Tessa is a 16 year old American girl traveling to England to be with her brother after her aunt suddenly dies. She arrives in England and is greeted not by her brother but by two strange women who kidnap her and force her to "change." Not knowing what they are talking about, but afraid for her brother's life, Tessa learns she has a magical ability to change her appearance to another person if she has touched an object of importance to that person. The strange women are demons who intend on exploiting that ability for their master, The Magister. Luckily for Tessa, the Shadowhunters are on the case and she is rescued by the brash and brooding Will Herondale.
Clockwork Angel is the first in Clare's second Shadowhunter trilogy, The Infernal Devices. Although Tessa and Will are not quite as swoon-worthy as Clary and Jace, fans of The Mortal Instruments will still enjoy reading their story as well as meeting their favorite characters' ancestors. Magnus Bane, the immortal warlock, plays a prominent role as well. Readers who can't get enough of the Shadowhunters will appreciate this one.
