Book Recommendation: The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare

The Infernal Devices trilogy was my first introduction to Cassandra Clare’s writing. I’m glad I picked up this series before The Mortal Instruments series. I found the characters in The Infernal Devices to be a lot more interesting and way less annoying. Also, the Clare’s writing seemed to be less tedious in this series.

The only bad thing about this series is the ending is a little neat, it didn’t feel genuine. However, the series is still well worth a read.

The Infernal Devices trilogy follows Tessa as she gets swept into the supernatural underworld. With the help of her new demon hunter friends, Will and Jem, Tessa faces a battle against evil forces that want to take over the UK.

Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge

When a string of dead werewolves leads to Vancouver it looks like Jade is the murderer. Half-witch Jade suddenly finds herself in the company of a vampire and a werewolf pack as she searches for the real killer.

Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic is the first of six books in the Dowser series.

I’ve always been a fan witches and magic, which was the main appeal this book held for me.

Jade is introduced to parts of the supernatural community she barely knows anything about. In fact, Jade seems to hardly know the depth of her own powers. While dealing with the werewolves and vampire she’s constantly trying to remember what’s real and what’s myth.

The characters and plot are rather intriguing. I’m curious to see where this series takes us. I want to get to know Jade, and the other characters, better. I’m also eager to learn more about this supernatural world.

My Rating: 3/5
