Here are some new fiction titles we've put out on display here at Hardesty:
When sixteen-year-old orphan Tessa Gray's older brother suddenly vanishes, her search for him leads her into Victorian-era London's dangerous supernatural underworld, and when she discovers that she herself is a Downworlder, she must learn to trust the demon-killing Shadowhunters if she ever wants to learn to control her powers and find her brother.
Clockwork Angel is the first book in The Infernal Devices trilogy, itself a prequel to the popular Mortal Instruments Series. Much like in the mortal instruments series our main protagonist is a young woman, in this case Tessa Gray, and also an outsider to the world of the Shadowhunters.
