The Infernal Devices #3 Clockwork Princess

*sighs* This is a fitting end .... a good end a marvelous end *sighs* ......... oh why did it end...... Presenting The Infernal Devices #3 Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.

Here is the summary of the book:

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy. 

Tessa Gray should be happy - aren't all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.

Perfection. Utter Perfection. Cassandra Clare you are a genius. Truly exciting. Dramatic. Romantic. Tragic. A full circle completed......... oh! I'm so happy....yet still so sad. Everyone was here. Every character got to play a huge part in this stunning book and in a way every character got their own happy ending. Tessa, Jem, Will, Charlotte, Henry, Sophie, Gideon, Gabriel, Cecily, Magnus and every other character here.....simply brilliant. I'll try to keep it spoiler free (but feels kinda pointless since i'm reviewing it way later than when i read it but i'll try) but my track record squealing over these books has not been the cleanest so i'll try for those who have yet to read it.... no promises though... 

Only good things for this book. I say only good things because I didn't actually find anything bad at all.....and I never would. Honestly what do you expect...... It was PERFECT. You will laugh, you will bawl your eyes out, you will swoon, you will sit on the edge of your seat trying to predict the next course of action and you will simply marvel at the way Ms. Clare will handle things her way.

Perfection in every sense, Clare really developed her characters throughout the books. What they once were during Clockwork Angel or Clockwork Prince, they don't remain such. Some have grown, some have matured, some stayed the same but switched roles. The true sense of the term Parabatai is beautifully laid out here. Strong enough for Jem and Will to have switched roles than what they were in the previous books. 

Tessa also grew beautifully into her character, much more sure, much more braver. I'm rather envious (we all would be) of her. She gets not one but two true loves. We had been contemplating the everyday cliche for the trio.... but as another surprising twist, the author gives us a conclusion to the problem we may never have thought possible. The trio loved each other equally. Their moments together, simple gestures of love and trust, every stolen moments, those swoon-worthy glances and their all-pervasive love. That was what made them Tessa, Jem and Will.

And if that's not all, Clare finally unveils all the secrets she had been sneakily *wink* hiding from us. By the end of it all you finally get to appreciate why the characters some of those decisions they committed before and you gain a new found appreciation for them.

The final battle and the Epilogue. Graceful, deadly, and enlightening. Truths were revealed, rash decisions were made and some weird (in a good way) things happened and swear to God it was bloody brilliant. The Epilogue just couldn't have been more perfect. I cried..... yes I knew this series was over, and yes there are going to be other series in this world of Shadowhunters and Downworlders but you know what I mean. It connected all the loose ends..... I'm truly thankful to Cassandra Clare for creating such an amazing series that doesn't need any explanation whatsoever. Thank you Cassie brilliant you.......

(I'm very excited for the City of Bones movie....can't wait for it...... and I also heard that they were turning the Infernal Devices into movies as well...... OMG SO EXCITED)
