Clementine (The Clockwork Century, #1.1) by Cherie Priest

Into the Wild

Read Clementine (The Clockwork Century, #1.1) Online Free - Maria Isabella Boyd’s success as a Confederate spy has made her too famous for further espionage work, and now her employment options are slim. Exiled, widowed, and on the brink of poverty…she reluctantly goes to work for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency in Chicago.

Adding insult to injury, her first big assignment is commissioned by the Union Army. In short, a federally sponsored transport dirigible is being violently pursued across the Rockies and Uncle Sam isn’t pleased. The Clementine is carrying a top secret load of military essentials—essentials which must be delivered to Louisville, Kentucky, without delay.

Intelligence suggests that the unrelenting pursuer is a runaway slave who’s been wanted by authorities on both sides of the Mason-Dixon for fifteen years. In that time, Captain Croggon Beauregard Hainey has felonied his way back and forth across the continent, leaving a trail of broken banks, stolen war machines, and illegally distributed weaponry from sea to shining sea.

And now it’s Maria’s job to go get him.

He’s dangerous quarry and she’s a dangerous woman, but when forces conspire against them both, they take a chance and form an alliance. She joins his crew, and he uses her connections. She follows his orders. He takes her advice.

And somebody, somewhere, is going to rue the day he crossed either one of them.

In an alternate America where the Civil War stretches on, a former Confederate spy turned Pinkerton agent and an escaped slave turned dirigible captain may be pursuing the man -- or are they both being tricked? This book could have been a lot better with an extra few dozen pages. The characters a...

Clementine is a slim book, a fun romp, but in some ways unsatisfying, and in others, a little...troublesome. Which is perhaps too much thought to put into a book that seems to be intended as brain candy and little more. But still, doubts remain. Can you really keep slavery as an aspect of life in...

What kind of book is this? Is it science fiction, alternate history, steampunk, or just madcap adventure? All of the above. Clementine is is part of the Clockwork Century series, and I admit I cheated and read these out of order, starting with this book. The storyline was a huge draw, honestly. I'm...

Clementine is a novel set in Cherie Priest's Clockwork Century world. It was entertaining but not as good as Dreadnought. Heck, it wasn't even as good as Boneshaker. Fortunately, it bears no connection to either of those novels and you can go ahead and skip it if you want to. I really like the pr...

On the surface, the action in this story was a little too easy and the plot very simple, but I enjoyed it! It was fun. I liked the characters, even if they were a little shallow. They had heart.

http://www.rantingdragon.com/clementi... Cherie Priest has been called the “High Priestess of Steampunk” for good reason. Her Clockwork Century world is a well-constructed alternate history version of 19th century North America. I reviewed Boneshaker recently, and was eager to read the next instal...

Well wasn't this just a rollicking good time? And honestly, I think that this is quite literally the ONLY time I have ever used the word "rollicking". But if there was ever a time and a place for the word, Clementine would be both. I can honestly say that I am kicking myself for not starting this...

Following the adventures of Croggon Beauregard Hainey, airship captain and thief from last year's fantastic Boneshaker, as he tries to recover his beloved airship from the hands of the pirate who swiped her. Of course being that things are never as easy as simply stealing back the ship he rightfu...

Boneshaker, Priest's first book of her Clock work Century series, set an awfully high standard. It used the background a steampunk-style Seattle overrun by noxious gas and zombies, all while the Civil War continues to ravage the rest of the United States well into the 1880s. Clementine takes plac...

Mon avis en Français My English review Ce roman est considéré en France comme étant le deuxième tome de la série Mécanique du Siècle et correspond à une nouvelle, placée entre le tome 1 et 2 à l’étranger. Ceci étant dit, je n’avais pas fait attention et j’ai été surprise par la faible épaisseur du...
