"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.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.

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."

First Sentence: 
The fog was thick, muffling sound and sight.

Review: Wow just wow! Clare has definitely outdone herself Clockwork Prince was INTOXICATING!..Epic Page Turner... Exhilarating...well you get the picture. Way better than Clockwork Angel which I also gave 5 stars to. Which is why when I compare the two this book deserves much more than 5 stars, I'm seriously thinking about adding an extra rating for books that surpass the 5 star rating. Anyways on to the review of Clockwork Prince.

 I am torn between Jem and Will. Especially after the big revealing of Will's secret I love them both, everything makes sense about Will now. Than there is the love triangle between Jem, Tessa and Will...I am not a fan of love triangles but I am a fan of this one, if you want to talk about heartbreaking this is it. There were parts where I dreaded to turn the page because of what I knew was coming and  since I love all three characters just the same it was hard to see their heart get crushed.

Anyways so much happens in the lives of all the characters in this book, from Henry and Charlotte,  Jessamine and Nate, and of course Will, Tessa, Jem, and then there is Sophie who plays a bigger role as well. We also see more of the Lightwood brothers Gabriel and Gideon. And of course Magnus Bane who is just awesome.

I'm also still trying to emotionally collect myself after the ending of Clockwork Prince. Such heartbreak I can't believe I have to be tortured for a whole year before I can get my hands on the next book in the series. Cassandra Clare also leaves us with a major cliffhanger, one that I was not expecting at all!

Overall go read it NOW! I still can't get the charcters out of my head it's like they have been weaved into my soul. Clare I have no clue how you do it but you are amazing.


  1. I hear soooo much about this series. I read City of Bones about two years ago, and then got distracted by other stories and haven't gotten back to this. I think it's about time I pick up more of her books.

  2. I highly recommend her books although personally I love her Infernal Devices series way more then the Mortal Instruments series
