The Clockwork Witch (The Clockwork Chronicles Book 1) by Michelle D. Sonnier – Review by Shea Gilkerson
The Clockwork Witch by Michelle D. Sonnier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed the world building and descriptions in this book. The idea of blending magic and technology is a new approach, and the theory of it is very interesting.
Where I had issues was the bullying and snarkiness in this book. Whether it be towards witches, sisters, daughters, neighbors, etc, there was a lot of nastiness towards people in this book. That treatment also led to Arabella being meek and immature, which would realistically be how an abused person could be…but it was to the point that it sometimes it was distracting from an otherwise very intriguing storyline and beautiful descriptions.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story and think it is a wonderful idea to blend magic and technology. The descriptions of how Arabella saw magic and that that is how other witches see it made it easy to picture in my head, exactly how the author envisioned it in their writing. I’ll follow future additions to this series!
