This book (the clockwork three) is the best book I think I've ever read, all the characters and descriptive writing made everything sound and feel so real. Also it's a book a blend action and everything and I enjoyed this book more and more just as I turned the page.

I definitely agree with most of the positive comments already left. This is an incredible first book with believable and likable main characters and how all there stories slowly in whine like perfect gears in CLOCKWORK, immoral villains, and a touch of magic that ties everything together. Great read, would defiantly recommend to others.

This was a pretty good book. I did not like the parts about golems so much and nearing the end at the part where all the glass windows shatter in the church was a little odd, but I enjoyed the end very much.

Probably one of the best books I have read. There should definitely be a sequel for the book.

I hope the rumours of a sequel are true

Dividing his narrative between three different characters, the book has more action, adventure, heart, music, good food, natural beauty, and strange underworld dealings than you could ever hope to find. From proto-robots to golems and séances, it also manages to be packed with exciting elements without ever feeling overdone.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Dec 08, 2012

Three kids discover three different secrets that may change their lives forever. In a seaside city where rich and poor are sharply divided, Giuseppe the Italian street busker discovers a green violin that may be the secret to his escape from this dirty old city back to his home across the ocean. Hannah, in turn, discovers in the hotel where she works to support her ailing father and family, that one of its old residents once had a treasure, long since lost. And Frederick, the clockworker’s apprentice discovers the existence of a mechanical head that may be just what he needs to complete the mechanical body he’s been building in secret. Slowly but surely the needs and wants of these three characters begin to intertwine, until it becomes clear that none of them will get what they desire unless they take a chance and trust one another, come what may.
