The second novel set in the Clockwork Century universe. While not a direct sequel to Boneshaker, there is some overlap in characters and references so while reading the first book is not necessary by any stretch, you will probably get more out of the book by doing so.

Clementine is a shorter book, clocking in around 200 pages, and has much less of the world building and setting that Boneshaker did. The novel is a non-stop action story following Captain Croggon Beauregard Hainey, an escaped slave from the south trying to recover his stolen ship, and Maria Isabella Boyd, an ex-confederate spy now working for the Pinkerton agency hired to ensure that the stolen ship reaches its destination.

A short, enjoyable read. Not a whole lot of world building or development, but definitely action packed.
