Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti is a steampunk-ish novel that got some pretty great reviews in the blogosphere. I don’t read a lot of steampunk but I’m curious about the subgenre and they say this one is easy to fall into. Unfortunately, it looks like the book is out of print. I’m not exactly sure but it’s not available in either Amazon or the Book Depository. If you have an idea of where I can get an inexpensive copy of this book (preferably a store with international shipping), please let me know.
Here’s the summary from Dru Pagliassotti’s website:
Taya soars over Ondinium on metal wings. She is an icarus — a courier privileged to travel freely across the city’s sectors and mingle indiscriminately among its castes. But even she can’t outfly the web of terrorism, loyalty, murder, and intrigue that snares her after a daring mid-air rescue. Taya finds herself entangled with the Forlore brothers, scions of an upperclass family: handsome, brilliant Alister, who sits on the governing council and writes programs for the Great Engine; and awkward, sharp-tongued Cristof, who has exiled himself from his caste and repairs clocks in Ondinium’s lowest sector. Both hide dangerous secrets, in this city that beats to the ticking of a clockwork heart…
