Teaser Tuesday: My First Steampunk!


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:



1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Thanks to this book making the blog circuit, I was introduced to Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, part of the Infernal Devices series, which is what my teaser is today:

"'Such a fuss over a few mundanes.' Mrs. Dark chuckled and moved to stand beside her sister, so that Will, with his blazing sword, was between Tessa and both ladies. 'We have no quarrel with you, Shadowhunter, unless you choose to pick one.'" p. 46

Interesting book, and the pace is fairly lively. I like the writing; it flows. From the back of the book:

"Magic is dangerous - but love is more dangerous still.

When Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother in Victorian England, something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld. Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, who are members of a secret organization called the Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she has the power to transform into another person. The Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. She soon finds herself fascinated by - and torn between - two best friends: James and Will. As Tessa is drawn deep into a plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, she realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all."


What are you reading?

May you find your Muse.

  8. Jennifer, I'm partial to Will, but I'm always drawn to the dark, smart-arsed ones.

    TToria, thanks!

    Vicky, I heard about it forever before finally picking it up. I'm glad I did.

    Cherie, it's good! This one sat on my shelf until I ran out of other new books, because I just wasn't sure about it, but now I'm glad I read it.

    J.A., I can't compare it to others, of course, but I have been enjoying it.

    Shelly, I like apocalyptic! I'll have to check that out.

    Christine, I hope the rest of the series is as good?

    Tina, it's a Victorian (I think, sorry if I'm wrong) setting, with hints of advanced technology. So this one is set in historic London, but there are clockwork robots involved. Other than that, it is Urban Fantasy. So...Urban Historical Fantasy with advanced technology?
