Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2)

“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.” 


Tessa found a place for herself with the Shadowhunters. But Charlottle Branwell’s status as a head of the London Institute is being compromised, and with it Tessa’s safe haven. Now, they get two weeks to find a devious man who is a danger to all Shadowhunters. If they fail, they might lose everything.

At this point it seems pointless to say anything more about Cassie’s writing style. I am just repeating myself over and over again. I love everything about her writing. The end.

Something strange happened with me while I was reading this book. I used to love these characters. But for some reason for the most part of the story felt very… indifferent about most of them. Well, except for Jem. I love Jem.

If you don’t like these characters that much you are not going to like this book at all, because where it comes to plot… nothing happens for like 85% of the book. If not more. I was actually surprised by how boring this book was to me.

This is a perfect example of second book syndrome. It just felt like a filler between the first and the third book. The only thing that was actually developed were the relationships between the characters. Everything else was really disappointing.



You can find this book on Goodreads and Book Depository

  1. I have thought about checking out this series and then I keep forgetting about it. That second book syndrome, I totally get it. Sometimes they stretch things out because things are just expected to be trilogies. It really shows in the writing.
