Review+Discussion: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Author: Cassandra Clare

Publisher: Walker Books (September 5th 2013)

Genre: YA Fantasy

Pages: 576


PS: Do NOT read this if you haven't at least read the two first books in the series
As Tessa prepares to her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London InstituteMortmain needs one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.

“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.” 

This series will always hold a special place in my heart.
This last installment in The Infernal Devices trilogy was heartbreaking, and yet I adored it. I felt joy, happiness, heartbreak and sadness while reading this book, and I loved every pages -every word- of it. I found myself seeking time to read it, to jump again to this amazing world. I found myself devouring the last 200 pages of this book. Cassandra Clare knew how to build this world. She knew how to write endings too.
That ending was everything except what I expected. It was sad, and yet loved it, and I cried after reading the epilogue. Cried so much. And I loved it. 
The characters were as amazing as in the first two books. I feel like every character, Tessa, Jem, Will, Sophie, Cecily, and all the others, go through a lot of development in Clockwork Princess especially. 
Tessa is such an amazing character. She's a determined fighter, and an amazing friend. Jem is so soft and sweet, and yet when you give him a blade he turns into a fighter. And...Will *sigh*. He became the love of my life. He's funny, sarcastic, he sacrifices everything for the people he loves. AND he loves books. I fall in love every time he says a quote from a book (even though I didn't read most of those books). And he knows what quote to say in every situation.

“I am catastrophically in love with you.”

I have no words to express how much I love this book. I never read 200 pages of a book in English, until I started this trilogy. This wonderful trilogy.
The author knows how to wake all the feels in your heart in such a wonderful way. The plot keeps going fluently, but it's like the author stabs you artistically in the heart. And you get feels. Those amazing feels in books. 

“You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.”

See all those quotes? See this amazing writing style? It's perfect.

" I love all of them. Every word you say. The silly ones, the mad ones, the beautiful ones, and the ones that are only for me. I love them, and I love you.” 

All that is left to say is: read this trilogy if you haven't. It will shatter your heart, but you'll love it. These books will introduce you to a whole new and wonderful world, filled with magical words that make you feel like you're living the story, no, that make you live the story.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think of it?
