The Girl with the Iron Touch (Steampunk Chronicles #3)
by Kady Cross
Review: These books are cool reads because each, like the cover, are themed with the plot of surrounding one character. In which this book was about the ever talented. Emily, who in her own right is brilliant with anything with screws. Though this book was darker then the rest, which also seems to be a theme of Cross’s, did in fact help with the backgrounds of characters that we did not know much of before. The plot also shows different sides and how far the characters will actually go. Which means that Emily is by far the scariest of the group. The author was able to add new characters into the mix even if they were not needed yet. But they were great in helping out and revealing sides of darker characters then we have seen before. Which leads me to think that the next book might be better then the 3 before it.

3 out of 5 stars.
384 pages.
Young adult.

Summary: 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…
