Clockwork Century
1 : Boneshaker

by Cherie Priest
May 1, 2014
8 Hours
978-1-62851-058-4
Ages 13+
In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.

But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.

Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.

His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

Clockwork Century: Boneshaker by Steve (Posted on 2/18/2019)
Fantastic story and universe. Was very entertained throughout this book and am looking forward to the next one in this series.
Must have series for Steampunk & Zombie fans alike! by Kevin L (Posted on 12/19/2018)
I was sold on the premise of Boneshaker before I started into it, and I was not disappointed. Steampunk, zombies, and survival horror what is there not to like? But I was even more thrilled to see that Boneshaker isn't really about the zombies or the localized apocalypse they dominate, instead it's about what people do when they're trapped in that situation - some people will help others, some will just look out for themselves, and some will actively try to exploit others - Boneshaker has them all.

As much fun as the plot is, the characters are what sells you! They're fully realized, with pasts they'd like to forget, thoroughly unpleasant presents, and uncertain futures. Of the two viewpoint characters, Briar Wilkes is the more compelling. A self-loathing wife of the man responsible for the outbreak of Zombificiation, she just glides through life until her son Ezekiel (the other viewpoint character) decides to break into the sealed part of Seattle despite the danger of zombies (or "rotters" as the local populace calls them) to find out the truth about his father, so there's nothing else Briar can do go in after him.

Zeke's viewpoint isn't as interesting, although his story has its own share of action and interesting characters, and he does really feel like a teenager. It's fun to watch him try to act like a big man as he confronts people and situations "on the inside" that he has no preparation for. It's also remarkable how the two plots zipper together in the end.

Cherie Priest's writing style is sparse and fast, the world is explained naturally, there are no data dumps, and the story moves along at a brisk pace. One of my chief complaints, though, is that the description in the action sequences is even MORE sparse than normal to the point where it can be hard to follow. More than once my immersion was broken as I suddenly realized I'd missed a word or two that would've cued me into the fact that the characters were not where I thought they were, or that people were present whom I had thought were elsewhere.

Overall, a great book and a fast read. I'd recommend it to pretty much anyone, although obviously Steampunk fans will enjoy it most. There really isn't a lot of "horror" in Boneshaker, so if you want blood and gore, you'll want to go elsewhere. Everyone else, though? Dig in.
Clockwork Century by Bill (Posted on 12/7/2018)
I'm a steampunk fan and CWC didn't disappoint. The story was a bit slow at times but not enough to detract from the story overall. The voice work was clear and distinct. I would reccomend this book and plan on buying the others in the series.
Boneshaker by Wm Reid (Posted on 5/11/2017)
Great story, inventive creations of mechanized nightmares, this story will shake you to the bone... Lol
Boneshaker by Daniel (Posted on 10/29/2016)
A great lead-in to this steam-punk series. I have all five GA audiobooks, and I can't wait to get to the rest.
Clockwork Century 1 by Kaycie (Posted on 10/15/2016)
We enjoyed this book. Good plots and twists to keep you intrigued!!
Not for me by Amy (Posted on 9/2/2016)
Did not particularly enjoy this one. Maybe it's because my head is bothering me, but I'm certain it's not. I didn't like the story, and for some reason the production felt off. The performances felt a tad on the obnoxious side.
Boneshaker by Kambriel (Posted on 2/16/2016)
Interesting premise, well written. Good character development and story flow. Narration and voice acting is a little stiff at first, but becomes more natural.
great book by Chase (Posted on 2/12/2016)
I loved the work GA did with this book. Very entertaining.
Suspenseful by Rosendo (Posted on 1/14/2016)
Once they enter the city i could not get enough of it. This is my first audio book and its just the type of stories i like, no regrets on this audio book. Makes my one hour drive to work not long enough.

Gray book by William (Posted on 1/22/2015)
I really enjoyed this book it keeps you on the Edge of your seat and awake on those long Nights driving can't wait on the rest of the series to come out
Random pick up on my drive. by Timothy (Posted on 1/15/2015)
I was driving from California to Louisiana and forgot to pack enough books so I stopped in the Tehachapi, Ca area and looked for something the wife and I could enjoy. We ha never tried an Steampunk type novels and we both thought this looked interesting. It started out kinda slow but kept us interested and good thing we did because the 2nd half of the book was entertaining. Enough so that I have already order the next two int he series.
Boneshaker by Craig (Posted on 1/11/2015)
Slow starting picked up by the 3rd disc. loved it by the end
A Fantastic Read, or listen in this case by Daniel (Posted on 12/31/2014)
An absolutely stunning start to a new legendary series.
The audio production is amazing.
You will never regret giving this a try.
Boneshaker by John (Posted on 12/28/2014)
Had a long road trip ahead of me, and while making a pit stop at a truck stop picked this up. At first I wasn't sure what to make of it, but the longer I listened the more engrossed by the story I became. Was unable to find the second book in the series at my last stop, but located the third (with a promo code for a free download). That being said I truly enjoyed the storyline and will definitely be getting the rest of the books as funds allow.
Pure Awesomeness by Candace (Posted on 12/27/2014)
I Picked this book up on a whim at the Pilot and never regretted it. The story is captivating and has a ton of action.
This got me into Steampunk Novels by Chris (Posted on 12/25/2014)
I had always loved the Steampunk genre, but had never read any books with said theme. My father had bought Boneshaker at a truck stop, and he thought it sounded cool (and had a long drive ahead of him). When he returned home, I found it and, intrigued, took a listen to it myself. I loved it. This was a great story that kept you at the edge of your seat numerous times. A great conspiracy mystery wrapped in zombies, Steampunk, air-pirates, heartwarming family side story and action. The problem with Steampunk is that everything has to be described on how it looks, but Graphic Audio does an ok job, and a great job of providing background music and misc. audio, on even the simple items used, to really immerse you into the story.
Thank You GraphicAudio ! by JEFF GraphicAudio Fan (Posted on 12/13/2014)
Jeff always felt he was missing out on one of life's great pleasures, reading. All the adventures and stories that were written would never be known to Jeff.
And than along came GraphicAudio!
And now Jeff has a new smile on his face, and a twinkle of happiness has begun to form in his heart.
Jeff listens to GraphicAudio, as they tell stories of many genre and many adventures in theatrical style. Jeff is very happy now.
Jeff always says,"GraphicAudio delivers from heart and soul, to heart and soul!"
And Jeff also says,"listening to GraphicAudio is better than reading!"

Jeff Loves GraphicAudio!

Thank you GraphicAudio!
love it by Justin (Posted on 11/29/2014)
Great series
clockwork century by Lee (Posted on 11/27/2014)
great book love the story can not wait for the next one.
boneshaker by Jerry (Posted on 11/22/2014)
It's a great mixture of the old west the Civil War and fantasy, the progression was at a good pace, and the characters back stories were good. Entertaining to the last, and the music was cool as well.
Fun adaptation by Michael (Posted on 11/17/2014)
Normally I stick to unabridged audiobooks, but was surprised to see this on the shelf this summer. I've listened to the original unabridged audio from Audible and was disappointed they haven't finished the series. There were some parts of the story that it probably helped knowing the source material, but I was entranced enough after 2 cds to pivk up the second book as soon as I found it. Great cast and background music and effects.
Clockwork Century by Curtus (Posted on 10/5/2014)
this is a very good book and i can not wait to hear the other books and be able to get the new book coming out.
