Publisher Review

The plot is fantastic and so orginal! Twists, turns, mysterious, haunting moments. Things you never saw coming did! I enjoyed every page from beginning to end .As soon as I opened the novel it was so haunting and exciting. It had my pulse facing, heart pounding tears rolling down my face and smiling with excitement. This book brought me in straight away and I couldn't believe how many jaw dropping moments there truly was! -- http://www.dark-readers.com/2011/11/book-review-clockwork-prince-inferal.html * Dark Readers * As well as a ridiculous skill for making you fall in love with her characters, Cassandra Clare really knows how to spin an addicting and all-consuming plot. The impending threat of Mortmain, the fear of Charlotte losing the Institute and wondering what on earth Jessamine was up to made me nearly unable to stop after 'just one more chapter' as I kept telling myself. The action was furiously paced and had me holding my breath and the softer down times often had me grinning like an idiot. I love everything that Cassandra Clare writes, even though she writes horrible cliffhangers, and I am beyond ready for Clockwork Princess. * So Little Time for Books * A triumph of a book. Cassandra Clare never disappoints and I am sure that this book will have all the success that it truly deserves. Clockwork Prince is out everywhere in two days' time, so be sure to pick up a copy. You won't regret it, I promise. Warning: The ending may break your heart a little. * YA Book Reads * Clockwork Prince blends together romance and none stop action seamlessly, Cassie Clare showing other Young Adult authors how paranormal romance is done. * Jess Hearts Books * During Queen Victoria's reign, London's downworld is full of supernatural creatures in turmoil. Shadowhunters are tryng to irradicate demons, including Will, who changes when his past is revealed. Other Shadowhunters attempt to find out what their enemy, Mortmain, wants with Tessa. Links between different characters made the story unpredictable. I loved it - can't wait for the next one! * Tesco Magazine Book Club * Highly recommended for anyone looking for thrilling action, hilarious asides and genuine emotion - all in one great book. * Mountains of Instead *
