TBR Tuesday: Clockwork Prince

This one is kind of a no-brainer, but when I went looking for upcoming releases to spotlight, it jumped out at me.


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.


  1. LOVED the Mortal Instruments series - haven't tried her newer books yet. After reading this, I may add a stop at the bookstore to my to-do list - how could that ever be a bad thing?

  2. I'm mad at myself for reading City of Fallen Angels, since I was able to read the first trilogy in one go. Now I have to wait a WHOLE YEAR to read the next book. I should have known better, but I couldn't stop myself!

  3. KatieO--They are great, too! Yay for more books to read!

    JEM--I feel the same way. Although I do like to go back and reread a favorite series right before a new book comes out. :)


Breaths that matter...
