Now here’s a high-concept idea: a novel based on the new album by Rush, the popular rock band. Writer Anderson and Peart, Rush’s drummer and lyricist, have been friends for more than two decades. Anderson takes the themes of Rush’s songs and turns them into a very entertaining, elegantly written story of a boy on the cusp of manhood, living in a seemingly perfect society (thanks to “our loving Watchmaker,” who controls, well, everything). The boy discovers that some dark truths lurk just beneath his world’s perfect surface. Firmly planted in the steampunk subgenre, the book tells an epic-scale story, following young Owen Hardy as he leaves the village of his birth, travels to the legendary Crown City, and gets caught up in an adventure that shows him a world he never knew existed. Syme, who’s designed album covers for many bands, including Rush, contributes several beautiful illustrations that capture the dark undercurrent of Anderson’s story. This is a fine piece of dystopian fiction, and it will appeal to readers young and old. --David Pitt

The only reason it is predictable is because if follows the Rush album. I love Kevin J. Anderson's writing.Published 1 month ago by Eric A. Horner

This book is really poor, which is surprising coming from an accomplished writer. I know Anderson can write as I've read some of his other books but Clockwork Angels dissappoints. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Al Sithee
