In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, while 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 to who she is and what she was born to do? As their search for the truth leads the three friends into peril, Tessa's heart is increasingly torn, especially when one of their own betrays them.

Well, Cassandra Clare has been hitting it big with her recent movie franchise of the Immortal Instruments, City of Bones and then she writes a spin-off she calls, the Infernal Devices, where we are told the story about Shadowhunters during Victorian London. Okay, so, I was very reluctant to pick up this book. But thinking back on how I read and loved ClareΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’s other books and the first book of the series, I convinced myself that itΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’ll take me awhile to ΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬Λfall in loveΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’ with the characters. And when I finished this book. I felt both love and hate. I hated the characters. Tessa, Jem and Will, especially. I hate love triangles and I donΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’t understand why writers find the urge to always include it in their books. I hated how naive Jessa is and how easily it was for everyone to fall in love with each other. IΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’m hoping so much that the third book will help me change my mind about the main three characters.
What I did love about the book was the plot, the action, the machines, the controversy in The Clive (the Shadowhunter Government), the cat and mouse chase to find Mortimer (the antagonist) and overall, Magnus Bane (the warlock). He always likes but always denies helping Shadowhunters when they need someone healed or just to summon a demon when they have a question or two to ask them.
To sum it all up, I am very conflicted about this read. I loved it and at the same time I hated it. Now, IΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’m pondering whether or not itΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’s worth it to pick up the third installment that may be the only thing thatΓΖΖΓβΓΒ’β¬β’ll tip the scales and help me make the decision of whether or not I loved the series or hated it.

You know you've read a good book when it's a week later and you still can't help thinking about it.

Well, what can I say. This book is the cliffhanger of all cliffhangers. Honestly I was up until dawn trying to finish the book, it saddens me that the next installment wouldn't be out soon. I loved how the story was more character based, it made us understand why the characters act like they do (Will and Jem). Plus with the classic love triangle that kept everyone on their toes. I feel really bad for Tessa, I mean they're both pretty amazing guys. I recommend to read, no wait, buy the book, I mean, BUY THE SERIES (including Mortal Instuments)

OMG!!! I finished The Clockwork Prince two days ago, and I haven't been able to think about anything else apart from the world of Shadowhunters.
I sat down the other day and I kept reading from my last place at page 150 and didn't stop until I finished the book.
If you are a reader of The Mortal Instruments series, it is nearly impossible to go without reading The Infernal Devices. Both series are so closely linked and if you wish to entirely understand either (or both) series, you can't read one without the other. So many clues and pieces to the puzzle that is The Mortal Instruments are found in The Infernal Devices and vice versa.
Cassandra Clare has put a great amount of thought into the whole Shadow world, to be able to produce two different series, that actually seem to feel almost like one, setting aside their renowned differences.
The characters in The Clockwork Prince are very well developed. I have come to feel as though they are a part of my family. I will never forget them, even when an end comes to the series, even when I am old and frail.
All of Cassandra's books will always hold a special place on my bookshelf and I will continue to recommend them to bookworms like myself.
Cassandra Clare is a very skilled author and I hope that, someday, I will be able to write a skillfully as her.

I LOVED this book, I stayed up all night trying to finish it! The love triangle is so gut-wrenching, I see good things coming as I anticipate the next book in the series. Five stars, a "must have" in you're collection!
"It's got everything; set in Victorian London but with a usefully American heroine - feisty and attractive, natch; it features the Nephilim, a category of quasi-angelic beings and some interesting vampires... a cracking read". (Evening Standard on Clockwork Prince)"
