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.
