Clockwork Angel is a wonderful book with fascinating characters and intense scenarios. My all time character has to be Jem (James Carstairs). I find him to be quite interesting. Although he is quite reserved, he is full of wisdom, kindness and is very musically talented. His kindness is genuine No matter how difficult his past has been. Although his past haunts him, he works hard to be the best Shadowhunter, parabatai and friend . Jem is such a light and he brings so much grace and life to the book. I fall in love with his character and I hope that others will too. This book is so inspirational and can be read by everyone. Check out the Infernal Devices series as well as the rest of the books in the Shadowhunter World.
