Review

It's rarely I come across a book that astounds me. The Clockwork Girl byAnna Mazzola is one such book. Engrossing plot, vivid characters, attention to historical detail, and above all the beauty of its prose. It is breathtakingly good ― Abir Mukherjee

This book has everything I love. A deliciously dark historical novel of thrilling originality. Immensely clever and entertaining, this is a dazzling gothic novel where science, sin and subterfuge are as intricately rendered as the workings of a clock ―
Essie Fox

Evocative, chilling, compelling. Anna Mazzola brings 18th Century Paris vividly to life in all its stinking, disease-ridden brutality. Tremendous ―
Rachel Rhys/Tammy Cohen

The Clockwork Girl instantly draws you in, immersing the reader in a Paris of filth and greed, money and sin. Madeleine is a clever, captivating guide to this world, her story dark and bewitching. I loved it

Rarely have I been so utterly swept away by the opening pages of a novel as I was with
The Clockwork Girl by Anna Mazzola - this book hooked me in and didn't let go. 1750 Paris was exquisitely wrought, from the freezing and fetid underbelly of the back streets and brothels to the glittering decadence of Versailles. This intricate and twisting story kept me guessing until the end. An absolute masterpiece! ― Jennifer Saint

Unbelievably immersive - from the first page you are plunged into 18th century Paris and you won't want to leave. It is a gripping, gothic tale... three unforgettable women caught in a web of intrigue and murders. You really won't want to miss this. ―
Elodie Harper

Deliciously creepy, alive with the rustling silks, rotten smells and lethal egos of a divided Paris. Loved it ―
Sarah Hilary

'Anna Mazzola's new novel is a macabre tale of social upheaval and aristocratic skullduggery set against a beautifully evoked 1750s Paris. Mazzola immerses us in the political intrigues of the period, weaving a dark tale of vanished children, an obsessive genius, and courtly machinations. Told through the voices of three very differing women this is another accomplished slice of historical noir from a sure-footed exponent of the genre ―
Vaseem Khan

A superb historical novel set in a brilliantly evoked 18th century Paris,
The Clockwork Girl will delight and enthral and leave you wanting more ― William Ryan

Drawing you into 18th century Paris from the very first page, this book is a dark delight. Anna is uniquely amazing at letting you into her characters' heads & hearts, so you carry on thinking about them long after you stop reading... A Gothic gem ―
Beth Underdown

A treat in store for lovers of historical fiction next March.
The Clockwork Girl is vivid & meticulously detailed. From the filth of Paris to the surprisingly squalid salons of Versailles in 1750, Anna Mazzola has crafted this dark jewel of a novel with the precision of a watchmaker...Glittering macabre ― Kate Griffin

Spellbinding, gripping, immersive and deliciously gothic, I was happy to lose a whole weekend to THE CLOCKWORK GIRL. Beautiful prose brings the smells of 18th century Paris to life so vividly that you almost read the book with a scented handkerchief under your nose. No one gets under history's skin like Anna Mazzola. ―
ERIN KELLY

A chilling tale ―
