, something not quite human is about to awaken. London
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.
Griffinbeing 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 at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has.
this bunch of misfits are so much fun! All different from the rest of society,
they are a family. They will protect each other at all costs. When Emily is
kidnapped, the group will stop at nothing to get her back, especially Sam. The
Sam and Emily romance is so sweet. Sam does not show any emotion, ever. But when
it comes to Emily, he is a pile of goo. He is so protective and sweet.
I really enjoyed the new character Mila. She is a very interesting girl, and I liked watching her grow from a machine to basically a human. I also think Jack and Mila are so cute together and am looking forward to seeing more sparks fly between them.
The Steampunk Chronicles is one of my favorite YA Victorian Steampunk series out there, and I am excited to see how this series is going to end!
