Rimsa: “In the Clockwork Prince trailer, why did tessa grab the fire...– The Clockwork Prince full-length trailer is kind of an interesting thing because of the way it was constructed. Back when Ed Westwick was narrating City of Fallen Angels, I heard some of the clips of him recording in the studio and off course all his off-recording comments were in his native accent....

Clockwork Prince review (no spoilers) catreadsbooks: Because it is bitter – Infernal Devices Style In one week the second novel of Cassandra Clare’s The Infernal Devices will be released in bookshops and readers have to prepare themselves for some heartache.

Jem fanart →
Jem fanart. Well, I did say I wanted fanart of this idea … :) theherondaleboys: onlywayd: For the record, I absolutely love Jem and don’t believe he has a bad bone in his body. I won’t believe that he is in any way evil until I read it (and even then, I may be in denial for a long time!). But I just couldn’t resist! Inspired by this post: … lol - I love this!
youmaycallmesteff asked: I have noticed a pattern in your books. The first book is freaking awesome. The second is incredibly heartbreaking (*coughs CP). The third brings the house down. Do you enjoy making us giddy on the first, breaking our hearts in the second, and making us wish there were more on the third?
and-tomorrow-never-came asked: When is the Clockwork Prince Trailer coming out? :)
amyhead asked: Hi :) I absolutely love Clockwork Angel (I'm trying to read A Tale of Two Cities now - it's going slowly but I just think 'if Tessa could do it, I can do it'). Anyways, I've read alot of stuff about Twilight New Moon being a lot like Romeo and Juliet, and I was just wondering: do you ever get people telling you The Infernal Devices is a little like A Tale of Two Cities?...
valemcr asked: Dear Cassie, I've been lucky enough to get an international edition early and I just want to let you know that I almost cried when I read the conversation between Will and Jem on Chapter 11 of the Clockwork Prince. I've some questions to ask but I'll post them after I've read the whole book. Love, Valentina x
herondaledagger asked: I have an odd question. At the very beginning of Clockwork Angel, Will turns around to find that Jem is no longer behind him, and eventually, he finds Jem covered in Emma Bayliss's blood, and carrying the knife that killed her. I find it suspicious, like, he had a hand on her death and maybe other things as well. Was it meant to be suspicious? I can't imagine Jem being bad, but I also...

Today I'm thankful for my readers . . .#andateaser →
…for helping put Clary, Iz and Tessa at the top of the Tournament of Heroines with badasses like Katniss. In honor of which, a teaser line from City of Lost Souls. If you don’t want teasers, don’t read on… ——————————- “Kill me, little sister. Kill me and you kill Jace, too.”
I yammer about Clockwork Prince. Actually my favorite part of this video is the photos I took of Yorkshire for the parts of the book that are set there. 13 days!

This really is one of the funnier movie questions I’ve been asked.
31 Days of CP Day 17: One Line Teasers
mundiemoms: TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY!!! I can’t believe we’re at the final two weeks until Clockwork Prince is out. YAY!!!! It’s day 17 of our 31 Days of Clockwork Prince. Here’s today one line teaser- She watched him go, telling herself it meant nothing, that he was no worse than he had been, that he still had time.
Will, Jem and Tessa and . . . snow
Aha. Picture of Jem, Will and Tessa making a snowman found. Thank you, @aliceaspegren mylifeasrebekah:
iwouldificouldbuticantsoishant- asked: I just finished City of Fallen Angels. I had my heart ripped out and torn to shreds. It was unimaginable, horrible, and disastrous. I know this is a lot to ask for, but just affirm that there WILL be a happy ending somewhere in sight!
For you, and for any dear to you, I would do anything. If my career were of that...– Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities. A little morning Sydney Carton.
wearedust-and-shadows asked: I just wanted to thank you for Clockwork Prince :) It really is the most beautiful, sad, cruel, romantic book I've ever read ! I went from crying to laughing and from totally excited to completely shocked within minutes. I hope that someday I'll be half as good a writer as you are :)
dragonmother asked: Just want to say how brilliant your reply to the 'Alec backlash' question was. I know this isn't really a question, but just a big virtual 'thank you' from me. I'm 15, a boy, and gay. I realized my sexuality within the last two years, and it was a big thing to accept about myself. Finding your books and getting to go through some of the same things as Alec has just...
tmispanishnews asked: Thanks for answering the other questions :) I have a new question from another reader: Why we never get to know what Sebastian thinks? In CoG we never get to know why he gets angry when Clary sometimes 'rejects' him, or when she reject him when he kisses her. Why is he doing this? Or when he talks to Valentine and says: "I had a lot of fun cheating on her. I can't wait for her...
tristinawright asked: Since the titles are all released of the remaining books, does that mean the manuscripts are finished too?

And a little teaser passage from the book as well. :)
Will and Pansies?
You’ll understand when you read it. It’s not quite as strange as it sounds. :) [As a side note, in the language of flowers, “a pansy left by a lover for his beloved means “I am thinking of our forbidden love.”] ithuriels: thehellishdimensions: I think we needa zoom in….. Yep, i see him too. LOL

Important Writerly Discussions, Volume One
The Mortal Instruments never broke me as much as Clockwork Prince did :/ —@CarinaOlsen Me: People seem grieved by some things that happen in Clockwork Prince. I know that it must be so, and yet I feel bad. Holly Black: Look, you deliberately set out to write a book that would reach into people’s chests, rip out their hearts, turn their hearts to ice, melt the ice, pour it into a martini glass...
