Clockwork princess (Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare


Summary:

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy

Tessa Gray should be happy - aren't all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.

My review:

“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

There are no words to express how sad I am to see this series and it's characters go. I was always awed with Cssandra Clare's writing but Infernal devices stole my breath away from the very first page in Clockwork angel. I fell in love with the story, with the era, with London and the Shadohunter world  all over again but mostly I fell in love with people in this series. Tessa, Jem and Will will always have my heart but so will Gabriel and Gideon, Sophie and Cecily, Charlotte and Henry and of course, Magnus Bane because there is no good book abot the Shadowhunters and Downworlders without our favorite warlock.

“Sometimes one must choose whether to be kind or honorable," he said. "Sometimes one cannot be both.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess

       Clockwork princess finally answers all the questions we've been dying to ask. What really is Tessa? Who she ends up with? What will happen to Jem? Do Sophie and Gideon find their happy ending? And the biggest question of all, do they finally defeat the evil Mortmain?  I have to say that this book was utter perfection and I held my breath until the last page. Plenty of heartache, battles, betrayals and death, but also love, loyalty and friendship, Clockwork princess was the best book Cassie Clare ever wrote so far, with the most amazing ending possible and that includes the Epilogue. I know a lot of people think that the epilogue was unnecessary but to me it was the icing on the cake and i cried and smiled while reading it. So prepare a lot of tissues for reading this book, you will need them but in the end, every tear will be worth it. So I say goodbye to this series and it's characters and I hope I will see some of them again in City of heavenly fire.

“And now I need you to do for me what I cannot do for myself. For you to be my eyes when I do not have them. For you to be my hands when I cannot use my own. For you to be my heart when mine is done beating.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess
