What a great way to end an amazing trilogy, clockwork princess was beautiful,devasating and tragic. one minute i would be laughing ,then be angry then sad and the next minute going no! don't do it! cassie why are you doing this to us. it had such a beautiful ending and i loved how it was linked up to her other series the mortal instruments. overall it is one of my favourite trilogies and i give it a 5 out of 5.

I loved this series, it's absolutely brilliant and well written. I liked it how at the end, Tessa was able to be with both her loves but I didn't like the idea how everyone died. The ending was very unexpected because I thought Jem would have died and I was deeply grieved by it but Cassandra Clare put a twist to it.  He became a silent brother and then he found a cure of the yin fen a century and a half later and then became a ShadowHunter. I liked that part of the ending but not how Will dies. That made me sad. This book was kind of like a fairytale, with the villain Mortmain, the Princess  being Tessa and the Prince being Will who saved her from Cadair Idris.

overall a  page-turner. I was on the edge of my seat when I read this. I absolutely loved it and I couldn't wait to read the sequel!

this book series i think outshines the Mortal Instruments series. dont get me wrong i love The City of Bones and clary and Jace's love story but The Infernal Devices gripped me from start to finish.

Clockwork Princess is the 3rd and final instalment of the Infernal Devices trillogy.

Opening up just after the Clockwork Prince,Jem and Tessa are now enganged with Jem's parabiti Will, still in love with Tessa. With time running out and Mortiman's clockwork army comming after shadow hunters on the tail of the london shadow hunters will tessa finally get her happy ending and find out what she is or will mortiman win?

This book will make you laugh and cry and thats just in the first chapter. 

if you enjoyed the first two books and want to find out what happens to Jem, Will and Tessa, pick up a copy of the Clockwork Princess now. you wont be disapointed

I liked the ending. 

I liked and didn't like the epilogue. It made me sad because Cassandra Clare's writing made me feel like the worst thing to be is immortal and watch everyone you love die. But the part about Jem was nice. 

Endings in series are always hard because everyone wants different things but I liked it. 

Also, I loved the smaller romances with Gideon and Sophie and Gabriel and Cecily. 

I liked the family tree but everyone kind of married each other. The whole Lightwood, Herondal and Carstairs family is interconnected. Which is a bit strange. 

Overall, great book.

Team Jem? Team Will?

Doesn't matter, everybody wins!


I was worried that, as with most trilogies, I would love the first book, be ok with the second book and attempt to burn the third book with how much it hurt my eyes. (An example would be the Hunger Games, the first one of which I worship still) However, Clare compeltely surprised me with her newest creation, and Clockwork princess is now definetely my favorite of the three books.

The finale of the Clockwork Series by Cassandra Clare was a heart-pounding, emotional, atomic bomb of delicious drama. Before opening the book I had my doubts about how she was planning to pull together all her many threads and end the story neatly, yet Clare managed to pull it off perfectly, creating the perfect end to the perfect trilogy.  While it was a tad cliche for everyone to find a happy ending (Gideon and Sophia, Gabriel and Cecily ect), I loved the unique and individual romances between each one of the couples, and had a great time laughing over Gideon and his scone problems. 

The whirlwind Bridget took on a whole new purpose in this novel, literally becoming a hilarious killing machine that sung depressing songs as she cooked. I like to think maybe I have something in common with her a tad. 

Cassandra Clare has really reached to new hights with this novel, making it a suberp way to finish off the trilogy. I was captivated all the way to the last page of the epilogue. It is definietely a great read, especially if you are someone who loves a book full of feels and heart-throb moments.


This book has my five star rating!
