Review:

"[An] assured and absorbing debut ... Immensely pleasurable reading. Ms. Pulley's prose is strong and energetic, with a wry edge, and even the most minor characters are drawn precisely ... The Watchmaker of Filigree Street might be compared to one of Mori's clockwork birds: intricate, charming and altogether surprising" ­ New York Times,
Editors Choice

"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
