Never Trust A Duck or Steampunk Strikes Back

The Infernal Devices (#1)
Clockwork Angel by 

This is a book about an ordinary girl who founds out that she is far from ordinary. Along with that she discovers the whole new world of monsters and men – friends or foes. If wouldn’t have been a story without a romantic hero, but here the girl has even two of them. Sounds familiar? But not everything is so cliché. Cassandra Clare creates very atmospheric and cosy world of Victorian London from which you won’t be able tear yourself away.

Switching to main male characters you will not be surprised. Here we have two extremely opposite and incredibly handsome young men. Will Herondale is like a really spoiled version of Jace (not a big surprise as they are relatives), but I believe that he has completely different story. James Carstairs is his exact opposite – kind, intelligent, very sad and cureless ill. I feel there will be love triangle. 

The book is wonderful. I recommend it to each and every fan of Cassandra Clare’s talent. Many of you would enjoy this splendid fantasy story flavored with nice portion of steampunk.  

P.S. In case you wonder about the title...

“Remember when you tried to convince me to feed a poultry pie to the mallards in the park to see if you could breed a race of cannibal ducks?" 
"They ate it too," Will reminisced. "Bloodthirsty little beasts. Never trust a duck.”
