The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
Jasper loves Mei and is trying to save her from Dalton. He's in for a big surprise...
Net Galley and Harlequin Teen allowed me to download an ebook of this story for review (thank you). It will be published May 29th.
If you haven't read the first in the series, I'd recommend you do. I like this series a lot and hope there will be more coming. The first book is titled: The Girl in the Steel Corset. This is a steampunk series set in 1897. The first book is set in England, the second is set in New York, USA.
All of Ms. Cross' characters are tough, smart and are part-mechanical or have paranormal powers. They heal fast, are a tight team and specialize in trying to right wrongs. They fight impossible things and don't escape unscathed, but the emotional toll is the worst. And guilt is hard to handle, too, even if it really wasn't your fault.
This is an action packed adventure that keeps you turning pages and makes you anxious to see what will happen next. I would expect younger readers will really enjoy the story; I sure did!
I'm looking forward to another book in this series where I can watch how their story moves forward and if the the shattered pieces at the end of the story can be healed.
If you want a good fantasy steampunk adventure, here you go! Why not get a copy and see what you think of it?
