This book is a sequel to The Watchmaker of Filigree Street, which I read a few years ago. I was drawn to its beautiful, ornate cover and kept intrigued by the mysterious pocket watch and mechanical octopus. The cover of this book is not as uniquely textured but still beautiful!
Since there were a few years between books, it took me a few chapters to get re-orientated. I love how it is written from different perspectives and times but I really needed to pay attention with this storyline. It is not a beach read.
If you like reading thrillers about clairvoyance, family, ghosts, science, and politics, this is the book for you!
Thank you Natasha Pulley for writing about such rich characters and complicated relationships, all while involving science and paranormal. This was such a satisfying read and I enjoyed every minute of it!
