Summary

Thrown for the biggest loop she would likely ever be forced to experience, Daisy found herself at a complete loss for once. While a course of action normally made itself clear to her, her new predicament made following her instincts impossibly dangerous. One misstep, and she not only might harm those she cared for, but could even fracture the universe itself.

Forced to rely on her unlikely alliances along with her own wits, Daisy would soon find herself going head-to-head with the most brutal race of alien conquerors the galaxy had ever known. 

If she succeeded, freedom was the prize. If she failed, oppression, slavery, and death awaited the vanquished.

The stakes were high and the pressure higher, but with the help of friends, both old and new, she was determined to give it her all. But if she failed, all was exactly what she might lose.

An incredible look from the other side

I was lucky enough to recieve a review copy of this book. and the series keeps on giving. The book itself is a plot twist on the books coming before it, and the fact that everything was signposted from the very first book makes it even better.

This book shows another side of the story that I did not see coming, and is still supported by the excellent narration. I'm very much looking forward to where the story goes next.

ground breaking

this one was soooooo good, my favourite thing that Mr. Baron does on occasions is he sets up something small that has a much bigger ripple... pure bliss

Warp drive to time drive!

Chasing Daisy
The Clockwork Chimera, Book 4
By: Scott Baron
Narrated by: Vivienne Leheny
I love this series and all the wonderful characters! The terrific wild adventures this crew gets into is crazy! When the last book ended Daisy had jumped in space but they find they jumped in time! Now what? How to get back? How to not change history? What can they do? So fun what happens! Adventure, humor, science fiction, great characters, plot, and world building makes these books habit forming!
The narrator performs perfectly! She makes the story pop!

Wow is all I can say

This installment really hit me. Loved the use of time travel and of how the characters are growing and evolving. Scott and Vivienne did it again.
Can’t wait for the next volume.

Daisy doesn't let you down

An instance of a book where I missed the codes, so I bought it.

If you enjoy Sci-Fi you'll enjoy this series, Aliens, AI, Space Battles... everything you want in a good Sci-Fi series. That said we're four books in so you probably know that by now, and I'm just preaching to the choir. If you do come across this and you haven't read the rest of the series, go do that, the first book sets a great pace and the series maintains quality.

Great world building!

I really enjoy how the writer wrote, the characters feel like people. They have growth as they traverse their world, strong conversations and interactions and fantastic world building. The audio reading is great, each character is uniquely voiced and is fantastically done! Overall the story is great! (Non-Spoiler foreshadowing, the reading improves as she learns the characters throughout each book and voice alone will help you know which character is talking!)

Wonderful Development

I love how this story has developed. Daisy is much more lovable now that she has grown more mentally. Just when I think I’ve predicted the story it surprises me with something else. Plus the narrator great as ever. I binged listened to all the books and will continue to Book 5!

Lots of Unexpected Moments, Loved It

Chasing Daisy, the fourth book in the Clockwork Chimera series and it feels like we’re just getting started. We’re introduced to a whole new story here (still a continuation) but it’s a brand new adventure for Daisy. Just when I think I have Baron figured out he goes and flips the script on me.

The story in this one is really enjoyable, and Baron is able to put this sense of unease through the entire thing. The funniest part is that the specific unease that I’m talking about doesn’t really have a solution in this book, but I have a feeling very early in book 5 we’re going to find out what is going on.

There are lots of unexpected scenes in Chasing Daisy and it’s an interesting alternate telling of events (and also interesting way to deal with the changes that you make when you jump through time). Baron does a great job grounding the entire story in great characters so it’s a breeze even when they’re jumping around time and space.

Vivienne Leheny, as always, crushes this one – voicing Daisy, the voice in her head, and the slew of other characters in the Clockwork Chimera series to perfection. Both series by Baron are proof what a great narration can do to the stories. They bring them to life and turn your book into a story. It’s awesome to be a part of.

Overall, another fantastic addition to this series and one that I absolutely loved listening to. Baron is a master storyteller and weaves stories that leave you glad you read them when you’re finished. Both the Clockwork Chimera and The Dragon Mage series are some of my favorite Sci-Fi tales and I’ve been recommending them to all of my friends.

Entertainment from beginning to end...

The amount of pre planning and preparation had to have taken months to write this saga so, this book could work out the way that it did.
Scott Baron knows how develop characters in a way that few can. As a reader or listener...he allows you time to ponder on their true intentions before slapping you with the truth.
Great book, awesome story and Vivienne Leheny is fantastic as always doing narrations.
Next Please....C.B.Luke

Time travel?

I normally do not like books that contain time travel as it is handled as an easy solution to complicated problems. Scott Baron does a great job at not only answering some questions about paradox's in his universe but also uses this book to answer how some of the less believable events in the previous books happened. Enjoy the ride as Daisy and crew try to figure out what they can and can't influence while back in time meeting old and new friends.
