Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Out of all the books that I have read by this author this one is by far my favorite. There is so much character development you tend to forget the main plot of the Infernal Devices being the war with Mortmain. But you are never allowed to completely forget, its still there in the background, however the drama with the characters is so good you don't care.
We already knew that Tessa is preparing to wed Jem and she is dealing with her feelings for Will. But now we are facing the reality of Jem's mortality. It is heart wrenching seeing them all have to say good bye along with the guilt that Will and Tessa feel over their feelings for each other.
We also get to know the other characters so much more. The Lightwood brothers as well as Sophie and Will's sister Cecily are much more developed. There are new love interests and we learn just how complicated these characters are. Gideon and Gabriel are so much more than I realized in other books and they are both great characters both similar and different from each other as brothers usually are.
I loved the way all the loose ends were tied up and nearly all the questions explained. We learn more about what Tessa actually is and how she came to be. We learn her true identity and that is certainly a surprise. And I certainly never expected how the love triangle with Her and Jem and Will would be but it was a great ending to a great love story.
Overall, it was a great final book full of love and loss, tears and joy, endings and beginnings. If you enjoyed the other books in the Infernal Devices series you won't want to miss this one. Loved it! Awesome end to a great trilogy.
