“In magical Victorian London, orphan Tessa found safety with the Shadowhunters, until traitors betray her to the Magister. He wants to marry her, but so do self-destructive Will and fiercely devoted Jem. Mage Magnus Bane returns to help them. Secrets to her parentage lie with the mist-shrouded Yorkshire Institute’s aged manager Alyosius Starkweather.”
I am so glad I decided to continue on with this trilogy because the story just got 10x better! I didn’t really enjoy reading the first book, Clockwork Angel, because I thought it was dull and boring. I’m so glad I decided to pick up Clockwork Prince though because the story is so fast paced on this one! I found myself constantly flipping the page, and it was so hard to put the book down. After reading this book, I now know why there is hype around this trilogy. The characters felt so real and I love how I got to know them a lot more in this book. Will is so funny and Jem has such a kind heart! I love how it is so easy to differentiate the characters because of their realistic personalities.
What I loved the most about Clockwork Prince is the romance. I think this is the only book where I love the love triangle. I usually don’t like love triangles, but this book pulls it off. Overall, if you did not really like Clockwork Angel, I suggest you still pick this book up because it is way better. There are so many plot twists and the romance is just *swoons*. If there were stuff you were confused about in Clockwork Angel, this book definitely explains them.
