When George’s father died, he left his son a watchmaker’s shop—and a whole lot more.

But George has little talent for watches and other infernal devices. When someone tries to steal an old device from the premises, George finds himself embroiled in a mystery of time travel, wild music and sexual intrigue.

“This is the real thing—a mad inventor, curious coins, murky London alleys and windblown Scottish Isles…a wild and extravagant plot that turns up new mysteries with each succeeding page.” —James P. Blaylock

    " This is one f***ed up novel. I liked it all the same. "

    " My favorite line: "Sanity often consists of knowing what not to think about." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maria | 12/28/2013

    " I didn't like this book and in particular way the sarcasm of the author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce | 11/22/2013

    " Amazingly inventive and humorous steam punk romp through Victorian England. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryon Clough | 11/6/2013

    " Just started this one. Getting into Steampunk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 10/22/2013

    " Fun, silly page-turner of a steampunk book. Lots of clockwork and gaslight. No airships. Also, not self-concious-ly, bandwagon-ly steampunk because the guy wrote it in 1987. Way to be ahead of the game, KW Jeter! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 9/14/2013

    " I waffled between 2 & 3 stars. I like this better then Boneshaker, but not by much. I'm kind of appalled at myself for not seeing the ending coming a mile away. It seems blindingly obvious in hindsight "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 6/12/2013

    " Infernal Devices is unlike any book I have ever read. It is told in a very distinct voice, almost poetic in a way. It was a great, quick read! I highly recommend! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/11/2013

    " The language was ok, but the characters were lackluster and events uninteresting. It was hard to finish. The ending was annoying and just as boring as the main character and the rest of the book. I've given it an extra star for the author's efforts in allusion and parody. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wade Winningham | 3/24/2013

    " The first few chapters succeeded in drawing me completely into the mystery and world of the book. And while the ending seemed a bit rushed, I thoroughly enjoyed it overall. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dolores | 2/10/2013

    " Mr. Dower gets chased. A lot. The end. "

    " An interesting but clunky story. I wasn't impressed with the elements woven together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Redsteve | 6/30/2012

    " Not one of Jeter's better novels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bailey | 6/4/2012

    " I'm honestly not sure what I thought of this book. There's part of me that feels like it was awesome, and another part that thinks "what the hell did I just read?" "

    " This has been out of print for years. Angry Robot Books released a sweet looking reprint this year. I'll have to re-read it soon. "

    " The protagonist is about as exciting as a lukewarm puddle of milk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tac | 8/4/2011

    " Jeter was the man that coined the term Steampunk. This is a bit of a classic in the genre. If you're a fan of Steampunk, it's a must read. Even if you just like scifi this is a good starting point into the genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 6/23/2011

    " This is classic steampunk from the moment of the genre's rebirth, before it got all romantic and cartoony and instead it was dark, funny science fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/20/2011

    " This has been out of print for years. Angry Robot Books released a sweet looking reprint this year. I'll have to re-read it soon. "
