Clockwork Prince Review

I'm in LOVE with this book/series. I cried and had to hug a pillow as I neared the end of the story!! I just couldn't put it down. If you're familiar with The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare (AWESOME READS)


then I highly recommend The Infernal Devices series, which is a prequel and (gasp) better than The Mortal Instruments. Here's the awesome book trailer:



And if that's not enough, here's the Teaser Tuesday thing people do--flipping to a random page in their current read and listing the first two lines they see:

"His uncertainty made Tessa's heart feel as if it were expanding in her chest, its tenderness big enough to hold them both inside it. She wanted Jem to see her, just as she was, herself, Tessa Gray, with none of the Change on her."

I'm still in agony over the ending and I can't believe I have to wait almost two more years (September 2013) to find out how it ends!

(Btw, in honor of the ever-exciting upcoming Valentine's Day Bloghop put on by Cassie, Clockwork Prince has some of the most delicious kissing scenes! Swoony.)

I'm excited for the Valentine's Day Bloghop. Check out Cassie's blog to find out more!!

I keep reading how awesome this book is and can't wait to get my hands on it. I'm just finishing the first book from the Mortal Instruments series. I'm so behind...UGH!

Cassie Mae said...

Yay, another book to add :) And thank you for spreading the word! Eep! So super excited!

I haven't read it yet, but I've read the Mortal Instruments series and the first one in Infernal Devices - can't wait to pick it up. Like you, I absolutely hate to wait for 2 years for the next one!

I need to give Cassandra Clare another try. I read book one of the Mortal Instrument series and I don't know if it was a mood thing or not, but I wasn't hooked. I hear they get better and of course I've heard a TON about the Infernal devices. *adds to list* ;)

Leigh Covington said...

OOOH! Fabulous review! I am DYING to read this. I have to finish the Mortal Instruments series first and then I am getting this. Can't wait! :)

Tanis said...

So would you recommend reading the infernal devices or mortal instruments first??

ps. Im in the middle of reading the Loving Emily book I won on here- loving it!!

Cortney Pearson said...

@Hope, @Emily, and @Cassie--I can't wait for the bloghop either!

@Kelley, @Crystal, @Lady Gwen, @Leigh--I'm so excited for you all to read it!

@Tanis-I would read The Mortal Instruments first, just because that's how the story technically starts and it's fun to go back to the prequel and recognize a few names. But I do know that Cassandra Clare herself has said it doesn't matter which one you start with. :) And hooray, I'll tell Anne you're loving it!!

I have to say that this book was a little bit of a disappointment. Only because Will seemed like another version of Jace. I liked Jem though. And if I'd read this first and the other series second I'd probably like it more. But I do plan on reading the next one in the series.
