Inhaltsangabe

Two o'clock was missing.

In an alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, a damaged clock can fracture time - and a destroyed one can stop it completely.

It's a truth that 17-year-old clock mechanic Danny Hart knows all too well; his father has been trapped in a Stopped town east of London for three years. Though Danny is a prodigy who can repair not only clockwork but the very fabric of time, his fixation with staging a rescue is quickly becoming a concern to his superiors. And so they assign him to Enfield, a town where the tower seems to be forever plagued with problems.

Danny's new apprentice both annoys and intrigues him, and though the boy is eager to work, he maintains a secretive distance. Danny soon discovers why: He is the tower's clock spirit, a mythical being that oversees Enfield's time. Though the boys are drawn together by their loneliness, Danny knows falling in love with a clock spirit is forbidden and means risking everything he's fought to achieve.

But when a series of bombings at nearby towers threaten to Stop more cities, Danny must race to prevent Enfield from becoming the next target, or he'll lose not only his father but the boy he loves - forever.

This is the stunning first novel in a new trilogy by debut author Tara Sim.

One of my top ten books of 2019 without question

Wonderful book with good twists that left my heart pounding, truly loveable and complex characters with original backstories, dry sarcastic good ol' English humor that made me smile as I worked, moments that made me squee with joy, and a voice that makes them come alive!
The book was recommended to me by a colleague, and I'm gonna dive right into the rest of the series!!!
I really love the setting - weird as it is, I didn't think I would get into it, but it's so unique and interesting. Not to mention well-enough built it makes my writer-heart happy, while leaving enough mystery to keep one intrigued.
If you're sick of simple and plain romance like me, and also wish more books were as heartaching as your favorite fanfiction, this is most definitely a book for you!
