I think Clockwork Prince is even better than the first one, honestly. There's so much character development, which just makes me so happy. Also, all the side characters are gold. ( )

I think I enjoyed this book even more than the first, Clockwork Angel. Now that we know Tessa, Jem, and Will, their stories are even more poignant and beautiful. We learn so much more about Will and his past that led him to where he is today. We learn much of Tessa's story, too, and we see a new side of Jem. Yet, however much I loved the story arcs of the three of them, in a lot of ways, I feel like the best part of Clockwork Prince was getting to know some of the other characters.

Sophie was one of my favorites in the first book, and she is once again a favorite in this book. There is so much to her that makes me glad that she isn't left to languish in the background without her own story. She has her own story to tell, her own history, and I love that we are getting to see it. The other character that I continue to love is Magnus. He is so very different in this prequel series than he was in The Mortal Instruments. He's lived lifetimes between the two and it is just a fascinating comparison. I love that the many supporting characters are brought to the forefront now and then, showing us their own histories and stories.

I love that the characters, although from a different generation, show shades of those from The Mortal Instruments. There are moments when Will reminds me so much of Jace, when Jem reminds me of Emma. I love that continuity and connection.

The love triangle in this one is both heart wrenching and beautiful. I love Will and Jem so much that it is truly hard for me to root for one over the other. There is so much to love about both of these guys,

My Recommendation: This is a great read and I think my favorite thus far of The Infernal Devices. I give it 4.5 mugs! ( )

Clockwork Prince

Sometimes life throws everything at you and makes you put everything on the line. In Clockwork Prince By Cassandra Clare, a fantasy steampunk paranormal adventure book, Tessa Grey has everything to lose and only two weeks to try and do something about it.

In the second book of the infernal devices series we follow Tessa Grey, a girl from america who got caught up in the chaos of the secret world of shadowhunters and ended up a permanent member at the institute. Her place at the institute as well as charlotte's, the leader of the institute who saved Tessa, she must help shadowhunters Will, Jem, and Jasmine find mortmain. Finding Mortmain will allow Charolette to keep her position of leader and she’s the only leader who would let Tessa stay at the institute. Tessa only has her evil brother in the world so a lot is on the line in this book.

This book was a great sequel to Clockwork Angel. The book is targeted for teens and does a good job of standing out among the sea of trilogies. I really enjoyed this book because it really expanded on the stories of everyone at the institute. In this book we meet some people form Will’s past and it really gives a new depth to Will. We also get some back stories of Mortmain and Nathaniel Grey. The book really keeps you engaged with all the conflicts taking place in the institute. The book also really makes you question the character of some people in the book. That is why I truly love this book it expands on everything that made the first book good.

The plot gained more depth, and side characters had more prominent roles. It was definitely a wonderful companion to Clockwork Angel and kept my interest in the series high. ( )

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.
