Spending time in the Clockwork Century

February 25th, 2016 | Category: Life,Opinions

So, I spent much of today reading, which I don’t necessarily consider a “lazy” pursuit. I’m finally reading the entire Clockwork Century series by the Queen of Steampunk, Cherie Priest. I don’t know why I haven’t gotten around to it before now, I’ve been a fan of her work for years.

I actually read the first book in the series, Boneshaker, awhile ago, and was amazed. Reading Boneshaker feels very similar to reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy, both books have this sense of urgency about them. The characters are in a poisoned environment, always struggling to find the next safe place that isn’t very safe at all. The stories are totally different, but they share the same brilliant vibe. Cherie Priest is definitely skilled.

Anyway, I re-read Boneshaker, just for continuity, and now I’m ploughing through book two, Dreadnought. I think after I finish Dreadnought, I’ll write a full review of Boneshaker, then Dreadnought, and so on, until the end. Six books, six reviews.
