Summary

Love and lies can corrupt even the purest heart....

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, while 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.

As their search for the truth leads the three friends into peril, Tessa's heart is increasingly torn, especially when one of their own betrays them.

Female narrator not good.

Where does Clockwork Prince rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Story is good. But you can lose the thread of it when the female narrator is in charge.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The female narrator ruined the book for me. Her voice for the pure narration is fine but her interpretation of "posh" English accents was incredibly distracting and annoying. I only struggled through to the end because it is the second story in a trilogy and I checked that the narrator was different in the final book. Ed Westwick was excellent but sadly there was not enough of him.

Infernal Devices Book 3

I have really enjoyed all of the Cassandra Clare Books, starting with City of Bones several years ago. I have however much preferred the Infernal Devices series to the Mortal Instruments one. Somehow the characters seem more believable and well rounded, whether its because Ms Clares writing has become more mature over time or whether the characters themselves are more mature in this series, being set in the region of a century or so before Mortal Instruments, and there is a lot less of the modern teen angst I'm not sure, but the characters deal well with their love triangle and the story is beautifully told; I shed a tear at several points during the story. I have only 'read' this book in its audio format, and I was extremely impressed with the narrators of the last two books in the series, especially Ed Westwick who really brought out the emotion in the story. I just wish that these two narrators had read the first book in this series, the only one of the three that I have physically sat down to read in paper format, was spoiled for me by poor narration by Jennifer Ehle. I had expected much better of her narration skills after her performance of Elizabeth Bennet! However, this was a fantastic end to the trilogy and I was really sorry to say goodbye to a group of characters that I felt really close to and fond of. I would certainly recommend these books to lovers of paranormal fantasy fiction, and although it is aimed more at older teen readers, as a more mature reader I have found the story very satisfying.

clockwork prince another gem

The London institute, Charlotte tiny but so clever and strong, Will beautiful but troubled, Jem dying from a demon induced addiction and Miss Tessa Grey. Wow thankyou Cassandra Clare.

Excellent story, performance was mixed

I love Cassandra Clare’s books and coming back to them as audiobooks gives such an enjoyable, but different experience. This was no exception. However, i struggled with the performance, the male narration was enjoyable and engaging but I found the female narration quite jarring, especially the differences between accents, pronunciation and characterisation. Only a small thing and not a deal breaker - but did take me out of the immersion of the story on a few occasions

Romantic fantasy

A young adult fantasy with lots of tortured teenage romance. Not my usual listen, being far from my teenage years, but entertaining and a welcome break from my usual, bleak epic battle books. Performance very good.

fantastic

this book was a good one and it pains me to think that i will have to wait to buy the next one. also it makes me sad that there is only one more book left in this interesting series. it has made me enthusiastic about listening to the mortal instruments.

The story builds and builds

The story builds and builds throughout and the characters are fully fleshed out in an engaging way. The book is definitely a middle book with little offer of a conclusion to events and many questions unanswered. The performance wasnt the best and sometimes lacked effort and imagination towards the characters. All in all a very good read with i had time to read the book myself as the performance did let it down slightly

Cringeworthy narration

Love Cassandra Clare’s books, but I couldn’t finish this one thanks to the appalling female narrator. Are those English accents a joke? They were worse than Dick Van Dyke’s Cockney, and that’s saying something. An hour in, I couldn’t take it any more. As a Brit, I found it unbearable. I couldn’t concentrate on the words, I was cringing so hard. Please, don’t ever let her do this again! It’s sad really, because the male narrator was excellent, although his part was much smaller. I wish he had read it all. I shall have to buy the Kindle edition so I can finish the book. I hope to goodness the last book in the series is read by someone else.

Changing narrators

I really liked the book, it's just a real shame they changed the narrator as it really throws the story for me especially when they pronounce names/places etc differently! I've just seen that book three is narrated by yet another person so I'll see how that goes!

Love is messy.

Would you consider the audio edition of Clockwork Prince to be better than the print version?

I still prefer the print version of books, but Clockwork Prince was well narrated and enhances the reading of the print version.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Warlocks, demons, curses, angels and automatons and oh yeah, a love triangle and demon pox.

Any additional comments?

Demon Pox
