4 Stars

Short Story about Tessa, Jem and what happened after that meeting at Blackfriar’s Bridge at the Epilogue of Clockwork Princess.

MY THOUGHTS…

Thank you Carol and Sandy for introducing this to me! xoxoxo

I won’t be making this review long because it will spoil those who haven’t yet read the final book of The Infernal Devices.

So here’s my opinion…

This short story is somewhat a continuation to what happened during the epilogue of the Clockwork Princess. I have to say that  this one is satisfying, though it’s not at all necessary (for me) because I am quite satisfied with the Clockwork Princess’ ending. But because I was still hangover with the book, I didn’t hesitate to read this short story because I was too curious and I think I can’t sit still without finding out more about the characters.

The short story did not disappoint me as it entertained me and well, made me feel in love all over again. Still, I don’t know how to move on with this series. Ugh. It’s hard, you know.

So if you guys have already read the Clockwork Princess, you might as well proceed with this short story after reading the book, to extend the feels. 😀

(NOTE: Don’t read this short story if you haven’t completed The Infernal Devices series yet. Okay?) 😀

REVIEW: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)

five-stars

Tessa Gray should be happy—aren’t all brides happy? Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa’s heart, will do anything to save her.

MY THOUGHTS…

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts, they shatter even the strength of iron or bronze.

I still could not move on right now. I was speechless and numb for quite a few minutes after reading this. Anyone of you who feels the same after reading a series-ender that is so epic and memorable you can hardly think straight? Ugh.

Clockwork Princess surprised me. And Cassandra Clare continues to surprise me to no end! I did not expect to love this series because honestly, Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince did not mean much to me at first because I found them quite dull but then— my feelings suddenly shifted after reading Clockwork Princess. I love it already! I love the whole series and the beautiful characters and the Shadowhunter world that it pains me to know that it already ended. 😦

And it’s so hard right now. Everything is heartbreakingly beautiful! I love how Cassie completed the series, no matter what happened in the end. Still. The Infernal Devices is so great!

Aarrgh! I know I’m not making any sense anymore, but I need a moment to recover from my book hangover. Like right now. :’-D
