Summary: In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Timesbestselling Mortal Instruments series.
The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…
If I thought I liked the Mortal Instruments series I definitely like this a whole lot more!
I didn’t think I would continue with Cassandra Clare but I did and I’m so happy that I did! In all honestly you can really tell the growth Cassandra has as a writer from City of Bones to now! Having read two of her books in this series, I honestly feel this is her best writing yet and she continues to amaze me as the series continues on! I love them and her writing!
This book was action packed from the start it seems! I literally felt like I was hooked to this book because I could not stop listening to the audiobook and was dying to figure out what was going on next! I die! I just love this series so much!
This book overall was so interesting and unique, and I loved going back in time to England with Tessa and seeing her as a character develop in this book. She’s a very tough cookie and I loved seeing her get thrust into this world, and interact with the different characters that come in, and seeing her develop her own abilities. I adore her probably more than Clary! I do love Clary, but Tessa for some reason has my heart! Tessa definitely faced troubles and always seemed to come out a stronger person for all her hard times.
And before I started the Infernal Devices I talked with a friend who loves this series and we talked about which guy she thought I’d be all for and she said she felt with the way I am that I would go with Jem. She was right. I am all Team Jem…I enjoy Will and I see the perks of her character, but I feel like she’s better with Jem! I can’t help it! I love him so much and I just want them to be together! And Will is just too harsh for my liking, I mean I love him but at the same time I just feel he needs to calm down and not be such a jerk.
And don’t get me started on Jessamine because ughhhh she is a piece of work! I’m ready to write her off, but my friend told me to give her a chance and that I’ll see what she means later. I am just..ugh! She’s a shitty person! I don’t see how she deserves my sympathy!
But again overall this book was really good! I loved it so much! It was amazing and so full of action, and mysteries to solve, and I just was taken on such a great ride that I was sad it was over! I didn’t want this book to end and I am sad that I only have to read Clockwork Princess now since I finished Clockwork Prince already. I’m scared and so excited, and so nervous! I just need everyone to be okay! I love them too much!
But Cassandra’s character development for the characters was out of this world! And again her growth as a writer is just getting so much better each book of hers I read! I just can’t wait for her future works as an author. She is just out of this universe! Love her work!
So let me know down below your thoughts on this series and if you’ve read it! No spoilers please! Let me know what team you’re on! I’d love to know!
