Review by wyvernfriend
In the 17th Century Christiaan Huygens invented a clockwork automaton and with it the Netherlands took over the world, now the only country standing against them is France, in exile in the new world. Jax is one of these Clakkers, who suddenly discovers, via an accident, freedom of a sort, freedom from the built-in geas, the compulsions to obey.It's such a different story and I really enjoyed it.
