Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare Cover!

Clockwork Angel: The Infernal Devices (Book #1) by Cassandra Care
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: August 31, 2010
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Pages: 496

Summary: Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. 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.

My Thoughts: I think the cover has a nice historical feel to it. But, it's not my favorite, I actually prefer the covers for the Mortal Instrument Series. What do you all think about it?

I really liked the covers for Mortal Instruments series, but I think I prefer this one a bit more. It's very eye-catching and unique.

Umm I have mixed feelings about the cover...it's really cool looking but kind of boring also. It sounds great though : D

Bella said...

Yeah, I also think the cover is a little boring ... I know the book is set in that era, but no ... compared to the Mortal Instruments covers, which are haWt, this doesn't look so fantastic.

I love the historical feel this cover gives off. Its very classy and sexy but at the same time its dark and sort of boring. I'm not impressed. Liked the Mortal Instruments covers better.

Alyssa Kirk @ Teens Read and Write said...

I agree. Mortal Instrument covers were much better. But I'm looking forward to reading this anyway.
