    Story

    For more than two centuries, the land of Albion has been ruled by the supposedly benevolent Watchmaker, who imposes precision on every aspect of life. Young Owen Hardy from the village of Barrel Arbor dreams of seeing the big city and the breathtaking Clockwork Angels that dispense wisdom to the people, maybe even catching a glimpse of the Watchmaker himself. He watches the steamliners drift by, powered by alchemical energy, as they head toward Crown City....

    What made the experience of listening to Clockwork Angels the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed listening to the person who actually had the original idea actually perform the final work.


    What other book might you compare Clockwork Angels to and why?

    This is the first book I've read in the steampunk genre, so there's not much that I can compare it directly to. But, it is similar to "The Odyssey" - as the main character is traveling and getting into fantastic journeys.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scenes where Owen is investigating the Seven Cities of Gold - reminiscent of my backpacking travels in the Southwest (America) looking at the Anasazi ruins.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "All the journeys of this great adventure ... it didn't always feel that way"


    Any additional comments?

    It makes the album so much more meaningful when you read the book - you get some additional meaning from the songs.
