Jay Lake – Mainspring

Posted by Dirk under: books .

1900 or so and America is still a colony of England and the world is clockwork.  Everybody knows this because you just have to look in the sky to see Earth’s brass orbital track.

A young clockmaker’s apprentice is visited by the Archangel Gabriel and told that the Earth’s mainspring is running down and it is his quest to find the Key Perilous and rewind the mainspring.

I liked it.
