Quick Review: "Clockwork Princess" by Cassandra Clare

From Goodreads:  Tessa Gray should be happy - aren't all brides happy?  Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.

A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.

My Thoughts:  I can't believe it's over!  I have said it before and will say it again, the Infernal Devices is so much better than the Mortal Instruments. I loved this whole series and I loved the way the author wrapped it all up  

I could not put this book down at all!  I loved all the little romances that popped up and all the action that was going on as the Shadowhunters tried to fight and stop Mortmain.  I also enjoyed finally finding out the truth of Tessa's background, it wasn't exactly what I expected but it was still pretty cool!  The one thing I wasn't expecting was how emotional this book made me.  There were some really sad moments and some really surprising ones.  I almost want to go back and read some of the Mortal Instruments again after finishing this book because of some of the information that came to light.  I also must say that while I really like all of the characters in this series, I really love Magnus.  I want him to have his own book!

Clockwork Princess was a great finale to the Infernal Devices series.  I would recommend not looking at the family tree at the beginning of the book; there were so many spoilers on it!  I read a review that mentioned this so I had to try really hard not to look at it! Sorry for gushing so much but I think everyone should read this series because it is so awesome!  4 stars.


  1. I loved this book to! Definitely think this book is so much better than The Mortal Instruments, but I'm still looking forward to the next one. And the third trilogy about Jem's great-great-and-so-on niece. And yes, I'm the one who was spoiled by the family tree, but still wound up enjoying myself.

    And you know there are Magnus books right? She's doing them as a 10-part ebook series, although supposedly once they're all out there's plans to release them as a print book as well.

    1. I didn't know there were Magnus books! I am going to have to read those!!
