Review on The Infernal Devices #2 Clockwork Prince

The search for the Magister continues, and after a fellow Shadowhunter, Benedict Lightwood insists that Charlotte is not good enough to run the institute, the Clave give her two weeks to find the location of the Magister, or have the institute fall into the hands of Benedict. The Shadowhunters are on a race against time to find the location of The Magister, but all is not as it seems, and they find out that they have a traitor under their very roof. Meanwhile, Will finds out the truth about what really happened during an event in his childhood, while Tessa grows closer to Jem, and finds herself torn between the two boys.

After reading the first book in this series I was hooked, and have to continue to find out what would happen next. In the first book, although I loved both Will and Jem, I always preferred Will, as I always seem to like the characters who seem tortured and act a bit of an ass because of not knowing how to deal with their problems. However, Jem's character has been developed further in Clockwork Prince, and I found myself loving this character just as much, if not more than Will, so I now feel Tessa's pain of not being able to choose between the two. Yes I am that person who falls in love with fictional characters and I regret nothing. Although the love triangle is a big plot point in this book, there was still enough action to stop it from being solely about the romance, and there are a couple of shocks along the way. I will definitely be reading the final installment of this series, as although Clockwork Prince revealed a lot about the characters, there are still some plot points that have yet been unsolved, and I can't wait to find out how this series ends.
