“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.” -Cassandra Clare
This week's book review is another installment of The Infernal Devices series! I just can't get enough of 'em. Again, Clockwork Prince was written by Cassandra Clare and was published on December 6th, 2011. It is the sequel to Clockwork Angel (click here to see my review of it). It's received 5 awards as of now, such as Winner of the Children’s Book Council Teen Book of the Year 2012. Here's what others think:
“A cliff-hanger ending will leave readers panting for the next installment.” -Booklist
“A purple page turner.” -Kirkus Reviews
“[W]ill not disappoint fans.” -SLJ
“[A]n almost Shakespearean rollercoaster ride.” -VOYA

His secrets are slipping out, and the truth is finally revealed, providing a reason for why he acts the way he does. Again, Tessa must make horrifically difficult choices.
In their chase after Mortmain, it is realized that even the purest heart can be corrupted with love and lies, for there may as well be a traitor in their midst...
