Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) Tessa Gray should be happy— aren't all brides happy? Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows. THE INFERNAL DEVICES. BOOK THREE A Reading Group Guide to CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by CASSANDRA CLARE. Page 2 of 4. About This Book. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare My poor heart has never felt this way after finishing a series; I had no idea it was possible to.
What a terrible thought!!!!! Hold on Why does it have a rating? It's not even out yet. How can you rate a book if you haven't even read it?
It doesn't even have a cover so you can't rate that either. Freakin weird I wonder what will happen. Why does it work that way!? Well, so sorry, but I have a soft spot for unwanted guys! I have nothing against Will but for once, I just want the good guy to win. But I'm pretty sure that Tessa doesn't love Jem as much as she loves Will. And just thinking about that makes me want to come up to her, scream and say: I think Will's love for Jem is greater than his love for Tessa.
I need to read a different book to temporarily forget my yearning for The Infernal Devices. Can't you just release this first before The Mortal Instruments??? I just read the synopsis for this book!
I think I lost a part of my heart! Jem can't die! He better NOT die! Gloomy Birthday for me. But also because I still don't have this book in my hands! Wait a minute Is that the cover??? Hey, where else can I vent out my frustration if the people around me are not into books? Get the fuck away from me you weirdo! So these rumors that I've been reading about the release of this book are already facts??? I'm about to get a heart attack any moment now I definitely need a rune of patience.
One anti-depressant rune would help too No wonder Will and Jem are going nuts! She's definitely prettier than Clary! Is it just me or can you also see that this cover is a bit different from the first two books? Will and Jem look like animation characters in their covers Where do I start?
But as forethought: Foreigner here! Help me out! I know reviews should be in present tense but rants and spoilers? Now writing at my own risk! You read at your own risk! D view spoiler [ I still remember what I felt when I realized that Jem is going to die.
The pain was sharp and unfathomable! He is more than a favorite. Did I cry? I think not probably because I was reading in front of my loved ones! The grief I felt was beyond tears. Honestly, I lost all my interest in finishing this book and the series itself. But then the Lenten Season came and with it, a day without work to be done. So in the end, I finished CP2… without feeling relieved! Should I be happy with the story?
I SO want to punch my computer monitor at this very moment! Oh by the Angel! How can you let yourself slowly die of unending pain just to see your blood brother be happy!? Can I ever find a guy like My Jem? Anyway, even though he had to suffer more than Will had to YES! He deserves it. He clearly ought to have more, and coming in second and getting scraps YES! But in the deepest part of my heart, I already knew that Will is going to win. What I am not happy about is the style of writing.
What happened to the hopeless romantic characters? What ever happened to the sweet lines delivered by romantic people in the Victorian Era? While reading, all I could picture was American characters in American soil living in the present time.
So hooked to this Shadowhunter thingy! Even CoLS is not good! I was expecting more from CP2. I was actually looking forward to the heartwarming lines between Jem and Tessa and Tessa and Will, but there was none. There was probably a few, but not as good as the lines in the first two books. Honestly, their more-than-brother-bond love for each other brought more tears to my eyes than the Will-Tessa-Jem love triangle. The Parabatai bond is really apparent in CP2. Readers are exposed to the ritual and what it really means to be bound under it.
When Will felt the Parabatai bond sever, I felt it as well. I felt everything Will and Jem went through without each other. And every time I think about the bond they shared and somehow, but not totally, lost, I feel like someone is tearing my heart. This Parabatai thingy is something that Cassandra Clare should be proud of, I think. Give yourself a tap on your shoulder Cassie!
D Okay… Before finally saying goodbye to this series I feel like weeping like a 5-year old! I want to know how and who found his cure. WHAT is the cure? The Jem-and-Tessa relationship is not interesting anymore.
We all know what would happen. I hope I would find out in The Dark Artifices. That I think is more interesting than the life of a normal Shadowhunter. View all 14 comments.
It is beyond you to control it. It has been beyond me to control it. The Angel watches over us, and we shall win out. The final battle begins Like a clock without cogs, Mortmain's master plan is missing its key component: Without her, he cannot use his army of automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He cannot exact his revenge. Secrets will unravel As Tessa's nuptials quickly approach, she clings to the moments of happiness she finds with Jem - refusing to dwell on his inevitable death, Will's broken heart and her own.
