Alexandra  (cherry_crush) | 30 comments Definitely favorite book series read in 2012-2013. If someone has read The Mortal Instruments before that like me you cannot not see the difference in the writing. Cassandra Clare really evolved as a writer and the books are a constant action-packed emotional rollercoaster, not every writer can manage to successfully combine those two.

You should read it, You'll fall in love instantly.
You'll fall in love with either Jem of Will in Clockwork-Angel.

Ayu (ianosheas) | 22 comments The Infernal Devices are much much MUCH better than The Mortal Instruments.

Currently reading Clockwork Princess.

I just finished Cp2 about a week ago! It's my favorite in the series. I couldn't have asked for a better ending! I personally prefer TID to TMI


message 12: by Tori (new)

Tori (probablytori) I simpy cannot believe the ending. I refuse to believe the epilogue was real, because it wasn't :(

Addie (justthisonetime) | 21 comments to those Will and Jem shippers, this may be sort of (but not really a spoiler) but all sides win. Really. Like both get the team they support. That and the first edition of the book has a special family tree connecting to almost all the characters of City of Bones. AND Jem and Tessa may or may not play a role in the new series "Dark Artifices" coming out 2015


message 14: by Emily (new)

Emily (emkathh) I thought that the thing with Mortmain ended a little too easy, though I loved everything else! And ohmigod that epilogue ;(

But in the TLH series that follows the next generation after Will and Gideon and all the others, we'll get to see more of (view spoiler) <33

Katelyn Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series is a million times better than the Mortal Instruments series in my opinion. I'm not saying I don't love the Mortal Instruments series, but if I had to make the choice between which to buy at the bookstore, Infernal Devices would win. Will Herondale is my favorite character of all time, and at times I think he's more complicated than Severus Snape from Harry Potter (but then I laugh a bit and think he's a super close second, because no one beats Snape out there). As of late, I've gotten more and more annoyed with the love triangles in books, but this was one where I could understand Tessa's indecision. Both Jem and Will are amazing, and if I were in her position, I would find choosing between them impossible.

I could not get over it for a good week after I read it. Even now when my friend brings up the series I can't talk about it. I loved the epilogue but I despised it at the same time. I just can't form an opinion on it.


message 17: by Bryony (new)

Bryony (bnylls) Although I've been meaning to read these books since Clockwork Angel was first published, I have only just started and I'm finding it hard to get stuck into...which is rather disappointing for me.

I agree with the first statement whole-heartedly. I loved The Mortal Instruments when I first read them a couple years ago. I just reread them after reading the Infernal Devices and didn't like them as much the second time around.

As much as many people didn't like the epilogue, I thought it was great.


Kristine Isabelle (shekissedthesky) I loved the epilogue. Usually, we'd expect that she would choose between Team Jem or Team Will. It's a different choice that were used to and that's what I loved about it.


message 20: by Bryony (new)

Bryony (bnylls) Okay, so I got well stuck into Clockwork Angel and...I LOVE IT. I am now halfway through Clockwork Prince. I have had the intention to read The Mortal Instruments ever since City of Bones was first published, but I've never got there, and after hearing that TID is much better, I am hesitant to read TMI, I must admit - of course I'm going to read them eventually, it's just a matter of when.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

I wanted to read "The Infernal Devices" because eventually I would like to get into "The Mortal Instruments," and I heard the trilogy was first. I loved all of them, but specifically "Clockwork Princess." I thought that the ending was so original! Great reads, all three of them.
