Cleverly constructed, like the dollhouse of the title, Jordan Elizabeth’s Clockwork Dollhouse is a short, haunting tale of corrupted power in a steampunk world. Blending classic who-done-it mystery with the misadventures of the Governor’s somewhat rebellious teenage niece, the story contains all the right elements; strange machines, political power, and deceptive innocence all coming together in an ending that manages to surprise, even as readers might almost feel they know the answer. It’s a smooth, fascinating read, cleverly Victorian, mysterious, mechanical, and with just the right touch of magic in the telling.

Disclosure: I was given an ecopy and I really enjoyed it.
