Escapement – Jay Lake
couldn’t get into this. Gave it 200 hundred pages. Maybe it has
something to do with not reading the one that preceded this, but the
world the author created I just didn’t find compelling at all. Earth set
in Victorian times, but a huge wall at the equator separates the
northern and southern hemispheres, and a clockwork is visible in the
sky. Didn’t do it for me.
