The Porcelain Maker discovers Child trespassing but, amused by her audacity, he offers her the chance to stay. He’s a lonely man, kept company only by his alchemically-powered automata, and he and Child form an unlikely friendship.
Shut off from the world beyond the wall, Child wants or needs for nothing as the Porcelain Maker heaps affection and luxury upon her, indulging her like a daughter. In return, she can do as she pleases, except for one command, one rule that must never be broken, she must not look behind the workshop door.
The connection between the two characters is brilliant and is one of the high points of the book. Read’s character driven honest and realistic scripting of the story will have readers on the edge of their seats and keep them invested in the characters till the end.
Now onto Wildgoose’s art. It’s just breath taking. I love how he visually depicts the world through Child’s eyes. His artwork also shines through with the other characters.
Porcelain is an amazing tale that takes readers on a journey that they’ll never forget. The novel arrives in the U.S. in next month and it’s definitely a buy.
