The watchmaker of Filigree Street

1883. Thaniel Steepleton returns home to his tiny London apartment to find a gold pocket watch on his pillow. Six months later, the mysterious timepiece saves his life, drawing him away from a blast that destroys Scotland Yard. At last, he goes in search of its maker, Keita Mori, a kind, lonely immigrant from Japan. Although Mori seems harmless, a chain of unexplainable events soon suggests he must be hiding something. When Grace Carrow, an Oxford physicist, unwittingly interferes, Thaniel is torn between opposing loyalties.

Review

A story for the quiet gays. One of the sweetest gay love stories I've ever read, with prose so dense that it almost lost me in the beginning. But once I got a hold of it, I was IN. Time travel shenanigans, steampunk and composure cracking ahead!

It took me a while to seep into the story, but once I did and the characters had grabbed hold of me, I couldn't damn well put the thing down. My heart is hurting in that particular way it hasn't done in a long while, where I'm mourning something being over. I want to visit Mori, and Thaniel, and Grace and Matsumoto again. I miss them. I miss them so much.
