    Clockwork Lies: Iron Wind Comment

    1. 2.5 StarsClockwork Lies Iron Wind was a pretty big let down to me After the brilliant first book which combined steampunk, fantasy, and romance in a fresh and fun adventure, I had hoped for of the same in book two.The characters that underwent such great growth and depth in the first are shadows of their selves in this read Cristof is hardly a part of this book and Taya may as well not even have any wings There is little to no further character development and I found little to empathize with.T [...]


    2. 3.5 stars Clockwork Heart was the book that introduced me to the wonderful world of steampunk and remains one of my favourite books of all time, so I was both excited and extremely anxious when the author announced that the standalone novel will become a trilogy instead What if the sequels ruin my favourite characters What if they kick the bucket etc etc There was so much room for Taya, Cristof and the Ondinium universe to be fleshed out even , though, and with the right pacing it could have gro [...]


    3. This is the second book in the Clockwork Heart trilogy I really enjoyed this steampunk read, it was full of intrigue and adventure This was a good continuation of the story started in Clockwork Heart I love the characters and enjoy all the intrigue.I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was really well done The narrator has a higher pitched voice, which is always a bit surprising when I first start listening to these but I got used to it a few chapters into the book The narrator does [...]


    4. Many years ago 2008 I read _Clockwork Heart_ What I remember 1 The setting was surprisingly well considered, with economics and international politics playing into the background and ultimately into the storyline 2 The romance plot offered a shy nerdy blonde brother and a brooding dangerous dark brother the latter turned out to be a villain and the heroine wound up with the former 3 Clockwork computers and antigravity wing suits The flying suits and the computers both rely on the same plotdevici [...]


    5. Taya Icarus, the girl who can fly with the aid of her marvelous ondinium wings, is back in a second adventure, having emerged as the heroine of her own story in the first book of the trilogy, Clockwork Heart, marrying into the city s Exalted caste and advancing from being merely a messenger to being an ambassadorial representative for her husband, Exalted Cristof Forlore.This second chronicle of Taya s life is even rooted in the steampunk genre, with not just the great Analytic Engine that cont [...]


    6. it s been quite a few years since I read and greatly enjoyed book 1 and I was surprised when I saw that book 3 has been released this week in the USA, so of course I immediately got book 2 about which i had no idea it was out since March I remembered mostly what happened in Clockwork Heart which was quite a favorite for its great mix of romance, adventure and world building and took a fast look to it for completeness, while here in Clockwork Lies the novel just starts fast from page 1 and doesn [...]


    7. This book is almost as well written as the first however, the ending felt rushed and a little implausible She broke a couple of her own rules that she established in book one, which is always a let down, but it is an enjoyable read.


    8. A solid middle book for a trilogy The characters continue to grow and develop and the storyline follows that started in the first book and leads to the final book, but wraps up with a satisfying conclusion I really hate cliffhangers I don t think these could be read as stand alone books they are dependent enough on the previous book for background that I think the richness of the experience would be lost and the character development wouldn t mean as much I m really enjoying them.


    9. The first 30% of the book starts off slowly It really picks up around the 50% mark There s some decent character development that takes place however, the world building feels much less confident.Good enough that I have every intention of reading the final book in the series.


    10. This book is the continuation of Clockwork Heart which was published on 2008 Despite having a six year gap between the prequel and this sequel, I didn t notice any timeline discrepancies between the books and Clockwork Lies is enjoyable as a stand alone Steampunk Fantasy novel Since I didn t exactly wait six years for this book to happen as I only found the series from a book sale recently, I do think this book was worth the wait.Much like the last book, Taya Icarus was again involved in a polit [...]

    13. Taya and Cristof are married and the council in wondering what to do with them Since Taya is interested in the diplomatic corps, the Council decides that Cristoff would make a good ambassador Their first mission is to Mareaux where Cristoff survives a couple of assassination attempts It seems that someone is trying to get him out of the way.There is no shortage of potential enemies Alzana is casting a greedy eye on Ondinium s wealth Demicus is divided into clans and a number of them would be wil [...]


