During the reign of Queen Victoria, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters, the protectors of order, dedicated to keeping the demons from harming humans. Yet in London's Downworld, under its gaslit streetlights, Tessa may again be alone and on her own.

In fact, Tessa soon finds out the Magister, head of the Pandemonium Club, not only wants her powers, but wants to take out Will and Jem, blaming these two confidants of hers for a tragedy in his past.

Once again torn between two men, the defiant Will and the steady Jem, the answer to whom Tessa might choose lies in the secrets of the Magister's past. When lies and love mix, this is a poison no one wants to drink, and Tessa may have to set aside her desires to keep her heart pure! Cassandra Clara was born in 1973. Her real name is Judith Rumelt. She has written a number of books in the young adult fiction genre, and is best known for her series The Mortal Instruments. Born in Iran, her parents were a business professor and an author, respectively. Her grandfather was famed film producer Max Rosenberg. Though Clare is Jewish, she does not consider herself or her family religious. She has worked at numerous entertainment magazines and tabloids and began writing fan fiction of the Harry Potter series and The Lord of the Rings. Clare lives in Massachusetts with her husband and three cats.

The riveting sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling Clockwork Angel

The situation at the London Institute has never been more precarious. With Mortmain and his clockwork army still threatening, the Council wants to strip Charlotte of her power and hand the running of the Enclave over to the unscrupulous and power-hungry Benedict Lightwood.

In the hope of saving Charlotte and the Institute, Will, Jem, and Tessa set out to unravel the secrets of Mortmain’s past—and discover unsettling Shadowhunter connections that hold the key not only to the enemy’s motivations, but also to the secret of Tessa’s identity. Tessa, already caught between the affections of Will and Jem, finds herself with another choice to make when she learns how the Shadowhunters helped make her a “monster.” Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain’s side? Where will her loyalties—and love—lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London…or end them forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • "Whether it's the overly tight corsets or the smell of dark magic that hangs in the air 'like sulfur mixed with the Thames on a hot day,' there's something about Victorian England that heightens tensions, both romantic and paranormal. In Clockwork Prince, the second installment in a prequel trilogy to the bestselling The Mortal Instruments series, Cassandra Clare demonstrates her relentless authorial alchemy, blending societal restraint and an otherworldly battle into a steamy steampunk drama."

    Los Angeles Times 

  • "Clare delivers in this trilogy second…Really very well done. Be sure to start with the first in the Infernal Devices trilogy, Clockwork Angel, to best enjoy this tale."

    RT Book Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Yoanna | 2/8/2014

    " Always choosing the tough couples, always! They're breaking my heart. The conversation between Will and Tess in the end was heartwrenching, but the one with Will and Jem after that was just awfully painful. And why my poor Herondales, why? Always with a broken heart and a smart mouth, protecting them. The parallels with TMI! Oh my. Can't wait for Clockwork Princess. Will deserves happiness... "

    " This book was very good, but not so much as the Mortal Instruments series. For some reason it was hard for me to get into and get through. I did like how well written it was and plan to read the next in the series. "

    " Good enough to keep me reading, but not as good as the first book - I found the love triangle tiresome. Jem is a problematic character for me - he's just too good to be interesting and illness isn't a satisfactory substitute for character complexity. "

    " HEARTBREAKING. need I say anything else? "
