Clockwork Prince By: Cassandra Clare

Title: Clockwork Prince
Author: Cassandra Clare
Pages: 498
Level: Young Adult
Published: December 6, 2011

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.


I had been dreading reading this book because it had been so long since I had read Clockwork Angel and I couldn't remember anything. I really regret putting it off, this book was extremely good.

The plot development was not slow, I never found myself bored, seeing as to when a certain part was going to be over.

Every time I set this book down, I felt the need to pick it back up and continue on. I liked all the characters, I did feel that Tessa was annoying at some moments, but most main characters are.

Near the end of the book, I'm not going to spoil anything, but my heart broke. I am so upset with Cassandra Clare and her lame decisions. Otherwise the book was great. If you read the book, and want to talk feel free to comment. :)