But their are bigger things at stake than hearts. The secrets behind Tessa's creation may hold all their lives in the balance. What is she and how did she come to be? Only Mortmain holds the answers. The Infernal Devices will rise But who will stop them?
By the Angel! I have been overwhelmed with a sea of emotions. I have nothing left - I have laughed, gasped, screeched, cried, sobbed, sobbed some more and then 'aww'd a little more after that. This is all too much. Cassie is a genius. When I retain my emotions - and am mentally stable once more - I will sit down and type up a scintillating review. Ok - I can see how the plot will roll out: Will's eyes are pretty' banter - The Magister's 'mwahahahahahahahahaha I'm gonna kill you all' monologues It'll be good.
And then, at the end, Will and Tess will feed the ducks in silence. D First pre-read review: View all 32 comments. Spectacular end to a fantastic series! View all 21 comments. Oh god. This was the most achingly beautiful and exquisitely painful thing I have ever read. But it had the perfect ending. Review to come if I can figure out what is up with my heart. Or I may not read another Cassandra Clare book again. Okay, that is a lie.
And I admit it. I will always read Ms.
Clare's books, no matter what. Has anyone noticed how Tessa and Will would be too similar to Clary and Jace? If Tessa's with Will, I might Oh god. If Tessa's with Will, I might have to assume Clare can't write about different romances.
I won't. Because it is clear that she can write about versatile romances. Okay refraining from bad language. I can't even- I'm happy. I'm sad. I'm happy. Okay, okay. No, I can't even begin to write about this book. I absolutely love Miss Clare. So much feelings. This book was amazing, just like the previous two books. And the last two chapters OMFG.
I love how the whole thing was connected. I was so happy she ended up with Will. And then Jem left but came back. Which I don't completeeeely understand. But I'm so happy Tessa gets both. Probably the only happy love triangle. Where everyone is happy. And I hope Tessa actually legit has a family reunion with Jace.
Or maybe she does in City of Lost Souls. I haven't finished that book yet. LOL, awkward. I'm satisfied with the ending. I want more, but I know it may be asking to much and you know how some series should just stop. I hope this is made into a movie as well, along with TMI which I am suuuper excited for! Sad that Pettyfer wasn't casted as Jace, so Mr. Bower, you better fulfill this role. I love Cassie Clare and her books. Anyone know if there's a full family tree somewhere?
Link me? Or something. Because I cannot resist temptation. I spoiled it for myself. Love TMI. Love TID. Love Cassie Clare. Love this book. Love love love. Okay, now I'm going to cry because TID is over. The period of waiting for the book No spoiler, just a lot of feelings. It's Anyone else excited?!
So close, wee! View all 27 comments. Not to be loved or not to be able to love.
Will Is there a chance for him to be happy? Jem Every heart has its own melody. In this book Tessa is about to get married with view spoiler [Jem hide spoiler ] but she is kidnapped by Mortmain. Jem is unable to go and find her due to the fact that he is out of yin fen his drug so his is very ill so Will searches for her. Tessa as Mortmain's captor learns many things about her life and what she really is.
Do you remember her necklace? As it seems this necklace is more important than we thought. The book is full of twist and that captures the readers interest.
Life is full of risks. Death is much simlper. That shocked me a lot! And the choice of good and ill before me set. Would I accept the pleasure with the pain or dare to wish that we had never met? Tessa has to to chose between the boys , but that isnt easy. Most people are lucky to have even one great love in their life. Fortunatelly , the author gave us the best solution. That was the saddest part of the book. It was expected to be this way but the words that the author was using made me a sobbing mess.
The infernal devices is over but these three people will stay with me forever. View all 62 comments. Well, I can honestly say that I did not see that epilogue coming.
Insert jaw drop here. Also, I feel like I need to immediately reread this to catch all the details I missed in my hurried frenzy the first go around? And could I possibly cry any more tears over this book? This is my most favorite Cassie Clare novel to date, and I finally see why you all hold it so close to your heart. Jul 12, Bangadybangz rated it really liked it. I've finally finished The Infernal Devices! Clockwork Princess was a solid finale to this series.
And yes, as everyone warned me they would, the feels did hit me at the end Also, I never really liked the idea of Tessa and Jem together. Therefore, I found it a bit annoying at times when the book just went on and on about how Tessa loves BOTH Jem and Will, and she will always love BOTH of them because they're each perfect and beautiful and they each love HER so much and they're one-and-the-same because parabatai and on and on and on.
