The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross (Steampunk Chronicles #2)
In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling – or dangerous.
Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her “straynge band of mysfits” have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him…for the life of the girl Jasper loves.
One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei’s neck tightens. And tightens. From Goodreads.
Oh wow, this one was even better then that last book by Kady!!! I loved that Finley was willing to go to the extremes to help out Jasper. I loved that Griffin felt so protective of her and didn’t want her to go to the extremes that she did. Honestly there was so much of this book that I loved very much.
When Griffin got hurt so badly and Finley left Dalton’s side to be by his side, I swear I thought my heart might break a little bit. I was worried that Griffin might be really hurt, like badly. I still want to know what the dark thing was but I have some thoughts on that.
I loved that we got to know more about Jasper and what he did to make sure that Mei was okay. I thought it was so romantic but in the end she totally didn’t deserve his love. I was so upset that I teared up about it. Once again, karma did get her back. Or at least I guess Griffin got her back for Jasper.
I felt like the whole book was one adventure after another, no stopping to catch your breath. At the same time they were on a mission to save Jasper and Jasper was on a mission to save Mei. Never a dull moment that is for sure and the good guys always win but there was some things that happened that none of them expected.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
