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. Some of his previous works include Robopocalypse, Robogenesis, How to Survive a Robot Uprising, and Amped.
