    (KINDLE) Escapement author Jay Lake I have not read Lake's first book in this steampunk setting Mainspring but this one is uite good The world building and character development are top notch The setting is bizarre but finely textured a place made real by the imagination The characters are engaging and believable The dialogue has an unfortunate tendency to end up in false profundity but at least Lake is using dialogue to dramatize conflict I a

Every character should want something even if it is only a glass of water Kurt VonnegutJay Lake has many good ualities as an author He created a very compelling world with Mainspring a world built of gears from the ground up His fluid writing style helps propel you through this world faster than your disbelief can keep up The second book started out promising His weak link in the first book had been a protagonist who had nothing to recommend himself The generic young man who had surprising powers and a strength no one realized goes on a uest Generic to say the leastA seuel with three uniue protagonist promised to give him room to breath They re all off the beaten path when it comes to personalities and motives It sounded like a distinct improvement upon the Legend of Zelda blandness of the first protagonistAnd for about 300 pages it worked just fine There were issues with how he seems to create interesting characters but doesn t appear to empathize with them all that greatly It seemed like something you d expect from a compulsive writer who might possibly have Aspergers He creates neat characters but doesn t seem to connect with them like them or want to know them betterWhich is why it all falls apart in the last act I reached a point in the book where every character basically ran out of story The young girl who had sought out the English Wizards ends up wandering Europe looking for not even sure The grizzled Scotsman fails his initial mission and wanders through Africa because And the third story about a woman captured by the Chinese due to mistaken identity didn t really have much of a purpose to begin withLake is a terrible writer for plot You could describe his stories like a dream as a series of things that happened one after the other without doubling back or fitting together This structure was starting to show its age back when Voltaire used itIt stinks of a story created in spite of its protagonists He backed himself into a corner and when the characters run out of interesting things to do I ran out of interest in the story His lack of sympathy for his creations had already become galling and when I no longer worried about what would happen next I decided to pull out the bookmark and call it a day
