Booksmith is excited to host Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse, as he turns his pen to a new kind of thriller in THE CLOCKWORK DYNASTY — join us!

Present day: When a young anthropologist specializing in ancient technology uncovers a terrible secret concealed in the workings of a three-hundred-year-old mechanical doll, she is thrown into a hidden world that lurks just under the surface of our own. With her career and her life at stake, June Stefanov will ally with a remarkable traveler who exposes her to a reality she never imagined, as they embark on an around-the-world adventure and discover breathtaking secrets of the past…

Russia, 1725: In the depths of the Kremlin, the tsar’s loyal mechanician brings to life two astonishingly humanlike mechanical beings. Peter and Elena are a brother and sister fallen out of time, possessed with uncanny power, and destined to serve great empires. Struggling to blend into pre-Victorian society, they are pulled into a legendary war that has raged for centuries.

THE CLOCKWORK DYNASTY expertly draws on Wilson’s robotics and science background, combining unforgettable characters with visionary technology in a richly-imagined and heart-pounding tale that will have you rooting for the avtomats and wondering how many of them are still living among us…

— Bestselling author Daniel H. Wilson earned his B.S. in computer science at the University of Tulsa before earning his Ph.D. in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
