I think this will be one of my few shorts reviews. Because I could say more but I think less is better.
Plot: The plot pretty much follows as the other books have. There is lots of action and fighting with the shadow hunters. They made grave designs that affect their future. But in the end, the reader in suck in straight into the book and you can not get out.
Friendship/Love: This area is explore a whole lot more and boy do I love it. I can not even begin to tell you how much I loved these parts. You get the see the character for who they really are with out the fighting and drama. Their hearts are so genuine in what they want to do for each other and man, that is true friendship.
Ending: Let me take a deep breathe to gather my emotions here. There is only one other book where I can think of the ending and I swear my heart beats fast and I’m filed with love. You can add this book to that list. The last chapter at the end captured me so emotionally that I giggled my excited in the first page, fell in love and smiled, then cried. I have not read such an amazing ending that leaves me speechless. This one did. I think I read the chapter about 4 to 5 times to only relive what I just read. Pure awesomeness.
Give this book a try. Heck, just stop what you are doing and read the entire series. It’s so awesome, you won’t forget. Trust me. Clockwork Princess is a truly gorgeously written story that you need to read. It surpasses all my expectations and leaves my heart filled with emotions. This is why I read people. To find gems like this one. Go read it. GO!
I give it 5 BITES!
P.S. I know I said this review will be short but I guess I had more to say. LOL.
