Added DiffLines:

* AsTheGoodBookSays: The Clockwork Angels quote a bit of Proverbs 3:5 (as the liner notes point out "as also seen on an In-N-Out milkshake!") during the automaton's proclamations to the city square.


Added DiffLines:

* TheManBehindTheCurtain: While The Watchmaker isn't exactly ''unknown'' to his subjects... his public face is the titular Clockwork Angels, automatons that spill out decrees on The Watchmaker's behalf.


Added DiffLines:

*** Clowns resembling Deke, Leke and Peke are played by the band members in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MC9wjJzd04 shortfilm]] that was played during concert intermissions.


* Transmutation: The Anarchist's ability to harness alchemy to create the seemingly impossible; a diamond infused with human blood, is the origin of his feud with The Watchmaker who he believes stole his achievement.

Added DiffLines:

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Both the Watchmaker and The Anarchist are opposed with each other with vastly different ideals. The Watchmaker a control freak who keeps society under his thumb via a quasi-religious social order with strict dicta for people's personal life with no freewill, and The Anarchist a violent rebel who seeks to spite The Watchmaker by destroying his order. [[spoiler: By the end the protagonist learns to live a life free from The Watchmaker's obsessive control, but doesn't embrace The Anarchist's violence; instead learning that forgiving others and cultivating a charitable legacy is the life fulfillment he needs.]]


* CaliforniaDoubling: the art used in the album liner notes for the desert setting of "Seven Cities of Gold" are photos shot in southern Utah.

* CityOfGold: The protagonist is looking for one in the aptly titled "Seven Cities of Gold" and nearly dies when caught in a snow storm in the desert in the attempt.


* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Ranging from 2 ("Halo Effect") to 8 ("[=BU2B=]").

Added DiffLines:

** The novelization also includes several subtle and not-so-subtle Rush references by plugging in lyrics, song titles, and band member references. (Three clowns Owen meets at the carnival are called [[spoiler: Deke, Leke, and Peke. Rush's nicknames are Dirk (Geddy), Lerxst (Alex), and Pratt (Neil).]] Doesn't help that the audiobook version is read by Neil himself. Something about Neil reading these references in his [[MostWonderfulSound deep, booming voice]] is adorable.
