The Clockwork Angel (Infernal Devices, Book 1)

Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare This was MUCH better than Clare's previous series. Much, much better. The focus on great Victorian poetry is a lot of fun, and even the more obscure literary references won't fly over the heads of the moderately well-read teenagers who seem to be the target audience here. I'm a sucker for books with dry humor and moderate steampunk elements, so aside from some clunky expository dialogue early on and a few disappointing grammatical errors throughout, this was really a joy to read.
