Review: The watchmaker of Filigree Street

4/5 – Very good

I thought this was a lovely read and one that I would recommend. It’s one of those that you read for a little while, enchanted and then the plot deepens and you realise that there is another layer (and more layers) which make it difficult to put down. It’s almost best not to put it down since you need to keep alert as the story moves around and the details come at you thick and fast.

It is wonderfully evocative of the time and the place and the characters are quite alive (along with the mechanical creatures). It made me stop and gasp a couple of times with suprises!

This book is a “keeper” which is my way of deciding if it stays on my bookshelf or not, would I read it again? Oh yes!
