  • "Clockwork Prince" [The Infernal Devices Series, Book 2] by Cassandra Clare
    Publication Released Date: December 6, 2011

    Author's Book Description:
      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 love this author's two series' so far ... and the worlds they are set in! I can't wait to see where she'll take her characters and see who will be together at the end of the journey.

    1. I tried to get into the first in this series, but was turned off by the love triangle (permanent feature of YA fantasy?). I know Clare will write a satisfying book, though, so nice choice!

    4. I'm equally awaiting Clockwork Prince too. I adore The Mortal Instruments series and have grown to love The Infernal Devices. Cassandra Clare's writing is like no other!

    5. I can't wait for this one. I loved Clockwork Angel and Will was such a doll. It will be interesting to discover who Tessa chooses, Jem or Will. Can't wait! Here's mine:
