Prediction This novel, Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare seems pretty interesting to me due to its sort of unpredictable, yet intriguing theme on its cover. However, by reading the title, I predict that it will be about an angel constructed of clockwork. Based on the cover art, I have come to believe that this novel focuses on a young man who decides to build an angel, but then realizes that it has special abilities or powers. I think that he will probably inherit powers too, for on the cover, the angel and the man seem to be emitting light and glowing faintly.

Many unexpected adventures came their way and they both have truly changed as people from these adventures.
One thing that they both have in common is that their parents are both dead and they were brought up by an aunt. Tessa’s parents died when she was a toddler and she was raised by her Aunt Harriet.

As she learns what she is capable of, she realizes that the Magister, a mysterious man who runs a secret club called the Pandemonium Club, is after her powers. She also finds out that her brother has gone missing as well. Tessa finds herself to unite with a race of half-angel half-human beings called Shadowhunters to find her brother and to help them uncover the mysteries of the Pandemonium Club, the reason and purpose of the suspicious murder cases of mundanes, and who the Magister is, as well as what his schemes are; at the same time, she struggles with figuring out what she truly is herself.