    14. Picking up from where Clockwork Heart leaves off, not just in terms of the political situation that is escalating, but also in the romance, Clockwork Lies depicts Taya s life after being designated Ondinium s ambassador and married to Cristof Cristof finally has a personality beyond grumpy outcast which includes having a sense of humour, which is pretty great, and the dynamic between him and Taya as a married couple is a delight to see Too many books end at the happy ever after and never depict [...]


    15. Unfortunately, this book was a much poorer outing than the first Where the first book was driven by both plot and character, the second book is almost entirely plot based, with very little time given to character development or world building The characters also read as slightly off from the first book Cristoff suddenly gets past every single one of his hangups about trust and relationships and has apparently come 100% to terms with his past He is also shockingly docile when it comes to dressing [...]


    16. As much as I loved the first book in the series, was how much I was equally bored with this book really, seriously bored, and only finished it because I had purchased it on Kindle, and was halfway through it already The opening sequences in Mareux aren t too bad, but Taya and Cristof have no chemisty in this book Mostly the author tells us how much they love each other, and Cristof flops around helplessly in his new Exalted restrictions, and Taya acts like his nanny The mystery wasn t very engag [...]


    17. It s been six years, but Taya, Cristof and Alister are back in Clockwork Lies Iron Wind, a sequel to Dru Pagliassotti s Clockwork Heart You ll really need to read that previous book to get the most out of Clockwork Lies Iron Wind and this review will have spoilers for that first book, so proceed with caution.Alister was blinded and exiled after his treasonous deeds in Clockwork Heart His brother Cristof, who was happy just being a clockmaker, has reluctantly taken Alister s place as an Exalted H [...]


    18. You must read the first book in the series for this one to make sense Fortunately I re read Clockwork Heart when I knew this one finally was published The book is very political, yet the byplay between Taya and Cristof really elevates the book beyond the normal political thriller If she was a bicycle messenger and he a programmer or Maker Faire devotee this would be categorized as a normal political thriller I wonder if the much serious tone of this book will turn off fans of the light hearted [...]


    19. In this sequel to Clockwork Heart, things move along at a much faster pace, and many action sequences are incorporated into the narrative As the paperback was consistently unavailable via , I listened to audible version and thoroughly enjoyed it The world building and political intrigues were much fleshed out in this second book of the trilogy, and the focus on the ambassadorial trio made the plot easier to follow and made me care much about the fate of the Forlore household and of their Lich [...]


    20. It s been a little too long since I read the first book, so some of the details I m missing might be due to that But I suspect this is suffering from middle book syndrome, where not a lot happens, because it s a set up for the big event of the final book There s some backstory on the different kingdoms and the culture, and far too little of Taya actually getting to be an Icarus, as opposed to walking and serving as a politician s wife Still, interesting enough to keep me going for the next book. [...]


    21. I really enjoyed this book though not quite as much as the first in the series Parts were very exciting but other parts seemed to drag a little Also, I missed all the secondary characters Other than Amcathra, there were not that many other characters that had significant page time I would not recommend this book to someone who has not read Clockwork Heart as it really draws on what happened in the first book and the world building and explanations are not really repeated here I really do love th [...]


    22. The problem with this book had to do with the six years between first book and this one I could barely remember any of the side characters and it was a struggle remembering the intricate details of the world building.But the book was great fun and I enjoyed it all Even if I miss the bickering between Taya and Cris now that they re married.


    23. Loved this book as much as the first Lighter on the romance but you could see the love the main characters had for each other and heavy on the intrigue and world building I find the steampunk world building very interesting and often got distracted trying to imagine what is being described Can t wait for the 3rd book


    24. I like the partnership of Taya and Kristof even in this second book looking forward to the next in the series.



    25. I really enjoyed the pacing of this book Like the first book, Clockwork Heart, this book starts with adventure.
