Tessa Gray should be happy – aren't all brides happy? Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.
*May Contain Spoilers*
The epic finish to the Infernal Devices trilogy is a whirlwind of sacrifice and worry, death and the threat of destruction. But would we expect anything else from Cassandra Clare? Clockwork Princess is the chilling end to the prequel series, and thank goodness there's more in the form of Mortal Instruments.
Tessa Gray will forever be a daring heroine (and not only because she's immortal). When she's kidnapped by Mortmain, the Magister, the Institute must convince the Clave that she needs to be rescued as she will be his biggest weapon against the Shadowhunters. Readers finally see the warrior inside of Tessa, the woman who would sacrifice anything and everything to keep the ones she loves safe. The connection formed in the first two novels will solidify in this third installment.
And not only with the lovely Miss Gray. The fate of both Jem and Will are decided and revealed in Clockwork Princess. There will be unabashed happiness and unstoppable tears. Readers will revel in the words of Clare as the fate of the Infernal trio comes to light.
The plot follows Tessa and Jem's plans to be married along with her kidnapping by Mortmain. Then when the Clave refuses to help, readers are witness to hell in the form of demon-infested automatons. Everything is nicely wrapped up without a single loose thread, that I could see, presenting readers with the ultimate end of the series. Some ties will cause sadness, others happiness. But still, we'll all wish for more.
