Recommended for: Anyone open to new books & who likes an adventure

I liked this book a lot. It is definitely up there as one of my favourite types of easy read. The plot is random and I really like George Dower and his butler. It kept me turning the pages and I was disappointed when it was over.

The story is about George Dower who has inherited his father’s business but not his skill. There are quite a lot of twists and turns to the plot so you are kept guessing. His father was skilled in building all manner of clockwork devices and these skills had been utilised by a number of strange sources. There are half fish people, and anti-society and a bunch of do-gooders all hot on George’s tale. The book follows George as he tumbles from one disaster to another.

I think if you have read and liked any George Mann books, Angelmaker or the Blue book of the glass dream eater books you will probably enjoy this. I would recommend it to anyone who is open to new book ideas.