It got a bit tiring. And finally, the end got me very excited to read the rest of TMI with all the little teasers there.
Or maybe they already have in the first three, and I've just forgotten Guess I'll have to go back and read them again XD More details in a future wrap-up video. It'll be more funnier than I intended it to be. Dear Cassandra Clare, I am begging you to please release this earlier. If the world will end this year, then I will not have the chance to read this amazing book, and I will die very, very sad. Not only I will die this way, but also many other fans will die very, very sad.
Now, you don't want your fans to be very, very sad, do you? You left Clockwork Prince with a very, VERY big cliffhanger that is making me tear my hair out, and I am known to have nice hair, so people are becoming very disappointed in me.
All of your fans are dying here. I really, really do. I love you so much. So, please, please come out earlier. I'll love you for eternity. Love, Me. By the angel, I just realized that if the world will indeed end in , I will never read this book.
I must. Cassandra, I know I haven't been a very good girl because I've been thinking about Will in ways I shouldn't lately and I've been really I will go throw something now, and I will be back. If I don't read someone saying that it will be released earlier, I will throw something else. And that's very dangerous. So I suggest you release it early so no one will get hurt. I finally finished! I cried forever when I finally realized it!

I also love the family tree on the inside of the dust jacket So cool to see how the characters from the Mortal Instruments are literally direct descendants from the characters in this trilogy D Okay, so it's only July 11th, and here are my current emotions towards this book: Oh man, the release date still feels so far away.
View all 15 comments. The setting was easily my favorite part of this book! All of the Welsh legends and language were really fun to see. The love triangle worked so much better for me here. And I love The setting was easily my favorite part of this book! Tessa was never the strongest character for me, but I liked her enough. But I still feel like the writing occasionally had a lot of… filler. The pacing really got bogged down with unnecessary stuff that didn't add anything.
And all of the actual storyline with the infernal devices felt like some weak background chatter. Luckily the relationships and friendships were strong enough to carry the whole book. Ok one more complaint: And P.
Like I get that the story has Shadowhunters not adhere to social customs of that time period as much, buuuut it was still an odd choice. It killed the other emotions and felt really out of character. It kind of felt like a cheap way out, BUT also made me happy at the same time. So whatever. This series is so much better than The Mortal Instruments, though! View all 9 comments.
Aug 18, C. Drews added it Shelves: I didn't love Clockwork Princess as much as I wanted to but, zomg, I still love the Shadowhunter world an astronomical amount. But all in all? The conclusion to this trilogy was a liiiiittle anti-climatic for me. Because I'm kind like that. I ain't convinced, folks.
How can Tessa possibly love two guys equally?? But then Will loved Jem and awful lot, so I don't know why the three of them just didn't marry and call it a day. I didn't like the romance at all. I thought Jem pressured Tessa into marrying him and guilted her into loving him more.
And I think Will was a selfish piece of burnt popcorn. She was as intersting as a blob. She constantly needed to be rescued. She was always fainting and flopping all over the place. I don't hate her! I don't! But seriously, Sophie and Charlotte and even Cecily who is Will's sister and pops into this book were all x more interesting than Tessa.
I just particularly hated that Tessa was a damsel. I love Magnus. I'm joking There is a whole chunk of the book that's just about Will riding cross country and I nearly fell asleep, except if I did that and dropped the ginormous book on my face, I'd probably have gotten a concussion. There was so much fluffy around and not nearly enough action and I was bored a lot of the time.
I have no idea which one was which. I do like that they're much more complex characters now I just He was more pathetic and not even in an endearing way.
Die Mortaiman, and be quick and quite about it because no one cares. And I'm excited that this is my 11th Cassandra Clare novel too. Charlotte is still fighting for her power and things, but she's so awesome and still kind, but firm, and she's having a baby!! And I love how the book continually empowers her though the world puts her down. Why was this book not about Charlotte??? Though I hate all their rules and stupidity and when ever a guy is running things, everything is DUMB.
I love their runes and powers and family-ties and fjasdkla it's just amazing. I love this world. I would read billion books in it, and lucky me, Cassandra Clare is currently obliging. So I'm pleased. I snortled out loud a few times too. Will isn't as funny as he used to be, buuuut But there are still some great quips, particularly the Lightworm jests.
I am not a happy bean because of the ending. I'm not. I think view spoiler [that it was kind of weird and unfair. Like the whole thing of Tessa and Will finding out Jem's "dead" so they have sex???
