  • Neil Peart
  • Kevin J. Anderson

Some lives can be summed up in a sentence or two. Other lives are epics. In Clockwork Angels, number-one best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson and legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart created a fabulous, adventurous steampunk world in a novel to accompany the smash Rush concept album of the same name.

It was a world of airships and alchemy; clockwork carnivals; pirates; lost cities; a rigid Watchmaker who controlled every aspect of life; and his nemesis, the ruthless and violent Anarchist, who wanted to destroy it all. Anderson and Peart have returned to their colourful creation to explore the places and the characters that still have a hold on their imaginations.

Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village; she long ago gave up on her dreams and ambitions to take care of her ailing father, an alchemist and an inventor. When he dies, he gives Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people's stories - and ultimately her own.

Clockwork Lives is a steampunk Canterbury Tales and much more, as Marinda strives to change her life from a mere "sentence or two" to a true epic.

Love books. This is a favourite

I really liked the first one and loved this one. So creative and characters are brought in front (with a drop of blood). Hard to describe without spoiling. For Rush fans, there is an additional dimension\context to the album.

An adventure from a father to a daughter

This book was written and published before Neil Peart was diagnosed with the brain cancer that ultimately shortened his life.It is touching to realize that just like the book’s protagonist, Neil own daughter Olivia (who was six when this book was published and ten when Neil passed away) will also live the adventures of her father by the immense legacy that he left.
