3.0 out of 5 stars Clockwork Angel: Book Review, January 2, 2011
I am a hard reader to please.. this book was somewhat of a relief when I walked into the bookstore... no mention of vampires.. can it really be???
Well... there were a few vampires.. who played rather important roles, but they were just simply "villains".
The main character (Tessa) was very likable, but I feel like more could have been done to develop her character. I really love the historical/paranormal combo and the strong component of machines,and machine people makes this seem very steampunk. The plot... was OK. The beginning of the book was good and it seems like the writer spaced out the action enough to hold my attention, BUT the end.. is left unresolved so that the series can carry on.
*sigh*
I really liked the premise for this story it seemed much more original than average, but as I read on I found it more difficult to suspend belief, and it felt more and more like historicallyness (yes. it's a word.. maybe) was being lost :(.
Twas a good read, perhaps I shall read the next one..?
