Book Review
Book Title: Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, Manga #2)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Illustrator: HyeKyung Baek

Review:
This manga does a great job of sticking close to the source material. I often find that rehashes of books/movies/television series often stray and try to do their own thing, but this adaption is pretty spot on.

This adaption also does a good job of developing characters in the picture print setting. I liked seeing the characters alongside the words that went with them. It added a bonus to the original source material. I would suggest that readers go for the original source material before this adaption, since it does not do perfect justice to the Clockwork Prince novel.

This was basically a shorter version of the books. There isn’t as much development and plot, but when you can only use pictures and have so many pages, there will be limitations. Don’t expect every aspect of the book to be in this manga, but do expect it to be an incredible adaption. Were there parts missing that I would have liked to see? Yes. Would I have gotten rid of anything that was put in this manga? No. It’s perfect the way it is.

I highly recommend this manga, even if you haven’t read the book. The artwork is great, the character development and plot is beautiful, and as far as adaptions go it has won my heart over.

Five out of five stars.
