Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The first thing readers will say after finishing this splendid book is: 'Wow.' The second thing will probably be: 'When can I read the next one?' Booklist on The Mechanical
Tregillis presents a fascinating look at the nature of free will and the existence of the soul, wrapped up in an absolutely thrilling adventure story. Jax is an amazing, sympathetic character, and the world of the clockmakers and their slaves is so absorbing that readers will be dying for the next entry in this new series. Library Journal on The Mechanical
Superb alternate history filled with clockwork men and ethical questions on the nature of free will. ... Tregillis's complex setting is elegantly delivered, and the rich characters and gripping story really make this tale soar. Publishers Weekly on The Mechanical
A major talent. George R.R. Martin on Bitter Seeds
“An exciting continuation of the battle…Told through the eyes of three returning characters, this volume fleshes out the conflict further and throws a new wrench in the mix. With the surprising final scene and somewhat abrupt ending, readers will be eager for the final installment.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

He was born and raised in Minnesota, where his parents had landed after fleeing the wrath of a Flemish prince (the full story, he’s told, involves a Dutch tramp steamer and a stolen horse). Nowadays he lives in New Mexico, where he consorts with writers, scientists, and other unsavory types.
