I really like this book and this comes from a person that doesn't read alot. This is my very first 400 pg book that i read. I am not a person that likes to read and im very picky about what i read but this book got me hook since the beginning. Ilove the characters from this book and i really liked that the main character is gay. I really liked this book from the beginning to the end. Looking foward to read the following books.

Beautiful romantic story of a clock mechanic falling in love with the spirit of his clock tower. Great pacing with sweet romance and heart pounding action and insurgent. It is hard to find good speculative fiction with gay main characters and Timekeeper is an excellent example of how it is done! Can't wait for the rest of this series.

This is brand new world-building and concepts, which are so so soooo rare these days!

And for anyone who loves Diana Wynne Jones, GIVE TARA SIM A TRY!!
