Product Description

Tick tock! Tick tock! Some stories are like that. Once you’ve wound them up, nothing will stop them…

A tormented apprentice clock-maker, a deadly mechanical knight in armour – and the sinister Dr Kalmenius, whom some say is the devil… Wind up these characters, fit them into a story on a cold winter’s evening with the snow swirling down, and suddenly life and the story begin to merge in a peculiarly macabre – and unstoppable – way. Almost like clockwork… Like a strange and wonderful machine, this intricate tale cleverly brings its own cogs together to recreate what happened in a little German town one dark long-ago night…

“For those who want to read spooky stories this winter in front of a flickering fire, this story could hardly be bettered.” Independent

“Deeply satisfying and deserves to become a classic.” TES

    Suspensive, creepy and unique, I loved it!!! We started reading it a school, but when I got home I downloaded it and read it in one day. Full of cliffhangers, I definitely recommend it for lovers of suspense.

    This is unquestionably one of those books that you just can’t put down. With a cliff-hanger on every page, the suspense is at times, almost unbearable. Absolutely remarkable.

    It is so interesting yet slightly Gothic and scary at the same time! A very original storyline. Amazing.

    I quite liked this book! At times it was a bit confusing but I was quite a bit younger when I read it so maybe that’s why!! I think you should read this!!
