Book Review: ‘Clockwork Angels’ by Kevin J. Anderson

Catching up on my Kevin J. Anderson reading, I finished his latest novel Clockwork Angels. First off, let me say that the quality of the binding on this hardcover is very nice and it includes some vivid illustrations of the scenery. That aside, the story was fun. It followed the adventures of a young man as he struggled between the machinations of the Watchmaker and his lust for perfection, and the chaotic schemes of the Anarchist who tried to destroy it all. Throw in a bit of steampunk and alchemy, and you get an interesting story that is geared for all ages. Click here to read our full review.
