“I was in an accident. I got out. I’m safe now.” An alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, where a damaged clock can fracture time–and a destroyed one can stop it completely.

A prodigy mechanic who can repair not only clockwork, but time itself, determined to rescue his father from a Stopped town.

A series of mysterious bombings that could jeopardize all of England.

A boy who would give anything to relive his past, and one who would give anything to live at all.

A romance that will shake the very foundations of time.

The first book in a dazzling new steampunk-fantasy trilogy, Timekeeper introduces a magical world of mythology and innovation that readers will never want to leave.

What I thought

Okay, I am going to be completely honest I really am surprised by how much I really enjoyed this book.  I was sold on the concept of book 2 (Chainbreaker) when everyone was talking about.  I was on the fence when this book came out on whether or not I should read it and I can not express to you how surprised I am that I loved it so much. I had this book on the 10 books that I wanted to read this year list partly because I need to read this one to get to the next one in the series. But after starting this book I really did not want to put it down.

This book is set in a steampunk world and clocks control the world. lol. They are not taking over but everything runs on time and if a clock stops well them that town does too because time is not moving on. I really do enjoy steampunk books and I loved how this concept was done. I also enjoyed the romance that was in this book. It was very sweet and not over the top. I am really excited to move on in this series.
