"Narrator Gary Furlong immerses listeners in a steampunk Victorian world that is controlled by ancient clock towers. Clock mechanics ensure that the flow of time isn't disturbed, and 17-year-old prodigy Danny Hart is the most talented among them. After an accident on the job, Danny is sent on a low-risk assignment, where he meets and falls for Colton. Seemingly a young man, Colton is actually the town's clock tower spirit. As the story develops, bombings threaten clock towers across England, and may be tied to Danny's accident and the trapping of his father in a time-stopped town. With Furlong's stellar voice acting, the story's many characters are distinguishable and memorable. As written, Danny and Colton's forbidden romance veers towards the saccharine, but Furlong keeps it on the side of sweet and believable. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
