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


Danger, betrayal, and enchantment abound in the “exhilarating” (Booklist) conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy—now with a gorgeous new cover, a new foreword, and exclusive bonus content! Clockwork Princess is a Shadowhunters novel.

THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING

A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Will and Jem, will do anything to save her. As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

The tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.
