Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Waiting on Wednesday is a post where you can write about upcoming releases that you REALLY are looking forward to reading (like I always am :) ).

This week I am waiting for...
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Releasing on: August 31, 2010
Description:
Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.
Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa.
As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
Everyone is probably waiting for this book just like me... and it comes out in 6 days!! :O  I've read all of The Mortal Instrutment books and I thought that they were just purely amazing and my friend said that City of Glass was the last book (even though we both now know what there are gonig to be 2 more additions to The Mortal Instrutment series)!  I got all excited when I heard that Cassandra Clare was coming out with a new book... and series that will still revolve around the Shadowhunters, but just in a different setting (and a different time frame too).
