Review: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare


Title: Clockwork Princess

Series: The Infernal Devices #3

Author: Cassandra Clare


A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

Well I think my heart has just been wrenched out!

That’s what you get when you immerse yourself in a fictional world I find. I was so invested in the world, the plot and the characters that I lost myself there!

Let me tell you I couldn’t put this book down. It’s not often I read a near 600 page book in a day but I needed this story like I needed air!

Will, Jem and Tessa……

I didn’t warm to Tessa in book 1 or really 2 but in this book I did and my ‘team’ changed rapidly throughout this trilogy from Will to Jem and back again…..and in this book I realised I didn’t have to. The 3 of them are an actual whole, their love and devotion pulled at my heartstrings.

I even warmed to Jessamine and I never in a million years thought that would happen!!!!

I’ll leave you with this line that had me saying awwww out loud (to myself!!)

‘And I am – I am catastrophically in love with you.’
