Goodreads Sypnosis:

Danger and betrayal, love and loss, secrets and enchantment are woven together in the breathtaking finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.


A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

My Review:

To be honest, I wasn’t going to attempt a full review for Clockwork Princess, it’s one of my all time favourite books, and I feel like words cannot convey how much this book world means to me!

Like, I’m fast contemplating a third read of this glorious series next year? The Shadowhunter world, across all of the series, are all beloved favourites of mine, but it’s just TiD that has my heart the most! I mean, is there a finer and more epically gorgeous trio then Tessa, Will and Jem? Not to mention an EPIC cast of supporting characters, from Charlotte and Henry Branwell, to Sophie, Gideon, Gabriel, Cecy, and even Bridget, not to mention the villainous Mortmain. Aside from the latter, these characters hold such an endearing place in my heart, and though I finished this final installment once again, and I know I’ll see these amazing characters again, I didn’t want to say goodbye, I was holding off from finishing this, and reading that sob enducing, heart wrenching epilogue!

Cassandra Clare’s books have definitely become a comfort for me, and the Shadowhunter world is immaculate with it’s every detail, and the inhabitants honestly feel like such close friends, I cannot imagine a time where I will not think of TiD and all of it’s wonder, especially.

Happy Reading,
