This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (release date December 6, 2011)
16-year-old orphan Tessa Gray, whose quiet life is thrown into turmoil when her older brother Nathaniel suddenly vanishes, leaving her alone. Her search for him leads her into Victorian-era London’s dangerous supernatural underworld, where warlocks throw masked balls for half-demon Downworlders. When Tessa discovers that she herself is a Downworlder, she must come to trust her natural enemies, the demon-killing Shadowhunters, if she ever wants to learn to control her powers and find her brother.I'm REALLY excited for this one, because I LOVED Clockwork Angel. I'd say I liked it better than the Mortal Instruments, but it isn't fair to compare one book to an entire series, so I'll wait for the whole series to be out before I start comparing.
Torn between the beautiful Will, a Shadowhunter who isn’t what he seems, and the devoted Jem, whose own deadly secret is slowly destroying him, Tessa must draw on all her strength to save her brother and keep herself alive in this deadly new world.
