tessa finds herself instead in the Downworld, a terrifying supernatural place of vampires, demons and warlocks. How Tessa survives before falling in love – the biggest danger of all! – is a terrifying and passionate read. This is a new urban fantasy full of vampires, werewolves and shape-shifters from the bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Clockwork Angel a small number of readers were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Clockwork Angel is dangerous and brilliant. It is extremely well-written and can make you laugh out loud as well as gasp in horror at the unexpected turn of events.'
