The Clockwork Prince
by Cassandra Clare
Margaret K. McElderry Books, 502 pgs. Young Adult Fiction
Cassandra Clare’s popular Mortal Instruments’ series gets a reboot with a Victorian historical setting in her Infernal Devices prequel series. Book two, The Clockwork Prince, continues the search for the Magister who has vowed to kill all Shadow Hunters and rule the world. Tessa Gray, the young American woman who was kidnapped by the Magister in the first book for her unique ability to transform herself into any living being is still trying to discover what she is since she does not have any demon mark as all half-demons do. She also finds herself attracted to two Shadow Hunters, the handsome, yet emotionally distant Will, and tender-hearted Jem.
I have enjoyed this series as much or some times more than the original series. Cassandra Clare does a great job with the historical setting that enhances the story.
