Review: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - Farah


Title: Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices #2)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publication date: December 6th, 2011
Genre(s): Young Adult (Fantasy)
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Source: Bought (Collector's Edition) 
Pages: 497
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.
 

I consider myself to be very lucky to get my hands on a Collector's Edition of Clockwork Prince! I got to read the note Will Herondale wrote in Clockwork Angel. Now on to my review. The book was amazing. I can't find a word to describe it. At first, I liked the first book better than the second, but the ending totally made me change my mind, so I love both of them equally.
Lets get to Tessa. She annoyed me a bit in this book. Her constant indecisiveness on who she loves more, Will or Jem made her appear as a spoiled person to me. She kept changing her mind over and over, which made me wonder if she truly loved leither one, or of she just loves them because she couldn't find a better choice. 
I loved how Sophie, the housemaid, was more involved in this book. I especially enjoyed her love life. While she might have an ugly scar, she is truly beautiful from the inside. 
I cant seem to choose between Will and Jem in this book either. Finally, we get to learn more about the mysterious Will Herondale, which is pretty exciting. Jem is as beautiful as ever, and in this book, he shows himself more. He doesn't let people take advantage of him anymore, which pleased me alot.
In this book, I got to learn many things about the characters, especially that I finally found out who the mysterious traitor is. I was extremely happy with the ending, and I literally squealed when I was done with it. I can't wait for the third book, Clockwork Princess, to come out!
Happy Reading! <3 
5 stars- It's like music to my ears

  8. In the first book I was completely Team Will, and I still am, but I really, really like Tessa and Jem together. This book had be sobbing, laughing, and open-mouthed in surprise. It was an emotional roller coaster until the very end. These books will not dissapoint!
