The Lovereading4Kids comment
This title is second in the New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series set in Victorian London. The first book in the series, Clockwork Angel, debuted at number one on the New York Times Bestseller list and spent ten weeks in the charts. Wonderfuly atmosperic and nail-biting the author's writing hooks you in right from the start. This urban fantasy sequence deserves to be huge on a global scale.
But don't just take our word for it, here is a review from Harriet Cunningham, who is an avid reader and also a member of the Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel:
'The Infernal Devices' series is without a doubt one of my favourite book series' of all time. I'm not going to spoil the details for you, the unpredictability of these books is part of the reason I was unable to put them down. Instead, I think telling you my reaction will be persuasive enough.
I fell in love with the story. Cassandra Clare writes beautifully and her descriptions create characters that are so incredibly true to life and genuine. However, these are characters that live in a very different world to what you and I experience, and it’s escapism at its best.
The complexity of the story and the originality of the plot only add to the intrigue and once you look up several days later, I can guarantee that you will do nothing but want to go back.'
Casting has begun for Cassandra Clare's other bestselling urban fantasy series, The Mortal Instruments (click here), and filming is expected to begin shortly.

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices 2) by Cassandra Clare
Still reeling from her terrifying confrontation with the Magister and her brother's betrayal, Tessa Gray is drawn ever deeper into the Shadowhunter's dark underworld of demons and danger. In a desperate attempt to help her friends, Tessa tries to uncover the truth about the Magister and learns that blames the Shadowhunters for the murder of his parents nearly a half century ago. But who were his parents, and why did the Shadowhunters kill them? Determined to unravel the secrets of his past, Tessa, Will and Jem journey to mist-shrouded Yorkshire, only to encounter corrupt Shadowhunters more intent on burying the past than finding the Magister - a past that holds the key not only to the enemy's motivations and weakness, but to the secret of what Tessa really is and what she was born to do. Meanwhile, Tessa's feelings for Jem and Will are growing more complicated, and soon she is forced to acknowledge that any choice she makes will either save the Shadowhunters of London - or end them forever.

'It's got everything; set in Victorian London but with a usefully American heroine - feisty and attractive, natch; it features the Nephilim, a category of quasi-angelic beings and some interesting vampires... a cracking read.' The Evening Standard
