Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close.

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it?

The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose.

Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.

Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy

My Thoughts:  

This review is going to be short and sweet because I know I could never give CLOCKWORK PRINCESS it's due justice. I have been a long time fan of Cassandra Clare and am always astounded at how she can completely stun me, take the rug from underneath my feet and leave me emotionally spent. And you know what? I would eagerly come back for more.

As I cracked open my book and settled in for the night my chest constricted knowing I would soon have to say goodbye to these beloved characters and fascinating world that had become a favored reading series.  I was immediately consumed by it's storyline and before I reached the last word I had experience a myriad of emotions, many of which had my ugly crying into mounds of tissues.

So, here I am post afterglow and all I can say that Cassandra outdid herself with CLOCKWORK PRINCESS. A most fitting ending to a phenomenal series and a perfect example at how a love triangle should be written. I adore this novel for all that it is worth and It is for this reason that I do not want to ruin it for anyone because I believe that this novel should be enjoyed and not spoiled. 

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS is a substantially sized novel, so turn off the phone, make a pot of tea and settle in for the night because you will not want to stop and I highly recommend a box of tissues because you will need it.

Well said my friend. My headache from a night of uncontrollable crying has passed, but not the bliss of such a wonderful read.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
