Clockwork Prince

Clockwork Prince
by Clare, Cassandra

In the eagerly awaited sequel to Clockwork Angel, Charlotte's leadership of the Institute is challenged by a rival Nephilim faction. With only two weeks to locate the sworn enemy of all Shadowhunters the Magister Will, Jem, and Tessa follow clues that lead to shocking discoveries, betrayal, and terrible danger. Tessa continues to agonize over who or what she is, even as her brother Nate reveals who she is not. Clare's intricate plotting propels the pace, as does the ongoing tension of Tessa's conflicted attraction to both Jem and Will. Steampunk purists will find only a modicum of clockwork gadgets, but fear not there's plenty of steam. Tessa's virginity is twice saved by timely (or untimely) interruptions, raising the stakes in the Team Will or Team Jem debate. Fans of the series will revel in another compulsively readable concoction ladled with dollops of Victorian atmosphere, romance, and gorgeous characters, while humorous dialogue rescues the prose from melodrama. Clare once again raises more questions than she answers, but a cliff-hanger ending will leave readers panting for the next installment in the Infernal Devices series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Clare's already long arms will reach everywhere with this book: tours, advertising, social network outreach, interactive websites, and more.
