    One Reply to “The Wolf Tree”

    1. So often overshadowed by the first and second, the beginning and end in any trilogy, and yet my favourite of all three books. The author's world building just got better (and believe me it was pretty exceptional in the first book, J.C. Bemis Proudly Presents The Mystifying Medicine Show), the American 'tall tales combined with other myths and legends (there was definitely some Norse mythology in there unless I'm very much mistaken) had me itching to read up on them and, oh my goodness, those cha [...]

    2. If The Nine Pound Hammer was amazing then The Wolf Tree was extraordinary! This book sucks you in right at the beginning with the talk of "The Darkness". This sequel was in my opinion more suspenseful and kept me surprised the more I read. My favorite part was finding out that.well, I don't want to spoil it for you ;) . There were so many events happening that I couldn't put the book down. Another thing I liked about it is that it's not only told in Ray's point of view this time around. We get t [...]

    3. I liked this one. Not quite to a four but more than "just" a three.Ray is in the story but he is not nearly as central a character. Sally takes on a much larger role, as does Marisol (and her snakes which still give me the creeps). Jolie, too. And (without giving too much away) another character we did not expect to see again.I don't quite "get" the whole machine thing, but I think book three should tie that up. This book was definitely a middle "we're not ready to finish but we want to tell y [...]

    4. Not bad overall. Definitely a 2nd book in a series in that you really need to read the first and the story doesn't have as nice a conclusion as does the original book because there are so many story threads open for the third.I will say having so many viewpoints in this story made it less strong than the original where Ray was our main focus. Ray doesn't seem to have as much to do in this book by comparison. The knowledge of Ramblers and the existence of legend and magic has become just part of [...]

    5. In this second volume of “The Clockwork Dark”, many of the characters of the first book travel throughout the country learning new skills and maturing. Their paths finally join at the Wolf Tree for a brief reunion before splitting up again with each group travelling with a specific task to help defeat the growing darkness. The newly rebuilt 9 pound hammer has been stolen and must be recovered. Nel has to be warned that the Gog knows about Shuckstack, the safe haven he founded for the childre [...]

    6. My son and I listen to books on tape all the time. We listened to the 9 pound hammer and enjoyed it very much. Then we started reading this book, the cover said it was for kids 8-12. Not true! 8 year olds should not be reading this book or listening to it. This book has very graphic death scenes and racial slurs. I am not light of heart nor do I believe in censorship. However, I do think perhaps that the publishers or whoever rates these stories should really think about who the audience should [...]

    7. The second book of the Clockwork Dark series finds the main characters separated, and new characters joining the fray. The underlying element of ecology or conservationism comes more to the forefront, but not to the detriment of the story. In fact, it becomes a driving force in the story, almost a character. The chemistry between the characters, many of whom have paired up here, grows. Is there even a bit of romance developing? A bit of a love triangle? At any rate, this book maintains the pace [...]

    8. Continuing the story begun in "The Nine Pound Hammer," this book develops the plot nicely and enlarges the characters. I think the author does a good job engaging the interest of the reader in the lives of the various characters. I was sorry the third book in the trilogy wasn't out already so I could see how the story ends. I am anxiously waiting for November when the final story should be available. I think most 10 and up readers would enjoy the series. I loved all the folk legends and supersti [...]

    9. I picked this up yesterday, so as to not have to deal with it at the official book launch party on Saturday. The author is a friend and neighbor, and the Offspring will be performing at the launch. As eager as we all are to read Mockingjay, the Possum preferred to start reading this.

    10. I was very excited when the second book came out. It is a true second volume that follows the pattern of many trilogies. John lives in my town and I am thrilled that he is doing so well. The book continues to have new twists, new characters, and new threats to our hero Ray. A great read for anyone who loves fantasy, but is just a bit tired of the british wizarding invasion.

    11. Like some other reviewers, I felt the multitude of perspectives used and multitude of hanging threads at the end weakened my connection at bit to this sophomore work. However, it's still a fun tale and holds enough potential for me to look forward to more from this author. Definitely darker with slightly more mature themes.

    12. Ray is now a Rambler, and is given his first assignment. Not wanting to be left out, Sally, Ray's younger sister goes in search of their missing father.In this adventure, Bemis uses symbolism from Norse mythology.A good, fast-paced action fantasy.

    13. This book is a little bit less boring, but it was still fantastic, with twists, turns and surprises at every page. I feel sad that Conker had to stay in the water for nearly a year, but he's allright, and as strong as ever!

    14. Really like this series. This is the second book in a series of three. Great fantasty story that keeps you wanting to turn the page to find out what happens next. Plus he's another great local author.

    15. This is John Claude Bemis's second book in the Clockwork Dark series, which is featured in Spanish Springs Library's Book Buddies for May 2011. Check out our review of Book 1 (The Nine Pound Hammer) for discussion questions. Enjoy!

    16. Well done follow up to The Nine Pound Hammer. I enjoyed this book even more than the first. The Wolf Tree offered up more action and adventure than the first book. There were so many loose ends at the end of this book so I'm excited to see if the machine will be destroyed.

    17. I may give this another try since the first one was so engaging. This one just didn't have the same pull and I lost interest. Too many other good books to take time for this one.

    18. Great books to read aloud to older elementary kids. My boys and I loved this series and can't wait for Mr. Bemis' next book to come out!

    19. Decent sequel but I really rushed my reading to get to the point where they all figured out a key point in the book. I was intrigued that the author decided to split the point of view in this story.

    20. Again slow moving. The prose is good and the characters are compelling, but the chase-plot is simply too long.

    21. This was a great sequel and such fun books. I love the characters. I really enjoyed it as much as the first and can't wait to continue reading.

    22. Oddly enough, I didn't have as high expectations for this as I did for volume 1, but I liked it better. I really preferred the variety of perspectives here and the worldbuilding shone through.
