Product description

Review

An assured and absorbing debut . Immensely pleasurable reading. Ms Pulley's prose is strong and energetic, with a wry edge . The Watchmaker of Filigree Street might be compared to one of Mori's clockwork birds: intricate, charming and altogether surprising (Helene Wecker New York Times, Editors Choice)

Ten out of ten (Spectator)

Impressively competent: steam-punk meets Zuleika Dobson (Michèle Roberts, author of Daughters of the House)

Forget steampunk. Welcome to tickpunk . Part Susanna Clarke, part Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is a delightful read that benefits from wonderfully colourful characters and a lyrical prose style full of esoteric detail . A compelling read (SFX Magazine)

A charming, quirky, clever tale, filled with intricate detail, and a plot that feels as deftly crafted as a precision timepiece (Joanne Harris)

Rare and precious . Humour, wit, mystery and danger are threaded through the book in musical measure. It dances between genres and makes partners of several . Pulley's capacity for making antagonists out of fully realized and sympathetic characters is impressive, as is her ability to keep one guessing as the plot ticks along. There's nothing quite like putting down a delightful, relentlessly charming and deeply moving book and then finding out it's the authors first . A remarkable debut (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

Historical fiction, magic realism and elements of gothic fiction combine in this ambitious debut ... This is accomplished writing from Natasha Pulley, whose imagination shines through (Irish Times)

Enchanting . Amid this thriller-like plot, Pulley raises thought-provoking questions about free will, fate and identity - making for a rich brew of historical fantasy, philosophy and emotion (Washington Post)

Elegantly composed, atmospheric and wholly compelling . Pulley's style is reminiscent of filigree: a decorative work of fine strands woven together into a delicate tracery, which underpins the overarching plot. With music and time at the heart of this intriguing novel, the skilfully rendered interplay speaks volumes about the talent and imagination at work behind such an intricately beautiful piece of writing. A stunning debut by a promising new voice (The Lady, Book of the Month)

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street breaks the mould . Genre-busting book of extraordinary imagination . The book is as elaborate as its title suggests, but the multiple plots tick along like clockwork . Exceptionally inventive and uniquely clear-headed, this is speculative fiction as it should be (Country Life)
