Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks? Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. There was a man who was worthless, and knew he was worthless, and yet however far down he tried to sink his soul, there was always some part of him capable of great action. Sophie Collins - the maidservant of the ladies in the London Institute who becomes a good friend to Tessa. I don't care how well she can quote Dickens (who can even quote Dickens, that's so unrealistic), she's still the same person as Clary, minus the sarcasm and plus a not-so-healthy dose of Special Snowflake.

Though it's probably recommended to read The Mortal Instruments first before reading this, you don't have to since the two story-lines don't interweave in any way and the fantasy elements are explained really clearly again in the first few chapters of the book.

Will confronts de Quincey as the latter attacks Tessa—who was still in Camille's disguise—and Will bites him, mocking him and asking the vampire how it feels to be on the receiving end of one. I liked the creepy clockwork army – that’s where my terminator references are coming from haha – and this expansion of the Shadowhunter’s world. Then they found out a young girl was slayed by the demon, but they hardly gave any reaction to her death.

While the ending of this book is fucking heartbreaking and made me want to punch a certain someone in the face, it also does something I did not expect - it sees Will’s bigotry and it criticizes him for it by putting us into Tessa’s head as she experiences it. The gentle, 'good boy' Jem is Simon in disguise, Jem is being designed to be the weaker part of the love triangle, I like him just as I like Simon, but I have nothing more to say about him. Will totally forgot about the servant boy who was once his friend right after he found a new friend. So we're releasing the 10th anniversary edition of Clockwork Angel ahead of schedule to give fans a chance to get re-reading before Chain of Gold!And I must say he has a dark past and doesn't want to involve anyone in it,even the people he really cares about. Simply put, not only Tessa is an recycled version of Clary, she is also as judgmental, ungrateful and rude as Clary is.
