The Clockwork God (Aboard the Great Iron Horse Book 1)

Five Stars: “I read this book in one sitting, as I was physically unable to put it down… I highly recommend The Clockwork God, and cannot wait to see what else Jamie Sedgewick has in store for us.”-Goodreads Review
Four Stars: “An action packed, thrilling read; Very much a must for sci-fi and steampunk fans!”-Goodreads Review
Five Stars: “Can’t get enough of the stories by Jamie Sedgwick. This has been the best yet.”-Amazon Review

Mr. Sedgwick’s new steampunk series picks up where the Tinkerer’s Daughter Trilogy left off:

Barreling through their post-apocalyptic world in a massive steam locomotive called the Great Iron horse, the steam-powered ape Socrates and his crew of warriors, miscreants, and genetic anomalies are in search of a rare and precious element known as starfall. Starfall is the fuel that powers the Iron Horse, as well as the great city of Sanctuary. Supplies are running low and unless they can locate another source, all civilization may soon collapse. Starfall also happens to be the ape’s power source and without it, Socrates will die.

On their first adventure, Socrates, River, and the rest of the crew encounter a bizarre cult of isolationists and their strange “Clockwork God.” Meanwhile, several crew members have gone missing, and tensions are rising as mutineers conspire to overthrow Socrates and destroy the train. As the conflict comes to a boil, a power more ancient and sinister than anything they ever imagined threatens to destroy them all.

The “Iron Horse” series is a follow up to Sedgwick’s “The Tinkerer’s Daughter” series. A reading of the earlier books is not necessary to enjoy this new series, but may provide added insight to certain characters and history.

    Socrates the steampunk ape is back in an all-new series! The Iron Horse is a massive steam-powered locomotive full of ancient and surprising technological wonders. With his crew of warriors, miscreants, and genetic anomalies, Socrates’ mission is to scour the world in search of Starfall, the mysterious element that powers the great city of Sanctuary and most of the world’s steam technology. Supplies of Starfall are running low and unless they can locate another source, all civilization may soon collapse. Starfall also happens to be Socrates’ power source and without it, he will die.

    Found this book ‘Aboard the Great Iron Horse’ hard to ‘get into’ but once past the first few chapters I did start to enjoy. Reason I found so hard to get into was, I felt it started in the middle of a story . Felt there was very little introduction to the characters. So much so, I had to check online if it was the first in the series or middle.. its the first btw. I do have to say however, I love the title of the book, as straight away you know it is going to be set aboard a train.
    Eventually you do begin to care about Micah and Kale and their adventures against zombies, unwelcoming villagers whilst they search for provisions for the train.
    Although I did read the whole book, it didn’t make me a big fan of steampunk,. Unlike when I read my first dystopia novel! I found the names all rather confusing and took me a while to sort out who was actually who!
    It is definitely a good read if you like steampunk, or fancy something different, but I cant see myself investing in the whole series.

    I was asked by bookplex to give an honest and true opinion of the book

    Having already read the tinkerers daughter it was nice to read another book set in the same universe. One minor problem i had was the suggested rape of the female character River (who may be someone else unless that was a typo on a certain page) i personally can’t stand rape in any form in the stories i read but overall i liked many of the characters and the story itself. Worth the price.

    This book was a great read. I didn’t want to put it down! It’s got action, good guys, bad guys and intelligence. I’ve never read steam punk, but thoroughly enjoyed this series. Give it a try!
