Happy 2012 everyone!! I can’t believe it’s already a new year! And since December is over, that means it’s again time to pick my favorite book from the month! Best of the Bunch is a fun monthly meme started at Lyrical Reviews, and if you're interested in participating, you can learn more here.
So, my Best of the Bunch pick for December is…..
By Cassandra Clare
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends. With the help of handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. 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 is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets, and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.
I actually didn’t read as much as I expected in December, but Clockwork Prince was the clear favorite. This is one of those books that I’m not going to review on From A to Z, for a variety of reasons, but I do love this series and Clockwork Prince was a fantastic sequel to Clockwork Angel. I still don’t know whether I’m Team Will or Team Jem (I just love them both!) and now I’m dying for the final book. A whole year to wait! Eep.
