Kurzbeschreibung

28. Mai 2013 Harlequin Teen
In 1897 London, sometihng not quite human is about to awaken

When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends' lives.

With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him…and for Griffin.

Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine.

To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation—an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance of triumph, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has….

Spoiler Warning for the events of the first two books in the series! The books do cover each a finished story, but follow and contribute to an overall story arc. So especially the "Villain"- and relationship-themes will be spoiled if you read the books out of order. Since "The girl in the steel corsett" for me is the best of the books anyway, I recommend to start there.

Review

I tried to find an alterantive synopsis-text, but gave up after searching the internet for nearly an hour. But then, the one and only given summary tells the content fairly well.
As always, parts of the story are told by Finley, the steel-corsett girl, in 3rd person POV. But for a large part, this is Emily's story as well, so she shares the POV - and there is another, rather peculiar, POV which I won't spoil.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Reading the Paranormal Review 3. Juni 2013
Von Kelly Rubidoux - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My soft spot for Steampunk-y goodness continues unabated! This time around, we have resident techno-touch Emily who has fallen into a bad situation and needs the support of her friends/family to help her out of it. Since the idea that family is more than blood is one thing I like to touch upon whenever it crops up, I'm going on record as saying that the entire dynamic of the group is wickedly fun. They fight but they don't hesitate to spring into action to support one another when the chips are down. They're still learning the ins and outs of having people to rely on -- all of them, from Griffin to Sam to Finley, struggle with leaning on others. While there were times I wanted to give them a good shake and tell them to accept help, I can understand where they were coming from.

I do like that Sam and Emily have a relationship that has been building slowly through the books. They had things to work through before they could reach a point where they were comfortable being together but the framework was there. The downside is that those things the had to work through included what Emily did to Sam to save his life and Sam's aversion to sharing his feelings. Now worries, folks. They manage.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finley also have some relationship issues to iron out (sharing is caring, Griffin!) and Jasper hasn't quite integrated into their little family. Oh, and then there's Jack Dandy. Jack.Dandy. I like the guy. I'm hoping that events in this book bear fruit in the future because Jack is a fun character and I'd love to see more of him.

A gross bad guy, a wicked smart girl, a family made up of misfits and geniuses... did I mention the gross bad guy part? Because he's really gross. In a good, shiver-inducing sort of way.

What I Liked:

I honestly cannot believe just how much I absolutely LOVED this book. I read The Girl in the Steel Corset, the first book a few years ago (i.e., a really long time ago, in which I don't remember much of what happened). I was not impressed with the first book. I gave it just about three stars - but on the low end of three stars. It was somewhat boring, very slow-paced, and only minimally interesting.

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, the second book, was better. There was more action, a faster pace to the story, and, well, MORE. I liked that book so much more than the first book, and I gave it four stars.

This book was AMAZING. I almost can't believe that this book is in the same series as the first book. This book is so different from the first book. Things actually happen! There is more characterization! I can finally see the underlying plot that connects the books! I honestly thought this series was more of a companion series, and not a continuation series.

I was so impressed by the plot! It felt like action or scheming or SOMETHING was happening, page by page. I found the story easy to follow, despite the much faster pace. The plot took twists and turns and made me guess right until the end.

When I said characterization happened, I meant it. This book is "Emily's" book, so we get to see more of Emily and transitively, more of Sam. I liked finally being able to get into the Irish girl's head, and understanding her thoughts. Emily is no longer a mystery to readers. I really like her! And I like the pair of Emily and Sam even more now.

All of the characters seem to undergo some characterization. By the end, Griffin is more open about what is happening to him, Finley is more caring towards everyone, and Jack is more caring to certain people, and less invasive to others.

I think one of the biggest reasons why I loved this book so much more than the first book and the second book is the romance. Emily and Sam are truly a couple now (as if there were any doubts). But Finley and Griffin! Despite Griffin's secretiveness, Finley is consistent and keeps harrowing away at his walls. They FINALLY do stuff! I'm so happy to see their relationship take a new level.

The scenes with Finley and Griffin almost getting close, but get interrupted, are my FAVORITE. It always seems to be Sam barging in at the wrong moment. But I love those scenes! I love Griffin even more (despite his secrecy), and I compliment Finley on her persistence.

The plot and the ending of this book are so well written. I am so happy that I stuck with this series, because now I cannot wait to read the next book, The Girl with the Wind-Up Heart!

What I Did Not Like:

There really isn't much I can say here. I know, I am as shocked as you are! I didn't think I would like this book at all, but instead, I loved it so much!

Would I Recommend It:

YES YES YES! If you've already started the series, stick with it! You may not have liked the first and/or second book (or maybe you did!), but trust me when I say that you will LOVE this one! I hope you do!

