Wow! I don't even know where to start with this review. This book was without a doubt the most emotional book I have ever read. It was an emotional roller-coaster and through half of it I was so torn and didn't really know what to feel. I was a wreck through pretty much the whole book.
Tessa escaped from the clutches of the evil Mortmain at the end of Clockwork Angel but the danger is not over yet. The Shadowhunters must find Mortmain and discover what he is doing before it is too late and with the help of the beautiful but mysterious Will and the kind-hearted Jem, Tessa finds herself torn between the best friends and no matter what happens someone's heart is bound to be broken, including her own.
I can't even think about this book without wanting to burst into tears I am so heartbroken. This book is without a doubt my favourite book of the year because no book has ever made me react the way I did to this one. I was an emotional wreck throughout the whole book. One minute I wanted to jump up and down with joy and the next I wanted to throw my kindle at the wall so I couldn't read any more of the book that was causing me torture.
So much happened throughout this book that I don't even know what to write about is as I don't want to spoil anything. This book was so fast-paced and I was just coming to terms with one shock and a twist in the story when there was another that left me reeling.
My favourite character in this series is Will. I just love him and with each book I read in this series (yea I know there's only 2) my heart just breaks more and more for him. At the end of Clockwork Angel I was so torn, I loved Will so much but he was so mean to Tessa and I didn't really understand why. You learn so much about Will throughout this book and I just wanted to jump into the book to give him a hug.
As much as I love Will I also love Jem, just not as much. Jem is such a sweetie and he thinks about everyone else before himself and I feel so bad for him. This book is very much Jem's book. He is in it a lot more than Will, yes I wanted more Will but this didn't change the fact that this was such a phenomenal book.
This is the only book that I have read that caused me to have a nervous breakdown because that is exactly what happened. At one point in the book I actually threw my kindle across the table and couldn't pick it up for hours afterwards because I hated what was happening. I just started screaming and spent around half an hour in an outrage screaming NOOO WHY?????
After that the denial kicked in with me going, No I must have read it wrong.
After me being an emotional wreck and turning into a crazy woman screaming at my kindle I finally managed to finish the book and I am a lot more calm and optimistic about Clockwork Princess. I truly believe in Cassandra and believe it will all work out in the end.
This is 100% the best book Cassandra Clare has ever written and I love The Infernal Devices so much more than The Mortal Instruments. I am so excited for Clockwork Princess.
I think Cassandra Clare is just a genius for writing these books and as much as she likes to torture her readers she is phenomenal as not every author can get a reaction like that out of me.
Best book I have ever read!
