In a word: disappointing! I jumped straight from Boneshaker to this, hoping to get to learn more about--or at least hear the survival rates!--of the characters I'd so grown to love from the first book. However, aside from one minor character in Boneshaker becoming a main player in Clementine, and a few throwaway references to, what, one or two other minor characters? It's an all new playing field in more ways than one. Not exactly what I was hoping for. Aside from that, the story felt plodding in spots, somewhat padded, and a little pat. (Some pieces of information revealed themselves a little too conveniently: where you'd normally expect the main characters to have to work to figure things out, the answers were practically--really almost literally, sometimes--falling into their laps.) I have some trepidation about continuing with the Clockwork Century series, but we'll see.
