This book will be released on August 31, 2010...
Qui trovate la cover e il plot del nuovo libro di Cassandra Clare intitolato The Clockwork Angel previsto in america per fine mese.
L'opera è il primo volume della serie The Infernal Devices che sarà, anche questa, incentrata sulla figura degli shadowhunters come per The Mortal Istrument ma non ne incontrerà la trama, infatti, sarà il "prequel" della suddatta serie, ambientato 150 anni prima degli eventi accaduti in City of Bones, City of Ashes e City of Glass.
La Clare fa comunque sapere che nonostante i personaggi e la trama non abbiano nulla a che vedere con l'altra serie, ci saranno dei persomaggi gia a noi noti...come ad esempio il Supremo Stregone di Brooklyn: Magnus Bane.
La cover a mio avviso è molto, molto intrigante. Non vedo l'ora di leggerlo!!!
Magic is dangerous--but love is more dangerous still.
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. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
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.
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by--and torn between--two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa 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.
