Book Review | Clockwork Prince

source: here

Clockwork Prince Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's been awhile since I last cried while reading a book.

I wanted to start reading this sequel right after I've finished Clockwork Angel and I'm not going to lie, I've felt a little bit regret for finishing it merely within 2 days as I do want to savour the wave of emotions washed all over me.

when the betrayer within the Institute was revealed, I was not surprised at all because the person has every reason to, or desperate enough to but I, at some point, managed to understand the person. Of course, 'The Law is hard, but it is the Law' so I guess the punishment is inevitable especially at this time of the period, there isn't much of loophole.

My heart ached for Will Herondale, obviously and I often wonder whether James Castairs simply clueless about Will's longing for Tessa or he decided that he wanted to have fair chance of winning the maiden's heart too? Will James back out if he knew the reason why Will had been keeping everything to himself, pushing people away, suffering and longing, before he poured his heart's desire to Tessa? One simply might have said yes, given James' character but really? #typicallovetriangleissue

Overall, I love the pace, the setting, how Cassandra rendered the fighting scenes and my gosh, Will Herondale is just beautiful. haha

Also, there are many Collin's classic being used as reference here and there and that's definitely want to go back to our main residence to pick up some of those that I've read back in primary school - my fave would be The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
