Goodreads Summary:
A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

My Thoughts:

Clockwork Princess was absolutely amazing! The story just kept getting better and better with every page, and I loved every moment of it.

I admit that I did not care much for Will at the beginning of this trilogy, but after reading Clockwork Princess, I have come to love him just as much as Jem. Tessa's identity is revealed as well as her importance to Mortmain. I did have my doubts before reading this that I would be left with questions, but I am happy to say that that was not the case. I was very satisfied with how things came together.

This book had everything: action, suspense, unexpected twists. Seriously the best book in the trilogy.
