Clockwork Prince – Cassandra Clare

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.

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! I have just finished this book and oh my god! I have loads of ramblings words to say about this book omg! Right deep breath. So this is the second book in the Infernal Devices series and it did not disappoint, it was a great continuation of the first book.

The start of the book made me smile with Jem and it was just a nice little scene and I loved those moments. Also, I loved the little moments she had with Will, I have never seen a love triangle work so well where you can see she has the same passion for both of them. So this book had a massive surprise for me and that was the fact someone was a traitor I totally didn’t see it coming and it broke my heart and I was just like why, why, why, but then you also feel sorry for this traitor. I don’t want to name her because spoiler, and if you haven’t read this book you may kill me. Being spoiled is the worse. Nate made an appearance in this book and my wish came true! YAY! For wishing shit would happen and the author makes it come true.

SIDE NOTE. OMG. Sophie and Gideon, they are the cutest ever, I kind of had a feeling they may get together and they did, woo I’m happy! They are cute and when Tessa says them in the hallways I was just like aww, and it was nice having that little meeting with Gideon and Tessa, shows that all the Lightwoods was not bad.

Another side note: Henry and Charlotte. OMG that scene where they have the heart to heart was just perfect. If you read you know what I mean and it is swoon worthy! I love it and it made me smile so much 😀

Will. He opened up in this book more than he had ever before and it was so nice to see this other side of him when he opened up over his memories of his sister Ella and Cecily when he talks about them there is a different caring side. Obviously, when he reveals to Magnus what had happened when he was 12 my heart ached for him there. When he finally told that there was no curse the change him immediate was clear and it made the whole of his jerkiness make sense. I love Will more than ever in this book.

Jem. Okay. He asked Tessa to marry him (don’t know if that is a spoiler but sorry in advance) I think that’s kind of selfish if he is dying from this poison then why would he get that involved with someone when it’s just going to end in heartbreak. They don’t have hope for a cure so I don’t understand, (I’m sure if I remember isn’t Jem one of the silent brothers in mortal instruments? I could be wrong but I’m sure he was) So unless there is a cure or some way to save him then I forgive him for asking Tessa to marry him. They are cute together, but we already established that I also liked Tessa with Will so happy threesome I still say.

Tessa. Her character development during this was amazing, the fact she managed to start learning to fight and standing up to Will and his shittiness a little more, I felt she had come a long way compared to the first book and she wasn’t so afraid of her powers and she was more willing to use them to help the institute and help the people around her. Which for Tessa was a big step I felt she had more control of it this time. So Tessa and her development were really well. I felt really bad about her split feelings for Jem and Will and you can tell she doesn’t know who to choose and is really just stuck in the middle but doesn’t want to hurt either of them.
