(The Infernal Devices #2)
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, though 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.

Book 1: Clockwork Angel
What the hell was the hype all about???
1. There was no plot.
2. It was a romance disguised in a Steampunk novel.
3. You would think that this was e-novella (like The Infernal Devices #1.5) because it did NOTHING to add and continue Clockwork Angel‘s story. This is nothing but a freakin’ filler!
I didn’t like Clockwork Angel so I didn’t expect Clockwork Prince would be better, and it’s NOT. Why am i even bothering with this series??? Cassandra Clare is stealing my money!
4. It’s BORING.
5. The drama-rama between Tess-Will-Jem is NEVER ENDING.
6. Tessa is worse than Clary.
7. One measly action scene involving ONE automaton.
8. The Magister didn’t even appear for hell’s sake!
I felt little love with the characters. Well, maybe with Will. But that even went down the drain when I realized what an idiot he was about his curse. *slaps Will at the back of his head* Are you even thinking?!? And Magnus, too. He’s the only reason I finished reading this.
500 pages long and Clockwork Prince is nothing but a bore and a sore.
I said it before and I will say it again: Cassandra Clare, you should’ve stopped the series at City of Glass. Really.
So Clockwork Princess to be released on 2014? So fine with me. Tessa doesn’t deserve either Will or Jem. I’m hoping Tessa Gray will end up dead in the end, but i’m hoping too much. It will be a kindness to kill her, so i hope she suffers. *crossing fingers*
