Review ~ Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

My friend Chanzie over @ Mean Who You Are and I decided to recommend some great 5 Star books to one another to read and review for ourselves. This time I am continuing the Infernal Devices series with Clockwork Prince.

Clockwork Prince was a fantastic sequel in the Infernal Devices series! It had everything I love in a great steampunk/paranormal read: plotting, betrayal and plenty of action. There was a lot of character growth, relationships became stronger and we even travelled to York. I think because I knew the characters, I fell into this book easier and enjoyed the world so much more than the first book.

I liked seeing Tessa use her gift more. It is becoming easier for her and it really is a valuable asset for the Shadowhunters. She is able to get information while people don't realise it's her. The relationships that she has built with Jem and Will become quite complicated through this story and it kept me wondering which way things would go. But no matter what, they will sacrifice anything to save one another.

As the story unfolded, I was more and more drawn to the gripping plot. There are challenges at every turn and they manage to work well as a team. The people at the London institute are like a family and it was nice to see what they would do for one another. There are a lot of secrets revealed throughout this book too, some of which caught me by surprise. I also liked seeing more into other Shadowhunters, especially the Lightwood family.

I have enjoyed the way Cassandra has set this book up for the final showdown. I still have a lot of questions that need answers and I am looking forward to getting them in Clockwork Princess.

    You know, I actually liked Clockwork Angel more than Clockwork Prince. I think I struggled with this because I HATE love triangles so much. But I did like this. I still haven't read Clockwork Princess. I'm so nervous!

  16. For Tenma and her friends high hermes outlet School romance continues to be two steps away - front or back. And after the undoukai fendi outlet volume, the gang decides to welcome the summer with trips to the pool and adventures rolex submariner replica at sea. Summer fun in the sun can often lead to romantic encounters abroad. Imagine the encounters that can come up while hanging out at the http://www.dibaq.com/read.html water park. The sun is hot, the bathing suits are hot and hearts are racing. Oh and add some sea-breeze to the mix and the possibilities shot chanel outlet through the roof. Booze, yukata and swimming lessons can easily parley themselves into intimate moments that seem to be so short and so memorable when fall comes around.

  18. I SO need to catch up on some of these awesome series that I've been missing out on. I'm deliberately signing up for very few blog tours in June so that I can read all the books I've been meaning to read!! (Okay, some of them - let's face it, it would take me years to read them all).
