Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices Trilogy #3)

Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare

Hi guys! I hope you are all having a great day and this is my review to Clockwork Princess written by Cassandra Clare and the third and final installment in The Infernal Devices Trilogy.


Danger and betrayal, love and loss, secrets and enchantment are woven together in the breathtaking finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.


A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy. 


Okay, so if I’m not writing or on Booklikes for a couple of days, come visit me in my corner.

That was one bold ending. I never realized how attached I got to the characters and the world of The Infernal Devices until I realized I’d reached the last page of the last book. Needless to say, I don’t think that any book in this trilogy has disappointed me or left any expectation I had unfulfilled.


The characters are once again, so well-developed that I know them better than real people. I may not know a whole lot about that girl in one of my classes, even if we’ve been talking in a lot of them—but I do know Tessa Gray. Cassandra Clare has written her characters with such . . . reality that it’s hard to accept the fact that they’re not real. Even for secondary characters, this is often an issue in some books. But in this series, I know the secondary characters just as much as I know the main characters.


The sub-plots and the main plot are both well paced. I never felt as if any of the plots were dragging, and I never thought that Clare added or stretched any new plots. All I was thinking about was how each plot would reach its own “happily ever after” in the end. And needless to say, they were all more than satisfying. I never felt as if the secondary characters weren’t talked about enough, because they all were.


This book is one of my favorites, so is this series. I cannot believe that I doubted Cassandra Clare after reading just one book by her. If people tell me a book is good, never again will I stop myself by seeing the name of the author. I think I was wrong on that part and am very happy to be proven wrong in that area. So . . . I’m sorry for doubting the rest of your books Cassandra Clare and I hope that your sequel series to The Infernal Devices will be great!


Now . . . DISCUSSION. But that’s all spoilers.


I started tearing up when I read the ending of this book! I can’t believe that Will dies! But in a way it’s a fair ending, Tessa ends with Will and Jem. But it was still so sad! I almost started crying at the part where Will smiles at Tessa while Jem plays his violin and dies!


And Tessa’s kids! And the way everyone visited him and started joking about what he said at Gabriel and Cecily’s wedding! I almost cried!


And at the part where you realize that all those years Jem and Tessa were meeting each other at the bridge that they first realized they loved each other in! I almost cried, I seriously almost cried.



(show spoiler)


Overall this book was one of the best I’ve ever read. Ever.


This series is recommended to everyone. Like, everyone. Seriously, GO AND READ THIS. YOU NEED TO GO AND READ THIS AND UNDERSTAND MY FEELS. This series honestly has great worldbuilding, great characters, great backstory and everyone knows how much I hate love triangles but this one was just so good. SO GO AND READ THIS.


Thanks so much for reading, and until the next review! :D
