Sunday Sequels (45)


Sunday sequels is my own meme. Every Sunday, I'll post covers, news, or other stuff about sequels in a popular series. This week I'm going to talk about Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare. 


Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare 
August 30, 2011

The Infernal Devices is a series of prequels to The Mortal Instruments series, set in 19’th century London. The story concerns 16-year-old orphan Tessa Gray, whose quiet life is thrown into turmoil when her older brother Nathaniel suddenly vanishes, leaving her alone.

Her search for him leads her into Victorian-era London’s dangerous supernatural underworld, where warlocks throw masked balls for half-demon Downworlders. When Tessa discovers that she herself is a Downworlder, she must come to trust her natural enemies, the demon-killing Shadowhunters, if she ever wants to learn to control her powers and find her brother.

Torn between the beautiful Will, a Shadowhunter who isn’t what he seems, and the devoted Jem, whose own deadly secret is slowly destroying him, Tessa must draw on all her strength to save her brother and keep herself alive in this deadly new world. (taken from goodreads.com)

While I don't love The Infernal Devices series nearly as much as The Mortal Instruments series, I'm still excited for Clockwork Prince. Will can't possibly compare to Jace Wayland, but Jem and Tessa are interesting characters. I'm interested to see what will happen.

I'll admit that I didn't absolutely LOVE book 1, but I'm so intrigued by the series, that I'll for sure want to read this one! I can't wait to see the cover! :)
