Clockwork AngelClockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Reading: March 19 to March 24, 2019
Resume: In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Let me say it right away : it might be the book i liked the less of the trilogy. I’ve never been a fan of love triangle, and even if, as always wis cassandra clare, it was very well written, i couldn’t start to care about tessa loving jem at all. And, as i said in my last review : i fell deeply in love with will, and seeing him so sad just broke my tender heart.

Love triangle are always a big no to me.

Beside that, the story was very good. the whole plot about the magister’s true identity, Charlotte’s game of power with the Lightwoods… mamaaaaa that was a good one. I loved it, as i loved the first one. I wish i could say more, but if i do that, i will be spoiling each and every page of the book so… I’m just going to stop there.
