Clockwork Prince Orders & More

There's been a lot of questions lately about Clockwork Prince, as they're a couple different copies of the book being released. Cassie has all the information posted on her site here, but we also wanted to help clear up some of the confusion.

ALL 1st edition copies of CP released in North America, UK/Ireland, Australia & NZ will include a formatted letter from Will to his family in the back of the book. Cassie said that's ALL 1st Editions, no matter where you buy it from. The 1st editions look like this:

If it does not have "Collector's First Edition" on it, than it's obviously not a first edition. Most likely many if not all the pre-orders will be for this one. Just make sure what you purchase has the exact over listed above.

The Barnes & Noble USA edition will have this + more. This edition will include what the 1st edition has PLUS an inscription from Will to Tessa in a copy of Tale of Two Cities. Once these sell out, they're gone. This is ONLY offered through Barns & Noble. Here's what it's cover looks like:

You can pre-order that HERE

Walmart will also be carrying their own special edition which will have Jem's story called Burning Bright. You can pre-order it HERE. *As far as I can tell, this is their edition, you may want to call them before placing your order, but that's all I could find on their site.

Please be sure to visit Cassie's site to find more. She mentions what will be included in the books in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK.


Books of Wonder in NYC is taking pre-orders for CP. These copies will be sent out the day of publication!! Be sure to call them at 212-989-3270 or email them at

Cassie has also said that ALL the SPECIAL CONTENT WILL BE POSTED ONLINE after an exclusivity period of between 3-6 months.

Clockwork Angel Read Along Day 8: Chapter 7 The Clockwork Girl

It's day 8 of our Clockwork Angel Read Along! Please be sure to visit our link here for our schedule, guidelines and to fill out the form to be entered to win some fabulous prizes. Feel free to answer any number of the questions asked. You don't need to answer all of them if you don't wish to.

Today we're discussing chapter 7. The truth is starting to be revealed. We learn that de Quincy, Mortmain and the Dark Sisters are indeed all working together. Somehow Tessa and her brother tie into what they're doing. We also learn de Quincy is building a lot of automatons, but we still don't know why.

* Sophie again makes a comment about her disgust for Will. It seems unlikely something happened between them since he's a Shadowhunter and she's a servant, but when I first read CA I wondered if he hadn't been the cause of something that happened to Sophie or maybe she just doesn't like guys who have a lot of confidence and act cocky. What are you thoughts on why she can't stand Will?

* The Shadowhunters have pieced together that de Quincy, Mortmain and the Dark Sisters are all working together and their horrifying findings at the Dark Sisters's house, along with the automation, Tessa's brother Nate and Tessa are connected. They're also assuming the Magister is de Quince, a powerful vampire. The only think left to find is the missing piece. What or who do you think that missing piece is? How do you think Tessa's brother Nate fits into all this? Could he have been a victim or do you think something else is going on with him?

* I'm borrowing Henry's question from page 163, "What could a vampire want with a lot of half mechanical people?" I agree with Henry, this isn't making any sense. What are your thoughts on what de Quincy is doing?

Waiting on Wednesday: EVERNEATH

Published by Harper Teen/ Balzar & Bray
To Be Released on January 3rd, 2012

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's... quoted from Brodi's site

Not only is the story line completely intriguing, check out the stunning cover! I am in love with it! I have this pretty little ARC sitting on my pile to read, but I'm trying to hold out in picking it up until it's a little bit closer to the release date. This seems like the type of book that would be hard not to talk about. I can't wait to dive into it to meet Nikki, Jack and Cole.

What book are you waiting on?
