Summary:

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. 

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Summary:
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go -- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother...


Review:
Reading two of Cassandra's books at one time might not have been the best idea. But it didn't really matter. Because they were so much alike... To much alike I dislike that so much. I guess Cassandra is not my kind of author. Her books were so much alike. The only really big difference was characters names. That is the reason for me putting them both on the same one. Why waste your time with two. I know a lot of people loved this series but.... It is not in any way for me. Not only that but Erin ruined the Mortal Instruments series for me by telling me what happened. The good thing about Cassandra Clare is that she is so descriptive. If I had to choose between the two Series(es) I would choose Mortal Instruments.... No Clockwork Angels is better doesn't have that crap with valentine... at least not that I know of.
