Review of Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)
 In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

My thoughts
YEY! the second book in the series, and I soo want to read it :). My sister bought this and she also let me read it first :D. After reading the first one I wanted to read the second straight away but unfortunately you have to wait. The cover I think is of Jem :) and I just like these covers. 

So this starts off quite close to the last book and yes you have forgotten what happens but you do remember the main parts as you read it so it doesn't really matter. The writing style is the same as the book before so I cant really comment on it, apart from say it was easy to read. The POV changes between characters but it is mostly focused on Tessa or Will.

Onto the interesting part which is the characters, As I do normally I talk about the characters that I feel are the main ones, and well they are the same characters as the book before but you may see some differences. 
Tessa is as brave as she was in the book and maybe more, she does what she thinks is right even if that right thing is wrong, she is such a strong and loveable character. As the book before she was a little annoying but this book she was not annoying and I felt she has grown up a bit more. 
Will was, well what can I say an annoying, self centred boy in the book before, but he shows why and you see a different side of him which I love. He is brave, caring and is now a loveable character. 
In this book you see Jem as the caring and amazing guy as he was in the book before, but you also see what he could be like if you push him into being mad. I love him so much and I like him a lot. 
There are other characters in this book as well as them, but I feel I can't really talk about them. Though Tessa's brother is in this book and he is as evil as we know he is. 

My overall opinion of this book is, it involves romance and love.. as well as action and disaster. 
I recommend this book to people who read Cassandra Clare's books or has read The mortal instruments series, and people who have started reading this series by reading Clockwork Angel.
