A DREADFUL ROW

Marry on Monday for health,

Tuesday for wealth,

Wednesday the best day of all,

Thursday for crosses,

Friday for losses, and

Saturday for no luck at all.

—Folk rhyme

“December is a fortuitous time for a marriage,” said the seamstress, speaking around her mouthful of pins with the ease of years of practice. “As they say, ‘When December snows fall fast, marry, and true love will last.’ ” She placed a final pin in the gown and took a step back. “There. What do you think? It is modeled after one of Worth’s own designs.”

Tessa looked at her reflection in the pier glass in her bedroom. The dress was a deep gold silk, as was the custom for Shadowhunters, who believed white to be the color of mourning, and would not marry in it, despite Queen Victoria herself having set the fashion for doing just that. Duchesse lace edged the tightly fitted bodice and dripped from the sleeves.

“It’s lovely!” Charlotte clapped her hands together and leaned forward. Her brown eyes shone with delight. “Tessa, the color looks so fine on you.”

Tessa turned and twisted in front of the mirror. The gold put some much-needed color into her cheeks. The hourglass corset shaped and curved her everywhere it was supposed to, and the clockwork angel around her throat comforted her with its ticking. Below it dangled the jade pendant that Jem had given her. She had lengthened the chain so she could wear them both at once, not being willing to part with either. “You don’t think, perhaps, that the lace is a trifle too much adornment?”

“Not at all!” Charlotte sat back, one hand resting protectively, unconsciously, over her belly. She had always been too slim—skinny, in truth—to really need a corset, and now that she was going to have a child, she had taken to wearing tea gowns, in which she looked like a little bird. “It is your wedding day, Tessa. If there is ever an excuse for excessive adornment, it is that. Just imagine it.”

Tessa had spent many nights doing just that. She was not yet sure where she and Jem would be married, for the Council was still deliberating their situation. But when she imagined the wedding, it was always in a church, with her being marched down the aisle, perhaps on Henry’s arm, looking neither to the left or right but straight ahead at her betrothed, as a proper bride should. Jem would be wearing gear—not the sort one fought in, but specially designed, in the manner of a military uniform, for the occasion: black with bands of gold at the wrists, and gold runes picked out along the collar and placket.

He would look so young. They were both so young. Tessa knew it was unusual to marry at seventeen and eighteen, but they were racing a clock.

The clock of Jem’s life, before it wound down.

She put her hand to her throat, and felt the familiar vibration of her clockwork angel, its wings scratching her palm. The seamstress looked up at her anxiously. She was mundane, not Nephilim, but had the Sight, as all who served the Shadowhunters did. “Would you like the lace removed, miss?”

Before Tessa could answer, there was a knock at the door, and a familiar voice. “It’s Jem. Tessa, are you there?”

Charlotte sat bolt upright. “Oh! He mustn’t see you in your dress!”

Tessa stood dumbfounded. “Whyever not?”

“It’s a Shadowhunter custom—bad luck!” Charlotte rose to her feet. “Quickly! Hide behind the wardrobe!”

“The wardrobe? But—” Tessa broke off with a yelp as Charlotte seized her about the waist and frog-marched her behind the wardrobe like a policeman with a particularly resistant criminal. Released, Tessa dusted off her dress and made a face at Charlotte, and they both peeked around the side of the furniture as the seamstress, after a bewildered look, opened the door.

Jem’s silvery head appeared in the gap. He looked a bit disheveled, his jacket askew. He glanced around in puzzlement before his gaze lighted on Charlotte and Tessa, half-concealed behind the wardrobe. “Thank goodness,” he said. “I’d no idea where any of you had gone. Gabriel Lightwood’s downstairs, and he’s making the most dreadful row.”

“Write to them, Will,” said Cecily Herondale. “Please. Just one letter.”

Will tossed his sweat-soaked dark hair back and glared at her. “Get your feet into position,” was all he said. He pointed, with the tip of his dagger. “There, and there.”

Cecily sighed, and moved her feet. She had known she was out of position; she’d been doing in intentionally, to needle Will. It was easy to needle her brother. That much she remembered about him from when he was twelve years old. Even then daring him to do something, like climb the steeply pitched roof of their manor house, had resulted in the same thing: an angry blue flame in his eyes, a set jaw, and sometimes Will with a broken leg or arm at the end of it.

