Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Oh, the angst in the final book in Clare’s Victorian-era steampunk trilogy, Infernal Devices! With the cunning and dangerous Mortmain still on the loose and threatening Shadowhunters everywhere, as well as unresolved feelings still in her heart, bride-to-be Tessa finds it increasingly challenging to get excited about her upcoming nuptials. Still, life must go on, and on and on it goes for Tessa’s resilient people. As Tessa finally learns what she is and what that means to both Mortmain and the world, the choices she must make will affect Shadowhunters and Downworlders forever. While there are a few surprising twists, this series conclusion seems devoted to resolving all of the loose threads and mysteries from the earlier books. Fans will feel great satisfaction in learning the answers to all of the questions from the previous volumes, but they’ll likely feel sadness, too, as the exhilarating saga comes to a close. A must-read for Clare’s fans, this is also highly recommended for followers of Gail Carriger’s Finishing School books and Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Blood series. Grades 9-12. --Candice Mack --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

***SPOILER FREE IF YOU'VE READ THE SERIES***

I was so afraid to start reading this book. Truth be told, The Infernal Devices is my favorite of the two series, although I still hold a lot of love for The Mortal Instruments. Something about the Victorian setting or Tessa, who I can relate to more than Clary, grabbed me from the first word. The first thing you should know is that you will have many, many questions answered in this book. Some of those questions carry over to TMI and then some bounce back again and won't be entirely answered until City of Heavenly Fire is released. (Those questions aren't integral to the story, so you can still read one series without having to read the other.) There was intense action and suspense, and I was so pleased at how much the women in this book stepped up and fought, both physically and emotionally. There were so many difficult situations and decisions that I'm not exactly sure how it all fit in to one final book, but it did, and brilliantly so. There were some incredibly touching scenes involving Magnus, who I felt like we got to know a lot better in this book. I loved the romances of some the side characters combined with the dry sense of humor that has defined this series. I laughed out loud just as many times as I reached for the tissue.

There will be some that won't be happy with the ending. The epilogue, which Clare already revealed pre-publication begins in 2008, seems to take place after the events of City of Heavenly Fire are resolved. I found that interesting since, of course, that book won't be released until 2014. The way the two series puzzle piece together is fascinating and it's almost as if we got an ending to both series, but without really knowing what happens. It was very cleverly done.

Oh, by the Angel . . .

Any of you who know me, know I've been both overly excited for this book but dreading it at the same time. We all knew something terrible was going to happen, right? But were unsure of many factors in to it. This book just. . .I had trouble getting in to it not because it was bad, oh no, because it was breaking my precious, delicate heart over and over again and I just couldn't bare it anymore. But then I knew I had to keep reading because I had to know the fate of my beloved Jem but also every single occupant of the London Institute. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with each of these individuals either throughout the series or in this book, alone. For being a complete and utter Jem fan, I still love and have much respect for Will Herondale. Unlike other love triangles, he is not one I would wish the worst upon, when in actuality, I did love him (just not as much as Jem).

When you think of series, you wish it to be epic and beautiful and perfect but how many times can you say that truly happens? I don't recall many where I'm left with my heart racing yet satisfied; however overwhelmed with emotions I may be. That happens with Clockwork Princess. I never thought I'd say I was happy with the outcome of this series because I thought for sure I'd walking around for days depressed over fictional characters who have become so important to me, they felt real.

The hardest part about this is not spoiling the book for anyone. That's the hardest thing about reviewing a final book in a series; what do you say that won't give away anything that happens? It's hard but I'm going to try my hardest to succeed.

Cassandra Clare has done it again. Clockwork Prince was absolutely stunning. It is far superior to the other books in the trilogy in almost every respect. I'd even say it's my favorite Cassandra Clare book so far.

Be warned, the family tree shows how the love triangle will be resolved. So if you don't want to know until the end, DON'T LOOK AT THE FAMILY TREE!!

As Tessa prepares for her wedding to Jem, darkness is closing in on the Shadowhunters of London. With the coming of demons linked to the Magister, his plans for the automaton army are almost complete. But he needs one last thing--Tessa. Tessa knows that the Magister is after her, but doesn't know how, when, or what can be done to stop him. Charlotte is set on finding the Magister first, and Jem and Will would do anything to keep Tessa safe.

When the Magister has all the drugs that Jem has to have to survive, Will feels it's his responsibility to get more drugs for Jem and to save Tessa from the danger coming after her. But Tessa learns her true origin and that she is capable of saving herself. The character progression of Tessa was phenomenal. I really enjoyed seeing the end of her character arc. She's such a relatable character. Even though I sometimes didn't agree with her choices, I always knew why she did what she did.

The characters in the Infernal Devices trilogy are some of my favorite as far as character development goes. Clockwork Princess continued the character progression and showed an even deeper side of the characters that we didn't get the chance to see before. Clare has a gift with writing strong characters that you connect with. No matter how minor, you feel like you personally know every character mentioned.
