Book Review: Clockwork Princess, by Cassandra Clare.

I am not usually one that enjoys love stories or happily ever after endings. But this book is so bitter sweet that I was quite shocked and I have found it quite outstanding. I think the whole series has been well worth the read.

The book is written in an exciting way that keeps intrigue and adventure constant. The enclave still continue their war against the clockwork army that Mortmain created. However there is much more at stake this time. Jem’s health is much more delicate of late. So much so he and Tessa decided to make their wedding date sooner. The main reason for his rapid decline being due to Jem’s overuse of the drug that was keeping him alive. Much to the devastation of his parabatai Will and the rest of the institute which had been his home for so long.

I think what really made this story unique is the love triangle between the three. Without giving too much away, the love story works out quite well. And each of them manage to find true love in the end.

Overall I found this book to be well worth reading. It is a fanatic ending to a great series. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the fight for good and evil, in a fantasy fiction skirt of way. Something a little new in an older setting. I give this book a rating of 8.5/10 stars.
