Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, the first book in the Mortal Instrument prequels called Infernal Devices, just came out recently.

Basic premise of book: Tessa's brother disappears, and she is kidnapped by the Dark Sisters. The Dark Sisters try to get her to use a power that she did not know she possessed. When the sisters' home is raided by shadowhunters, Tessa learns about a world she did not know existed. The shadowhunters take her in and promise to help her find her brother. There are two possible love interests Will and Jem
- both harbor secrets.

The book is set in the Victorian era and is more steampunk than the other series. I enjoyed the story overall although the some of the characters were too much like characters from Mortal Instruments.
Will is very much like Jace.
