A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the them. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: He needs Tessa Gray. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

yes, i have many times.
I have never really been a fan of this period in literature, in fact it usually drives me mad, but Cassandra Clare just has a way of telling a story that really speaks to me.
Clockwork Princess brought the Infernal Devices to an end in a beautiful way. It was well narrated and connects with the Mortal Instruments story nicely.
The ending with Tessa and Jem (Brother Zachariah)
He narrated the book well.
I did read it in one sitting as I have a kindle fire and I speed the narration up to get through my books faster.
I enjoyed this finale even more than the end of the mortal instruments. Absolutely perfect. And the best narration in the whole series!
This final installment of the Infernal Devices series improved on the previous two. The narration by Daniel Sharman was very enjoyable (MUCH better than the previous two books) and the story moved along nicely (although I found the love triangle rather tiring). I would certainly recommend it.
loved all three of these books. some of the best books I've had. totally brilliant.
"Excellent book and reading!"
One of Cassandra Clare's best books, read wonderfully, with all the accents accurately performed.
if you lived the mortal instruments series this is for you it hit all the wins for me
Romance, Shadowhunters and heatbreak
Tessa Gray, she pull everything together
The book grips you, wanting to not stop reading/listening.
Cannot wait until the next series is released
loved this series but would have preferred the same guy from the second book to have done the will, jem, and so on voices. But that's just me
"A great end to the trilogy, much better narration"
Firstly - the narration in this one is great, best of the three by far, and it made a huge difference.
I feel like story wise I enjoyed this one the most as well, not sure how much of that is because I wasn't distracted by awful narration, as was the case with book one and part of book two. It was nice to see the story through and find out what happened to each of the characters, some of it was a bit predictable but I enjoyed it none the less. The tie ins were nicley done, and made me want to go back and read some of Mortal Instruments again, knowing what I know now. All in all a good end to the series - fun , enjoyable , easy listening escapism.
"Loved it and want more"
This book is the icing on the cake for this group of books I am left wanting more I can't wait to see what the author is going to do with the next story what is going to happen with Jem and Tessa are they going to raise Jem's great great niece how will he explain and will Jace find out who Tessa is please keep writing
"A Cracking end to a cracking tale"
Having committed to the "Mortal Instruments Series", this final installment of the "Infernal Instruments" prequel brings a number of twists and turns in the fortunes of favourite characters and some of their forbears to surprising but satisfying ends.
The characters are well drawn and engaging, with the addition of extra layers of pleasing detail to the history and customs of the complex "Shadow" world that the author has created.
Best of all however is the subtle and engaging delivery of Daniel Sharman's narration; finding at last the quality of tenor, accent (Welsh being long overdue for Will) and style which these beautifully developed characters deserve.
Pretty much as good as young adult gothic/fantasy fiction can possibly get.
