Tessa gets some assistance with her corset in new CLOCKWORK PRINCESS snippet

Clockwork Princess

You gotta love an impromptu CLOCKWORK PRINCESS (due out March 19) snippet from Cassandra Clare.

Clare shared a snippet late Wednesday night in which an unknown “he” helps Tessa with her corset. “Victorian corsets really did lace in the BACK not the front,” she wrote for emphasis.

Check out the snippet:

Tessa couldn’t help herself; despite everything, she giggled. “It laces,” she whispered. “In the back,” and she guided his hands around her until his fingers were on the strings of the corset. She shivered then, and not from cold, but from the intimacy of the gesture. 

Only 47 days to go until we are holding CLOCKWORK PRINCESS in our hands.

What did you think of the snippet? Do you think it’s Jem? Or could it possibly be Will? Sound off in the comments!

  1. I think it’s Jem.
    Tessa would be too ashamed of herself if it was Will. Wouldn’t giggle :(
    Wish it was Will
    Hope it’s Will

    • Yeah, but the “shiver at the intimacy” part, she wouldn’t really think that with Jem. “Despite everything,” unless there is something wrong with Jem or something that wouldn’t be written. “Tessa couldn’t help herself,” I think it’s Will, but it could be Jem.

  2. Tessa wouldn’t “shiver from the intimacy” of something like that unless it was with someone she wasn’t supposed to be intimate with (AKA WILL)! She could blush or whatever, but after that scene on Jem’s bedroom, lacing a corset doesn’t seem like something she would be ashamed of, plus, they’re engaged! I guess we won’t know for sure until March… ugh I really hope it’s Will

  3. Okay so “he” (PLEASE BE WILL) seems to have been handsy in her front and thats why she guides his hands to the back… right? I’m wrong aren’t I? But ‘despite everything’…WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE SOMETHING UNTHINKABLE HAPPENED AND SHE CAN’T BE HAPPY? Cassie why do you do this to me? Why did I read city of bones? I blame it all on that book, it started everything tbh. brb dying from feels.

  4. i think and hope it’s will! i mean we all know that will and tessa are passionately in love with each other which includes desire. will loves her and wants her in every way. mind, body and soul.

    • Not neccesarily… If Will really loves Tessa, like Jace for example, he would then be completely disarmed and get extremely nervous… Though, honestly the “he” in question could go either way… Gosh, If the wait doesn’t kill me first for the book (which just got a lot closer to doing just now) the book certainly will!

  5. Well I dont no but I think it could be jem I kinda hope its will but I think he would no wot to do with a corset but then again he does luv her alot n I dont no just hurry up march :)

  6. It has to be Jem, Will’s hands would not need guidance!! Besides, Will would have said something funny or confessed his undying love or something.

  7. How about it being the wedding night? I mean she’s giggling and guiding his hands to where her corset opens… It’s possible
    Or it could be a completely different moment, where something had happened (well it kinda says that in the snippet that something happened) and there was noone else around to undo her corset. A lady can’t stay in a corset 24/7 after all.
