Waiting On Wednesday #2

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we highlight a book that we can't wait to be released.

This weeks WOW has to be Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare.
I really can't wait for this book to be released and it still feels like it's a long way off even if it is out in December!
I just want to read it now. I just hope it's as good as the first one.

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, though 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.


  1. I can't wait for this book to come out. There are so many things in the first book that weren;t answered, so I am eager to read Clockwork Prince :)

  2. Lol, this is my pick for today too! Great choice :)

  3. I'm sooooo jealous of everyone who has received an ARC of this. It sounds amazing and I can't wait to get sucked into the Shadowhunter world again. :)

    Great pick,
