Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

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. 
RATING: 5 out of 5 Stars

I'm impressed by Clockwork Princess and the way it ended. It was happiness with a tinge of sadness and it's really a good blend of the two emotions. Cassandra Clare has a way with her words to make me feel so emotional when I read Clockwork Princess.

I have no complains about her great casts of characters, ever. Each and every one of them has a big part to play and have their own happy ending of some sort, especially so for the main characters of the book. It's also good to see character development and growth through the characters' decision, sacrifices and thoughts from Clockwork Angel to Clockwork Prince and then to this Clockwork Princess. They will be remembered!

Reading Clockwork Princess made me appreciate the whole The Mortal Instruments series a little more, seeing how the characters blend with each other. There's this family tree in Clockwork Princess that displays the characters from one generation to another from TID to TMI and needless to say, I'm impressed. I will definitely re-read Clockwork Princess and the entire TID.
