Clockwork Princess Book Revew

Clockwork Princess Book Review
April 5, 2013 

Tess, Tess, Tessa.

Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it – a heart ringing – but when you touch me that is what it is like: as if my heart is ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.

Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton. Yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love. At least he could do something to prove his passion, even if that thing was to die.

I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free.

And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.

You are not the last dream of my soul.

You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.

With hope at least,
Will Herondale

Now for my Book Review.... 
What a great end to an amazing Series!!! From the very beginning I fell in love with these amazing characters. Cassandra Clare has created such an unforgettable world and unforgettable characters. I honestly didn't know how it was going to end. From the beginning I was Team Will, and even to the last page I was Team Will then I became Team Jem as well. I am so glad that Tessa was able to have the best of both Worlds in the past and present and even in the future. I love how all the questions that we as fans of the Infernal Devices wanted to know are answered. I love how in some of the conversations between the characters reflects back to the beginning of the series. Moments such as those brought a smile to my face. There were so many awe so sweet moments and so many what is happening here and what just happened moments!! It made me happy that Will and Cecily who is also one of my favorite characters were able to mend ties with their parents!! I also really enjoyed the heart felt conversations between Tessa and Jem and Will and Tessa, and of course the last heart felt conversation between Will and Jem!! In this book we really get to know Magnus Bane and see not only his funny witty side but his sincere side as well!! There also was so much growth with most every character throughout this series as well. I laughed and I cried and there were even moments where I wanted to throw the book across the room!! In the end I was very happy with the way it ended. I am so glad that Cassandra Clare included the family tree for the Herondales, Carstairs and Lightwoods, with the book. It was way neat to see who was related to who all the way up to the present. I couldn't ask for a better ending!!! I am sad to say good bye to these characters for I felt that I was on a crazy and wonderful adventure right along with the characters till the very end. I highly recommend this book!!!!
