Publisher's 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.

very enticing

The switching off narrators was peculiar ESP considering the was no thread, link to the story, characters, of book layout etc to anticipate or understand why they chose 2 narrators

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

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.

Switching between narrators didn't work

... especially when Heather Linda's performance wasn't great. The plot felt like it was marking time until the 3rd instalment. Still fun though

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.

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.

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.

Ed Westwick is excellent as the voice of Will Harrendale and the story is compelling at times.

Just sit back and enjoy

I love this book and I am delighted to say that this audiobook increased my enjoyment 10 fold. The actors voicing the characters make you fall in love with them a little more. The story is engaging and exciting, and if you don’t tear up at least a few times, you must have a heart of stone. Can’t wait to listen to the next one!

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.
