Daniel Sharman is a great narrator! I could listen to his voice all day long.
One of a kind? I am addicted to the series.
He's Amaizing he made the experience more enjoyable.
Yes I did I wish it was longer.
Cant wait for the next one.
I love the way all the characters in the book were strong minded and truly noble with no pretenses most stories make the characters silly and act unrealistically to the point were you don't believe in the story or the people in it causing their personalities to get lost, these characters stayed true to who they were and never faltered.they all were truly good and you gotta love a story that can pull that off!
There were allot of things that Truly surprised me throughout this book whereas most books tend to become a bit predictable this one had me shocked so many times it was laughable you feel the characters pain strife and indecision along with them, plus the ended was just beautifully amazing! I dare say perfect.
I have not but I do enjoy he's accent and even for the regular character's I preferred he's interpretation over the others and of course no one pulled off Williams's better than him, nailed it!
Yes and no when enjoying a good book you want so badly to know what happens next but also there's the fact of knowing your close to it ending so at time's you try to draw it out a bit, it's the best kind of frustrating lol
I read the mortal instruments before this and that made me hesitant to read these in my opinion I feel like these two series were written by two different people while similar in some ways it's completely different and better for it, the characters didn't go off and do dangerous things with no regards to the adults in their life and I love that Tessa wasn't a weak female character like most are she made logical decisions that didn't make me annoyed even for her lack of knowledge about the world she was thrust into she did her homework, I usually get annoyed at the girls caught in the middle of love triangles but I believe she did what was right and still stayed true to herself.I love the way she handle Will! she was her own person and didn't act like life was ending over every short coming.
Yes! The story was amazing and the narrator was fantastic! I usually become upset when they switch narrators in a series- however they finally found a good one with this last book. Could you please have him re-read the first two installments?
The series is the prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. I enjoyed the entire series very much.
I have never heard Daniel Sharman preform before, but I will be seeking out the books he narrates! Nicely done.
The end was unexpected, that's all I can say without giving too much away! :)

yes, as it brought all of the characters to life, I felt like I was in england in the late 1700's.
others in this series, I am a new fan of steampunk, but think that this may have gotten me addicted to this genre.
great voice, and great accents made you feel like you were realy there
yes, and I could not stop, I did not get anything done as I was truely engrossed in this amazing series
listen to this series, I am still not ready to accept that it is over, I cried sobbed and weeped at parts of this story as well as laughed and yelled and cheered at my stereo as I listened, I loved every minute of this book
I was getting worried how she was going to the end the book. I loved her with both guys. Very creative. I always love a happy ending, where everyone wins.
When reviewing books I try to be fair; I appreciate that not everyone will be looking for the same things in a book.
Clockwork Princess is the third and final book in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices trilogy, following on from Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince. My view of the series was merely consolidated rather than changed by my reading of the finale – Cassandra Clare is excellent and writing characters and worldbuilding, not so great at pacing.
What I liked
The characters. I adore Tess, Will and Jem and I felt the way their story was developed in this final volume was very well written and very touching. I really felt for all the protagonists in the book. We also get to see the development of Will’s relationship with Jem from their initial meeting through flashbacks. I know some people disliked the epilogue, but personally I loved hearing about what happened to the characters after the ending of the story. I also loved all the secondary characters – Charlotte, Henry, Cecily, the Lightwoods. Writing characters and their interactions is clearly Clare’s real strong point. I enjoyed the fact that certain characters were not necessarily evil, believed they were doing the right thing, but were still major hurdles for our protagonists.
The narration. Yet again the trilogy switched narrator. All four narrators did a wonderful job, but I do much prefer it when the narrator is consistent across a series. Daniel Sharman took the reins for this final book and did an excellent job. One thing that did bug me, however; Will suddenly develops a Welsh accent! Admittedly, there is ample justification in the story given what we learn about Will’s background. I would have preferred it to have remained consistent with the neutral British accent he is given in the previous two books. It’s hard enough adjusting to a new narrator without a main character’s accent changing. It’s also interesting when the narration gives away a plot point. At one point, a character enters a place and says a few words. His identity is not revealed at that point in the book, but due to Sharman’s excellent voice work he was immediately identifiable to the listener.
The letters. The plot was developed through the use of letters. I thought this was a particularly efficient way of moving the plot forward without having to develop more secondary characters.
The action scenes. There are definitely a lot more action in this book before and during the confrontation with Mortmain. The London Institute Shadowhunters’ attacking Cadair Idris reminded me of Aragorn’s attacking the Black Gate in Return of the King or Lan’s defending the pass in Memory of Light. I would have LOVED to have seen Henry’s face when that first automaton came to life “oh… crap!”
What I didn’t like
There was nothing I specifically disliked about the book. It did enjoy it and was touched by Will, Tessa and Jem’s story. However, for me it didn’t quite pack the emotional punch of A Memory of Light or Emperor of Thorns. I suspect that was because I had been spoiled so certain fakeouts lost their impact when I knew they were going to be reversed later on.
All in all, I gave Clockwork Angel four stars out of five.
I enjoy reading but don't always have time so I listen using audible. I love the YA catagory tho I'm not a YA. Fav book, The Shack (no YA).
Loved the series, loved the writer, enjoyed the narritor. All characher voices represented well.This wraps up the 3 book trilogy very well. Also sheds some light onto The Mortal Instruments Magnus Bane.
Will, Jim and Tessa are such strong characters. Charolette, Henry are perfect together. I was not sure I would like this kind of book, but Cassandra Clare has won me over. The narrator, Daniel Sharman does a terrific job bringing the characters to life. I could not hardly put these books down.
Sure. It was good. It was hard to keep track of who was talking sometimes since it was a guy. He had amazing accents though.
I don't know. It kinda runs together in my mind.
Sorta. I wish he read faster.
Daniel Sharman really made me feel the characters and I really liked the love triangle that was not a betrayal. It also gave me a little bit of where the Shadow Hunters came from in the Mortal Instruments series.
I don't think there is another book to compare it to.
Daniel Sharman really made me feel the emotions of the characters and connect with them.
I wish Daniel Sharman would've narrated the other books in the series. He is awesome!
