Despite myself reading this book incredibly late - and taking 3 weeks to read because of my busy schedule - I kept finding myself picking up this book in any way possible! And it's not often that we find a good book that have us yearn for that feeling - to know more, want more.I think The Clockwork Prince is Clare's best work to date, and probably my favorite so far. Clockwork Prince definitely was worth the wait between the release of the Clockwork Angel and when this book released back in November 2011. And for me, worth waiting for a good time to read it!The characters developed in this story have all stepped up one level of maturity - except one, and I was really shocked at how this character's story was emerging and developing to something really scandalous! Not only that - romance. You could get a sense of a love triangle happening in Clockwork Angel, but the sequel definitely has much more focus on it - which I loved. One other thing, Clare would switch the POV among the characters, I feel the need to say this - but It was very beautifully crafted especially with Sophie. I would recommend this book in a heart beat to anybody, but would also tell them they need to obviously need to read the first book in order to enjoy this one. Bring on Clockwork Princess, Clare!
