Some books when they end leave you happy and fulfilled. This book left me aching and hollow, for I want more. I feel as if nothing could possibly move me like this story of love and adventure. I want to live in these pages forever.
I enjoyed the entire trilogy but by far Clockwork Princess was the best. The narration was good but I prefer the dual narration of Clockwork Prince, so only gave 4 stars for narration. It's almost unfair to go from two to one narrator because two have so many more voices and characters get "drawn" better. Like hearing Bridget sing in book two. No hearing that in three was too stark a change for me. But that's a little thing. It does not destroy the beauty of the story.
I am left exhausted, ravaged, thrilled and pained by the ending of this trilogy, wondering if I can ever love this way again.
Cassandra Clare is one of those rare authors who knows how to end a book well and with the gift of satisfaction. I will truly miss each and every one of these characters.
Absolutely loved this series. I could not stop reading from beginning to end! I would recommend this series to adults and teens. A captivating story.
The conclusion of the infernal devices connects later events in the mortal instruments to events of the past and wraps it all up in a beautify literary package.
Two great love in one lifetime. How can one be so lucky. Amazing story, Could not put the book down, gave myself a migraine because I read through the night. Now that it is over, I want to read it again.
I was utterly surprised to find that a book that I chose and enjoyed tugged at every heart string I have.
I'm not much of a romantic. I don't read romances and generally groan when a book I'm reading (or hearing) starts to turn that direction.
This book that I chose because of the fantasy, intrigue, and action had such beautifully woven character development that I barely saw it coming and when it did I didn't groan a bit.
This is also a testament to how well the characters were developed in books one and two. In this third and final book the character threads were pulled taught and they wove together beautifully to deliver an emotional and fitting ending to a great series.
