Book Review: Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices: Manga, #1) by Cassandra Clare


Synopsis from Goodreads:

A manga-adaption to the prequel of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, The Infernal Devices is the story of Tessa Gray, a sixteen-year-old American girl traveling alone to Victorian London who runs afoul of the city’s sordid supernatural underworld. Rescued by the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, Tessa quickly finds herself caught up in an intrigue that may very well destroy her new friends – including the two enigmatic young men, Jem and Will, who have taken her under their wing.

My mini-review:

“It’s all right to love someone who doesn’t love you back, as long as they’re worth you loving them. As long as they deserve it.”

This was fun to read! I absolutely loved The Infernal Devices trilogy, so it’s no surprise that the manga version would be just as enthralling! The only reason I wouldn’t give this 5 stars is because of the sheer amount of plot/character development that was left out (even though this is completely reasonable for a manga).

I highly recommend this for any fan of the Shadowhunter world and all that it entails.

★★★★ (4 stars) because the cannibal ducks still made it into this one!
