The Clockwork Crow by Catherine Fisher

The Clockwork Crow is an engaging combination of Welsh folklore and clockwork magic. This gothic Christmas tale is a must read for every fan of fairies, frost and mysteries.

Seren Rhys is an orphan who has lost everyone close to her. As she travels to live with her godfather and his family is a small village in Wales, she encounters a strange man who gives her an even stranger package.

When she arrives at the Victorian family home, it is not at all what she had been dreaming of. There is a strange feeling in the house – a secret sadness which she does not understand. With the help of a new, incredibly unusual friend, Seren decides to investigate and is shocked by what she discovers. In her quest to find out the truth, she is surrounded by magic and stories of fairies who control time.

The Clockwork Crow is a gripping tale with a unique, fascinating plot. Readers are compelled to turn the page for “just one more” chapter as they get lost in the chilling story. There is so much more to the  Tylwyth Teg (Welsh fairies) than first meets the eye and I would love to read more stories about these mysterious creatures.

Thank you to Firefly and NetGalley for this wonderful mystery of time, loss, cold and finding a family.
