Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Book Review
Updated: Mar 20, 2021
After the betrayal and revelations of the first book, Tessa has found a home with the Shadowhunters in London. But there are those within the Clave that want to steal the London Institute from Charlotte and put Tessa out on the streets. They care little that the Magister is after her, all they see is a downworlder when they look at her. One that shouldn’t be afforded any special privileges. Charlotte must find the Magister to save the Institute and the very world of the Shadowhunters.
I’m having a hard time investing myself in this trilogy. I love the Shadowhunter world and the lore that Cassandra Clare adds to the series with the Infernal Devices, but the love interest is annoying me. I am not one for love triangles. Although, I have a feeling that if I hadn’t read Mortal Instruments, I may have enjoyed this series more. But after seeing Clary and Jace, Tessa’s relationships just pale in comparison.
Despite my hang-ups about the boys and Tessa, I was still drawn into the world of magic and mystery that the Infernal Devices provides. There’s plenty of action and cliffhangers. Especially that ending! Way to just throw that out and make the reader’s scramble for more!
And I know there are a lot of ladies that favor Will over Jem, but let me be honest, I’d prefer having a Jem in my life.
