Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly theme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a way for bloggers to show off what upcoming releases they're excited for.

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Publication Date: Dec. 6, 2011
Series: The Infernal Devices (#2)
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Goodreads, Amazon
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.
Okay, so I know that this is being released really soon compared to some other books I'm waiting for - is it 6 days away, now? - but I'm super excited for it! Clockwork Angel was really good, and I can't wait to see how things play out for Jem, Will, and Tessa. (I definitely know who I'm rooting for in the love triangle, too. :D)

  7. I am FAIL. I still haven't read Clockwork Angel, despite having owned it for, like, a year >.<

    Good pick. I think I must be the only person I know without this on their list... I'm just scared of CC's cliffhangers, so I don't want to read the new series till it's finished! Ha!

  8. You are definitely not alone. A lot of people are looking forward to this.

    My WOW

  9. I've never read any of Clare's books, but I LOVE the cover. The boy looks so unusual and exotic.

  10. Omg, who ISN'T waiting on Clockwork Prince! I preordered my copy through Amazon so I'll have to wait about an extra week AFTER the original release date to actually have it in my hands. Gah, it's so far away!

  11. Thanks for stopping by.
    Great choice, I can't wait for this book! I am running out first thing Tuesday morning to buy this even though I am also going to the book release party later that night, I am just dying to start it. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices are my favorite series. I can't wait to see what will happen next!

  12. Thanks for the comments, everybody! For those of you who haven't read Clockwork Angel, gooo do it. It's awesome. :)

  13. Haha I think the entire blogosphere is holding their breath in anticipation for this! Unfortunately I'm not a big fan of Cassie's books, but even I can't deny the excitement you guys have for this series strangely makes ME excited for release too! If that's not totally confusing LOL.

  14. I still have to read the first one! Hopefully I'll be able to next week. :)
    That reminds me that I still have to read City of Fallen Angels. ><
    5 more days!

  15. @Jill - Thank you! :)

    @BRodie - I know what you mean! The majority of Cassie's fans that I've seen are like crazily addicted, haha. :D

    @wornpagesanddustyshelves - I didn't enjoy City of Fallen Angels as much as the original trilogy, but I hope you end up enjoying it anyway! :)

  16. Can't wait for this book to come out! CA was so good, and I love Cassandra Clare's writing! So good! Hurry up near end of December!!! Happy reading!
