The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

By Natasha Pulley

This novel is a highly recommended bestseller. However it was a long time before I read it as I am not someone who enjoys fantasy. However once I started reading it I loved it.

It is enchanting and sweeps the reader into a magical Victorian London inhabited by a clockwork octopus (this is one of the fantasies-he is full of mischief) and a mysterious watchmaker who isn’t all we think he is.

This novel in a foggy, atmospheric London is beguiling. One I will re-read.
