Read in April, 2008

Well written steampunk/alternate Earth tale with some overtones of theology. I particularly loved the idea of Earth-as-clockwork-planet, complete with a visible brass (or something) track visible in the skies above. The main character, however, was a little bland, seeming more a vessel for events to happen *to* rather than having much of a spine in his own right.
