A cool new series from one of my favorite fantasy writers! I very much enjoyed the setting, an alternate 1926 in which France and the Netherlands have been engaged in a battle of robots vs. chemists for almost two centuries. The POV characters are very interesting - "clakker" Jax ; a mechanical being enslaved through alchemical "programming"; spymaster Berenice; and hunted priest Luke Visser. An exciting read for fans of steampunk!
