Book Description

Carrus Vertigelli, a young aristocrat, enrolls in Scholar Society, the greatest academic establishment in the Hegemony. He joins the Clockworks department where tiny flying machines called speyes are built to act as scouts for Hegemony's legions. War brews and a mysterious new enemy appears without warning, devastating provinces on all sides of the Hegemony.
Carrus brings fresh ideas to Clockworks, overhauling the obsolete speye models, turning the tide of the war in Hegemony's favor. However, this also makes the enemy very interested in Clockworks and they soon bring their own devices to counter the Hegemony's speyes. A furious competition of predator and prey ensues as Clockworks employees struggle to keep up with the enemy's endless ways to disable their speyes.
Until the enemy decides to employ the most direct way of disabling the Clockworks department...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprise November 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this in paperback because I was interested in new Slovenian authors, and Clockworks Warrior, being in English and being steampunk (well, clockpunk actually) was good choice for read-and-pass-on. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
Story follows most Young Adult literature tropes of social outcast that proves himself to is peers through he novel, with a boy and a girl that befriend him, as well as brilliant but annoying colleague that everybody love to hate, old wise mentor and so on. There is also an evil force that threatens the world, our heroes help fighting it and so on and so on. It is far away from Harry Potter rip-off though. Besides lead, Carrus, other characters are typical placeholders for their roles, but that is not a big problem, for their number is kept small, so they differ enough, with a few supporting characters to keep the image of a larger society.

Writing and style is good, although it does have its rough and clumsy moments, but it reads well, without strain.

World of the novel is designed mostly on France, so it solved issue of weird fantasy names quite elegantly, giving reader additional connection with characters and their world.

Plot is simple, and it unwinds with good rhythm, all the way to the final showdown. Some actions and events are a bit naive, but they function well for the story purposes.

Altogether, I would say this is a solid YA novel, bringing a fresh breeze in genre that is, lately, overrun by vampires, werewolves and other fairy folk.
