In a thousand different ways, Clockwork Princess broke, mended and re-broke my heart. Clockwork Princess was beautiful in all it’s sorrow and joy. Cassandra Clare’s works are always beautiful, but Clockwork Princess is by far my favorite. Clare wrapped upThe Infernal Devices Trilogy in the best possible way, and I can not stress enough the beauty of Cassandra Clare’s art, and though that word is not powerful enough to describe her writing, that’s the only word I have. The love triangle between Will, Tessa and Jem was incredible, and never had I expected it to turn out the way it. Cassandra never ceases to amaze me when she writes, I am forever captivated with the words or her and her characters, whether it be the first to fifth time I read her books. Clockwork Princess didn’t disappoint me, it was better than all the previous installments of The Infernal Devices Trilogy and left me completely shell shocked. Though I grieve that one of my favorite series is over, I couldn’t be happier with the way it ended.
“She had fallen asleep with her head on his arm, the clockwork angel, still around her throat, resting against his shoulder, just to the left of his collarbone. As she moved away, the clockwork angel slipped free and she saw to her surprise that where it had lain against his skin it had left a mark behind, no bigger than a shilling, in the shape of a pale white star.”
Synopsis from Goodreads;
THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING
A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.
Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.
As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?
Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the InfernalDevices trilogy.
