The Clock King and the Queen of the Hourglass

The Clock King and the Queen of the Hourglass - Vera Nazarian This 99 page novella left me wanting more for an ending - or else I just didn't get it.

This is a genre that I don't normally read so my rating probably represents my lack of interest in the sci-fi/fantasy/futuristic genre. Nevertheless, I found the writing style compelling and enjoyable. I thought the story was fluid and piqued my interest.

I even felt I sort of could even visualize the androgynous character that populated the book. The main character Laiei was a worthy lead.

I would have given this novella a 3.5 star rating if that was possible on this site.

The somewhat average rating is due to the lack of a viable end to the story. If you "got" the ending, then please excuse my rating. I do recommend this book to people that enjoy this genre as it is well written.
