The situation at the London Institute has never been more precarious. With Mortmain and his clockwork army still threatening, the Council wants to strip Charlotte of her power and hand the running of the Enclave over to the unscrupulous and power-hungry Benedict Lightwood.
In the hope of saving Charlotte and the Institute, Will, Jem, and Tessa set out to unravel the secrets of Mortmain’s past—and discover unsettling Shadowhunter connections that hold the key not only to the enemy’s motivations, but also to the secret of Tessa’s identity. Tessa, already caught between the affections of Will and Jem, finds herself with another choice to make when she learns how the Shadowhunters helped make her a “monster.” Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain’s side? Where will her loyalties—and love—lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London…or end them forever.
The Infernal Devices! I think I now love this series more than I love The Mortal Instruments. Cassandra Clare has done yet another fantastic job with Clockwork Prince, just as she had done previously with Clockwork Angel.
Cassandra Clare did a fantastic job with writing the book in such a way that by the time I had read the first paragraph I was already so immersed within the world, taken back to the time period which Clockwork Prince is set in. Usually it takes me a while to get into Cassandra Clare’s books – knowing that the struggle at first is worth it in the end because they become addictive at a certain point, but I found that I was instantly able to enjoy this book. Her writing is effortless and her descriptions made the world seem extraordinarily real and vivid.
I also found that the characters developed a lot more and I was glad to see this as throughout the book I got to learn a little more about each of the characters, despite being very fond of them already due to my love of this world and its characters.
I became a very big fan of Sophie through the process of reading this book, I admire her and all that she does, despite being a housemaid I thought that she was a really great and vital character in this book. One of my favourite scene’s in this book was a scene in which Sophie did something to Jessamine, I will not say what she did but I thought it was extremely brave and funny.
With Clockwork Angel; I had become a fan of Will and then in Clockwork Prince I found myself leaning towards Team Jem. I am now officially team Jem! I was so torn at the end of this book, I cannot wait for Clockwork Princess!
This was a fantastic book written by the awesome Cassandra Clare, her romance, action as well as darkly humoured books, never fail to impress me.
