    Description

    Maria Isabella Boyd's success as a Confederate spy has made her too famous for further espionage work, and now her employment options are slim. Exiled, widowed, and on the brink of poverty, she reluctantly goes to work for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency in Chicago.

    Adding insult to injury, her first big assignment is commissioned by the Union Army. In short, a federally sponsored transport dirigible is being violently pursued across the Rockies, and Uncle Sam isn't pleased. The Clementine is carrying a top secret load of military essentials - essentials that must be delivered to Louisville, Kentucky, without delay.

    Intelligence suggests that the unrelenting pursuer is a runaway slave who's been wanted by authorities on both sides of the Mason-Dixon for 15 years. In that time, Captain Croggon Beauregard Hainey has felonied his way back and forth across the continent, leaving a trail of broken banks, stolen war machines, and illegally distributed weaponry from sea to shining sea. And now it's Maria's job to go get him. He's dangerous quarry, and she's a dangerous woman, but when forces conspire against them both, they take a chance and form an alliance. She joins his crew, and he uses her connections. She follows his orders. He takes her advice. And somebody, somewhere, is going to rue the day he crossed either one of them.

    Commentaires

    "Piracy meets politics head-on in this steampunk thriller.... Explosive battle scenes, riveting action, and a sharp-eyed examination of the mistrust between Croggon's all-black crew and very white, very Southern Maria play out in a desperate race against the clock." ( Publishers Weekly)

    Fun!

    No Pulitzer prizes here. This is a quick story with an interesting cast and some unique action sequences. For a good time, call Clementine.

    Nice stand alone story

    I have been enjoying Mrs. Priest Clockwork Century and this is a story that features one of the more enjoyable characters. The narration was very well done, even though it shifts between a male & female narrator. Well worth the cost.

    Great audio production

    I liked Clementine better than Boneshaker. It stands alone in the same world, so you don’t have to read Boneshaker first. Clementine features a couple of really interesting protagonists and it’s nice to see a black man on the cover of a fantasy novel, isn’t it? The audio version of Clementine is terrific. The two narrators, Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine, work together seamlessly.

    Original and Fun!

    What made the experience of listening to Clementine the most enjoyable?

    I found the plot interesting and original. Narration was very good and I am looking forward to more stories from Cherie Priest.

    What other book might you compare Clementine to and why?

    Steampunk isn't a new genre, but it's truly blossoming these days. Similar new (at least to me) authors are bringing originality and energy that I really appreciate.

    Have you listened to any of Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Narration was good -- I really appreciate having female and male voices on this one. I'll be on the lookout for both Pearlman and Bevine in future.

    Any additional comments?

    Worth your time and your credit!

    Painfully mediocre

    I did not enjoy this book at all. The phrase "science fiction" generally implies that the writer has some basic understanding of science, correct? A high school equivalent understanding of physics would be sufficient to cause any reader to find this book laughable.

    Suspending disbelief on that topic is difficult enough, but when you couple it with the writer's borderline offensive level of whitewashing of the confederacy and ludicrous degree of vilification of the union (every character who identifies as pro-union is practically mustache-twirlingly evil for no reason).

    Frankly this book is just terrible. I didn't like it and (whoever you are) I don't think you'll like it either. Save your money, your Audible credits and your time, skip this one.

    fast and the furious in a dirigible!

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would indeed recommend this book to anyone.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The get away was very good.

    What does Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They bring the lady like and the manly man persona right into the story that makes you feel it.

    Did Clementine inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    Any additional comments?

    It's a quick read with an interesting plot that unfolds in a timely fashion.

    Fun with Great narration

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story, through the ending wasn't surprising, but it was fun and I like haven't an alternate world built around steamship (blimps) travel

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The story, fun, simple, straight forward

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine ?

    Yes, these narrators made the story, I listen to the first book with some difficult, and since Dina (much less Victor) only narrate this tale, I won't be going back to the other books, instead I will be looking for other stories narrated by Dina (and Victor)

    OK story spoiled for me by Mr Bevine's narration

    Would you try another book from Cherie Priest and/or Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine ?

    Victor Bevine's narration ruined this for me. His voice was too forceful, like he was reading a monster truck rally ad most of the time. And the one character who was supposed to sound Jamaican came off, to my ear at least, sometimes as Irish, sometimes even slipping into German, with only a tinge of Jamaican.I didn't find the story terribly interesting, either. Combine these two things and I doubt I'll try other of Cherie Priest's works.

    I love Cherie Priest

    Honestly, everything I've ever read of hers I just devoured. I like her zombies, and alternate history, and action, and characters, and dirigibles. I haven't read her other series yet but I plan to.
