Genres: YA, Paranormal Romance
Once again I am in love with the Victorian steampunk world Clare has created! Clockwork prince has completely lived up to my hopes for it.
While Will has been spending more time with Magnus trying to find the demon that holds the key to his freedom, Jem and Tessa have become closer. Tesse has formed a new family with the Shadowhunters but all that is threatened when Charlotte’s position at the institution is challenged. Unless the Shadowhunters find The Magister soon, they will lose the London institution and Tessa will be without a home.
Many, many secrets are revealed during this book and a good amount of my questions from the first book were answered. Clockwork Prince gives you just enough to entertain while leaving you wanting more. We meet Will's family and finally discover the reason he ran away to join the institution five years ago. My heart started to soften toward Will, and you will see he is not the rough man he lets everyone think he is.
Tesse becomes torn between her fantasies of Will and her love of Jem’s friendship and eventually makes a decision that will shock the reader. I have to admit that I am a much bigger fan of The Infernal Devices series than I am The Mortal Instruments; the story just seems to flow better.
One thing that Clockwork Prince does not clear up, is the mystery surrounding Tesse and what she really is. Although it was hinted at, I was left with more questions than answers in that area. I’m not complaining tough, it makes me just that more excited to read the next book in the series :)
My favorite parts are always when Tessa changes into another person. I love seeing what she sees through their eyes and how she explains the experience (I think this is a power I would like to have)!
If this is what Jem looks like, then I am in Love :) True to Victorian London the background is foggy and dark. I cannot wait to see what the next cover will look like....Will we see Tessa? I give this cover an A
I recommend this book to YA Paranormal Lovers! Love great "Love Triangles"? Then this book is for you! If you liked this book I suggest trying the first book in the series or Clare's Mortal Instruments series!
