Clementine, like all of Cherie Priest's Clockwork Century, is engaging, told in a plot appropriate voice and just plain wonderful to listen too. I regret that this one is not also available to read as the myriad characters (even the dirigibles attain character status with Ms. Priest's fine storytelling ability), her zombie infested revisionist history and the subtle morality make this series infinitely re-digestible.
This series is to the literary mythopedia what Gaiman's "American Gods" is to the global pantheon of gods and demons. Book four is stronger if darker than book three in the series and "listens" like a story truly sprung from the original story tree. More than a homage, it is a reweaving of unraveled bits of the best loved pieces of fantasy and science fiction into an all age appropriate tapestry of adventure which is narrated here by the perfect voice. James Langdon manages to make the story even more than its print perfection with his reading of it.
