Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare

I actually found this book, set in 1878, stronger than Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, which is set in the present. Both are urban fantasy, in which Shadowhunters among us fight demons and meet with Downworlders: vampires, werewolves, etc. And both feature teen heroines who may or may not be falling for the wrong guy. But Tessa has powers of her own, and a strength of character that keeps her from being a passive player in her own story. Recommended for older teens, due to endless “drowning in his kisses”, and graphic fighting of evil creatures.
