    1. Five stars.---Clockworkers is a young adult dark-urban fantasy novel that takes the fairy tales you read as a kid, contemporary settings, and a set of well written characters and weaves them together into one great book from cover to cover. Tinkerer Sam Chablon runs a watch repair shop with her dad, whose quirky behavior in his old age includes researching elves. She thinks it's nothing more than a sign of his fraying mind, until she becomes acquainted with one herself. She quickly becomes thrus [...]


    2. This has a fabulous feeling of fantasy. As I started reading I felt like I was reading a fairytale, something that I would want to share with my daughter and nieces. As the story progresses I started wondering when the crap was going to hit the fan! So much is in this that I wasn’t sure what to be scared of exactly, but I knew from the ominous feeling that something was going to happen, and it does! Ohhh it does!Sam, the main character, has inherited her father’s clock shop. But unlike her f [...]


    3. *Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.Samantha Chablon is a miracle worker when it comes to time pieces. She loves to tinker with them and can usually fix just about anything. Over the years she and her father have fixed even the most tricky of pieces. Sam has no idea how her father manages it, but she never believes his claims of having an elf for a helper, so she just figures he has a few tricks he’s not shown her yet. After her father dies though she inh [...]


    4. I wish I we could record half stars as this book deserves 3.5. It would rate even more if the heroine was a bit more likable. As it was, I didn't understand how she rated such good friends (Jess and Yusef), or scored such an amazing boyfriend (Akida). It wasn't her ambition that was such a turn off, though admittedly, it sent her down the wrong path, but her complete inability to connect with people. To some extent, this was understandable considering how she lost her parents, but it went a bit [...]


    5. Clockworkers is a delightful, whimsical tale about a young woman who encounters an elf, originally a friend of her late father's.The elf, whose name is Piv, is clever, and -- as it turns out -- he has a lot of little elf friends. Together, they apply their singular skills to help the young woman, Sam, build a thriving luxury watch company.But Sam is headstrong, stubborn, and singleminded -- to the eventual detriment of the enterprise. Although, it's not her fault when, about halfway through the [...]


    6. Clockworkers by Ramsey IslerPrint Length: 345 pagesMy Review~~I received this book in exchange for a honest unbiased review.If the cover shows you anything is that this book is a dark fantasy tale of elves. I like that it is the old wise tale about the elves and the shoemaker but with lots of new and different twists and turns like watches instead of shoes. Very entertaining read that I enjoyed. Very fast read full of interest and intrigue that will sweep you along on Sam's adventure. Great book [...]


    7. **I received an ecopy of the book as a part of the Clockworkers blog tour organized by Reading Addiction Virtual Book Tours**I've never read anything like this before. Clockworkers is a very good urban fantasy that adds a dark and interesting twist to creatures we often find in fairy tales.Awesome characters. The main character, Sam, is easy to dislike, but I admire her for being ambitious and practical. She knows what she wants and she works to get it. I also like that she's simple and refuses [...]


    8. I received this book to give an honest review.So when I read the blurb I didn't figure this story to truly have a touch of darkness to it. I remember reading about elves and they were nice. Now not to say that the Kith's are not nice, but they do have a touch of evil to them I would say. They are not just all nice like they are portrayed. Sam works in her father's shop which deals with fixing watches. And her father has always believed in elves even though Sam thinks he is crazy now.When Sam is [...]


    9. 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 v [...]


    10. I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.Clockworkers is a fiction fantasy story.Sam is an ambitious business woman who is in the business of watches. She loves designing and tinkering with watches. When her father passes she not only inherits his watch business but also an unlikely helper, Piv. But Piv is not human and soon she finds that she bit off more than she can handle and she might not be lucky enough to survive.I liked the moral of the story [...]


    11. 4 1/2 stars.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you think this is going to be a happy book with happy little elves, like the Shoemaker and his elves, you are dead wrong. This definitely isn't horror, but has some horror qualities to it if you are expecting some sort of frolicking fairy type elves. These elves remind me of very true Dungeons and Dragons type elves. True neutral, with a nonchalance about the human world. And Sam.oh, I hated her. The author really ma [...]


    12. This book veered from my expectations. It provided a deeper dedication to the elf legend than most though it focused heavily on the maturity and self-discovery of the main character, Samantha. Normally, I'd love this but Sam wasn't a character I could connect with.When the elves came front and center, it was very entertaining. I loved Piv's quips and misunderstandings. I also enjoyed learning about the “Kith”, which is what the elves call themselves. The story behind it is fascinating and I [...]


    13. An interesting read. One often hears fairy tales of elves and we have certain expectations when reading books with these little characters. This book certainly changed my perception and left a hint of fear. The book was well written and contained few grammatical errors. I did xxzfind the journey of the main character, Sam, rather interesting. Her character is not as well developed as she could be but her personal growth is interesting to see. Her dialogue could have been better as she appears to [...]


    14. There's a creepiness to this book that tugs on the mind. You start out with Piv, the typical, happy-to-help elf who can think of nothing better to do with his time than tinker in a watch factory. But by the end of the book, there's a feeling of creepiness that niggles at you, daring you to keep reading. I sympathised with Sam, but in the end, I felt more sorry for Piv, Noc Noc and the others. Sam dug her way into the mess, and it's really only by sheer luck that she manages to dig her way out ag [...]


    15. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. After I started reading it, I realize it's a new take on the shoemaker and the elves; except with watches. That said, this is an entertaining book for all ages. If my kids were still little, I would read this with them. It's fun and interesting. While there are some dark spots, every good adventure needs those. It also has a good moral undertone, that is not too overt and doesn't become preachy as some books do. I recommend this for anybody interested in [...]


    16. Clockworkers is by far one of the best dark fantasy books I have read in a long time. The story is fun and has lots of twists and turns to make me want to keep reading. The author does an amazing job of giving each of the elves their own personality to make them unique. It’s a wonderful adventure that actual has a moral which is rare these days. All around great read.


    17. Rich with mischief, dark twists and surprising outcomes this story was a joy to read.It is not, however, for children. Older teens and adults who enjoy adventure, romance, and dark fantasy are sure to find this book a Good Read.
