I've only ever read a couple of steampunk novels, but I'm finding myself totally falling in love with the genre and The Clockwork Bluebird has just made me fall deeper. I've always been a fan of slightly dark fairytales and this reminds me of those that used to take me away to far away lands as a child.
Whether you're a child or an adult, you're going to fall for this story - there's no doubt about it :)

So! Here we go with a review of two very differing opinions.
Apparently, this is based off of a fairy tale. I've never heard of it or read it. I don't think I missed anything by it, but now I'm intrigued. SistaPITA felt like she missed a big piece of the puzzle by not having read the story this book was based off of. Personally, I didn't feel as though there was anything I missed. I felt as though I caught the feel of the background, the history, the world. I really enjoyed the premise. It felt original to me.
I also really liked the characters. Okay. Okay. So they weren't the strongest characters ever, but the entire world isn't full of heroically strong people either. I enjoy reading stories about people I can relate to. I'm not saying I'd be all damsel-in-distress all the time, but it was nice to read about a little girl who really was a little girl and who didn't have all the answers all the time. In that, SistaPITA and I agreed.
I really enjoyed the pacing. It was a wild adventure to go from one place to the next, discovering all sorts of things and places. SistaPITA would have liked to sit and really discover each location. It wasn't until her and I were discussing the book (Okay. So, she was talking and I was glaring. That's how our conversations work. No. Really.) that I realized that, yeah, we really didn't spend a lot of time in each location. While I was reading it, I didn't care, but after she mentioned that, I was like, "Huh, it would have been cool to spend a bit more time in each location."
All in all, I found this to be a great book. SistaPITA found it to be a good story. We both agreed we'd read it again. So, I gave it five stars. She gave it three. Between the two of us, we're giving the book four. *grin* Great job!
I LOVED the clockwork characters and wish I had my very own Bread!
Sorry everyone, but no spoilers from me (as always). But I will say this, if the cover doesn't grab you (and I don't see how that would even be possible)then the blurb will.
Amazing job Ravven! Can not wait until book 2!
