Running Like Clockwork: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

The Watchmaker at Filigree Street has been on my shelf for well over a year and I’ve been waiting for the opportune moment to read it. And finally, that time has come (no pun intended).

Set in Victorian London, an era I can soon become weary of, the narration painted a fantastic picture of this steampunk world. I found that rather than becoming tiresome of the intricate details that can often be associated with period drama pieces, these flourishes of character added to the atmosphere that was being created.

The magical nature of Mori pulls you into his world of intricate and mystical clockwork, whilst remaining an enigma and mysterious force. In addition, Katsu, a mechanical octopus, becomes a welcome friend as he appears sporadically throughout the tale.

With it being a mixture of both mystery and magic, love and suspense, this book would be enjoyed by a variety of different people; what more could you ask for?
