I was overjoyed when I found a cheap print edition of Cherie Priest's Clementine on sale at Powell's. I don't own a Kindle, and I wasn't about to pay $75 on Amazon for a used copy of this novella. Having been a fan of hers since reading Boneshaker in 2009, I knew it was not essential reading in the series, and was, according to other fans, disappointingly short and underdeveloped. Both are true. After barely getting to know Captain Croggon Hainey and Belle Boyd for most of the book, the action is over within the last twenty pages. Luckily, I stumbled across the short story "Tanglefoot" a couple years ago, so I had some sense of the characters at Waverly Hills Sanitarium. Without that...well, I wouldn't recommend Clementine to anyone who wasn't already obsessed with Priest's Clockwork Century.
