Cassie Clare is very good at world building and layering a plot so that you're racing toward the end to see how it all works out. I loved the imagination and historical setting of this book. The only thing I didn't like is how she leaves everything hanging at the end. That's becoming more and more common, where authors don't wrap up each book in the series, but leave readers frustrated and anxious for the next. It's effective from a sales stand point (and I will definitely be picking up the next one in this series), but it does detract from the overall read of the book in my opinion. Aside from that, Clockwork Angel was a fantastic book and beautifully written. I am truly impressed with Clare's writing. The woman's got mad skills. :)
