5.0 out of 5 stars BelleBooks 9 Jan 2012
This is the second book in The Infernal Devices series, a prequel series to Cassandra's Mortal Instruments.
I started reading this one literally as soon I finished the last page in Clockwork Angel, I am so glad that I read them back to back, as I don't think I could have bared to wait any longer for answers.
Now I am stuck in the same predicament, having finished Clockwork Prince I don't want to wait ages to get my hands on Clockwork Princess!

Clockwork Prince picks up right where we left Tessa and the gang in Clockwork Angel, if the London institute do not bring Mortmain down and soon, Charlotte could loose the institute to the Lightwood family.

Tessa is a much better character in this book, the reader gets to see her true nature and personality as well as her quick thinking and great wit in this book. She isn't portrayed as the damsel in distress any more, as she was in Clockwork Angel. I really liked that change as I hate weak female leads in books, I think it sends out completely wrong messages to teens reading the books.

We also get to see a different side to both Will and Jem in this book, I think the biggest change would have to be in Will. After discovering the truth about his past I felt like I just wanted to grab him out of the book, give him a big hug and tell him everything will be alright!

I enjoyed the plot line in this book much more than I did with Clockwork Angel, maybe thats because I feel like I know more about the characters now. Perhaps it was because I loved all the angst and the love triangle going on in this book. I also loved the fact that we get to see more of Magnus Bane in this book. He is by far one of my favourite characters in The Mortal Instruments, it was brilliant to see him popping up again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clockwork Prince 4 Jun 2013
This is the second book in 'The Infernal Devices' trilogy, prequels to 'The Mortal Instruments' series, set in the same fictional world. The first book is Clockwork Angel, and the third is Clockwork Princess.
While the first book focused mainly on the mechanical creatures and the Will/Tessa romance, in this we see more of Jem. I didn't think much of him in CA, but this story made me feel more sympathetic to him and his illness. Tessa and Jem become VERY close, and thus the typical love triangle is established.
But it's a bit unorthodox because Will and Jem are the closest of parabatai, fighting partners sworn by blood oath, and love each other more than brothers. So there's no rivalry, thanks to that, and also because neither have any clue about the other's feelings. Which is a bit unlikely, that two people that close would never confide in one another that they were in love, or that neither would notice the other staring at the girl they love.
There's still a lot of action and typical Shadowhunter coolness, but there's more in here about the characters feelings and background stories. I began to care more for what happened to them, and saw them more favorably. If you've read Clockwork Angel, you should definitely buy this. It keeps up the pace, carrying on the storyline but adding thickness to the plot. A really interesting read, and one of a fab trilogy that is almost as good as TMI. But failing to meet TMI's standard was inevitable, as those books are a stroke of genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging 8 May 2013
So...after my rather intense visceral reaction to Clockwork Angel, I must admit it was with some trepidation that I clicked on Clockwork Prince as I fervently hoped and prayed that I would be proved wrong as expressed in my review of CA and happily I admit The Infernal Devices holds a much more esteemed position of favour in my heart! Whilst at times I consider the characters and world to be less developed and rich as TMI, I am much more intrigued and involved than I thought and I will admit to shedding a few tears whilst reading this book. The last 20% was intense and reinvigorated my love for Cassandra Clare. I still cannot see Clockwork Angel as a stand-alone book in it's own right, it really does feel like simply an intro to TID with too many loose ends but the writing in CP is far more structured and altogether a tighter, well thought-out story that I enjoyed very much.

So what did I like? Well one of my main gripes was the characterisation. In CA, I had felt in comparison to TMI, the characters were more caricatures of Victorian London and didn't tug at my emotions and make me care for them like I had gasped, sighed and cried over Jace & co. Will was the main character I had problems with. As his story is much more developed in CP, my sympathy and understanding grew for him and he has become a real favourite however perhaps in my old age, snark is not a particularly attractive quality in a potential mate and, I feel CC really did him a disservice in not exploring his storyline more in CA which meant I really couldn't bring myself to root for him and Tessa for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 4 Jan 2012
By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Cassandra Clare is an amazing novelist. She has two series in which she is currently writing alternating books. This series is set in the same world as the other but over a century earlier. These stories are about epic battles between good and evil. They explore a shadow world hidden from most of us. In this one, we discover that a clockwork army is being built with the sole purpose of destroying the Nephilim, a group of people blessed with the blood of an Angel who has been commissioned to protect the rest of us.

Tessa Gray is becoming a strong independent woman and a valued member of the London Institute.

In this book, we learn a lot more history of the Nephilim, and the accords, and the history behind the animosity between down worlders and the Nephilim. It is another wonderfully written story, set in a world of magic, myths, legends and mayhem. An awesome read!
