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

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.

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.

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

Although it didn't feel as tense as the first book, I felt that it dived deeper into the character relationships than Clockwork Angel did. The backstories and character development were excellent as usual.

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

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.
