Thursday Review: Clockwork Princess


Tessa Gray should be happy – aren’t all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa’s heart, will do anything to save her.

Fantastic ending to a fantastic series. I really enjoyed the direction Cassandra Clare took in this series. If you can’t tell by the way I handled the love triangle in my book, I kind of hate them, but this on was handled very well. I loved the ending. LOVED the ending. So much happens in this book and I can’t really explain it without adding a ton of spoilers but I can say the pacing was great!

I’m never terribly invested in Clare’s characters. No reflection of her or her writing, she’s fantastic, but I’m much more interested in the world than the people. I think maybe that’s because her world building is so different, and the events are always so big and important. The stakes are always high. I can’t wait to see what she publishes next!
