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.

True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart. Download and start listening now!


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

    " I can't remember when last I have been so swallowed up by a story line. Cassandra Clare manages to write such an enchanting story you have no choice but to love it; and hate yourself for all the tears shed! Brilliantly written, and wonderful narration. "

    " 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. "

    " Better than the first if that is even possible. Lots of action and romance. Lots of tension. I cried so many times for Will. I love that Clare does not make it obvious who Tessa will end up with. I think that in Twilight and City of Bones, it was really obvious who they were going to end up with. "
