Cassandra Clare has delivered.
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.
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.
Clockwork Prince is one of those sequels that you just can't get out of your head. It's one of those books that you will start to read and won't put down until you've read the final word. Cassandra Clare has gifted us with this wonderful masterpiece that will leave you wanting more.
In this book their is a more daring plot, some new characters, exciting new scenes and more of that too-die-for romance. Cassandra makes it extremely hard to pick between Will and Jem. Two wonderful boys with such different personalities. But, it's all up to Tessa. Who will steal her heart? But with new information....how can choose one boy without breaking the other?
I can't help but stress how much I love the romance in this book. It's just amazingly thought through; the complications, the characters emotions, etc. I think Team Will fans will enjoy the roller-coaster of emotions that this book provides. And as for Team Jem fans...well, you'll just have to wait and see.
I found Clockwork Prince's plot line very entertaining and action-packed. You can expect the final instalment to be brilliant. Amazing. Wonderful. Clockwork Princess will be released in September 2013....so , what ever you do, please take your time with this book so you don't have to agonize for the next year and a half!
