    Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have. I enjoyed this series more than I am enjoying The Immortal Devices series- but I am biased as I love historical fiction. This book in particular, was a pleasure because it did not disappoint as a compelling finale to the trilogy....an unusual find.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Clockwork Princess?

    The epilogue. I can't stop thinking about it even today. I'm note sure everyone will feel the same way I did-Spoiler AlertI was annoyed, 1st off because Tessa is demon enough to live forever, but shadow hunter enough to have children- yet, she never adequately explained that. But mostly I was surprised that she chose to allow a bittersweet ending where the heroine...sort of has her cake and eats it too? I mean, how often does a gal get to have both men she loves? At first I couldn't decide if I was completely touched at the possibility of sharing two lifetimes of love...or angry at the possible betrayal it should have been. But then I realized that both men were constantly painted as being selfless toward each other and both would have gained comfort in knowing the other was happy. So, In truth it was the best outcome to any love triangle where you root for each member. But every once in a while I think...well crap...It'll just be the boys anyway in the "afterlife" often mentioned- so, I think they get the better end of the deal. Sucks to love a half demon that lives forever, eh? Or...will Tessa be shadow hunter enough to join them? That would be awkward.


    What does Daniel Sharman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the narrator in this story. Particularly because his accents were so good- Welsh, English, American- all excellent. Great voice too. Loved him. And that's saying a lot- usually I prefer female narrators because male narrators usually botch up female voices. Daniel did a decent job- would definitely look forward to any books he narrates in future.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Will suffers the loss of his parabatai, and the appearance and farewell of Brother Zachariah.

    Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Narrator is not the best, but I got used to her during this (the 2nd) book. The story line is slower, but decent. And at the end I still wanted to know more- so will be moving on to book 3.


    Would you recommend Outpost to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure- easy, short, entertaining read.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Bauer?

    Myself :p Just kidding. Emily Bauer is a professional, unlike myself...I just can't get into her voice. Perhaps- Justine Eyre?


    Could you see Outpost being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Perhaps- zombies are in, I guess.
