Product description


"A hugely entertaining read...comparisons to Neil Stephenson and Susanna Clarke are only very slightly premature. As with the finest timepiece, The Emperor of All Things is ultimately a rather beautiful thing." (Independent on Sunday)

"An excitingly and brilliantly realised, poetically written tale of magic, subterfuge and intrigue. Not to mention clocks." (SFFWORLD)

"Witcover conjuers an enlightenment-punk vision of England, before taking detours to the Alps, subterranean London and the utterly fantastic. ****" (SFX)

"Vividly evokes an authentically dangerous, dirty and smelly 18th century London Henry Fielding would recognize. . . a real page-turner which had me gripped" (HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW)

"Witcover's prose is playful yet persuasive...unrestrained by the conventions of any one genre...segueing seamlessly from wonder, whimsy and conspiracy to intrigue, espionage and action...thrilling." (TOR.COM)

Book Description

In a reimagined 18th-century, England is at war with France and the race is on to track down a sinister time-piece - a pocket watch with the power to alter the course of history...and perhaps time itself - a thrilling historical fantasy that should strike a chord with readers of Susanna Clarke, Phillip Pullman and Neal Stephenson.
