    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION¿s Alluring Angel ¿ Kathy: --Act

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Alluring Angel – Kathy:
    --Actual rating 4.5 Skulls

    The Havoc Machine by Steven Harper is a steampunk gem. It is the 4th book in his The Clockwork Empire series, but is written in such
    a way that The Havoc Machine could be read as a stand alone.

    A plague has swept across the world, turning it’s victims into slowly dying plague zombies, with a few victims becoming mad geniuses
    referred to as clockworkers. Thaddeus Sharpe’s son is killed by a clockworker, and so he dedicated his life to finding and destroying
    clockworkers and their horrible creations. The Havoc Machine is a fast paced, action filled adventure with an unexpected amount of
    heartfelt emotion.

    I truly enjoyed The Havoc Machine.
