"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.
I love reading the scenes with Jem and Tessa too. :D So shipping them. Hahaha I don't know why, but Jem has this amazing, magnetic power about him that makes you fall in love with him so easily. :D He's just awesome!!! I also love the way he's described. He's so beautiful in a delicate, quiet, unearthly way! It sounds so feminine and fairy-like, which is great because this is my type, haha. I'm not that fond of the typical masculine type of beauty. Even Tessa mentioned in Clockwork Angel that Jem looks ethereal; I know she meant "ethereal" in the very delicate, even fragile sense, but "ethereal" still has strong connotations with something celestial, heavenly, and unworldly.
As well as that, it's pretty cool that Jem is half-Chinese and sometimes blurts things out in Mandarin. I'm Chinese myself and can understand Mandarin, so I loved these parts. ^^
In fact, I can't help wondering how much Chinese Jem still knows aside from the phrases he said. Are there any Chinese books in the library? I don't think Jem has anybody to talk or write to in Chinese anymore, so I wouldn't be surprised if he forgot a lot of it. Anyhow, I'm very happy that for once, a Shadowhunter character is speaking in a foreign language that I can actually understand! For non-English languages, I can read some French, but my Mandarin is obviously a lot better, haha.
Aside from my fanatic adoration of Jem, in this book, I grew to like Will Herondale too-- I don't want to spoil it too much, but my change of heart has something to do with his backstory.
Magnus Bane is wonderful as usual, and Charlotte and Henry are so cute. :D
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.
