A Rogue Librarian's Reading List

{June 8, 2011}   Waiting on Wednesday: Clockwork Prince

Title: Clockwork Prince

Author: Cassandra Clare

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

Release date: December 6, 2011

Plot: The situation at the London Institute has never been more precarious. With Mortmain and his clockwork army still threatening, the Council wants to strip Charlotte of her power and hand the running of the Enclave over to the unscrupulous and power-hungry Benedict Lightwood. In the hope of saving Charlotte and the Institute, Will, Jem, and Tessa set out to unravel the secrets of Mortmain’s past—and discover unsettling Shadowhunter connections that hold the key not only to the enemy’s motivations, but also to the secret of Tessa’s identity. Tessa, already caught between the affections of Will and Jem, finds herself with another choice to make when she learns how the Shadowhunters helped make her a “monster.” Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain’s side? Where will her loyalties—and love—lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London…or end them forever. (Taken from Amazon.ca)

Why I’m waiting: I’m a real fan of steampunk and paranormal romance so this series, which is a good mix of both (with some really attractive boys thrown in), really appealed to me. I liked it better than Clare’s Mortal Instruments Series (which takes place in the same universe but in present time) and I’m looking forward to the second installment. In fact, I’m looking forward to it so much that I posed with the newly revealed cover at Book Expo America. ^_^

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. I plan to participate for the next year at least (because my to read pile really needs to be longer ;P). If you’d like to join in, grab a graphic, write a post and leave a link on her site.
