Clockwork Angel Read Along Day 4: Chapter 3 The Institute

Welcome! It's day 4 of our Clockwork Angel Read Along! Please be sure to visit our link here for our schedule, guidelines and to fill out the form to be entered to win some fabulous prizes.

Today's discussion is about Chapter 3. Tessa awakens at the Institute. We learn a bit about the Shadowhunters and their roles. We also meet Henry, Charlotte and Jasmine, as well as learn more about Tessa's unique gift.

* We don't know a whole lot about Tessa yet, but we know she's a shape changer. What do you think Tessa's dream meant when she heard her Aunt Harriet say "I tried to love you. But it wasn't easy to love a child that isn't human in the least..."?

* I love that despite this being set in the 1800's a women is running the institute, which really wasn't proper for this time period. I admire how blunt and direct Charlotte is with Tessa in telling her about the Shadowhunter world and their role in keeping the peace. What are your first impressions with Charlotte?

* Now that we know more about Tessa and her unique gift, do you think she could pose a threat to the shadowhunters if she were to fall into the wrong hands or do you think she'll become their strongest ally?
