There are three books in The Infernal Devices Series:
- CLOCKWORK ANGEL
- CLOCKWORK PRINCE
- CLOCKWORK PRINCESS
I must say, I have been a little bit worried when I've started to read these books. I love the Mortal Instruments series so much. Jace & Clary 's story is so wonderful and unique.. How could I help not to compare their story to this one? Will I enjoy the new story? Will be there a new story and or will it be all to similar to the story I know?
I was pleasantly surprised. I Actually fell in love with these books. The Infernal Devices are unique in it's own way. I read all three books within a week as I was not able to put them down. I wanted to find out how to story ends? Is Tessa truly a warlock? Why does she have the ability she has? Will she choose Will or Jem?
Cassandra Clare wrote a wonderful piece. I have to make a confession I have actually enjoy this book series even more than Mortal Instruments. These books got under my skin. I laughed at the witty conversations between Will and Jem or flirty exchange between Tessa and Will. I cried so much. This book is so well written that I cried and cried. Especially when it got to emotional scenes. Mostly between Jem and Tessa. And I have fallen in love. But to my surprise it wasn't hunky Will Herondale who captured my heart! It was Jem Carstairs who I was truly ruling for all the way through.
I have enjoyed these books so much. We found out more about the Shadow World. We even have more time to spend with one of my favourite character through both series - Magnus Bane. Cassandra did an amazing job writing these books and inter-connecting them the other series. It was the little touches she wrote which made all the difference.
The only issue I have with these books is the fact that from the start you know who will get Tessa at the end. It's so obvious and to me it doesn't feel like a fair game. I wish there would be more from Jem's point of view.
But other than that I have no other cons about this book series. I love these books and they now have a permanent place on my book shelf. IF YOU ENJOYED THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS, YOU WILL LOVE THE INFERNAL DEVICES.
