The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2012 Book of the Month. In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, while her desire for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

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.'

Reviews

'Sheer pace, style and exuberance' – INIS

'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 on Clockwork Angel
