I loved this book, I loved this series, and I can't wait to find out who Tessa ends up with. Even though I know it will be Will. Clockwork prince was exciting, and had me on the edge of my seat. Expecially when they went to the ball, and then the balcony scene.*yummy* I can't think of anything I didn't like in this books, they made perfect sense to me. I have hear others complain about it dragging, or not making much sense to them. But I eat it all up, and fell in love with Will, if Tessa doesn't want him can I have him--please? LOL kidding, kinda!
I didn't like how Tessa was playing sides with both boys, she came off as greedy. Then her brother, WTH I still hate him. All in all this book was worth it Cassandra Clare's writing is like poetry to me. She is brilliant.
I give this book five ***** stars! It a fantastic read with, love, betrayal, adventure, and even humor!
