“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 herposition, 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....”
As I’ve made clear many times since we’ve started this blog, I love Cassandra Clare. I love everything about Shadowhunters and the shadow world in which they live. Although I had thoroughly enjoyed Clockwork Angel, it didn’t touch The Mortal Instruments for me but Clockwork Prince has definitely put it in the running.
I love that Cassandra’s books show you different characters points of view, it makes the anticipation, at least for myself, much more intense than it would otherwise. I’ve never really been one to read one book and that is the entire story. I feel that you don’t really get to know a character properly, which is why I loved this book and only really like Clockwork Angel. I love that in this book you really get to know Will. He’s not just arrogant and sarcastic anymore. He has a great amount of depth that you only get a glimpse of in the first book.
