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.

Synopsis [Goodreads.com]

In 1897 London, something 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, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily. 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 at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has…

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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen the second book is super uncomfortable and racist 19. Juli 2016
Von Christine Humphrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book at the same time as the second book in the series, because the first hit all my fluff buttons, even if it was a little cliche. Unfortunately, the second book is super uncomfortable and racist, and had I not already purchased this one, I wouldn't have read it. This book is "better" in that it doesn't have any diversity to rely on harmful stereotypes, but it still doesn't meet the potential of the first book.

It's a great world, interesting concept (even if it does boil down to Steampunk X-Men), and has generally likable characters. Unfortunately, the characters are often too likable, and if they're not, another narrative perspective comes along and tells us why we should like them, even if they're being annoying.

The characters do exhibit signs of growth though, and Emily does take over a larger part of the book. Unfortunately, we're only teased with bits and pieces of Emily's past, enough to make her a Strong Female Character. The ultimate focus is still on Finley and Griffin, though Griffin is Keeping Secrets from Finley and the reader as well, since his perspective isn't shows like in previous books. While the pairing does hit a lot of my fluff buttons, just like it did in the first book, I wanted to see more evolution of their relationship beyond "powerful feelings" they have for each other. We're constantly told how much they make the other's stomach flip and heart beat faster, but we're shown so little interaction, to really believe it.

I still haven't decided if I'll finish out the series. I hate not knowing endings, especially since I'm 3/4 finished but I really can't get past the sneaky Asian slut of the last book. Said villain does make an appearance here, but in no way redeems her character, and it's hard to see how such a thing would even be possible.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing Addition to a Great Steampunk Series 22. Juni 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This series is still one of the best examples of steampunk novels to date (The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare being the other)! Kady Cross has managed to wow me once again, and I can't wait to see what comes next. The one thing I loved about this book was the fact that we were invited into the life of Emily, who is a main character in the previous books, but is never brought to the forefront POV-wise. We find out a lot more about Emily, from her backstory to just how her mind works, and I loved every minute of it. Emily was always one of my favorites, and immediately stood out in the first novel, so I was excited to read more about her. While the storyline is similar to the first two books, it is still unique to this novel, and is sure to blow any fan of the series away. The novel is well-paced, and I couldn't put it down. The story flies by, and the next thing you know, it's the end of the story and you want the next one!

A lot of things happen in this novel, but Ms. Cross's writing is so spectacular that the story is never overwhelming or confusing. There are plenty of action scenes that are extremely well written, but there is also a great deal of romance. I loved being able to have a glimpse into Emily and Sam's love, and I can't wait to read more about it. While a lot of stories could be bogged down with romance, Kady Cross never wavers from the plot. The romance is mentioned, and it's always a thought in the reader's mind, but that doesn't stop the plot from charging ahead and sweeping you into a fantastical world that you never want to leave.

The Machinist returns in this novel, and I must say, he is even creepier/scarier than before. This novel was definitely unpredictable, and there were so many twists and turns you never see coming. The ever-lovable Jack Dandy makes several appearances, but I wish he was in the story just a little bit more. Ms. Cross is releasing a novella about Jack Dandy, and I'll be one of the first to snatch that story up!

Throughout this novel, you can tell how much research and ingenuity Kady Cross has when writing. The world and character building is fantastic, and I sincerely hope that this isn't the last in the series. I can't wait to read more about Finely and crew!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fun, enchanting and incredibly entertaining addition to the series 6. Juni 2013
Von Fiktshun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is the utterly enchanting and wildly entertaining third installment in author Kady Cross' Steampunk Chronicles. With its charming characters, fascinating inventions and imaginative storyline, this book will take readers on an exciting, if at times chilling, adventure.

Told from multiple points of view, readers will be privy to all the action, danger, romance and surprise twists the characters experience, making for an even more thrilling read. And it gives readers the edge when other characters are forced to remain in the dark.

After returning to London, things seem to be getting back to normal for everybody except Griffin. The connection he made with the Aether in New York has continued to plague him, making him withdraw from everyone, including Finley. And after what happened between them during their travels, she is not willing to stand idly by and do nothing.

But when Jack Dandy stops by mentioning a mysterious shipment containing a rather unusual automaton, trying to solve Griffin's problems will have to wait. Because if someone is attempting to revive The Machinist's work, they'll have to find out who it is and stop them before things progress too far and it becomes too late to stop them at all.

Author Kady Cross has written yet another captivating story in her already delightful series. With a new threat, a new character and the unexpected return of a few characters, this third book in the series offers an even more riveting adventure than the last.

The author keeps readers engaged with her lovable characters, her fantastical creations, the easy flow to her writing, and a plot that is filled with danger, suspense, fiendish schemes, murderous spirits and a touch of romance.

THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH moves the plot forward, answers a few burning questions, delivers two heart-warming love stories, reveals that not everything may be as it seems as regards one character and that there are things yet to be uncovered about another. It adds in an element of the unknown with the introduction of a new character and uncovers the shocking and gruesome plans of an existing one.

All of which will keep readers riveted to the story, keep them in suspense once the mystery presents itself and keep them wondering how it will all end and whether everyone will be able to reach that end unscathed.

THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is a must for fans of this series and for readers who enjoy a Victorian Era setting infused with steam-powered inventions, fierce, witty and incredibly likable heroines and charming, charismatic and incredibly stubborn heroes, and for readers who like to experience their stories from multiple perspectives or those who simply enjoy a fun, clever and exciting read.

NOTE: This review is based on an eARC received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
4.0 von 5 Sternen More from Emily and Finley's point of view, a lot more romance, great action, Another WIN! 4. Juni 2013
Von Jill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
All the old characters are back with the addition of some new ones. Can't say who or it would ruin the book. I will say that I did like getting into Emily's head a little more. She's always seemed a bit untouchable before. But it was great getting to know what happened to her to shape her into who she is now. Though we got to see into Finley's head more, I almost didn't like it. She was too girly. Don't get me wrong, I love her and Griffin together and I loved where the story line went with them, but it seemed like they changed places with Griffin being more manly and Finley being much more worried with matters of the heart. I suppose that's how it should be, but not what I'm used to from Finley. Her kick a**edness was missing.

The story was great! Action packed and I was certainly guessing until the last possible moment as to how things would work out. I'm still worried for my favorite characters. Their arch nemesis can still get at them and destroy everything and I can't see how they are going to protect themselves now. As I stated above, I loved seeing into the mind of Emily and getting her back story and I did enjoy Finley's frustration at Griffin's aloofness. I just expected her to go beat Sam up rather than pout about it. The new machines and automatons and weapons introduced added to the depth of the steampunk layers that have been building throughout the series.

I highly recommend this series to fans of the other books in the series, to people just venturing into Steampunk, YA lovers, and Alt/Historical fiction. There is some romance and some Victorian talk about sex, more rather implied than stated.

I received a copy of the digital advanced reader's copy of this novel from the publisher for review. This did not affect my opinion of the novel or my review in any way.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lacking Tension 13. September 2013
Von DTM125 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
For all that the book revolves around one of their own being taken, potentially by a madman who swore revenge on all of them, this book surprisingly lacks tension. It was almost casual how the characters approached Emily's kidnapping and how they were going to rescue her, and I felt that similar to the readers, the characters knew that they would save their friend and the day so why feel too strained by the situation. This feeling is only heightened by the way Finley's and Griffin's relationship develops during the plot.

I thought this series started off great, but with each addition I feel that the story is losing its spark and direction. The next book may be my last if it is as subpar as this one.
