When the epilogue arrived, I was startled because it felt like the story was just getting started. This book seemed rushed as a result, especially since a lot of the conflict between the main characters is neatly fixed in a summing up manner by the epilogue. The story was very good, I just wish it had been longer. Truthfully, this plot had all the makings of a series if the author had chosen to go that route.

Such a lovely little book. The characters are very well made and you grow to like them quickly. A little too quickly. I feel like there was so much more of this plot to explore, so many roads left untraveled and questions unanswered. But, for what it is, this is a great one day read. I will be looking up more books by Ms.Dee For those who enjoy this book I would suggest the Gail Carriger series, The Parasol Protectorate. I see many similarities and enjoyed both Clockwork and the Parasol books greatly.

Excellent writing and a vivid storyline. I found Steampunk about a year ago and this is one of the best. Hopefully there will be more about this couple soon.

I'm a sucker for steampunk. What can I say? Like Clockwork is set in Victorian England during a time when automatons have begun to replace the lower cogs of the workforce, displacing them into poverty and creating a new set of problems. It's happened time and time again in history, and while some people might call that a cliche in a story, I think it gives credibility to the idea; a sense of this-could-really-happen. I was surprised from the beginning how exciting this book was. Like Clockwork is a novella, around 100 pages. Unlike other novellas, this one doesn't skimp on the elaborate plot. There are several facets to the story that I found myself wondering as the pages ticked down: how is all of this possibly going to be wrapped up? It's an engaging and exciting read. The characters, Victoria and Dash, feel natural and not tossed together for the sake of a mixed social romance. In a world pushing forward, why wouldn't it be the scientist woman that defies social standing for someone she sees potential in? I really enjoyed Like Clockwork; I'm only sad that it was over so quick and there isn't more. I want more!!
