Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that
shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.
(Summary from Goodreads)

I LOVE CASSANDRA CLARE. She can do no wrong for me. I was absolutely bowled over with her first series, The Mortal Instruments, and was even more impressed with Clockwork Angel. She is a force of nature. I know this isn't out for a while, but I need to make sure that if you haven't read her first series, that you catch up before this one comes out. (I'm not so secretly hoping I get it an ARC at the ALA Conference)

Clockwork Prince comes out Dec. 6, 2011. YAY!


  1. Okay YES! Loved her first series and cannot wait for the second in her second to come out. Knowing how I devoured the first in a matter of three days I haven't read Clockwork Angel for fear of desperation for the second once I'm done. Looking forward to this so I can sink my teeth into another Cassandra Clare mindblower.

    GREAT pick!

    here's my WOW is you want to take a look :)

  2. Oh Yes, definitely on my waiting list, too :)

    Here is my WoW pick:

  3. This is my favourite series. I love Infernal Devices so much. Even more than the MI. I've waited so long for this book and it's still not out for what seems like forever. Great pick.

  4. I just took out the first book in this series from the library :) I'm excited to get started because I've heard so many good things about it!

  5. I've heard so many good things about Clockwork Angel. :) I just need to make the time to read it finally and then I can read Clockwork Prince! Here's hoping it's soon!

    Btw, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like Spellbound, but there are plenty of other books to choose from and future ones, too! :D That's what it's all about as a lover of books! And I'm an Old Follower. ;)

    Happy reading!

  6. You make me want to read stuff! :O
