  • An early clockpunk work -- intrigue and drama in a world where the tyrannical Goblins, the Maglore, have been overthrown, but the hundred human realms are dependent on the hundred surviving Goblin "Jewels" -- in actuality, magical pieces of clockwork that do such things as maintain mines or keep the shores safe.It opens with two of the allegedly extinct Maglore going to another Goblin -- one of the inferior breeds that are known to have survived -- to find a Maglore child. A few years later, Wil [...]


  • Okay, I'll admit it. I didn't choose this book because of the blurb on the back cover, or because it was recommended to me. I chose it because the cover looked so different from current fantasy novels. I chose a book by its cover. Phew, that's kind of a relief to admit. I mean, I know everyone does it (more or less), but at least I didn't do it in a negative way? Anyways, I'm actually incredibly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I genuinely felt like it was an original plot and story li [...]


  • The blurb for this book is accurate but makes it sound terribly boring, I'm glad that I just took a chance reading it. The world is populated by Humans and Goblins, the latter of which come in five different flavors. One of these Goblin subgroups now have a mythical status, having led an extremely oppressive empire that enslaved humans and gaining a reputation for both extreme cruelty and extreme aristocratic frivolity. The humans eventually rose up and nearly extinctified their Goblin overlords [...]


  • A fantasy novel about Humans who have overthrown their Goblin oppressors. Apparently the Goblins are better at magic/science than the humans, and humans had been low class/slaves to them for thousands of years. That is until humans learn that glass, salt, and fire are instantly deadly to Goblins. They think that they killed all of the type of Goblin that made up the ruling class, and have switched the tables on the lower forms of Goblins. A Thousand years later the Goblins are the slaves and the [...]


  • So, now I'm at the end, I need to gather my thoughtsI really enjoyed the book. I liked the rich and complicated world and characters and I loved the idea of the goblin machines that were needed to support the existence of life. The frozen society that had been created as perfect and held that way was an excellent background to the characters -- few of whom were actually what they seemed to be, and none of whom did what they were told.The relationship between Lili and Wilrowan was very well done [...]


  • In former times, many many years ago, the Goblins were the masters. After being overthrown, all except a few of these rulers are gone, with those few surviving driven into hiding. But now the time has come for the Maglore Goblins to repress and rule humanity once more. As they pull strings of power and advance their plans, it is a number of “jewels,” that are in fact weird devices, that are the key. But only a covert order called the Specularii believe that the Goblins still exist – and on [...]


  • Generations ago, goblins ruled humans impacably and mercilessly. They were overthrown, and all but a few of the former rulers (the Maglore) are destroyed. The few that survive are driven into hiding where they have remained for centuries, until all but a secret sorcerous order, the Specularii, have been convinced the Maglore were but legends. Now, the time is ripe for the Maglore to reclaim their lost thrones and crush humanity once more. Even as they subvert the current human kings and steal th [...]


  • Fair to middling fantasy of manners; my quest for something that will give me the same rush of a reading experience as The Element of Fire sadly continues. This one was hampered by weird pacing and chronology; alternating chapters weren't happening at the same time, and everything finally came together, I just went "Eh?" There are some great individual scenes--Lucien's first meetings with Tremeur come to mind, and pretty much anything with Raith is excellent--but they don't cohere into a very im [...]


  • I read this book a few times when I was younger and always managed to come back to it, even though I'd already read it. Now as an adult I would like to either find the copy I had or find another copy and read it again just to see if I like it as much now as I did then. This was one of the books that really pushed me to love fantasy novels and I have yet to find another fantasy novel quite as intriguing to me as this one has been.


  • A weaker effort than Edgerton's other quasi-Georgian novels (Goblin Moon and The Gnome's Engine), but enjoyable nonetheless. The characters are fun, though there are a LOT of them. It also seemed as though this one was being set up very heavily for a sequel that unfortunately never was written. Consequently, several storylines seem to be left hanging. Overall, an enjoyable storyline and an engaging cast of characters, especially for those who enjoy fiction set in the late 18th century.


  • I enjoyed this book, but I think it would be better on a re-read. There was so much jumping around in time and places that I kept getting confused on when and where I was. It also took about 200 pages before I felt we were really getting into the plot.


  • This book had so many good things going for it. I liked the setting and society a lot, but the first half of the story dragged quite a bit. The end was good, but I was tired by the time I got there.
