"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.
I think that this book was more successful than its predecessor was because of the characters- in the previous book I had a bit of trouble connecting with them, but in this book I didn't whatsoever. I feel that they were all much more complex and dynamic in this book (especially Will, gosh, I thought that Jace was a bucket full of angsty emotions and that no one could top him, boy, was I wrong). Furthermore, this book actually answered some of those burning questions that we have had (as opposed to answering questions with more questions)- like, who is Cecily? What is Tessa? What is Will's deal?
While I am still totally torn between Will and Jem (this series contains, by far, the epitome of a successful love triangle), I must admit that I actually preferred the DSBS- the Dirty Sexy Bedroom Scene (NOT the Dirty Sexy Balcony Scene, though that scene wasn't terrible by any means). I think why I preferred this scene over the other was because it was so unexpected- seriously, I didn't know that that male character had it in him!Read more ›
