At first when I saw this was only 4 pages I thought it might be a prologue for a longer story, but it turns out to be a 1000 word short story challenge. From this standpoint, the author did very well to get a lot of information into a short word count and still have it flow well. My only misgivings are the way fae magic and Alchemy are presented as related and the unneeded mention of werewolves and vampires which play no part in the story. Otherwise, the description of the clockwork laboratory was done well and could have been the opening to a mystery story worth reading.
If you like weird stories that peripherally explore clockwork devices and the fae, this is for you. If you want a story with well-developed characters and a plot, it's not.
Only 12 pages on my Nook, but creates a grimly magical clockwork mystery.
This is a fun story worth a read
