Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, Book Three) by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, Book Three)
by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Clockwork Princess is the third book in the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. Set in London in the 1800's this book finishes up the story of the Devices, of Mortmain and the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.

Let me start by warning you that you will need to keep some tissue close when reading this one, because things do not go the way you think they are going to go and there is a lot of things that happen that will have you in tears, both good and bad.

The mystery of Tessa is finally revealed and we learn how she came to be and what exactly she is, and why Mortmain is so interested in her in the first place. That mystery again reinforces how long this plan has been in place and how many different people Mortmain has used to get what he desires.

The Consul finally shows his true colors when he refuses to support Charlotte and anything that she says about Mortmain, leaving the London Institute completely alone to fight him on their own, and almost impossible battle.

This book does a wonderful job of telling this story and giving us closure to the characters that allows us to but the books away and know that all is well with them. I really think you should read this series. It can be before or after you read Mortal Instruments or you never have to read Mortal Instruments, but the author is great at giving you a glimpse into the mind and soul of the person. They become almost like friends and you want to know what happens.