Of course this brother, the nearly adult Will, was not the brother she remembered from her childhood. He had grown both more explosive and more withdrawn. He had all their mother’s beauty, and all their father’s stubbornness—and, she feared, their father’s propensity for vices, though she had guessed that only from whispers among the occupants of the Institute.

“Raise your blade,” Will said. His voice was as cool and professional as her governess’s.

Cecily raised it. It had taken her some time to get used to the feel of gear against her skin: the loose tunic and trousers, the belt around her waist. Now she moved in it as comfortably as she had ever moved in the loosest nightgown. “I don’t understand why you won’t consider writing a letter. A single letter.”

“I don’t understand why you won’t consider going home,” Will said. “If you would just agree to return to Yorkshire yourself, you could stop worrying about our parents and I could arrange—”

Cecily interrupted him, having heard this speech a thousand times. “Would you consider a wager, Will?”

Cecily was both pleased and a little disappointed to see Will’s eyes spark, just the way her father’s always did when a gentleman’s bet was suggested. Men were so easy to predict.

“What sort of a wager?” Will took a step forward. He was wearing gear; Cecily could see the Marks that twined his wrists, the mnemosyne rune on his throat. It had taken her some time to see the Marks as something other than disfiguring, but she was used to them now—as she had grown used to the gear, to the great echoing halls of the Institute, and to its peculiar denizens.

She pointed at the wall in front of them. An ancient target had been painted on the wall in black: a bull’s-eye inside a larger circle. “If I hit the center of that three times, you have to write a letter to Dad and Mam and tell them how you are. You must tell them of the curse and why you left.”

Will’s face closed like a door, the way it always did when she made this request. But, “You’ll never hit it three times without missing, Cecy.”

“Well, then it should be no great concern to you to make the bet, William.” She used his full name purposefully. She knew it bothered him, coming from her, though when his best friend—no, his parabatai; she had learned since coming to the Institute that these were quite different things—Jem did it, Will seemed to take it as a term of affection. Possibly it was because he still had memories of her toddling after him on chubby legs, calling Will, Will, after him in breathless Welsh. She had never called him “William,” only ever “Will” or his Welsh name, Gwilym.

His eyes narrowed, those dark blue eyes the same color as her own. When their mother had said affectionately that Will would be a breaker of hearts when he was grown, Cecily had always looked at her dubiously. Will had been all arms and legs then, skinny and disheveled and always dirty. She could see it now, though, had seen it when she had first walked into the dining room of the Institute and he had stood up in astonishment, and she had thought: That can’t be Will.

He had turned those eyes on her, her mother’s eyes, and she had seen the anger in them. He had not been pleased to see her, not at all. And where in her memories there had been a skinny boy with a wild tangle of black hair like a Gypsy’s and leaves in his clothes, there was now this tall, frightening man instead. The words she had wanted to say had dissolved on her tongue, and she had matched him, glare for glare. And so it had been since, Will barely enduring her presence as if she were a stone in his shoe, a constant but minor annoyance.

Cecily took a deep breath, raised her chin, and prepared to throw the first knife. Will did not know, would never know, of the hours she had spent in this room, alone, practicing, learning to balance the weight of the knife in her hand, discovering that a good knife throw began from behind the body. She held both arms straight down and drew her right arm back, behind her head, before bringing it, and the weight of her body, forward. The tip of the knife was in line with the target. She released it and snapped her hand back, sucking in a gasp.

The knife stuck, point-down in the wall, exactly in the center of the target.

“One,” Cecily said, giving Will a superior smile.

He looked at her stonily, yanked the knife from the wal... --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Je ne suis pas une ado et pourtant j'ai lu les trois volumes de la série en quatre jours. Même si l'histoire n'est pas très "nouvelle", quoiqu'on peut en discuter, ça marche malgré et contre tout! L'écriture est fluide, les rebondissements sont presque sur chaque page, et la romance est à couper le souffle. La fin est merveilleuse. Un très très bon passe temps pour les romantiques.

