A Book Review: Clockwork Prince

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Spoilers Ahead

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart. 

First off I want to say that I liked Clockwork Angel more, but this was still a really really good book. I think the only reason I'm not entirely happy with this book is because Cassandra STILL hasn't told us what Tessa exactly is. Yeah, that's the only reason...just a personal thing. My favorite characters throughout this series so far are Tessa and Will. (Will is my official book crush haha!) I am so glad that Jem and Tessa are engaged to be married, but I feel completely horrible for Will. Poor guy. I can't imagine having all of those years wasted on believing a complete lie. Then to have your "brother" take away the woman you love. UGH! Then Tessa needs to make up her mind on who she really loves. I understand that she loves both guys, but that's not fair to anyone. I still thinks she's a bad ass.

This book was full of surprises (like Jessamine going against the Shadownhunters. UM NO), and romance. So much romance! Like Sophie and Gideon (so cute) and Tessa and Jem almost doing it. I seriously hope he doesn't die in Clockwork Princess. I'm not ready to sob over this series.

My rating: 4/5
