April 2013 Book of the Month Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close.

Clockwork Princess is the third in the brilliant Infernal Devices series which began with Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince.

But don't just take our word for it, here is a review from Harriet Cunningham, who is an avid reader and also a member of the Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel:


'The Infernal Devices' series is without a doubt one of my favourite book series' of all time. I'm not going to spoil the details for you, the unpredictability of these books is part of the reason I was unable to put them down. Instead, I think telling you my reaction will be persuasive enough.

I fell in love with the story. Cassandra Clare writes beautifully and her descriptions create characters that are so incredibly true to life and genuine. However, these are characters that live in a very different world to what you and I experience, and it’s escapism at its best.

The complexity of the story and the originality of the plot only add to the intrigue and once you look up several days later, I can guarantee that you will do nothing but want to go back.'

Reviews

The conclusion to the love triangle evokes a lot of emotions and there's tears and laughs throughout the read Buzzfeed, The 21 Best YA Books Of 2013 I enjoyed the first two books, so obviously had to read the last one, and I wasn't disappointed at all. This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster - one minute I'd be happy and excited, the next I'd be crying because of the sad scenes (sad, but beautiful). It didn't take me long to finish, because I couldn't put it down! The Guardian Online

About the Author

Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Teheran, Iran and spent much of her childhood travelling the world with her family, including one trek through the Himalayas as a toddler where she spent a month living in her father's backpack. She lived in France, England and Switzerland. Since her family moved around so much she found familiarity in books and went everywhere with a book under her arm. Her favourites included the work of the Bront' sisters and Tolkien, as well as the Chronicles of Narnia, Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles and Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising series. She spent her high school years in Los Angeles where she used to write stories to amuse her classmates, including an epic novel called The Beautiful Cassandra based on the eponymous Jane Austen short story (and from which she later took her current pen name).

Cassandra's first piece of professional writing, a short story called 'The Girl's Guide to Defeating the Dark Lord', appeared in an anthology of humour fantasy. She hates working at home alone because she always gets distracted by reality TV shows and the antics of her two cats, so she usually sets out to write in local coffee shops and restaurants. Cassandra likes to work in the company of her friends who see that she sticks to her deadlines. She loves writing humour and fantasy and hopes to try her hand at horror and science fiction some day.

Things you didn't know about Cassandra Clare

1. I only type with two fingers.

2. I once interviewed the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

3. I have two cats, Linus and Lucy. Linus is huge and Lucy is tiny, so if you averaged them out, you would have one normal cat.

4. I have a scuba diving certificate but I never dive due to my fear of sharks.

5. I often get distracted listening to audio books on my iPod, then realize I am lost and have no idea where I am.

6. My favourite food is sushi.

7. I hate coffee but I like tea.

8. I was once taken in by an internet scam offering to sell me a penguin.

9. My dream is to have a library in my house, so big that it requires ladders to get to the tallest shelves.

10. As a child I wanted to be a windsurfing instructor and live in Tahiti.
