The Clockwork Princess

Well, folks, that’s it! Show’s over, time to go home, read something dull, completely lacking in gothic romance, victorian ideals, and absolutely all mention of cogs, springs and bits of machinery. The zeppelin has landed! Tess, Will and Jem took all their pent up frustration out in a riveting game of whist. clockwork princess book cover

Just joking, that’s not exactly how it happened.

To be honest, I had kind of forgotten about this book until I looked on tumblr and realized that it was out. Then I promptly bought it and got totally sucked in.

I think this was my favorite one in the Infernal Devices series. There was a lot less pathetic mooning, very little random mentions of cogs and springs and lots of tension between Tess, Will and Jem. That’s what we’re all here for anyway, right?

I’m not going to spoil the book for anyone, so I hope you’re not here for a summary. There was a lot going on and I don’t think I can talk about it without blowing some major plot points.

Here’s my one complaint though, and this is a possible spoiler, I felt like everything ended too neatly. I was team Will, so maybe I’m just biased and annoyed, but the way everything went down really bothered me. A happy ending for everyone! Yay! Confetti! (ouch, turns out it was made from rusted up bits of metal)

In any event, I’m going to try The Mortal Instruments now. I couldn’t get into them before, but maybe the back story will make them more readable for me.

Oh, yeah- stay uncomfortable, keep reading.
