Sharing is Caring Sunday The Infernal devices Series

This is a weekly meme hosted by Simply Sensational Book Fanatics

Before the Mortal instruments
There were the Infernal Devices

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

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. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say about the massively talented author that has not already been said?! clockwork Angel is a promising, exciting and very thrilling opening to a delicious series. The writing and imagination of Cassandra Clare is exceptional. This is the prequel series to the Mortal Instruments and is quickly becoming my favorite book, filled with Mystery, danger and steampunk elements mixed with sexy, haunting and all things paranormal. LOVING this book is an understatement.

Trailer Clockwork Prince: 

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So first I wanted to give Clockwork Prince a 4 star rating, but that would be unfair just because I had expected a different ending. For me I had craved a cliff hanger ending- it was way too much of a happy one (only my opinion). I enjoyed this book very much. I must say I have come to love this series maybe a little more than that of The Mortal Instruments series . Will is just awesome, funny , witty, bad and gorgeous. You get to see all the characters in an entire new light - the plot was brilliant as expected. Cassandra Clare is brilliant at every little detail she has put into her books, the stories , the characters , the writing left me moved,torn, laughing and flabbergasted. I am a huge, huge fan of her work. I must admit the beginning was a little slow but went out as always with a bang! I had been fortunate to buy the collectors edition so at the very end of the tale there is a little something extra for all our Shadowhunter fans . (swoon)
