Review and Giveaway- Girl in the Clockwork Collar

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar

By, Kady Cross
Sequel to Girl in the Steel Corset
Available Now

Goodreads Summary:
In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous. 

Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves. 

One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens

Can I just say I LOVE this series!!!!  I am so in love with Finley and Griffin that I can't believe I went through a whole year waiting for this sequel! There will be mild spoilers for the first book Girl in the Steel Corset so you've been warned.

Our quartet of friends, Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily are after Jasper, determined to find the truth about Jasper.  Did he kill a man in cold blood? Is their friend capable of murder? They are determined to find out. So without a plan, they fly off in Griffin's own personal dirigible to New York City. They stay at the Waldorf Astoria where Finley has flowers waiting for her from, guess who? And of course Griffin is jealous. I thought , God if this book goes back and forth like the last one about their feelings for each other, I may not be able to stand it. But, Finley makes and interesting comparison about her being Cinderella and Griffin the prince but then they aren't really like that at all. She just doesn't know where she stands. Circumstances in this one make them each take a stand in this one.

Sam and Emily are their usual selves though they took a back seat a little more in this book. Finley is her usual bad a** self and plays a big role in this one. But she also sees the error of her ways when it comes to her darker side and evil. 

Set against the backdrop of an alternate New York City in the late 19th century, this novel delivers everything it promises and more. The ending was everything I wanted! I think this novel was even better than the first and I absolutely loved the first one! I hope Kady Cross continues to write this series for several more novels.

Because I accidentally ordered two copies of the novel, I am offering a hardback copy of the novel to one person in the United States. Just fill out the form below. You must be at least 13 years old.

  1. I really loved this book, even more than the first one as well! It just took everything I liked and escalated it to be even better. While originally I was projecting trilogy, I would love for Cross to continue the series even beyond that as I think there is still story to tell (maybe 5 books, not to be too greedy?)

    1. Yeah, I'd like it to go past three books. Three is too fast for Finley and Griffin to get together as Finley is only 16 and he is only 18. Five sounds good though if she wants to do more that's okay with me! I just love this cast of characters!

  15. I think I have to say Finley! Though Jasper is a lot of fun as well.

    So glad you loved it! I was worried there would be a lot of back and forth with the romance too but was surprised it actually all went pretty well.
