Overview

God of Clocks by Alan Campbell

In the cataclysm of the battle of the gods, a portal to Hell has been opened, releasing legions of unnatural creatures that have pushed humanity to the edge of extinction. While warring deities clash with fallen angels, the only hope for mankind’s survival lies with the most unlikely heroes: Former assassin Rachel Hael has rejoined blood-magician Mina Greene and her little dog, Basilis, on one last desperate mission to save the world from the ravages of Hell. As Rachel travels to the final confrontation she has both sought and feared, she begins to realize that time itself is unraveling. And so she must prepare herself for a sacrifice that may claim her heart, her life, her soul—and even then it may not be enough.

i had found the first book on a bench and when i read it i was amazed. i hadnt read anything so fantastic. when i heard the second book came i was thrilled i pre-ordered it. when i read that book i felt differently it somewhat lacked the passion the first book had but i still enjoyed it. then i read the third book was on its way and that it was the final one i pre-ordered it as well. when i read this one and finished the last page i was so very disappointed. the ending was definitely not what it could have been. i hope to my fullest extent that he write a fourth to actually finish the series a book that brings everything in the three books together. this is only my opinion. and i respect the artist scar night was my book. the best ive ever read. but the second and third were lacking in all of there potential.

In this novel, the tide turns with King Menoa and we discover he is the half brother to the other archons. He was favored by his mother and thus caused this large tension between them all. Menoa is deterined to reign and claim the earth for himself. With Heaven seeming unreachable; Rachel, Mina, Dill, and Hasp continue moving in search of the other gods and those resisting Menoa's rule. They learn more about the archinites and how this future unraveled. They unite with the God of Clocks to see time and explore this event all over again. Will Heaven open? Does Hasp survive? What happens to Dill? With John Anchor free what shall he do? Carnival is favored among Menoa what is next for her? I'll let you answer those on your own, I wouldn't want to spoil it. I highly recommend this novel.

The King of Hell Menoa appears on the brink of achieving what would have been universally thought of as impossible over the past eons. The god appears ready to take over Heaven and therefore the universe and recreate it in his image. Perhaps the only potential meaningful opposition comes from Menoa's half-brother Cospinol, but he has hurt his chances of usurping his sibling as he tries to boil out the life essence of mad angel Carnival. However, the fallen angel's former allies keep seeking a miracle as humanity as we know it will be extinct if they fail. Assassin Rachel, blood-mage Mina, demon-dog Basilis, sop god Hasp and the ghost Dill turn desperately to whom they believe is the last prayer Sabor the god of clocks who controls time. Menoa sends his invincible arconites to kill the last insurgency, but finally aware of the urgency of stopping his half brother is Cospinol, who sends his top aid to destroy the breach that will release a zombie horde; however, he may be too late. The exciting final tale of the Deepgate Codex fantasy (see SCAR NIGHT and IRON ANGEL) is a gruesome violent finish to a fine trilogy. The story line is fast-paced, filled with bloody action, and a sense of desperation. Adding to the overall feel of violence is none of the Gods care one iota about the lesser beings except as an energy source, which seems apropos for the war of the gods. Although the ending takes a plausible but Twilight Zone twist that supersedes too much history, fans of the saga will overall enjoy the GOD OF CLOCKS. Harriet Klausner
