After reading this book. . . . .
I never thought Cassandra Clare is capable of doing something so emotional in the midst of the Shadowhunting world.
Clockwork prince is the second book to the Infernal Devices trilogy I came to love. If you liked the first one, there'll be no frustration in the second book. There are enough surprises, revelations, and betrayals. The ever beautiful Victorian London is perfectly described, and the story brilliantly paced and told. I found their conversation quite wonderful it was like going back in time but still enjoying the company of some interesting people from the past.
In here, you'll see the depths of Will's mysterious personality. Why he has to be so despicable and why he has to push Tessa away. I sincerely felt bad for him, he endured everything all by himself. And just thinking of how everything turned out makes me so disappointed. If only he had known it earlier, things would have turned out different for him, for his family, and for Tessa. But it's too late now, it's why I pity his predicament.
But not Jem, he's one lucky shadowhunter I wanted to make him feel how his parabatai's feeling. I'm not exactly mad at him. I just realized,after reading this,how badly I wanted Tessa and Will to be together. I can't blame Jem either because he's too good, and he's dying. I cannot bear to see him hurt. Man! Could everything gets even more confusing!
So I'm just hoping against all hope that Tessa makes the right decision in the end. I'm feeling that it'll still be Will even though their future together seems far-fetched. I can't wait for the last installment! Can't bloody wait!
Dear book 3,
PLEASE let Will and Tessa be together!
Can't you see how miserable he is without Tessa?...
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars!