Je me demande encore comment Cassy Clare arrive nous tenir en haleine de trilogie en prélogie et autre trilogie, je ne vois aucune faiblesse. J'ai aimé ce livre, cette fin et je regrette que la traduction française mette autant de temps à arriver à chaque fois car j'ai quelques adolescents qui trépignent.
La princesse mécanique est à la hauteur des autres livres, je peux même dire que c'est le meilleur des trois même si le second m'avait beaucoup plu. Je l'ai lu en anglais parce que je ne pouvais plus tenir mais j'ai hâte de le relire en français.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Series Conclusion 20 mars 2013
Par K. Sowa - Publié sur Amazon.com

***SPOILER FREE IF YOU'VE READ THE SERIES***

I was so afraid to start reading this book. Truth be told, The Infernal Devices is my favorite of the two series, although I still hold a lot of love for The Mortal Instruments. Something about the Victorian setting or Tessa, who I can relate to more than Clary, grabbed me from the first word. The first thing you should know is that you will have many, many questions answered in this book. Some of those questions carry over to TMI and then some bounce back again and won't be entirely answered until City of Heavenly Fire is released. (Those questions aren't integral to the story, so you can still read one series without having to read the other.) There was intense action and suspense, and I was so pleased at how much the women in this book stepped up and fought, both physically and emotionally. There were so many difficult situations and decisions that I'm not exactly sure how it all fit in to one final book, but it did, and brilliantly so. There were some incredibly touching scenes involving Magnus, who I felt like we got to know a lot better in this book. I loved the romances of some the side characters combined with the dry sense of humor that has defined this series. I laughed out loud just as many times as I reached for the tissue.

There will be some that won't be happy with the ending. The epilogue, which Clare already revealed pre-publication begins in 2008, seems to take place after the events of City of Heavenly Fire are resolved. I found that interesting since, of course, that book won't be released until 2014. The way the two series puzzle piece together is fascinating and it's almost as if we got an ending to both series, but without really knowing what happens. It was very cleverly done. Am I happy with the ending? Yes, I am. So many questions were answered and I felt that, as a reader, I got to see everyone's ending, for better or for worse. There were certainly parts that were profoundly sad, but I found it to be more of a deeply poignant sadness rather than a 'WHY, GOD, WHY??' type of sadness, if that makes sense. In any event, I am sad to say goodbye to the London Institute and I didn't realize how attached I had become to everyone until I read the very last page.

Oh, by the Angel . . .

Any of you who know me, know I've been both overly excited for this book but dreading it at the same time. We all knew something terrible was going to happen, right? But were unsure of many factors in to it. This book just. . .I had trouble getting in to it not because it was bad, oh no, because it was breaking my precious, delicate heart over and over again and I just couldn't bare it anymore. But then I knew I had to keep reading because I had to know the fate of my beloved Jem but also every single occupant of the London Institute. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with each of these individuals either throughout the series or in this book, alone. For being a complete and utter Jem fan, I still love and have much respect for Will Herondale. Unlike other love triangles, he is not one I would wish the worst upon, when in actuality, I did love him (just not as much as Jem).

When you think of series, you wish it to be epic and beautiful and perfect but how many times can you say that truly happens? I don't recall many where I'm left with my heart racing yet satisfied; however overwhelmed with emotions I may be. That happens with Clockwork Princess. I never thought I'd say I was happy with the outcome of this series because I thought for sure I'd walking around for days depressed over fictional characters who have become so important to me, they felt real.

The hardest part about this is not spoiling the book for anyone. That's the hardest thing about reviewing a final book in a series; what do you say that won't give away anything that happens? It's hard but I'm going to try my hardest to succeed.

