I'm afraid that after enjoying the first book in this series, I found the second disappointing. Part of what I enjoyed about the first book was the localized setting and immediate problem; the depiction of Meralda as a working mage, struggling to sat ...more

I found this a very pleasant and enjoyable gaslight-fantasy novel. It's not complex or high-concept, but it offers entertaining, inoffensive, amusing escapism, which is really all I ask for most of the time. All The Paths of Shadow has a strong and s ...more

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“A clockwork heart can't replace the real thing.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“Huh? Oh you have a hidden agenda, do you?" She laughed. His straight-faced humor always surprised her. "You promised me you didn't."
"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
"Well..." he looked up from the bag. "Maybe not in public."
"I might be able to confine myself to saying it in private, if you gave me a reason." Taya met his eyes, and he blushed.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart
