CLOCKWORK ANGEL by Cassandra Clare Book Trailer

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series is one of those YA book series I keep hearing great things about, but just haven’t gotten around to reading yet. The series, which includes City of Bones, City of Ashes, and City of Glass, is about a human, Clary Fray, who gets caught up the world of Shadowhunters—teens who kill demons and monsters. Now Clare is starting a prequel trilogy, The Infernal Devices, which takes place in 19th century London. The first book, Clockwork Angel, will be out on August 31, 2010. Check out the book trailer below.

Publisher’s summary of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare:

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.
