My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
It’s time—for the riveting sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling Clockwork Angel! The situation at the London Institute has never been more precarious. With Mortmain and his clockwork army still threatening, the Council wants to strip Charlotte of her power and hand the running of the Enclave over to the unscrupulous and power-hungry Benedict Lightwood. In the hope of saving Charlotte and the Institute, Will, Jem, and Tessa set out to unravel the secrets of Mortmain’s past—and discover unsettling Shadowhunter connections that hold the key not only to the enemy’s motivations, but also to the secret of Tessa’s identity. Tessa, already caught between the affections of Will and Jem, finds herself with another choice to make when she learns how the Shadowhunters helped make her a “monster.” Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain’s side? Where will her loyalties—and love—lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London…or end them forever.
I was so excited to listen to this book, once I found out that Ed Westwick was one of the narrators I knew that I was going to enjoy listening to it. In case you don't know who Ed is he played Chuck on the show Gossip Girl which wasn't my favorite show or anything but, I loved his character. Plus, he is British but does a great American accent which I knew was perfect for this book. Heather Lind also did a great job with the narration and after listening to the two of them, I could easily tell which voices they used for which character and I really loved that.
From the first book I already knew that I was definitely Team Will, I don't know why but, most of the time I just have a thing for the mysterious guy and I really feel like we have got to know Will more in the first two books then we have Jem, I don't know why but he doesn't appeal to me at all. We definitely learn more about Will in Clockwork Prince, who throughout the book works with Magnus to help Will finally be able to get close to Tessa like he wants to. Following Will throughout the book had me going on an emotional roller coaster and I bawled at the end of the book when everything was finally said and done.
I was really looking forward to learning more about Tessa, I was so curious about what she was and I will admit that I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get to learn as much about Tessa as I had hoped and I felt like romance took the forefront of this book more so then The Mortal Instruments series or even Clockwork Angel.
Overall, I was hoping for more information on Tessa and a bit more action but, I loved the romance and it had me feeling all the feels and like I said above it brought me to tears and I am dying to read Clockwork Princess and find out more about Tessa and the romance!!
