Clockwork Prince

The Second book in The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare

Storyline: 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.

So I’ve been reading these books with my husband and he’s decided to give up, so I’m going on without him! I forgot how much I freaking love this series!! These characters give me all the feels, they’re legit the sweetest most amazing and loveable characters on the planet of books. Things in this book get so intense and dramatic that you literally can’t put the book down. It makes you truly feel like you’re diving into the action with your besties (and a book boyfriend, yes I’m looking at you Jem **wink wink awkwardly because I can’t wink and not look awkward**) I love that even though I’ve read these books before it feels like the first time all over again, it gets my heart pounding and I’m on the edge of my seat. I love it so much! The relationship dynamics in this book are so unique and fun that it just makes me so happy to read. Yet so sad for certain people. Gosh, all the emotions are being felt. If I continue to talk about it I’m gonna spoil everything so I’ll just leave it at that and say that you NEED to read this series.

I rate this book
