"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

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.
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.
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.
Clockwork Prince is an excellent follow up to Clockwork Angel, provided some much needed back story and focuses on developing the relationships between the characters making a very enjoyable story. And as always, some shocking twists.
Reasons to Read:
1.A more in depth understanding of character relationships:
One of my favourite things about Cassandra's writing and her books is how well she fleshes out the relationships between her characters; they're fully three dimensional and each is unique in its own way (much like relationships in real life). The Infernal Devices, in my opinion, is where this is best scene in her stories, particularly the deep friendship and bond between Will and Jem. She is able to include subtle intricacies that are so hard to include in books, but they're plentiful in Clockwork Prince and really allow you to pick up on exactly how each character stands in relation to the others.
2.Flawless character development:
First of all, you need to understand that I'm a Will fan. Don't get me wrong, I love Jem as well, but I have a soft spot for desperately broken boys like Will. But I also wasn't overly impressed with his actions in Clockwork Angel, so I was curious to see where he'd end up in the sequel. And I was positively thrilled to get to see some of the layers lurking beneath his cold and hard heart.Read more ›
