Waiting on Wednesday: Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming December 6, 2011!

Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing 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 Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

This is kind of stating the obvious, right? But I cannot tell you how badly I want this one! Magic + Mystery + Victorian London + Sexy Boys = my favorite things. The Shadowhunter world Cassandra Clare has created, on top of the already lush world of Victorian England...I could just die there *dreamy sigh* And the ending of Clockwork Angel?! About one Mr. Will Herondale?? (First of all, how sexy is that name? Say it out loud. See what I mean?) How can you leave us hanging off that cliff, Cassie? Ok, I'm rambling and gushing and fangirling, so I'm going to stop now, but I love this series so hard.

How about you? Are you an Infernal Devices fan? Will or Jem?

I'm absolutely dying for this one too. Especially after that cliff. I can't believe we have to wait so long! I'm hoping to get my hands on an ARC somehow... One can hope, can't they?

Haven't read anything by this author, but I will. Nice choice. I'm fascinated by the guy on the cover. He looks so unusual.

Jan von Harz said...

Excited to see where this one will take us and since I always tend to lean more for the quiet intellectual types I am a bigger fan of Jem than Will, but assume Will will end up on top. Great pick!

Carina said...

If I were Tessa, I don't think I'd be able to choose between Jem and Will. Their both sooo awesome. Clockwork Prince needs to be released NOW, so I can enjoy their awesomeness again. ;)

Great pick. :)

Don't even get me started! I'm digging this series so badly - even more than the original TMI!

Seriously on the fence with these two boys. I won't mind either way but why do I get the feeling that Will will (LOL) get the girl? What's going to happen to the other guy? GAH!

Here's my WOW!

I feel like a really bad Cassandra Clare fan because I still haven't read COFA or Clockwork Angel *ducks* but I still can't wait to read the reviews of Clockwork Prince. I'm sure it'll be great!

Here's mine:

Oh my gosh, I can't wait for this book to come out! This series (as well as Cassie's Mortal Instruments) is one of my favourites of all time!

The thing about this one, though, is that I really do love both Will and Jew with Tessa, just in completely different ways. I can't decide! Right now, I'm sort of leaning towards Will, but I don't have any clue how much that's going to change in this book!

Thanks so much for stopping by! This is an awesome pick for your WOW! :)

I'm reading Cassie's first book at the moment. This sounds good though, I must hurry up!
