"Timekeeper is a triumph." -Bustle
"Timekeeper's premise is original and its world unique." -EW.com


"I was in an accident. I got out. I'm safe now." An alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, where a damaged clock can fracture time-and a destroyed one can stop it completely.

A prodigy mechanic who can repair not only clockwork, but time itself, determined to rescue his father from a Stopped town.

A series of mysterious bombings that could jeopardize all of England.

A boy who would give anything to relive his past, and one who would give anything to live at all.

A romance that will shake the very foundations of time.

The first book in a dazzling new steampunk-fantasy trilogy, Timekeeper introduces a magical world of mythology and innovation that readers will never want to leave.

"Timekeeper is an extraordinary debut, at once familiar and utterly original. Between its compelling world, its lovely prose, and its wonderful characters, the pages flew by." -Victoria Schwab, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Alive with myth, mystery, and glorious romance, Timekeeper will keep hearts pounding and pages turning til the stunning conclusion. Reader beware-there's magic in these pages." -Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl from Everywhere

"Timekeeper is a triumph . . . If you read only one such book . . . let it be this one." -Bustle

"Timekeeper's premise is original and its world unique." -EW.com

"While the world is wildly interesting and fantastic, with broken clock towers that have left towns frozen in time, it's the emotional impact and diverse cast of characters that make this book soar . . . The resulting story is an exciting and inclusive one, drawing in elements of magic, mystical spirits, swoon-filled romance, and just so much more." -BookRiot

"Part mystery and part romance, this fantasy novel delves into what it means to grow up and make important decisions. With an easily relatable main character struggling to fit in, the novel has a realistic and contemplative voice. VERDICT: A must-have richly written fantasy novel that will have readers eagerly anticipating the next volume." -School Library Journal

"Sim creates a cast of complex and diverse characters, as well as a mythology to explain how the clock towers came to exist . . . an enjoyable, well-realized tale." -Publishers Weekly

"[M]ystery, LGBTQ romance, and supernatural tale of clock spirits and sabotage that explores how far people might go for those they love. Its strongest elements are the time-related mythology and the supernatural gay romance." -Booklist

"This LGBTQ steampunk romance sports a killer premise and admirably thorough worldbuilding, helpfully annotated in the author's afterword. The characters-even the bad guys-are sympathetically drawn and commendably diverse in sexuality and gender." -Kirkus Reviews

"An enjoyable start to a promising new trilogy." -BookPage

“Beautiful, emotional and nuanced”

The steampunk setting really made this book - detailed and well-thought out and beautifully evoked - but I loved the characters and the magic system as well, and the way the relationships and puzzle and stakes grew... More
