    In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street - and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends. The special Collector’s First Edition will include a never-before-seen letter from Will to his family!

    Story

    I can't believe a year ago I was extremely reluctant to start this series! I didn't think TID could ever reach the excitement of TMI, and I simply didn't want to like the characters. Despite willing myself not to like it then, I am completely in love with it now. TID has proved to be better than TMI if that's even possible. Faced-paced. Exciting. Gripping. Suspenseful. Addictive. Heart-shattering. Beautiful. You are most likely to find yourself helplessly lost in the mysterious world Cassandra has created.

    The romance in this book is unlike any other YA romance I've ever read. I simply cannot dismiss it as just another piece of silly and ridiculous YA literature, because it is anything but. Cassie has such beautiful and captivating writings that The Clockwork Prince brought out all the feelings and emotions I never thought existed in me. To be honest, I 'm not a sentimental person, not much can make me cry, but by the end of this book, my cheeks are wet with hot tears.

    All the charming and lovable characters. I'm sure they are the main reason why this series is so irresistible. Jem. No one in their right mind could possibly dislike him. Tessa. Everyone has to admit she's much more likable than Clary. She's braver, stronger and not afraid to pursuit what she wants. And finally, the legendary, self-destructive William Herondale. People have very mixed feelings for him. Some thought he was too cold and too horrible. Some thought he was just a blue-eyed, dark-haired version of Jace Wayland, but let me assure you that it is not true. As much as I love Jace, Will is completely unique and distinctive in his own way. I admit I used to have my doubts about Will, but now that I know more about him, I think he is the most wonderful character ever created by Cassandra. Such a passionate, good and selfless hero. We have all misjudged him.

    If you've already read The Clockwork Angel, as I'm sure you have, then you'll need no convincing buying The Clockwork Prince. But I have to warn you, the narration was in no way outstanding. Heather Lind sounded much older than how Tessa should sound, but other than that, she was okay. Ed Westwick however, was horrible times a million. Seriously! Hadn't he done enough damage in City of Fallen Angels already? Simon & Schuster, please! Find someone else to do the narration next time! It doesn't have to be someone from the Gossip Girls. It could be someone from the Pizza Hut as long as he doesn't sound like he's drowning, choking down slugs, falling asleep or all three at the same time.
