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.
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 Infernal Devices trilogy.
There is romance and adventure from the start of Clockwork Princess. I still need time and a microscope to watch how she hints at the love affairs; all those innuendos and eye flicks. The fighting, swords and frolics are smashing down the enemy, ripping out the pages and maybe your eyes along with it; and this is palpable from the get-go.
This is the third in the series and it throws a fighting wallop at the reader. I haven’t read the first two books, yet, but you don’t need to in order to appreciate the story. Clockwork Princess commences with a young girl in a wedding dress, fighting to save the lives of her friends. The stakes are raised and you, my dear, are sucked into their world.
This is not the type of book I’d normally read and I am so grateful to Walker Books for sending me a copy as it is exactly the type of book I need to read. Clare sets the scene perfectly and her verbs, oh the exquisiteness of the verbs make me feel faint.
Just as this book started on a climax so it ends. There is still an adventure lurking in the background. More tales to tell and even more fans waiting for it.
I really, really loved this book. This was a very easy review to write because the story was so tasty.
Big thanks to Hannah Love from Walker Books, to Cassandra Clare for being awesome and Walker Books.
Oh and the cover…it’s so pretty.
