Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular conclusion to the trilogy I was blown away by the third and final book in the Infernal Devices. I really admire the strength of the relationships between the characters; the lengths they would go to and the sacrifices they would make to save each other moved me to pieces. Masterful writing by Cassandra Clare!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Finale!! I started reading this finale a year and a half ago. I got half way through it and put it aside.... I didn't want it to end! I finally got sick of seeing an unfinished book on my goodreads account and finished it in 2 sittings. It's hard to wrap up a series, let alone a trilogy. Cassandra Clare does a phenomenal job. I didn't think that there were any lose ends. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and will reread this series a lot. You think the story wraps up so well..... Then the epilogue happens. I don't want to give anything away so all I can say is I've never read such a great epilogue. Thanks Ms Clare!!!!! What a ride. My only only complaint was that I bought the book online and when it arrived the dust jacket and front cover were sliced. I ordered the book a few years ago and didn't notice until I started reading it :( I'm disappointed that Chapters would ship a damaged product - it obviously happened from a box cutter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great end to the trilogy By the time I read this book (the third in the series) I was already fond of every character. I don't believe I have ever been so entranced by book. I read it so fast as to find out what happens next. Cassandra Clare created such a wonderful ending that was better than anything I could have ever expected. The Infernal Devices series is definitely worth a read or in my case re-read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd like to give a shout out to this book for having one of the most heart-wrenching endings I have ever read. Clockwork Princess was a wonderful end to the trilogy. All my expectations were met and the plot twists just made it so much better. I can't fully express my thoughts because my emotions are on overdrive at the moment. I loved Charlotte & Henry, Cecily & Gabriel, Sophie & Gideon, even Bridget & Cyril. They were perfect and great in every way. I, of course, loved Jem & Tessa & Will. Jem made me cry multiple times, while Will (in the epilogue) made me sob until my eyes burned. Can we talk about that epilogue? It's quite bitter-sweet and I'm left satisfied and happy and content. It was such a roller coaster ride and I relished every minute of it. P.S. Will Herondale is now included in my list of fictional boyfriends and I have no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Infernal Devices (and TMI) Ok. Over the years, i've read quite a few good books. This however is one of my absolute favourites!!! Cassandra Clare is a genius (with a love of plot twists) I'll tell you, there was a part where i almost had a heart attack (so if you can figure out which part) As a fan of the Mortal Instruments i ave to admit i squealed a little each time i found out about a time parellel with TMI. Or when Magnus came up. Quite a bit of squealing for him. Fangirling aside, make sure you read this series! and the mortal instruments too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cassandra Clare's masterpiece I cried multiple times during the end of the book it was so great. Cassandra Clare wrote and devised these books in the perfect way, tugging and pulling out multiple emotions. Although I was skeptical of a few points at the end she brought it together truly well! And to think brother Zachariah was in her other series The Mortal Instruments!! HA!! Perfect! The time setting at the ending connecting with her other series!! Cassandra Clare is one of the best authors I have read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ending to The Infernal Devices The Clockwork Princess is the perfect book to end the series. Finally after 2 other books, this book reveals all the answers to many of the questions I had. Cassandra Clare didn't miss a beat with this last book. It leaves you wanting another Infernal Devices book to come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible. Cassandra Clare has never let me down. The last of the Clockwork Trilogy left me heart broken: First because it ends the trilogy and second...well, you'll have to read it yourself. Well written, you cannot help but love the characters even more than when you were first introduced to them. Nor can you choose between Will or Jem anymore than Tessa can. You won't regret reading this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Amazing For Words - 10/5 stars -No alot more then that. Clockwork Princess didn't disappoint me at all. I Totally Loved it. It was way more of a five star, but because I only have five, that's what i give it. I don't even know how to describe it. It was way too amazing to put into words. It really brought my emotions out and the, the characters were totally amazing. They were powerful and just wow. It was amazing, powerful, thrilling and a whole heck of a lot more. It was the perfect ending to the series and I just totally loved it. It was sad, happy, and perfect. It was one of the best endings to the series I have ever read. I'm totally gonna miss the series so much. Better then amazing series. