Overview: The Clockwork God

Socrates the steampunk ape is back in an all new series! The Iron Horse is a massive steam-powered locomotive full of ancient and surprising technological wonders. With his crew of warriors, miscreants, and genetic anomalies, Socrates’ mission is to scour the world in search of Starfall, the mysterious element that powers the great city of Sanctuary and most of the world’s steam technology. Supplies of Starfall are running low and unless they can locate another source, all civilization may soon collapse. Starfall also happens to be Socrates’ power source and without it, he will die. <br> <br>On their first adventure, the crew confronts a bizarre cult of isolationists and their strange “Clockwork God.” Meanwhile, several of the crewmembers have gone missing and tensions are rising as mutineers conspire to overthrow Socrates and destroy the train. As the conflict comes to a boil, a power more ancient and sinister than anything they have ever imagined threatens to destroy them all.

  1.  I read this one in one sitting- it was that good. 8 April, 2014 On
    I received a free copy of this book to read, but it has not affected my opinion of it. Just thought I would disclose that fact.

    The Clockwork God is a highly unique combination of sci-fi, fantasy, and adventure. Jamie Sedgewick has included all of the races generally seen in fantasy novels- Elves (though they are given a different name), humans, un-dead etc. However, Jamie has done something that I have never seen in any other fantasy novel: he explains how the different races came to be!

    River, the strong female lead character, is forced to go save her long time companion, Kale, after he and their fellow traveler, the halfling-like Micah fail to return from a hunting trip during their quest to find Starfall- a magical element with energizing properties needed to save their civilization. River comes across some very disturbing tracks that seem to have followed their companions into the woods. When River finds the terrified halfling-and the creatures who had persued them- she sets out (quickly) to rescue Kale from the castle in which Micah had said he and Kale were kept prisoner before Micahs escape. When she finds that she herself needs rescuing, their leader, Socrates comes to their aid.

    I loved Socrates, an automaton with the outward appearance of a rather large blue ape with the intelligence, patience, logic, and leadership ability to rival that of Dumbledore. Being one of the main characters, we get to know him- and his tragic yet heroic past- well.

    At heart this is a story about differing cultures, and the major problems which can come from the simplest of misunderstandings between them. It is very well written, and will have you on the edge of your seat after around page 20, and will keep you there until the end.

    I read this book in one sitting, as I was physically unable to put it down. Rarely are books able to hold my attention THAT well. I highly recommend The Clockwork God, and cannot wait to see what else Jamie Sedgewick has in store for us.
