Staff Reviews


I am still in love with Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices trilogy.  Clockwork Prince is the second book in the series and things are really starting to get exciting.  Charlotte’s authority and abilities are being questioned in regards to running the Institute, creating pressure for finding  Mortmain and Nate.  Tessa is still desperately trying to find out exactly what kind of supernatural creature she is, and now she finds herself fighting her attraction for Will and falling in love with Jem.

Clare has the best steampunk world.  (Steampunk is a genre that focuses on the Victorian era and the craziness of inventions. The genre is typically a mix of fantasy and  alternate history.)  Her world is dark and the robotic automatons are cleverly depicted and frightening.  She has such a gift for creating fabulous atmosphere in her novels.  I am continuously being drawn back to her world.  The characters are amazing.  You can’t help but fall in love with all of them, including Will and his facetious comments.  It is also fun to read about fictitious characters who are passionate about reading.  I really like when Tessa and Will start debating about Dickens or other Victorian authors that they are currently reading. I have to say that my favorite part of her books are the Victorian and Romantic authors’ excerpts.  I love reading Tennyson, Arnold, Coleridge, and many others at the start of the chapters.  It really sets the mood and gets you ready for what is to come.  If you are looking for a new series to read, this would be a great choice.

Description


True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second “steamy, steampunk drama” (Los Angeles Times) in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series—now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a new foreword, and excusive bonus content! Clockwork Prince is a Shadowhunters novel.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.
