AMAZING ENDING! Don't read the comment below me unless you've finished reading the book. People, at least WRITE spoiler alert if you're going to spoil something!

Too bad that she lives forever and Will dies of old age. But at least Jem turns into a silent brother then they find a cure for his disease and he gets turns back into a shadowhunter and he finally ends up with Tessa in 2008 that's like 200 years. I felt so sad finishing the book, like it was the END. It seemed surreal. I personally like this series more than the Mortal Instruments

Clockwork Princess is the third and final book of The Infernal Devices trilogy. I honestly thought it was the best out of the three, although there were some parts that I didn't enjoy, but overall it was a fairly good read and I would recommend reading it (especially if you are planning/currently read the Mortal Instruments series).

This book was good, but does Tessa have to misinterpret every action of Will and Jem?

-SPOILERS AHEAD- wow. just wow. That was quite a book. I don't normally cry with books, but i started sobbing twice and cried 4 times with this book alone. It was absolutely amazing, no criticism needed, until Will finds Tessa. I really didn't like that part. I mean, come on Tessa. Your fiancee is dead and you barely grieve, you just have sex with his parabatai? That wasn't right. The epilogue, too, annoyed me. I am Team Jem, by the way, and I wasn't very happy with the end. It seemed like Cassandra Clare didn't want to make anyone mad, so she had Tessa end up with Will until he died, and then Jem. I don't know, it just didn't feel right. It seemed like everything was leading up to Tessa's choice- Will or Jem- and her choice ended up being no choice, because she ended up with both, just at different times. I mean, I would have been fine with Tessa ending up with Will and that being that, but even though she's immortal, ending up with both just wasn't the ending I wanted. All in all, an amazing book, though, and I'm sad that this is the end of this series.

Far better than the second book, but not as good as the first. Overall, I think the ending made sense and gave good ideas for the characters while being true to them.

A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

Sexual Content: There is one small part about half way through the book. I cannot specify because it would involve countless spoilers.

"...I would give over my own life for either of yours. I would give over my own life for you happiness. I thought perhaps that when you told me you did not love me, that my own feelings would fall away and atrophy, but they have not. They have grown every day. I love you now more desperately, this moment, than I have ever loved you before, and in an hour I will love you more than that. It is unfair to tell you this, I know, when you can do nothing about it... How you must despise me." -Will Herondale to Tessa Gray

"And now I need you to do for me what I cannot do for myself. For you to be my eyes when I do not have them. For you to be my hands when I cannot use my own. For you to be my heart when mine is done beating. " - Jem Carstairs to Will Herondale
