Review: Clockwork Prince(The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

YA Paranormal 

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, 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.

My Review
Author Cassandra Clare takes us back for a second round. In her highly anticipated book Clockwork Prince.Set back in 19th century London. Over 150 years before The mortal Instruments. I must say I devoured this book in one sitting. As always I am sucked into this world. That Mrs Clare has created for us. The world of the Shadowhunters is amazing. I am always left with wanting more. Clockwork Prince made me laugh,cry, and want to throw the book across the room. I was literally on a emotional roller coaster. In this book I feel Tessa has really grown as a character. Shes not just the hopeless girl from New York anymore. She has truly come into her own skin. And others as that may be lol. While they still must face off against those Clockwork creatures. There are many other parallels they are up against. New romances,deceit,lies, and decisions must be made. This book made me see Will in a totally different light. He is not just the handsome,dark haired, blue eyed shadowhunter we all know and love. He has a totally different side to him. One that even Jem didn't know still existed.I definitely recommend this book. For those who haven't read this series yet. What are you waiting for? I am totally invested in this series. I can hardly wait for Clockwork Princess to come out. Which is suppose to debut March 2013. My only advice is that you have a box of Kleenex near by. Your going to need it!
