Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1)

“Whatever you are physically,” he said, “male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shade that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. You are that flame.”

One doesn't simply read this book. You become immersed in the world created by Ms. Clare. It becomes your world ~ one in which you personally experience romance, mystery, betrayal, and piercing heartache. You can't help but grow increasingly attached to the characters she creates and their hearts beat within your heart long after you turn the final page. You must have more.

If ever there was a book fully deserving of a five-star rating, it is Clockwork Angel.
