Waiting on Wednesday #18: Clockwork Prince

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Clockwork Prince
By: Cassandra Clare
Release Date: December 6, 2011

"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." (Summary from goodreads.com)

I love the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices series and I am so anxious to read this book! I can't wait to find out what will happen next to Tessa, Will, and Jem.

  1. Ah!! Definitely :) I read Clockwork Angel and then I read the first two books in the MI series, and I loved all of them. I personally like Clockwork Angel more. I CANNOT wait for this book either! Awesome choice.

  17. The Infernal Devices, in my opinion, are much better then the Mortal Instruments. Cassandra Clare makes you feel everything her characters go through and feel throughout this book. She puts her heart and soul into both of her series, but to me; I think she also enjoys writing these books. This book is probably her best one yet. Everyone must read this series!
