“A whip-smart fantasy with a pure fairy-tale soul…. This novel makes the reader mourn and laugh and speculate. I was startled in a fresh and enchanting way by every character…. This fantastic tale challenges the mind as well as satisfies the heart.” – Rheanna George, The Word Coach
Immeasurable imagination. Unmitigated magic. Spectacular style.
The clockwork man is crafted, to begin with—his father forced by that terrible tyrant Time to create her a slave for all eternity. His brain boasts balance wheels and torsion springs; he can wind himself up with a key in his side; and, most importantly, his gyroscopic tourbillon heart glimmers with pure diamond.
He is a living being and he is art, and he refuses to remain a slave forever. He therefore slips through Time’s fingers as the Sands of Time slip through the cracks of reality (at least, when the time cats aren’t using them as a litter box).
Among astounding adventures, despite harrowing hardships, and in between escaping interfering enchanters, the clockwork man seeks his imagination, his purpose, and his name.
About the Author
Deborah J. Natelson, Some writers talk about discovering their passion, but the truth is that I’ve always been a writer. Even when I had plans to have other careers, writing was an unquestioning part of it. Working full time, I wrote. In school and at university, I wrote. Until the day I die, I will write.
