I've been a big fan of Cherie Priest's "Clockwork Century" Series of books and was eagerly anticipating this next chapter. The nice thing about this series is that each book takes place in a different place with a different cast of characters, while still keeping the thread of the story interconnecting them all. This is a refreshing change from most series. This book however she goes back to the roots of the series, setting it once again in the walled up city of Seattle. And while again told from another characters point of view, you do run into the characters from the other books, and here is where the book seems to lose some steam. I'm not sure since the secondary characters were meted out in other books the author felt they didn't need more than a passing mention or quick interaction, but since you're already invested in these characters, from their stories in other books, these interactions seem empty and almost lacking. You find yourself arguing that these characters would not be doing what is described here, but would rather step forward to do more. I don't know. Another issue is with the titled "Inexplicable's" . Were they really necessary? The story line involving them added really nothing to the main plot line, and felt like filler. Then there's the whole reality of them? I know you have to have a suspension of a certain amount of belief, while reading sci-fi, but while all the other characters, (yes even the rotters), seem to have some basis in reality, the inexplicables don't seem to fit. It's like watching a movie...say Gone with the Wind, and then the director decides to add a talking fish. It just doesn't fit. Oh well. They are actually a rather small subplot, so much so I'm not sure how they ended up getting the title. Anyway this was probably my least favorite of the Clockwork Century series, still enjoyable just uneven when compared to the previous stories. I will continue reading the series, because there is so much potential with it.

Good to see a continuation of the series, but this one was treading water.

I love this world Priest created. It's fast action, and it brings back the original characters. The only thing I was was different was that it was longer.
