Clockwork Prince, by Cassandra Clare

My review:

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this entire trilogy (The Infernal Devices). As for this particular book, I loved that we got to see more of Jem. He is such a compassionate and lovable character. This book marks the start of a beautiful love triangle like I've rarely read before. Loved it!!!

This is book 2 in "The Infernal Devices" trilogy. Set in the same world of Shadowhunters as "The Mortal Instruments" (TMI), this trilogy happens a good one-hundred-something years before Jace and Clary's story. This is a prequel of sorts to TMI but you can read either series separately and in whatever order you choose. Cassandra Clare is on my top 10 favourite author list. I love her style of writing.

Safe for teens, it is a young adult paranormal (vampires, werewolves, demons, warlocks, faeries, etc.) and historical (set in London, 1878) series bordering on Steampunk at times with automatons.


True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second book in the #1 New York Timesbestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.
