Book Description

Dec 6 2011 The Infernal Devices (Book 2)
True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Product Description


"A purple page turner."
--Kirkus Reviews, November 2011

“Clare delivers in this trilogy second. . . . Really very well done. Be sure to start with the first in the Infernal Devices trilogy, Clockwork Angel, to best enjoy this tale.”
-- Romantic Times Book Review, December 2011

"Whether it's the overly tight corsets or the smell of dark magic that hangs in the air "like sulfur mixed with the Thames on a hot day," there's something about Victorian England that heightens tensions, both romantic and paranormal. In "Clockwork Prince," the second installment in a prequel trilogy to the bestselling "The Mortal Instruments" series, Cassandra Clare demonstrates her relentless authorial alchemy, blending societal restraint and an otherworldly battle into a steamy steampunk drama."
--Los Angeles Times, December 2011

"This novel offers mystery, adventure, and, most importantly, a delicious love triangle. . . . It will not disappoint fans and it will definitely leave them eager for the conclusion of the trilogy."
--SLJ, January 2012

4.0 out of 5 stars The mist thickens Nov. 1 2013
By Chris
One of my favourite YA authors, Cassandra Clare put Will and Tessa through soap opera, romantic hell in "Clockwork Prince." This drama, Jem's ailment, and the portrayal of London were the highlights of the novel. I'm hoping, like "The Mortal Instruments", Clare prolongs "The Infernal Devices", making it last longer than three books.

P.S. I also like how books, such as "A Tale of Two Cities", are used in the Will-Tessa romance. If you're a book lover, this has to appeal to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare Aug. 9 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Cassandra Clare must be a very romantic person to have created these wonderful series of "The Infernal Devices" and "The Mortal Instruments" which are full of adventure, romance, and intrigue. The character portrayals are remarkable and you get the feeling that you would very much like to meet some of them. I really enjoy all of her books and look forward to continuing the saga in both series. Clockwork Prince

5.0 out of 5 stars Cassie does it again July 14 2012
By Cassay
Well Cassie has done it again and wrote another novel that I could not put down. Clockwork Prince may just be my favorite novel of hers. I loved how we learned more about Will's past during CP and it has made the battle between Team Jem and Team Will so much harder to decide. I still can't pick who I like better - I like them both. There was more politics than action in CP than CA but I still loved it and it wasn't a bad thing as it sets up the story nicely for CP2. Finding out the history of all the characters was fabulous and I wouldn't have wanted it to go any other way. I love Magnus. He made me laugh with tears and being a Team Church fan(because I can't decided which Team I am on and Simon or Luke aren't in the ID series) we didn't get a lot of Church but when we did it was humorous. I like how Cassie has made some of the parallels between the characters of both series match each other, it is like a game trying to figure out the traits that each character shares. I am a bit torn by the ending. I was happy about the one situation but upset over the other. I have no idea if I was crying because I was sad or crying because I was happy.
I can't wait to see what will happen in the Clockwork Princess. If the world decides to end in 2012 I have decided that Cassie's books are coming with me because everyone needs to read her novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised May 19 2014

I was unsure if I was going to like this, considering that it was supposed to take place long before the series. But really enjoyed it and answered a few questions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome love triangle Sept. 11 2013
The Infernal Devices series maintains its gripping nature through Clockwork Prince. This time the London institute, which took in Tessa after her brother Nate tried to sacrifice her, is under investigation. It appears Mortmain and the Magister are behind their troubles, forcing the gang to go after them before they loose their home.

Sure, the gang travels and searches for Mortmain in unthinkable places, but it is the love triangle plot behind Will, Tessa, and Jem that gives us the best diversion. Will's past reveals itself despite his attempt at keeping it hidden, making us see that maybe we judged him too soon. Perhaps Will is the best choice for Tessa after all?

Also, a few new characters are introduced, including the humorous Bridget Daly who enjoys singing mournful songs while cooking.

If you are looking for a book that packs action, romance, and a dash of steampunk, make sure to give Clockwork Prince a shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing, suspense. .. June 15 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this novel and the whole trilogy. If your a fan of Twilight or the Mortal Instruments or supernatural non fiction tales then you will enjoy this trilogy without question . Cassandra Claire does an amazing job bring her reader back to the late 1800's and tossing them into the world of the Shadow Hunter of London. Youll also experience the growth ans development of our heroin as she too learns of the Shadow World and the role she plays within it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, but screaming in my head at the end March 31 2013
I do feel completely attached to these characters by this point in the series, and am going to have to sit on my hands to not find myself a copy of Clockwork Princess yet, as I have studies to do. Couldn't put Clockwork Prince down, loved it. I was definitely screaming at Tessa in my head to express her whole real emotions (I won't spoil anything). I get why she didn't, but I couldn't take it. I agree with previous reviewers, this is definitely a successful triangle, it does not just feel like something thrown in to keep tension up. Sometimes you know 1 party has no chance in the end, this is not one of those. I do not know what is going to happen at this point, though I would venture a guess that Will will win out in the end. The twi-nerd in me has to suggest that maybe Tessa could have a fast growing genius controversial baby that finds a cure for Jem and he could fall hopefully in love with little Elizacie (or Lucabeth).
UPDATE: I read Clockwork Princess(I could not stay away), and I have to say my twi-nerd suggestion wasn't sooooooo far off. I LOVE how people get all passionate about the epilogue.