One of the greatest things about this series (besides Jem, of course) is the relationship not only between Jem and Will but the relationship between Magnus & Will (oh yeah, I bet you thought I was going to say that love triangle, eh?). That relationship grew over Clockwork Prince and it reached new heights in Clockwork Princess. The fact that Will is the only Shadowhunter to ever treat Magnus as an equal; as a human was something to see. The way this effect Magnus was heartwarming and it is bound to put a smile on your face. The friendship is fierce and you know they will go to their last days remembering each other and for Magnus, that's saying something because he's rather old! ;)

Jem's illness takes a turn for the worst in this book and that was the absolute hardest thing for me to see. We all knew his days were numbered and knew he was bound to get worse but it's so different from knowing it and actually 'seeing' it. That was the toughest parts of the book; I just would have to put the book down and walk away any time he had an episode. I just couldn't bare to see him in that kind of distress. I know, I'm weird but when Jem happens to be your number all time favorite fictional character, there's a certain emotional attachment to him.

Mortmain is almost non-existent in the first part of the book and you almost forget that they're about to embark on this huge war with him but you're so engrossed in the romance in the novel. There's Gideon, who is absolutely precious, in his longing for maid-servant, Sophie Collins, when since he was introduced all you've wanted was their happiness. Obviously, there's Tessa with both her love's, Jem Carstairs, her fiance and Will, the love that cannot be. Henry and Charlotte Branwell, who are with child and some of the absolute cutest people, ever. Plus, there's the introduction of Cecily Herondale, Will's younger sister who is now staying with them to train to be a Shadowhunter and Gideon Lightwood's younger brother, Gabriel, who is forced to live at the London institute after his father's Demon Pox gets worse.

Every single character in this institute I fell in love with and I'm pretty sure you will, too. Yes, even Gabriel. Some times he's hard to read but he is a Lightwood, how could you not end up loving him?! You may find yourself even rooting for him toward the end and I bet it'll surprise you.

Tissues will most likely be needed or like me, you'll need to put the book and walk away before you lose it. But if you're in love with this series, like I am, you need to keep going and just wait for it to be over. I had trouble sleeping because I was just so overcome with many different emotions. It takes a lot for a book to keep me awake at night, after I've already finished it. I am also one of those fans who would prefer this series over The Mortal Instruments any day.

The Epilogue is so insanely perfect it hurts. While there's sadness there's also a new hope. Also, if you have the hardcover version, do NOT look at the family tree in the inside cover until after you have finished the series, you will spoil yourself.

Cassandra Clare, I may love you. In a totally, non-creepy way but this series is just perfect. For me, it goes up there with Harry Potter. It will be one I can read over and over again and still become a wreck each time. My heart will always belong to Jem and *sigh*

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clare does it again! 19 mars 2013
Par Rachael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Cassandra Clare has done it again. Clockwork Prince was absolutely stunning. It is far superior to the other books in the trilogy in almost every respect. I'd even say it's my favorite Cassandra Clare book so far.

Be warned, the family tree shows how the love triangle will be resolved. So if you don't want to know until the end, DON'T LOOK AT THE FAMILY TREE!!

As Tessa prepares for her wedding to Jem, darkness is closing in on the Shadowhunters of London. With the coming of demons linked to the Magister, his plans for the automaton army are almost complete. But he needs one last thing--Tessa. Tessa knows that the Magister is after her, but doesn't know how, when, or what can be done to stop him. Charlotte is set on finding the Magister first, and Jem and Will would do anything to keep Tessa safe.

When the Magister has all the drugs that Jem has to have to survive, Will feels it's his responsibility to get more drugs for Jem and to save Tessa from the danger coming after her. But Tessa learns her true origin and that she is capable of saving herself. The character progression of Tessa was phenomenal. I really enjoyed seeing the end of her character arc. She's such a relatable character. Even though I sometimes didn't agree with her choices, I always knew why she did what she did.

The characters in the Infernal Devices trilogy are some of my favorite as far as character development goes. Clockwork Princess continued the character progression and showed an even deeper side of the characters that we didn't get the chance to see before. Clare has a gift with writing strong characters that you connect with. No matter how minor, you feel like you personally know every character mentioned. The plot has so many unexpected twists and turns that had me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the very last second. I devoured this book in mere hours due to the excellent pacing, without a single dull moment.