Rating:

5 stars - I keep saying it is rare for me to give a book five stars, but here I am giving books five stars left and right! It seems like this year has some amazing books, and I am thrilled to be reading books that I love!

4.0 von 5 Sternen delivers the most romantic tale of the series thus far. 30. Mai 2013
Von kimbacaffeinate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
We are back in 1987 London after our adventure in America and something is wrong with Griffin. Jack shares some interesting and disturbing news about a crate he delivered and Emily is kidnapped by automations. The tale that unfolds was riveting as we face danger, see relationships develop and face our nemesis the Machinist once again.

While all of Cross's characters are fleshed out this tale gives us the most romantic developments to date and we see character growth in quite a few characters. Griffin the big lug is struggling with the Aether and of course keeps it all to himself causing Jayne to feel cut off from him and unsure where she stands. Griffin really carries the weight of the world and fate of his friends on his shoulders and watching him open up and expose himself was delightful. We see growth in Jayne as she takes chances, faces danger, and makes personal demands. It was delightful to watch. Sam and Emily are two of my favorite and tormented characters. There is a lot of self discovery and confessions which I loved. Their interactions had me giggling one moment and sighing the next. Jasper is still a character we do not really know all that well, and I am anxious for his story to be revealed. Jack Dandy is back and ooh baby he can call me poppet anytime. Perhaps the most mysterious character in the series we see a softer side of him and questions are raised about his true identity. I want to peel back all of his layers and expose him and look forward to what Cross reveals next. We meet a new character and I adore her and hope she has a larger role in future novels. Leonardo Garibaldi aka the Machinist and his rogue automations are back and creepier than ever. Cross brings them all to life making the danger real.

From the very first page Cross allowed me to slip into the world she has created immediately drawing me into the story and the characters I have come to love. Her descriptive writing style brings the automations and steampunk gadgets to life making for some heart stopping action. This was fast paced and before I knew it I'd finished the tale. I loved the banter between the characters and found the danger Emily faced to be fascinating and cleverly done. Cross mixes a little paranormal into her steampunk that is clever and I enjoyed the thread regarding Griffin and his struggles with it. The climatic ending was suspenseful and I felt Cross gave me a panoramic view of the events as they unfolded. The author has a vivid imaginations that she seamlessly conveys into the pages of her novels from the gadgets to the characters facial expressions. I am looking forward to continuing this story and like the way the overall ARC is progressing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Steampunk and action 29. Mai 2013
Von Jessie Potts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
What it's about: I love steampunk, and Kady Cross' Steampunk Chronicles are really great and straddle the urban fantasy and YA/NA genres. This is the third book and centers on the mechanical genius Emily, who has been kidnapped. We also have Griffin, Finely, Jack Dandy and Sam. The setting is the mysterious and gas-lit streets of the mortal world and the scary shadowy Aether world, filled with alleys, dark corners and automatons.

Why you should read it: This entire series is stellar and has captured alternative London perfectly. I also found out that there are two novellas: The Strange Case of Finely Jayne and The Dark Discovery of Jack Dandy. I am downloading those as we speak. If you are a fan of steampunk, new to the genre, or just love butt-kicking heroines and mechanical creations, I urge you to pick up the first two books in the series, The Girl in the Steel Corset and The Girl in the Clockwork Collar. It's one of my favorite steampunk series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great blend of historical/steampunk elements, and there's a fun cast of characters! 28. Mai 2013
Von Kaitlyn (The Bookworm) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
3.5 stars.

The Girl with the Iron Touch is a charming book that continues the story of Finley, Griffin, Sam, and Emily. I loved it! I've really enjoyed the mixture of steampunk and historical aspects in this series. Kady Cross is so talented at creating imaginative stories with a great cast of characters.

I was so excited that this story focuses on Emily a lot. She's been one of my favorite characters in this series - she's sweet and sassy at the same time, and I like how clever she is with machinery. I loved her in this one; especially the way she's always caring and levelheaded. And the romance between her and Sam is adorable!

Besides Emily, we also get lots of Finley and Griffin. In this book, they finally start forming a stronger relationship and commit to each other. It is so refreshing that their romance, which begins in the first book, takes a realistic amount of time to develop. I did get a little annoyed at times with the slight hints of a love triangle between Finley, Griffin, and Jack, but thankfully it doesn't take up too much of the story.

The plot is exciting and held my interest. I was fascinated by the steampunk/sci-fi elements of the story, it's just flat-out fun to read about. The storyline does lag a bit in some parts, but other than that it's mostly a quick read. I also like how the author handles all the different POVs; it never feels thrown together. I like that all the different characters are easy to keep track of.

If you haven't started this series yet, I'd recommend it for fans of steampunk and/or historical fiction looking for a quick, fun read! I've enjoyed reading about these characters and their exciting adventures. Great series!
