A romance that will shake the very foundations of time.
I think I’m a steampunk fan – I’ve read several steampunk books and enjoyed all of them, and I adored the Victorian London setting in this novel.
The whole premise of clocks controlling time tantalized me, and I connected with Danny almost immediately. I know clocks and cogs aren’t for everyone, but the fact that Danny could ‘feel’ time and diagnose a clock’s problem fascinated me. His relationship with Colton was very sweet, although a bit on the ‘insta-love’ side, but I chose to overlook that.
Timekeeper had been in my TBR for a while, and when the theme for one of my book clubs was an LGBT novel, I immediately thought of this one. A perfect selection, and one I’d recommend.