I mean, putting aside the ERA which having sex-before-marriage would be absolutely not okay it just seemed so I couldn't ship them, because it honestly felt like it was a "oh good, we love him, but now we're free of him" feeling.
So sad. And even though I think Jem was a selfish donkey, I'm still sad for him. I never shipped Tessa and Will. I WANT. I still love this series and all of Cassandra Clare's books. I'm let down, I am. I didn't enjoy this book a lot and found myself skimming some of the boring travel scenes.
Thank goodness Henry invented the Portal. And I will read anything she writes but yes While i was originally intending to give this 4 stars, the epilogue changed everything. Literally no one touch my right now or I'll break apart. I swear i have no soul but as i was reading that epilogue the pages started to blur and i felt something moist rolling down my cheeks and i realized i'm capable of crying. I can actually produce tears.
Clockwork Princess was without a doubt, the best in the series. My emotions varied while reading it. I felt frustartion, anger, devastation, and joy.
It was all so overwhelming, at points the story would get so morbid and i would be like you need to chill you're hinting at things i'm not emotionally prepared for. Girl i was bawling like a baby in need of affection.
There were other times when i was just frustrated that i threw the book in the time out corner. Seriously these characters can get very frustrating. But some characters got what they did. Fam you sound like you're talking to your pet chihuhua. Chihuhuas aren't cute what r u doing like are you a stop sign because STOP. Obviously i had no chill when it came to putting some of these characters in their place.
If only they could actually hear me. Too bad they're fictional. Boy wait until i get my hands on it. I'm going to be all over the place screaming like a dying alpacha. S this was probably one of the most satisfying conclusion to a trilogy I've ever read. Joel approves. View all 6 comments.

This is a preview of a remote PDF: The Magister plans to animate the automatons using a binding spell to infuse them with demonic energy. Mortmain is surprised by the physical appearance of the Shadowhunters, because he says the Nephilim in the Bible were hideous monsters.
He tells them he is a long-time student of the occult. She lives almost all her life in books, dreaming of having the kind of adventures the heroines she reads about do—until she is forced to travel from New York to London when her Aunt dies, to her brother.
She is left in the hands of only a pair of mysterious—and sinister—women called the Dark Sisters, who seem to have been 'hired' by him. The Shadowhunters of the London Institute may be Tessa's only hope of finding Nate, but their mysterious world of demons and and her newfound talent holds many dangers for her—especially when she realizes she might be more a part of it than she'd thought. Tessa is a shape-shifter, which means, if you give her any item, then she can transform into that person which is very painful for Tessa , and the person could also speak through her.
She finds herself trapped within the queer world of the Nephilim, with no family, no knowledge of where she really comes from, and no idea of what to do. She soon befriends the Shadowhunters, and is stuck within a love triangle with two remarkable young lads: William Herondale and James Carstairs.
Even through all the self-harm, the discovery of things that no one would like to know, and her conflictive love between the two boys, she remains strong and true to herself. Will refused being raised to believe that Shadowhunters were not good people and that the lives they led were dangerous and monstrous.
Will was going over his father's old things when he found the Pyxis that held the Greater Demon Marbas and opened it, unwittingly unleashing the demon. The demon then went on to attack him, and Will was protected by his older sister, Ella, who was subsequently poisoned by the demon.
Will joined the Shadowhunters after this incident at age 12 to say why would be a spoiler. Will hates everyone and everything, with the possible exception of Jem, and even that's in some doubt. Charlotte despairs of keeping him alive past the age of nineteen. When he finds himself oddly drawn to Tessa, his friends begin to hope that the Downworlder girl will prove Will's unlikely salvation—but as Tessa grows closer to the bleak secret that makes his life a prison, danger threatens to destroy them both if she ever finds out the truth.
He was raised at the Shanghai Institute, run by his parents. He lived there until he was twelve, when the Greater Demon Yanluo , in retaliation for the destruction of his nest, killed his parents and tortured him by poisoning him with yin fen.
Jem was in and out of consciousness and had become delirious, and by the time the Shanghai Enclave came to investigate, his parents were dead and he was already addicted to the drug. Jem was rescued, though his dependence on the drug could not be cured. While Jem needed the drug for continued survival, regular doses of it was also deadly, so it became known since then that Jem would not live long. When Will, in an attempt to dissuade Jem from befriending him, teased him about looking weak and close to death, Jem told him about his short lifeline.
