Monday Book Recommendation: The Clockwork Century


The Clockwork Century is an alternate-history world setting created by Cherie Priest.

It is 1880. The American Civil War has raged for nearly two decades, driving technology in strange and terrible directions. Combat dirigibles skulk across the sky and armored vehicles crawl along the land. Military scientists twist the laws of man and nature, and barter their souls for weapons powered by light, fire, and steam.

But life struggles forward for soldiers and ordinary citizens. The fractured nation is dotted with stricken towns and epic scenes of devastation—some manmade, and some more mysterious. In the western territories cities are swallowed by gas and walled away to rot while the frontiers are strip-mined for resources. On the borders between North and South, spies scour and scheme, and smugglers build economies more stable than their governments.

This is the Clockwork Century. It is dark here, and different.

Do note there’s six books in total.

Oh man life has been so busy. I’ve barely been able to post on this blog for most of September and these last few days of October. NaNoWriMo is coming up in about 22 days. I’m working on the world building and trying to tie my idea in before November comes along.

During this time I managed to buy the second novel in the Endgame series: Sky Key. I’m so excited for this book but haven’t had time to read it. I haven’t had time to read at all.

My Bookstagram is suffering. I’ve got plenty of books to photograph and haven’t found the time yet. I also managed to find a clearance sale for the 4th and 5th books in The Clockwork Century series because they were selling for dirt cheap. Which means I still have to get the first three as well as the 6th.

*Tired sigh*

All in due time I guess.

  1. That’d explain why you’ve been missing from my feeds. We’ll wait! This sounds interesting. Have to say though if you hadn’t recommended them I’d have passed on after glancing at the covers. Haha.
