Book Description

3 Jan 2013 Clockwork Century 3 (Book 3)

Josephine Early, New Orleans brothel owner and Union spy, has a mission. And it might just end the Civil War. She must deliver Ganymede, an astonishing prototype submarine, to the North. But the giant war machine is at the bottom of a lake, no one has safely piloted it and she must sneak its huge bulk past enemy forces.

Luckily, she knows the right man for the job. She hasn’t seen former lover and air-pirate Andan Cly for years, but has a sweet job to tempt him back. He agrees to help, but his primary mission is to retrieve supplies for blighted Seattle, where noxious gas has forced residents underground and undead rotters menace the city.

Although legit, the Seattle run makes Cly uncomfortable. He no longer flies sap, disapproving of the drug’s ugly side-effects, and the job is funded with sap money. Josephine’s jaunt could be a great distraction. But will they make history, or end up at the bottom of the ocean?

'Priest is at the top of her game ... the best yet’ Publishers Weekly, ‘Ganymede centres on intrigue and espionage’,, ‘Alternative history storytelling at its finest’

5.0 out of 5 stars This was a corker! - Had to put my goggles on! 10 April 2014
I decided to read Boneshaker, the first book in the series, because I like steampunk and wasn't sure at first as, for me, it wasn't set in Victorian England. Anyway, it didn't matter, I really enjoyed it! All that gas and zombies. Anyway, I got Dreadnaught and Ganymede together. I don't write reviews normally but Ganymede is superb. By now you've got to know a fair few of the characters and the link to real history is a masterstroke. The way the book is written really pulls you in and the ending (I'm not giving it away) does the buildup credit. well done Cherie, your books are super. I'm ordering book five right now.

1.0 out of 5 stars My favourite so far 17 Feb 2014
I feel like Priest has really settled into the tone she wants for this series. I enjoyed Boneshaker enough to read to continue but I'd say that both Dreadnought and Ganymede are much easier to get into.

I've given this book a lower rating not because the book wasn't good, but because I feel that those responsible for the marketing of this edition have to be held accountable for the calculated whitewashing. Whitewashing is a form of racism that is rampant within all forms of media. It was someone's very calculated decision to change the blurb to not include mention of Josephine race, as well as use a photo of a woman who is racially ambiguous at best but could easily be read as white. This is harmful, offensive and does a disservice to Priest; who has clearly made an effort to utilise Steampunk’s capacity for challenging popular historical narrative by actually including people usually left out of the history books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series 10 April 2013
By simon211175 VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read this series right from the start (Boneshaker (Clockwork Century 1) - go read it now if you haven't already), I was keen to get this one.

The Clockwork Century books are steampunk adventures focusing on the American Civil War, but with the added presence of zombies. However, so far in the series the zombies take more of a back seat, as something people have either gotten used to (in the Seattle-based books), or something that takes more of a back seat to the main war-based goings-on.

Personally, I'm enjoying this series. The books can be a bit slow sometimes, and each one can be read as a standalone book if you really wanted to. I found Ganymede to be one of the better books in the series, it kept a good pace and the characters were interesting enough to hold my attention.

I'd recommend this book, and all the others in the series - I'm off to catch the next one (The Inexplicables) where no doubt I'll see you shortly.

Excellent book in this series. Read the previous two volumes, plus the Celementine side story and thouroughly enjoyed it. Excellent concept, idea, and storyline, would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone interested in Steampunk, Zombies, and american civil war period.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great 20 Jan 2013
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Steampunk seems to be a genre that grows more popular with every release and as s reader I love to suspend belief and dive headlong into a work of mechanisation clockwork. Yet whilst I've read way more than I've enjoyed if a title's blurb more than grabs me, whether I've enjoyed an author before or not, I can't resist the lure to travel to this wonderfully inventive genre.

Whilst I wasn't the biggest fan of Boneshaker as I couldn't really get on with one of the protagonists, this book did do a reasonable enough job of keeping me engaged and while I do love a story that brings zombies alongside it, the book really doesn't add anything that I've not seen before as a lot of the elements within the set up failed to live up to the twists that I was expecting within. All round whilst it is a solid enough title, I want something that pushes the boundaries, something that deliver a hell of a ride that doesn't leave me wondering how long I've been reading and whilst this has been a pleasant enough diversion, it's not one that's going to stay with me that long. All round a great shame.
