Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince
Can I say I LOVE these books. I am so sad that the 3rd book doesn't come out until NEXT year!! I don't know if I can wait that long. These are so much better than the mortal instruments and I'm not exactly sure why I think it has to do with the setting and the characters. Tessa grew up in the human world not knowing that her parents were not completely human. Her Aunt was the one that raised her and her brother Nate. After her Aunt passed away, Nate convinced her to move to England. Not long after she got off the boat was she taken by 2 demon sisters, nicknamed the "dark sisters" They taught her to use her gift of shape shifting, which means she can take something of another person and change into them. She is locked in the dark sisters house and has been there for weeks before the shadowhunters find her and take her in during an investigation to a mundane's murder. This is a well written book and has a lot of twists and turns and treason on both sides of the fence. You also learn that Will, the shadowhunter that finds Tessa has his own little story he is trying to solve and get fixed so that he can fully love again!!!
