Product description

Review

Inventive, immersive and entirely unputdownable -- Eithne Farry * Daily Mail * Wildly inventive, full of eeriness and magic, and fiendishly intricate plots * The Times * Pulley combines H Rider Haggard-style historical adventure with bizarre fantasy, but also excels at portraying the emotionally charged interplay of her charming cast * Guardian * A romantic, inventive, wonderfully immersive read * Sunday Express * As intricate as an origami sculpture * Spectator * With Pepperharrow, I think Natasha has outdone herself. The characters have reached iconic status already, and it's so rare to find an author who marries such a sparkling imagination with the storytelling flair of a maestro thriller writer - this was her most unputdownable novel yet and I loved it -- Claire Evans, author of The Fourteenth Letter A Japan that never was, a future lost, ghosts that are not dead, random numbers, clairvoyant Samurai ... not even a partial list of ingredients can do justice to this wonderful cake of a book. Mori may know what to expect, but the reader will not! A lovely blending of steam punk ether science, Japanese historical figures, and a time-defying thriller. -- Robin Hobb Pulley's intricate plot, vibrant setting, entrancing magic, and dynamic ensemble of characters make for an un-put-downable historical fantasy. New readers will be pulled in and series fans will be delighted by this tour de force * Publisher's Weekly * Plotted as intricately as clockwork, this weaves together historical political warfare with electromagnetic science research and magical clairvoyance. The characters are what really makes this sing, though ... I love them all, and would happily read a whole series of their adventures -- Lauren James Praise for The Watchmaker of Filigree Street: 'Ten out of ten * Spectator * Charming ... Elegant plotting, lashings of invention and jump-off-the-page characterisation * Guardian * Intricate, charming and altogether surprising * New York Times * Excellent * Independent on Sunday * Historical fiction, magic realism and elements of gothic fiction combine in this ambitious debut * Irish Times * Delightful, relentlessly charming and deeply moving ... Remarkable * Los Angeles Times *
