Whether you are "Team Will" or "Team Jem" I think you could agree that the author should have picked ONE of them for Tessa to end up with. Either have her marry Jem and Will gets screwed over because he thought he was cursed otherwise she likely would have been him since it seems she was more drawn to him from the start, in which case Will to honor Jem will likely never be with her. Consequently have Jem die or become a silent brother and give them his blessing so that she can be with Will. I think it is a total cop out for Jem to become a silent brother so that she can't be with him, but he will suspend aging so that she can be with Will and then after Will dies a cure is magically found for Jem and he stops being a silent brother so that Tessa can be with him. She should have ended up with one or the other, it was lame in my opinion for things to work out the way that they did. Anyhow the fact that the author appeared to be trying to just make everyone happy and didn't make Tessa choose is my only real complaint concerning the book otherwise I really liked it and found it difficult to set down most of the time.
Also just to address something from another review I also found the thing with the worm to be funny, but I didn't think the fact that it was funny not scary took away from the book I thought it was hilarious and enjoyed it on that basis. I guess it just depends upon what you are looking for.
Oh my, this series is amazing! It has made me laugh, cry, scream, and everything in between. It's SO good! The story is very good. And I really enjoyed reading it. The characters are well-developed. The plot is phenomenal. And the book is the perfect mix of hilarious, action, romance, and heartbreaking. Especially the last book, Clockwork Princess. Warning, these books will make you cry. I know they made me sob. I was so sad that it ended, but it was very bittersweet. The books take place in Victorian era London, which makes it all the more enjoyable. The backdrop is different from that of my usual books, which is cool.
The main character is Tessa Grey. Tessa is smart, funny, and loves to read. As a book-a-holic, I can totally appreciate that. She's strong in a special way. And although she doesn't know it at first, she's very special. In the first book, Clockwork Angel, she comes to London from America. Her older brother Nathaniel came to London in search of work and just sent her a letter saying he had found it and she could join him. But when she arrives, she's kidnapped by two women known as the Dark Sisters. She is told she has powers and is trained (AKA tortured) into learning how to use them. Then, along comes a shadowhunter (a race that is descended from the angel Raziel and hunts demons). His name is Will Herondale and he rescues Tessa from the Dark Sisters. Will is handsome, funny, and hates ducks (you find out why in the book). He is a true hero, even though he doesn't realize it. He may not be a knight in shining armor, but he is the one you want to show up, for he can crush the bad guys to smithereens. His best friend is Jem Carstairs. Jem is slowly dying from demon poison and has been for years. Jem and Will fight together and love each-other as brothers. Will brings Tessa back to the London Institute (a place where shadowhunters live), where she meets Jem, along with Charlotte, who runs the Institute, Charlotte's husband Henry, Jessamine, and the maid Sophie. She quickly becomes fast friends with all of them.
The series has an amazing plot with the perfect ending. I didn't like the ending (because it made me sob), but that's the sign of a good book and was what the story needed. Clare does a fabulous job weaving her story into a web with so many twists and tangles, everything seems to be connected. And there are no coincidences. Everything happens for a reason, some of which will not be revealed until the next book in The Mortal Instruments series (the one this is a prequel for) comes out.
Clockwork Princess picks up pretty much where Clockwork Prince leaves off. Tessa is engaged to Jem, Mortmain still out there building his army and the love triangle between Will, Tessa and Jem is still going strong. This is one of those love triangles where you actually like and care about both guys...even though I would and will always pick Will. My only problem with this love triangle is that I have a hard time believing that a person can fully and completely be deeply in love with two people at the same time. To me that just doesn't seem possible. I think that is where I have the biggest issue with this book.
My heart broke throughout this entire book. Even though there is a happy ending, it still feels like my heart was being ripped apart. This was a great ending to The Infernal Devices. I will miss Will, Jem, Tessa and the rest of the shadowhunters that made up the Infernal Devices series.
