A mysterious gothic Christmas tale set in a frost-bound Victorian country mansion. When orphaned Seren Rees is given a mysterious package by a strange and frightened man on her way to her new home, she reluctantly takes it with her. But what is in the parcel and who are the Family who must not be spoken of


This was a fiction book I liked the person seren the best as she was determined to do the the right thing no matter the consequences. I felt that clockwork crow was not a suitable title for this story as seren did most of the work

I liked this book because it’s a book exhibits the life of an orphan who is being adopted by a royal family. The palace or castle is named Plas-Y-Fran. It’s a deserted castle with huge hall ways,crea my, floor border and extreme mystery. She encounters a strange looking man at a Victorian station, looking tensed at the waiting hall. All of a sudden she is given a newspaper parcel and is temporarily asked to taken care of it. She finds a strange looking unassembled clockwork system. The story is all about Serene the orphan, bringing back the peace, happiness and Harmony to the castle. The authors imagination is a remarkable one. Anyone liking fantasy would love to read this book.

It was a really gripping tale of friends and adventure . It’s definitely one to read over and over and had me on the edge of my seat. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery.

I liked this book because Seren had no idea that she was going to save her own stepbrother with the crow in the parcel and a snow globe.
