Overview

A Most Unsuitable Couple!

Edwin McGillicuddy is a former vampire Enforcer, once the right-hand man to the most powerful vampire Lord on earth. Eliza McGillicuddy is a strong-willed human woman who spends her days fixing watches, and creating weapons, in her downtown Brooklyn watch shop. Their marriage is not only unlikely, but entirely unsuitable! And it's about to be tested.

In an alternate New York City run entirely on steam power and high technology, "nonhumans" like vampires and shapeshifters are struggling for civil rights, and the McGillicuddys are about to find themselves in the middle of a firestorm.

Enter Lord Foxley, Edwin's ex-master and maker. Fearful there is a murderer on the loose killing high-ranking vampire Lords and wiping out whole vampire Courts, he manipulates the couple into following the trail of a brilliant assassin. But it isn't long before the assassin discovers a new target-in Edwin and Eliza!

Even blood, sweat and gears won't get them out of this fix.

    So fun!

    Koehler's A Clockwork Vampire is part steampunk, part modern urban fantasy and part classic Agatha Christie-style mystery. This delicious blend of different is pure fun.

    Eliza McGillicuddy is an inventor by trade and a wife by choice. Her husband is a vampire with a clockwork heart and a dark secret that's about to knock on their door. He's the Heir and Enforcer to one of the most reclusive and dangerous vampires in the world, a master who wants him to come back and solve a series of vampire murders. Eliza has a few secrets herself, none of which makes facing a centuries old vampire lord any easier.

    Koehler's world building is stellar, her characters charming and complicated and her story outrageous fun. A Clockwork Vampire has a lot to offer readers who both love, but are tired of genre tropes, or those looking to expand their interests. I highly recommend it to paranormal fans and can't wait for the next book in the series.

    So awkwardly written

    Did anyone even bother editing this? And why would anyone name a character "I", except to torture the reader? Could there possibly be two more unlikable protagonists? Some of the minor characters were much more interesting but got very little "screen time" (Derek, Mouse). What is "rain pale hair" supposed to mean- the author seems to like the phrase so much she uses it twice to refer to a character, but never explains it. A character thinks she's fat from eating "Belgium chocolates". Seriously. Seems like you can take anything poorly written and slap some gears and steam on it and hope to rake in the cash.
