ABOUT THE CLOCKWORK DYNASTY:  "The Clockwork Dynasty is my new favorite alternate history Novel!  It's like some fantastic hybrid of Highlander and The Terminator--or maybe a cross between I, Robot, and The Difference Engine, with a dash of Blade Runner for good measure.  It reads like classic steampunk on steroids.  In other words, it's totally bad ass and you're going to love it."  ~ Ernest ClineThe New York Times Bestselling Author of Ready Player One 

In the rugged landscape of eastern Oregon, a young scientist named June uncovers an exquisite artifact--a three-hundred-year-old mechanical doll whose existence seems to validate her obsession with a harrowing story she was told by her grandfather many years earlier.  The mechanical doll, June believes, is proof of a living race of automatons that walk undetected among us to this day. Ingeniously hidden inside the ancient doll is a lost message, addressed to the court of Peter the Great, czar of Russia. Russia, 1725: Peter and Elena, two human-like mechanical beings, are brought to life under the watchful guise of Peter the Great.  Their struggle to serve in the court of the czar while blending in, and to survive amid those who fear and wish to annihilate them, will take Peter and Elena across Russia, Europe, and, ultimately, across the centuries to modern day.

The Clockwork Dynasty is Daniel H. Wilson's masterful New Novel.  It seamlessly interweaves past and present, exploring a race of beings that live by different principles than humans, but ultimately value loyalty.  As June learns more about these beings, she is quickly drawn into a fierce battle that has spanned the centuries, and will ultimately determine the survival or extermination of this ancient race.
