I absolutely adored Clockwork Prince. It has earned a spot on my Favorites shelf and is probably my favorite of all the books Cassandra Clare has written. That’s saying something since it’s the middle book in a trilogy!

This story had it all–-suspense, intrigue, humor, love, happiness, and anguish. There were times when I was giddy while reading this story and other times when I wanted to sob because of the heartache I was feeling. And, I have been left on the edge of my seat wondering what’s going to happen next, wondering if things will be resolved the way I want them to be, wondering if I even know how I want things to be resolved.

It’s funny. I must be getting over my extreme dislike for love triangles because I couldn’t bring myself to hate Will or Jem. I like them both and either one could be good for Tessa. Honestly, I just don’t want either of them to be heartbroken or for this situation to ruin what they have as friends and parabatai.

Cassandra Clare
“We live and breathe words. .... It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt--I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted--and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince
