The Clockwork Dagger - Beth Cato (steampunk is cool)

#1 in the series
steampunk (historical + fantasy)
the story sounded pretty cool and badass
"Enter the world of
The Clockwork Dagger:
Airships, espionage, magic
and a world tree who most definitely plays favorites."
the story was fascinating
both the characters and the world
made it easy for me to stay interested in what was going on
especially little details about the world
delighted me again and again
however something about the writing style
made it hard for me to get into a good reading flow
it was easy for other things to distract me
while reading this story
I also didn't feel as much as I wanted to
the romance wasn't my favourite
so yeah, I have mixed feelings about this book
fans of steampunk might love it
I'm not sure if I will be going on with the series.

PS: Please ignore the ugly sticker on the cover
I couldn't remove it
without destroying the book
stickers are evil!


  1. Hmm, I do like steampunk but I don't know if I could read a novel where the romance plot line didn't work for me...this one's a maybe.

    Stickers are SO evil! They should be banned from book stores.

    1. I will never understand why publishers / book sellers think that stickers on covers are a good idea, they never are.

      Happy Reading!

  2. I don't like stickers on the book. They are always a pain to take off, so I understand your pain. I hope you love all of your new books.

    1. Dito, stickers are evil and I hate them!
