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, but 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.


Oh, man. How do I begin? My emotions are all over the place right now. It is only the second book in the Infernal Devices , and I am already in love. I guess I should know, considering how the Mortal Instruments books I did read, how good they were. I could not pull myself away from the story. Despite how long the book was, I finished it in two days and one of those days I spent all day reading. I did feel as there was more happening in CLOCKWORK PRINCE then in the CLOCKWORK ANGEL don’t you just love those titles? They are so unique and will pull you into series just by looking at the cover and the titles. However, now I am torn between Jem and Will. I had a bit of mixed feelings about Will in the first book and part of this book as well. Yet, I could tell how much he cared about Tessa, even if he pretended he did not and tried to push her away. I knew that he loved her. That is why I was confused about what could possibly be the reason that he was pushing her away. When the truth came out, it all made sense for me and my heart actually broke for Will. I cannot imagine having to live with that for as long as he had. It did make sense for his behavior and why he kept pushing almost everyone away.

Tessa, I love her. Yet I feel as if she needs to decide whom it is that she genuinely wants to be with. I think it is not fair to either of the boys. I do believe that she cares about both of them. I saw how she reacts to both of them and there is an attraction between her and Jem and her and Will. I am not sure if it's just me, but I feel as if Jem loves her more that she loves him. I felt as there was a bit more attraction between her and Will. Though I do think that if she did not love Jem, she would not agree. I am still a Tessa and Jem fan and maybe I am wrong about her; maybe it just a feeling I have. I do know that she does love him, just the way she acted around him in this book. I just do not believe that she loves him the way that he loves her. However, that could always change. It is making me curious about what will happen in the next book if the two of them will actually go through it. I am hoping that they will. I cannot wait to see what happens between the two of them in CLOCKWORK PRINCESS . I do feel bad for Will when he finally gets a chance to tell Tessa everything and how he feels. I can’t even imagine how he must be feeling, considering that Jem is his best friend.

CLOCKWORK PRINCE is a book, a series that you will have a hard time putting down. I did. Right after I finished this one, I picked up CLOCKWORK PRINCESS because I needed to know what would happen with all the characters next, especially Tessa, Will and Jem. You cannot help but be curious about them. Those three are the characters that you will fall in love with. To me, they feel real. I am both curious and sad at how this story might end, mostly because I don’t want to have to say goodbye. Infernal Devices is an extraordinary series and one that I wish I picked up sooner than I did. If you love young adult, fantasy with adventure, romance and unexpected twist, check out Infernal Devices . I would highly recommend this to everyone. A story, the characters that will stay with you.
