Some lives can be summed up in a sentence or two. Other lives are epics. In Clockwork Angels, number-one best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson and legendary Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart created a fabulous, adventurous steampunk world in a novel to accompany the smash Rush concept album of the same name.
It was a world of airships and alchemy; clockwork carnivals; pirates; lost cities; a rigid Watchmaker who controlled every aspect of life; and his nemesis, the ruthless and violent Anarchist, who wanted to destroy it all. Anderson and Peart have returned to their colourful creation to explore the places and the characters that still have a hold on their imaginations.
Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village; she long ago gave up on her dreams and ambitions to take care of her ailing father, an alchemist and an inventor. When he dies, he gives Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people's stories - and ultimately her own.
Clockwork Lives is a steampunk Canterbury Tales and much more, as Marinda strives to change her life from a mere "sentence or two" to a true epic.

Better than the original?

While technically a sequel, I'd guess you say this was more of a companion piece to Clockwork Angels. In some ways it surpasses the original. Either way enjoyable. Kudos to the production team on the variety and quality of voice talent that brings the sub-stories to life. A well used credit!

Order versus Chaos versus Freedom?

Definitely a great collection of stories. As with the first book, the authors leave you with the impression that an ordered existence can't be happy and free though. I suspect they were shooting to suggest balance but either way it doesn’t marr the story lines. I definitely enjoyed reading another edition of adventure in this fanciful steam technology world.