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy making end to the series Early on into Clockwork Princess you come across the following passage: “Tessa craned her head back to look at Will. “You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.” For me this quote set the tone for the entire novel. You are in a constant state of anxiety wondering what is going to happen to these poor characters you’ve grown to love so much. Being the third (and final) book in an amazing series, there’s really not much I can say about Clockwork Princess without giving too much away. I will mention that I enjoyed the character development that goes on here – particularly that of more secondary characters, like Sophie, who really comes into her own and Cecily, who is just like a female Will. The complex relationship that is Tessa-Jem-Will is still going strong but like the first two books this is most definitely a love triangle done right. Unlike other books it’s actually a triangle and the line connecting Jem and Will is probably the most touching of them all. I’m happy that Clare gave their friendship as much weight as their romantic feelings for Tessa. I also think that Cassandra Clare has done the best possible job of making sure everyone is happy. And by everyone I mean the readers. There is something for everyone here, no matter what outcome you are rooting for going in. I read Clockwork Princess with my heart in my throat, unable to focus on anything else until I reached it’s conclusion. However it was also one of those books I found myself purposefully slowing down for. Not wanting it to end. It was the perfect mixture of urgency and excitement and it will forever remain one of my favourite series. Recommendation: A fantastic and action filled end to a breath taking series. Clockwork Princess is the perfect farewell to a cast of unforgettable characters This and other reviews at More Then Just Magic (

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect ending to the best series of the century! Clare's innate gift of weaving words together so beautifully. Clare's craft in writing is beyond brilliance, perhaps even out of this world - with Clare's work you don't even have to write a review to promote her books because people already know she's capable of such excellence. It is evident on all her books, in every page and page, of Clare's absolute care for writing, her characters, and the extent of research to create these plots and worlds. Tessa's character is so rejuvenating and inspiring - you rarely see such a strong character in books nowadays and with her character, her wise soul has inspired me to see the world in such selflessness, honor, and absolute love - also, her devotion to books is something many of us could relate to (I for sure can). Will, oh Will, you have taken the name Prince Charming and made it your name. I could think of a thousand broken fictional characters but none of which that I care so much as I have on William Herondale - his unconditional love, devotion, and care for others despite his years of restraining himself of such pleasures and freedom. Will, your love for Tessa makes me believe that such love could exist - despite fictional. James (Jem) Carstairs, I may not hear how you play the violin but your very being is a symphony in every lives you have touched from Will to Tessa to everyone else in the Institute and even us, the readers. Despite your physical fragility, you are such a strong willed character that I could only aspire to be - from your patience on Will until your undying love for him. Charlotte, I wish to be a mother like you. Henry, I just really love you. Sophie, your very name is wisdom itself. Cecily, thank you for loving Will despite all the years of absence and building back your family together. Gideon and Gabriel, oh you swoon-worth brothers and Jessamine, all you have ever wanted was to love and to be loved - I feel so much for your character. If someone were to ask me to describe the Infernal Devices series, I would say it is beauty in all its form. Rarely would I come across a novel or series with such capacity to render me speechless. The Infernal Devices series will surely, with no doubt, stand the test of time and someday become a Classical novel that will inspire so many lives as it has inspired us. Thank you, Cassandra Clare, thank you. "There is no great secret. You endure what is unbearable, and you bear it." -Ciockwork Princess That said, Ave atque vale to the series that has touched every fragment of my soul, tugged at every strings of my heart, left me sobbing like a child and hopeful of such great, undying, and unconditional love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Incredible Journey The end of Clockwork Prince left me frustrated on account of the fact it did not end the way I wanted it. I am absolutely in love with Will Herondale, much more than Jem, so the end of Clockwork Prince was a huge shock for me. I could not WAIT to lay my hands on this book, and it did not disappoint me. I would like to say though, that in this book, Tessa did irritate me more than once. She seems to have become much more impulsive, and it really bothered me how she couldn't make up her mind about who she truly loved. The epilogue was something that I didn't really like. I'm sure many people loved it but I feel it should've ended with Will's death, and that's that. I also think Jem coming back was too much. No wonder Tessa was so confused as to who she loved.. Overall, I found the book fantastic. I could not put it down. I highly suggest reading this series, I find it much better than The Mortal Instruments. I only wish they epilogue was different.. Something about Jem just turns me off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing conclusion to a phenomenal series! I picked this book up yesterday, and finished it today. Stopping reading it so I could go to bed last night was one of the hardest things I've ever done. The story was wonderful, the characters heartbreaking and angst-ridden and so full of life and love ... and the conclusion! I can't remember the last time I read such a satisfying ending to a series. Every turn of the page made it better and better. Brava, Ms. Clare!
