Alan Campbell has created a wonderful genre blurring series in the Deepgate Codex. This is a series that has roots in fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, and even horror. Each of the three books so far have a very different feel and style. They are filled with Angels, Demons, Gods, and creatures. There are swords and bows, guns and bombs, and cool constructs. God of Clocks is book three in the series and one that I truly enjoyed.

She saw white eyes and teeth in the darkness.

She saw white eyes and teeth in the darkness earby to bless and sanction her torture. She passed out. When Rachel woke again, she was lying on her back on a narrow camp bed, her neck propped upon a soft pillow. Her arms and legs felt as heavy as the lumber joists in the ceiling above her. A sudden sharp pain in her head made her cry out.

In the middle, caught between warring gods and fallen angels, humanity finds itself pushed to the brink of extinction. But the strange fortress of the god of clocks is unlike anything they could ever have expected. 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. But the strange fortress of the god of clocks is unlike anything they could ever have expected Books by Alan Campbell.

i loved the first two books in the series as well as the stand-alone short stories. and there is a lot to like in this book as well, the writing is still great and there some some zany action set pieces and wonderfully imaginative ideas. however, right near the end of the book the entire plot goes off the rails and it sort of stumbles to a very vague and anticlimactic ending. we only get to see a fragment of resolution for most of the characters, just a hint that maybe things are okay, but the events that led us there were so bizarre and contrived its hard to really sense any kind of narrative focus to the book. certain characters, like carnival, seem thrown into the story with no real logic, and others, like dill, are almost an afterthought. dill was the main character of the first book and we really don't get any kind of emotional resolution, he's just tagging along with rachel and mina the whole time. and certain other side characters (the girl isla and the shapeshifter called maybe john) are just left hanging with no real explanation of who they are or why they were even in the novel. to be honest, it almost feels like there was supposed to be a fourth book in the series, but the publisher cancelled it at the last minute, so alan campbell had to hurry up and end the series here instead. i would have been much happier to have this book end on another cliffhanger (like iron angel did) and then have a fourth book to give the series the ending it deserves.

God of Clocks picks up soon after Iron Angel leaves off. It doesn't really add much that's new, though the battle continues, and some of the mysteries are revealed. I'm sorry to say that it's only some.

Campbell wove in a number of intriguing threads in books 1 and 2. He leaves quite a lot of them loose in this third volume. There are two other books in this universe, Lye Street and Damnation for Beginners, but they appear to be relatively free standing. With that, I'd have to count this closing book of the trilogy as a disappointment. Where Iron Angel fulfilled its promise in unexpected ways, this book does not. It moves the story forward, but deteriorates at the end into a not very satisfying dead end.

<spoiler>Towards the end of the book, Campbell inserts a time travel segment. (God of Clocks, after all.) As most time travel efforts do, even in defter hands, this ends with a whimper. Campbell pulls of a slight variation of the time travel standards, but only a slight one. And it ends poorly - more a colorful plot mechanism than credible narrative.</spoiler>

As noted, there are two other books in the universe, but I don't expect to buy either of them. I'd sum up this trilogy as interesting and innovative, but hampered by occasionally inadequate description, and brought down by a substandard ending. I can recommend the first book, Scar Night as a interesting read, but I'd stop there. You could even stop after book 2, Iron Angel. But in my view, this third book will frustrate and disappoint you.

I really liked this over all series. I read Scar Night ages ago and didn't even know Campbell had written sequels. He's a good author and his descriptions of this crazy world are amazing. Love a number of the characters, especially the likes of John Anchor.

What I didn't like was the weird plot twist this took at the end, here in God of Clocks. The title says it all, really. Not sure why Campbell choose to take this direction, considering how the first two books where laid out. Still, it's a good read. His writing style is solid and his characters fun and unique.

Entertaining trilogy, slightly disappointed with the ending, definitely still worth the read!!

The series is fine. Did not suck me in.

Once again a good read, but I did not fancy the Time castle much.Was a bit confusing at "times" Many twists and turns and never boring.

If you've read the others you have to finish the series, but I was a bit disappointed with this last book. The author seemed to leave several things hanging. Overall a decent book though, and I had no difficulties with the condition of the book itself.
3rd in series, unfortunately if you don't remember what you read before it is complex enough to get lost. But the series is unique in ideas and scope.
