Book Review: Clockwork Dagger by Beth Cato

I had the luck of getting to read this book on my Nook by Barnes and Noble on their B&N Readouts for the month of March. It's a good read and I'm looking forward to continuing Octavia and Alonzo's journey with book 2 The Clockwork Crown in the Clockwork Dagger series.

Book review: Clockwork Dagger

This is a different approach at being a doctor; a well gifted Medician that uses herbs and spices as her source of cure with the aid of The Lady Tree. In a world ravage by the Wasters vs the Caskentia and other neghoring countries, the sick are dying from hunger and diseases and a kingdom with a queen that hides only to protect herself. Octavia is a Medician, a naturalist Doctor that uses her gifts which some can describe as faith and magic. She was rescued and raised by Ms. Percival of the Percival Academy, quiet talented for her age, she's sent on a journey to a land where she can help heal and finally live out the life she planned for herself. But Life have other plans for and she is being chased, many attempts on her life, and learned that things are not as they seem, and so are the people who surrounds her. A Clockwork Dagger, an assassin of the Queen, defies orders by sticking with Octavia saving her life on more than a few occasions. Sent by Ms Percival as a request, Mrs. Stout, was sent along to help and aid and protect Octavia on her trip to her destination. There are flying tricycles that sounds like helicopters, mechanical limbs and mechanical people and birds, gremlins that are actually chimeras of some sort, people wielding the power of fire in the palms of their hands, factories and schools and hotel, and The magical Lady Tree. It's a mix of modern, fantasy and scifi.
