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.'


Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the No. 1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy, a prequel series to The Mortal Instruments. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is in cinemas August 2013. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the third and final instalment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.


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 *
