But the elves have remained hidden from humans for good reason, and it's not easy to keep a factory full of territorial elves secret in the middle of a metropolis. One night when someone attempts to break into the factory, the elves take matters into their own hands. The incident gives Sam a glimpse of a dark and twisted side of elves that no fairy tales ever mentioned. Samantha will soon discover that great ambition often comes with great risk, and although her elf partners have agreed to work without pay, there are other costly consequences involved in striking a deal with elves.

When I saw Clockworkers' ominous cover, I was definitely intrigued. Then, after reading the book's description, I knew I had to read it!
I immediately fell in love with this book, as well as Piv, a member of the Kith. When he speaks of Sam's parents, I got teary-eyed.
"But if all humans are capable of the sort of adoration your parents had for each
other, and for you, then your kind are the most fortunate of all nature's children."
With so much detail - not only in the modern world, but with the various myths and legends surrounding elves and similar fantastical creatures - it was impossible not to feel a connection with the story as well as the characters, which are three-dimensional and flawed. Flawed, in that they make real-world mistakes, which makes them feel real, not like characters at all.
Clockworkers is a fantastical read, and I encourage anyone who is a fan of fantasy, especially dark fantasy, to read it. You won't be disappointed.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
