|Such a pretty cover for such an evil book huh?|
The book picks up about a week after the end of Clockwork Angel, (which if you've read it, is a pretty sad ending itself). Charolette is in danger of losing the Institute to Benedict Lightwood, The Magister is still on the loose, and Will is acting stranger than ever. So this leaves Tessa some time to get to know Jem a bit better(SWOON). So I don't want to spoil anything for you guys, because that would be TERRIBLE of me. You will get to this pain yourself once you read it.
In the beginning there is a lot of funny banter, and some great one liners that will be excellent material for t-shirts one day. (hint, hint. Be expecting to see us in New York again Cassie!
Now. Pause here. How many of you remember Cassie telling us that she cried while writing Chapter 20 of Clockwork Prince? Well, if you follow her on twitter, or tumblr, or anything like that, you probably heard it. And if you're like me and Rachel, you were TERRIFIED. Literally, I've never been so scared to read a chapter in my entire life. If you know Cassie, then you know she isn't the type to cry while writing because something HAPPY happened. ALSO: there is a reason groups have been popping up called "The Survivors of Clockwork Prince" and things like that. JUST SAYING.
So I won't spoil it or anything. Don't worry. But I'm warning you. SERIOUS HEARTBREAK. I thought that I could handle any crazy cliff hangers and EMOTIONAL TORTURE that Cassie threw our way. Example: CITY OF FREAKING FALLEN ANGELS. That ending is a killer. (If you haven't read it yet, by all means, GO AHEAD. You'll freak out, I promise) And then Cassie reaches a whole new low and throws THIS ending at us. I'm not even sure she can fix the emotional heartbreak that she has caused in Clockwork Princess. I literally had to stop reading several times because I couldn't see the book through my tears. (Rachel declared there was no reason to live anymore. Bad I know.) This next part is for Cassie Clare. If you ever do read this, please note that the ending of that book made me wish I could hate you. But I can't, because your books are too awesome and I love you too much. But if that book wasn't signed, it would have been THROWN ACROSS THE ROOM. Just like COFA. I know that probably makes you happy as you love to torture us readers.
Okay, I think that's ENOUGH rambling about this for now, because I'm going to start crying just thinking about it. So go enjoy Clockwork Prince, suffer through Chapter 20, and Chapter 21, because Cassie was cruel enough to put another chapter after it and continue the heartbreak. You will survive, I promise. Rachel and I are still breathing for now. Although the year wait for Clockwork Princess might kill us. Happy reading! Well, not happy, but you know what I mean! Bye! *wipes eyes* *runs off*
*creeps back* *dries eyes* I'm supposed to ask everyone something. Team Will or Team Jem? Or Switzerland? Cause being Switzerland is cool too. *runs off*
