Rezension | Clockwork Princess von Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Princess (Die Chroniken der Schattenjäger, #3) - Cassandra Clare

Beschreibung

 

Bald sollen die Hochzeitsglocken für Tessa Gray läuten. Anstatt die Vorfreude auf dieses Ereignis genießen zu können, werden die Londoner Schattenjäger jedoch von Mortmains riesiger Armee aus Klockwerk-Kreaturen auf Trab gehalten. Die Schattenjägergemeinschaft ist sich über die Führungsqualitäten von Charlotte Branwall als Leiterin des Londoner Instituts nicht sicher und ihrer Warnung bezüglich Mortmains Aktivitäten wird nicht die nötige Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. Als schließlich das Schlüsselstück zur Vollendung von Mortmains schrecklichen Plan in dessen Hände fällt, ist es an Will das schlimmste zu verhindern.

 

Meine Meinung

 

Mit “Clockwork Princess” findet Cassandra Clares phantastische Young Adult Reihe um “Die Chroniken der Schattenjäger” ihren Abschluss. Wie gewohnt knüpft der Band an die Ereignisse des vorhergehenden Romans an, jedoch lädt Cassandra Clare zuerst auf einen Blick in die Vergangenheit ein. So erfährt man wie Jem als kleiner Junge ins Institut kam und mit Will Freundschaft schloss.

 

Beim vorherigen Titel “Clockwork Prince” vermisste ich weitere Informationen und größeren Einbezug der namengebenden Klockwerk-Kreaturen, deshalb hat es mir sehr gut gefallen, dass die Autorin hierfür endlich etwas mehr Platz einräumt. Ein weiterhin großer Teil der Geschichte ist für die Dreiecksbeziehung Jem-Will-Tessa reserviert. Mittlerweile habe ich mich an diese Beziehungskonstellation gewöhnt und habe einfach mit allen Charakteren mitgefiebert und mitgelitten. Immerhin haben auch noch andere schöne Pärchenbildungen ihren Auftritt wie z. B. Gideon und Sophie. Am meisten hat micht mal wieder Cassandra Clares Kunst, ihren Figuren eine beeindruckende Entwicklungsbahn zu schaffen, begeistert. Dies ging sogar so weit, dass ein bisher ungeliebter Charakter immer mehr Symphatiepunkte sammelte bis ich ihn sogar mochte!

 

Der Erzählstil hat, wie bereits in den vorherigen zwei Bänden, sehr gut zum Handlungszeitraum gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts gepasst. Dieses Mal hat Cassandra Clare dem ganzen allerdings noch mehr Authentizität verliehen, in dem sie mehrere briefliche Konversationen z. B. zwischen Charlotte und dem Konsul in das Buch mit einfließen lässt.

 

Cassandra Clare ist mit “Clockwork Princess” ein in sich stimmiger Abschlussband der Chroniken der Schattenjäger gelungen der keine Fragen mehr offen lässt und ein richtiges Hollywood Happy End liefert. Der Epilog führt die Geschichte der Hauptprotagonistin Tessa noch etwas tiefgehender aus und setzt dem ganzen die Krone auf. Manches geriet dabei jedoch eine Spur zu kitschig und übertrieben, daher von mir gute 4 von 5 Grinsekatzen.

 

Fazit

 

Ein explosives Finale der Schattenjäger Chroniken!

The Bronze Key (Magisterium, Book 3) - Holly Black,Cassandra Clare

The more I read this series, the more I love it. Each book is my new favorite. 

As with the second book, this is a fast-paced adventure book filled with mystery and suspense (as well as snarky Jasper <3 ). I find Call less annoying as the series goes on as well. In the first book, I couldn't stand him, but he has grown on me and I really like all of the weird character conflicts going on. 

There is a bit of a love triangle in this one, which I am never a fan of, but there are so many other things going on in the story, that it is easy to overlook it. It's a pretty minor element of the story. 

I am so disappointed that my library does not have the fourth book in audiobook format yet as I have been listening to this series while driving for work. But I will definitely read the physical book at some point soon. After all, that ending...

The Copper Gauntlet: Magisterium Book 2 (The Magisterium) - Holly Black,Cassandra Clare,Paul Boehmer

I enjoyed this book more than the first one in the series. The first one wasn't bad, it was just a bit slow to start. This one moves a bit quicker because there isn't as much of that pesky world-building stuff going on. I really enjoyed this one.

Well-written. Some things were predictable, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Great character development. I enjoyed the characters' changing roles (especially Jasper's). And as always, Havoc is adorable. 

Awesome fantasy adventure story. I have already requested the next book in the series from the library. I can't wait to read it.

My two latest buys, do you know how excited I am to finally have my hands on Origins!! I bought it for my dad in hardback for Christmas and was very tempted to keep hold till I had read it first, but I was a good daughter. Plus Waterstones had it half price!!

 

So I've never read any of Cassandra Clares books.....honestly I don't know why, they've neem on my TBR list since the list began. I am kinda glad I waited thought seeing as I stumbled across this gorgeous cover set.

The Iron Trial - Cassandra Clare,Holly Black

Are there similarities between this and the Harry Potter series? Yes. Is it still a unique and entertaining read? Definitely. 

While the story and characters share some traits with Harry Potter, there is tons of new stuff going on and each character is dealing with their own unique struggles. So yes, it's a wizarding school featuring a team of two males and one female with a stuck-up, slightly charismatic male as a school nemesis, but I promise this is not just a Harry Potter rip off. So much different stuff going on. 

I picked this up from the library because I have become obsessed with Holly Black's writing lately and was intrigued by the cover. I'll admit, the book starts out kind of slow. I didn't really like Call's character (plus, it took me forever to realize his name was "Call" and not "Cole", darn audiobooks- the whole time I couldn't figure out how "Cole" was short for "Callum"). He's a bit irritating and clueless. He grows on your a little bit, but I mostly stuck around for Aaron and Tamara. 

But the whole world-building. I loved all of the descriptions of the school itself and the various rooms. So cool. All of the magic stuff was fascinating. I liked the idea of magic coming from the elements and the apprentices learning to control them without wands or potions. 

The plot was a bit slow to start, but in my opinion, it was worth it for the twist at the end. You know something was coming, but I never would have guessed it was that. Great twist that really pulls the reader in.

I definitely want to continue the series. Just requested the next audiobook from the library.