After Clockwork Prince, I honestly had no idea how the trilogy would end. Whatever happened would be devastating to at least one character I love. There was no way this book could have a completely happy ending. But the ending was perfect, though bittersweet. It showed the importance of life, friendship, and love. Clockwork Princess is truly an amazing read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I have never in my life felt THIS cheated by a book before. 1 avril 2013
Par Jovana J - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Before I get slammed with negative responses, allow me to elaborate on my low rating and why I felt cheated by all of it.

HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD.

I gave both Clockwork Angel and Prince five stars each with raving reviews. I loved all the characters, the mythology, many creatures and well thought out love triangle that does NOT cheapen one side or the other. I waited ANXIOUSLY for Clockwork Princess and its conclusion. It KILLS me to say it, but I have never been more disappointed with an ending of a trilogy as I am now. THAT EPILOGUE was absolutely terrible and a total COPOUT.
Let me just say that I commend Clare for telling her audience that it's possible to have more than one love of your life. I think it's a realistic and optimistic way of looking at things because I cannot imagine being bound to ONE person forever, especially when that love is unrequited. But here comes the BIG BUT.
The text from all three books suggests different types of love. Tessa's love for Will is passionate, unpredictable, and real: the kind of love that makes you sleepless at night and shakes you to the core. Tessa's love for Jem felt more friendly, grateful, calm and secure. Many people judge Tessa for sleeping with Will after Jem's supposed death (extremely anticlimactic, predictable and not ONCE did I believe Jem was actually dead), but fail to realize that people do crazy, out of character things when they believe life has come to an end. I believed in their choices no matter how regretful they were later. Which is why Clare's push for romance and engagement between Jem and Tessa was so forced and unreal, I was scratching my head 90% of the time.

And then you have Jem. Young man dying, not actively looking for cure (it does exist - see epilogue) because he came to terms with his premature death, refusing to become a Silent Brother because without his music, love and bond with Will, he is no longer Jem. Music and being a prabatai was Jem's identity. When he made a choice to become a Silent Brother, I was pretty shocked because it was so out of character. Again, our priorities change when death comes knocking on the door. But nonetheless, Jem made a hard choice that would change the course of his existence forever. Was it tragic? Yes. But life is not perfect.

So what did Clare do to make me sad, disappointed and no longer a fan of her books? Text in the ENTIRE trilogy never suggested once that Tessa felt strong, passionate love for Jem. In book three...boom, they are in love! On top of that, after Jem becomes a Silent Brother, they make an arrangement to meet once a year on a bridge, behind Will's back. How interesting. Clare pushed the bond between the prabatai so hard in these books, almost stronger and more potent than any romance, and yet Jem chose to meet with Will's now wife INSTEAD of Will himself for years and years to come. If text actually convinced me in the "epic" Tessa/Jem love, MAYBE I would have bought their little deception. MAYBE. Those meetings must have been awkward, you know, since Silent Brothers don't talk and are forbidden from any human contact, but since it's Jem, (Clare's favorite,) there is a loophole of course. The whole thing made Jem and Tessa into disingenuous liars so thank you for that Clare. If my husband met his other girlfriend/companion/ex fiancé behind my back for entirety of our marriage...let's just say thing would NOT end so well.
So what happened when Will died? Tessa abandons the life she created with him, (pretty much forgets him completely) including all their children & grandchildren and moves on. Being an immortal female, I could understand her decision to some extent. She wanted a new life. But who did Clare chose to begin this new life with Tessa? Nobody else but the FORMER Silent Brother Jem, who is now conveniently young, healthy and single, just ready and still in love with Tessa and OH EM GEE no longer a Silent Brother (a LIFETIME vow of solitude - well not in Jem's case because Jem is sooooo speshul) making the whole concept of the Silent Brothers into a joke. Excuse me while I rage for a while. With this one MOVE, having Tessa get her cake AND eat it too, Clare took away the severity & consequences of EVERY choice made in this trilogy, cheapened Will and Tessa's love, cheapened the bond between prabatai Will and Jem and cheapened the concept of TRUE, DEEP LOVE in general. You can be attracted to many people at the same time, but you cannot experience TRUE, through good and bad, sickness and health, commitment and marriage type of LOVE with two people at the same time! Make a choice and stick with it no matter how HARD it is because that's REAL life, not this Disney ending copout Clare gave to Tessa. Just no.
