Book Review: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices #2)




Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Clockwork Prince

Author: Cassandra Clare

Publication Date: 6 Dec 2012

Publisher: Simon & Shuster







Summary:



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, but 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.


My Thoughts:


Are you ready for the second book in Infernal Devices series? Well, if you are reading today’s review, means you’ve either just finished Clockwork Angel, though I’m not sure how could you actually not start this one right after you finished the first book. But well, if you are new to the series, what are you doing here? For to my review for the first book or better yet get it without a second thought.

I guess, I just lost half of my audience, but if you, my dear reader, are still here., thank you lots! So, do you remember where we left of in the previous review? Let me get you a brief idea. Tessa Gray comes to London in search of her brother – Nate. She meets many people both enemies as well as friends. And of course she finds love out there, but as everything else it s not easy to love or be loved. Yes, right now I’m talking about how Will turned down Tessa and quite harshly to say the truth. So, what’s his big deal? And what’s going to happen now that Mortmain has got the pyxis and can build the army f clockwork creature?

So, what is so interesting in this book? Apart from many secrets unraveled? Do you remember me mentioning the cutest love triangle being born in the first book review? Here, you’ll have it in full swing, and trust me some characters will amaze you. Yes, Jam being one of them. You will see a fantastic character development in all characters. Many will switch sides and many will shock you with their pasts. But overall, this book is a fantastic sequel to clockwork Angel. It’s one of those books that get better after rereading them. I’m off to read the last installment. And believe me, I’m anticipating it as if I haven’t read it yet! Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below!
