Infernal Devices #1
My friend Christina said : " The Infernal Devices is the main story of the Shadowhunters Universe. Main story meaning the best ". That's why I love this girl. And because she always suggests me great books.
I've been in the Shadowhunters universe mostly thanks to the movie and the TV series. Last year, I decided to give the books a shot and everyone urged me to start with this trilogy. So I did.
Clockwork Angel invites us to explore Victorian London with a lot of magic and a little bit of steampunk. In the Institute lives a team of missfits and soon joins them Tessa, a shapeshifter. While they're trying to find her brother, the reason why humans get killed and Tessa's identity, the missfits create a story of adventure, secrets and love.
I really liked the story, the plot twists, THE MAGNUS BANE GUEST STARRING and the characters. Each had their own personality, very well fit into the era. I know that some people might dislike Tessa's attitude or Jessamine's but let's not forget that this is the 19th century, an era not so very close to ours. I also admired the relationships, especially the sweet and understanding one between Charlotte and Henry. I'm actually very confident that as soon as he concentrates a little bit, he'll make something great.
The first part left me with a lot of questions and that's good because there's a lot of hype for the sequel. I hope it lives up to my expectations and see more of Magnus Bane!
