    DescriptionRejoin the adventure in the third novel of "Lake's Clockwork Earth" series. Paolina Barthes, young sorceress, is crossing the Equatorial Wall, attempting to take herself and her magic away from the grasp of powerful men in the empires of the north. Emily Childress is still aboard the renegade Chinese submarine, along with her devoted Captain, and the British chief petty officer Angus al-Wazir. They are all being sought most urgently by the powers that secretly rule the Northern Earth - the Silent Order and the White Birds. And a third power, of the Southern Earth, has its eye on Paolina; she will not be allowed to bring the political turmoil of the North into the more mystical South.

    Review quote
    "Political conflicts and philosophical arguments find closure at last in this splendidly baroque whirl of geomancy and Victorian clockwork...Lake wields big themes--magic and religion versus science, free will, colonialism, and a bit of romance--with surprising elegance, and readers will enjoy cherishing the characters and pondering the concepts of this "clockpunk" world. "-Publishers Weekly, "starred review, on "Pinion""The delight is in what's seen en route, as Lake has configured his world-dominating empires, one British, the other Chinese, with huge and devoted attention to the last detail. The delight of the next volume--prefigured with unrelenting clarity in "Escapement"'s final pages--should be the discovery that the destination adds up."--"Washington"" Post Book World "on "Escapement""The very cosmology of this world is an enigmatic astonishment, and it underpins every single bit of action and character...Fantasy has always been "escapist" in the best sense of the word, and Lake engineers a fine tale of humans in search of liberation from the clockwork and customs that ensnare them and us as well."--"Sci-Fi Weekly" on "Escapement"
