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…

In The Girl with the Iron Touch Kady Cross takes us back in time, sort of.
What I liked: I enjoyed reading The Girl with the Iron Touch. Emily was one of my favorite characters in the books I’d already read plus, there is just something enchanting about how she’s the go-to person for all things scientific in their group.
This book is terrific! It’s romantic, mysterious adventure that pulls together a great group of friends. Don’t miss this installment in the Steampunk Chronicles.
One of my favorite things about this brand of steampunk, I can’t say this about writings other than those of Kady Cross, is that there is an alluring mix of actual history meshed in with newer inventions, paranormal-ish events, and a save-the-world attitude that crosses so many genres I can’t imagine anyone would dislike this series!
What I didn’t like: While the story is fun and interesting it wasn’t riveting, something I’ve come to expect from Ms. Cross.
