This trilogy just seems to get better and better! The love, the betrayal, the friendships, and the enemies are so well drawn out that one can't help but fall into the world of shadowhunters head first. I thought I would be annoyed by the love triangle, but given all the situations the character's are put in, it tragically makes sense. I can't even decide between Jem and Will because they are both so great in completely opposite ways. And of course the book ended with a cliff hanger! I'm starting to think Cassandra Clare is the queen of suspense, because right when I think that the book will end pretty much tied up, something turns up and happens! I absolutely loved it though and can't wait to finish the series. ( )

I came to a conclusion that Clockwork Prince is the kind of book which you should just read all at once. I read the first third of the book in about three weeks, and it seemed dull and boring. But when I finally sat down, giving it an eighteenth chance to impress me and forgetting all YA stereotypes, I enjoyed it immensely and read it in one go.

The story is compelling, the romance - passionate, the villain - mysterious. Treasury, lies, love triangle, an air of mystery and undiscovered history - what else could you possibly want to forget all about the real world and live in Victorian London for some hours? I'd probably want less cliches and a more compelling writing, but we're not talking about Russian authors using sophisticated words and stylistic devices here, right?

And reading the first two books already I can assure everyone that you might just as well start them from the 100th page - you won't miss a thing and the actual action will just have begun. ( )

Epigraph
"I wish you to know that you have been the last to dream of my soul....Since I knew you, I have been troubled by a remorse that I thought would never reproach me again, and have heard whispers from old voices impelling me upward, that I thought were silent for ever. I have had unformed ideas of striving afresh, beginning anew, shaking off sloth and sensuality, and fighting out the abandoned fight. A dream, all a dream, that ends in nothing..."

~ Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Book description
The special Collector’s First Edition will include a never-before-seen letter from Will to his family!
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.
