Dusty Pages Review: Clockwork Prince

Love and lies can corrupt even the purest heart... In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, while her desire for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will – the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do? As their dangerous search for the truth leads the three friends into peril, Tessa's heart is ever more torn, especially when one of their own betrays them...

The story of Tessa continues with love, lies and betrayal. We learn more in this book than the first but still leaving enough questions to make a third book worth reading. More about Mortmain - this trilogies villain and about his reasons for attacking shadow-hunters though not why he wants Tessa as his own. We discover why Will Herondale pushes away his chances at love and why he left home, even if it may be too little too late. And we discover a spy in their mists, a character I have to say I could see it coming from and didn't really like much from the start.

There are parts of this story that are so funny you laugh out loud and other moments where your heart just breaks for the characters. Although I know how this story must end (as its touched on at the end of the Mortal Instruments which I read first) it is an entirely different thing watching it unfold before you. This book ends on a cliff hanger so I would have the next installment by your side ready to go.

I give this
