The Girl with the Windup Heart was a successful yet predictable finish to the Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross. With two storylines, all of our favorite characters are present as Cross weaved danger, humor and romantic moments into a steampunk-filled finale.
Welcome to Coffee Pot Reviews! These are short and sweet reviews done in the length of time it takes my coffee pot to brew! I have a yummy adult book and a YA novella to share with you. *Adult books contain mature content and are not intended for readers under 18 years of age.* I’ve got iced mocha coffee so grab a cup and enjoy!
I remember when I picked up the novella The Strange Case of Jayne Finley back in 2011 and fell in the love with the quirky character and Kady Cross’s version of steampunk and suspense. It’s been a love affair ever since and each novel adds more depth to the characters as it delivers an action packed tale. The Girl with the Steel Touch delivers the most romantic tale of the series thus far. We see character and relationship growth all while fighting our favorite nemesis. I was captivated from page one and cannot wait for the next book in this series.
The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is the second book in the Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross, and the third about protagonist Finley Jayne. This time we cross the Atlantic to rescue Jasper. Cross delivers a plot filled with suspense, a dash of romance, history, awesome characters and amazing gadgetry. I love the steampunk genre and Cross has earned herself a permanent place on my bookshelf. If you have not read The Girl in the Steel Corset,(click title to see review) I strongly advise you to stop reading, as this review might contain spoilers regarding the first novel.
