This one is kind of a no-brainer, but when I went looking for upcoming releases to spotlight, it jumped out at me.
CLOCKWORK PRINCE!!! Yay!
It comes out December 6, and I cannot wait.
Here's the description:
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last
found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting
when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte,
replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position,
Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious
Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely
devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the
Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy
that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio
journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds
untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom
where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister
than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a
warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their
every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for
Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something
is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling.
Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa
the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the
friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they
can corrupt even the purest heart.
I have ADORED every one of Cassandra Clare's books, and I cannot wait to read more about Tessa, Will, and Jem. Plus, check out Cassie's website for information about MULTIPLE special extras in different exclusive editions of the book. (B&N, Book Depository, and Walmart all have different exclusives! Wow!)
So, are you excited for Clockwork Prince? Which do you like better: The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices?
P.S. If you haven't read any Cassie Clare (OMG what's wrong with you?!), go out RIGHT NOW and start with City of Bones. You can thank me later.
