The Clockmaker by Ceri Williams; Drew Neary - #BOOKREVIEW #ARC
An amazing Gothic thriller set in the Scotland Highlands with cinematic type prose that hooked from the beginning.
I enjoy any story about an old house with a secret and a touch of a supernatural element and what’s great about this book is that its part of a trilogy. So although you end this book with some satisfaction, you are left with a few questions, making it hard to not anticipate the next two books!
The Clockmaker waits for you...
A gripping supernatural novel set in post-blitz Scotland, the first of a planned trilogy.
“No man in this world may boast of his might, he is awake in the morning and dead at night.”
Widowed in World War 2, Annette and her young son face a completely different life as they exchange the devastation of post-blitz London for the slow pace of a small village. The house they have inherited is old, its bones still settling, creaking noises in the dead of night and the murmur of scritch-scritch in the walls. Located outside the village of Lochnagar, it’s been empty for many years – and for good reason.
The unfolding of how the Clockmaker made his plans, his meticulous preparations and macabre creations, all builds up to a series of gruesome, horrific murders. These have just one end in view: his release from that which has held him captive for centuries.
A chilling supernatural novel with characters you’ll come to care for, The Clockmaker will interest anyone who fears the dark – and what might lie in the shadows...
A Note From the Publisher
Ceri Williams has always loved language, and after a 5 year stint in advertising and journalism, now writes supernatural horror and fantasy. The Clockmaker is their first book and forms part of a trilogy. Drew Neary became interested in history, science fiction/fantasy and conspiracy theories in his teenage years. This prompted him to write short stories over the years.
