In short... I recommend this series. All three books were very enjoyable. And, you get the supreme pleasure of a happy ending. That allows me to walk away from this series fully satisfied. And that's pretty rare. You usually end up lamenting about one character or another, wanting more or different. But not with this series. Just enjoyable listening, an interesting story, intriguing and likable characters and an awesome ending. Ahhhhhh. :)
It's among my favorites, for sure.
When Will finds Tessa in Mortmain's lair. I was laughing and crying at the same time. Phenomenal.
That would be a toss up between Tessa, Will and Magnus. I adore all of them, though. It was brilliantly done.
I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I held my breath, it was amazing.
Clockwork Princess is the third and final installment in The Infernal Devices trilogy by the incomparable Cassandra Clare. I was terrified to read this book, I won't lie. I bought it the moment it released and then started it and put it down, so very afraid of what was going to happen to my beloved Tessa, Will and Jem. I wanted to know what happened- yes- but I didn't want it to be over. I did not want to say goodbye. So I shelved it. I'm a wimp, I own it. However, after my recent visit to Oblong Books & Music where I got to hear Cassie speak & get a picture with her and Holly Black (yay!), I found I was unable to put it off any longer. I put on my big girl panties and started the book again.
The story picks up not long after Clockwork Prince ended and dives right back into the action. I have to say, I was so happy that this book was so long. My hardcover copy was over 500 pages-I LOVE big books. Love them. And I felt Clare really tied all the necessary threads off to satisfactorily wind up her trilogy. I honestly don't know how to review this book without gushing and screaming in both happiness and heartbreak. There is just so much to scream about. And we don't do spoilers here and I would never want to be responsible for ruining someone else's reading experience.
I will say this-all of you authors attempting to write love triangles, you should all be taking notes from Cassandra Clare. Here, finally, we have a TRUE triangle. Three people who all truly love one another-not in a weird, kinky way- but real, deep, abiding, lasting, timeless love. Both romantic love and the love between friends and/or brothers, it leaps off the pages. Who should Tessa choose? No matter what happens, someone's heart will be broken, they could all potentially wind up alone and shattered inside.
Reading this book was a bit of a traumatic experience if I'm being honest. I couldn't stop once I'd started again. I had to know what would happen and how things would fall in the end. It was beautiful and brilliant and I know I'm gushing, I'm sorry but I am sincere in saying that I don't think I will ever love a series or the characters therein as much as I have these ones. They have left their marks on my soul and I see many re-reads in my future.
This series rekindled my intense love of reading. Working full time leaves little free time to read so listening during work has become my reading. The ending was beautiful but I will leave no spoilers. So much love. The story was beautifully performed.
In the first half, I thought this was another tedious angst-ridden YA novel, but I am glad I stuck with it. There were some great plot twists and I actually shed a few tears near the end, which is unusual for me.
One of the best endings I've ever read. Very satisfying wrap up of the series. I will mentioned that I bawled like a baby towards the end, damn Cassandra for that.
just wow. so good couldn't turn it off. The author created a world so amazing and vivid that u feel like u were there. it also sheds light on some of the character relations in the mortal instruments.
AHHHHH I was not a happy camper when Jem went to become a silent brother and Teas and Will began their courtship---
I was FUMING when Tess and Will slept together when they thought Jem had died--- even if he had.... it had only been hours maybe a day. I get that they also believed they would die but I still had trouble with it. But I loved when he decided to court her the long way around and how deeply they both felt the loss of Will.
The death of Will was so beautiful and the details of their life together brought tears to my eyes. And when Jem came in and played him a song of his life on his death bed I lost it! Soooo beautiful! SO MANY TEARS!
I would have been happy their and the fact that she added in Jem and Tessa finding their way back to eachother was just an added bonus! looovvveee.
