God of Clocks by Alan Campbell

The gates to Hell have been opened, releasing unnatural creatures and threatening to turn the world into a killing field.  In the middle, caught between warring gods and fallen angels, humanity finds itself pushed to the brink of extinction.  Its only hope is the most unlikely of heroes…

Former assassin Rachel Hael has rejoined the blood-magician Mina Greene and her devious little dog Basilis on one last desperate mission to save the world from the grip of Hell.  Carried in the jaw of a debased angel, they rush to the final defensive stronghold of the god of clocks – pursued all the while by the twelve arconites, the great iron-and-bone automatons controlled by King Menoa, the lord of the maze.

But the strange fortress of the god of clocks is unlike anything they could ever have expected.  And now old enemies and new allies join in a battle whose outcome could end them all…

Peer & Press Reviews

… God of Clocks is another very entertaining book in a very entertaining fantasy series, one I would recommend just for its incredibile creativity.

Robert Thompson, Fantasy Book Critic

It’s a blisteringly good read, baroquely imagined, and full of high-concept ideas.  If it were ever to transform to the wide screen, you would need a director that combined Peter Jackson’s scale with Terry Gilliam’s surrealism…  Finishing God Of Clocks I was left in the delicious dilemma of wanting Campbell to write more about his invented world or just invent a wholly new one instead.

Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday

Campbell has achieved many impressive feats here beyond merely seeing through his publishing obligations in a timely fashion.  He has written the fantasy equivalent of New Space Opera; widescreen baroque, indeed.  He has produced a series infused with gothic imagery but devoid of po-faced goth sensibility.  He has populated it with cartoonish characters which the reader is nonetheless able to feel a great deal of affection for.  Above all else he has achieved the holy grail of producing a novel that is unadulterated fun, a book that was written as entertainment and is unremittingly entertaining.  A lot of other writers could take note.

Martin Lewis, Strange Horizons
