A good representation of steampunk. The Augmentation Society is creepy cool.

Exciting and cinematic, Look Homeward, Clockwork Angel was a blast to read.

This Steampunk novella (long for a novella but too short to be a novel I think) takes us on a fast-paced action adventure with a strong plot, woven together by a large (for the stories length) cast of characters. And in most areas the two authors, Elias Anderson and E.C. Belikov have pulled it off adeptly.

I am so psyched that this book was really good. It's the first random kindle freebie that I've been super excited about.

Apparently this is sort of a teaser to get you hooked on more books in the series, and if so then bravo. I deeply enjoyed all the characters, the settings, and the plot. For such a short book there was a ton of back story and easy character building.

Overall, the whole thing reminded me a little bit of the show 'Firefly' but mixed with steampunk. I haven't read a lot of steamp

I've never read any stories in the Steampunk genre before, but if this novella is any indication, I may have to search a few more good ones out. I really enjoyed this story. It read like a clockwork western. If this is the first book of a series, I'll most likely pick up the others when published. It was very entertaining, with characters I'd like to learn more about.

How the hell do I categorize this? Futuristic steampunk? That doesn't really make sense. Whatever. It wasn't good enough to give it its own shelf.

Pacing is good, characters fairly well-developed, plot utterly predictable.

If you like a steampunk adventure story in the vein of Jules Verne this might be for you. A fun read from start to finish.

ok for a steam punk novel. a little predictable and a little boring. not bad for a free book though. mine has a better cover than this picture

This apparently is a teaser to get you interested in the book(s) that are to follow with the same lead characters.

Hopefully, there will be more detail, character development, and plot to those.
