The girl with the iron touch - Review

The steampunk chronicles book three
Available now

What's it about?
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.
My review
The girl with the iron touch is the most recent and most thrilling novel in this brilliant series. The whole gang is back together and back in London and we find ourselves back in the main storyline, feeling like we'd never left. However everything isn't perfect, Griffin is haunted from recent events and Sam and Emily are trying to define their relationship while Finley is wondering if she even has one with Griffin.
It's an intense addition to the series which continues to explore the character relationships while simultaneously taking us on a mysterious and exciting adventure.
I am really enjoying the world that the author is building and I love everything about it and all the characters she's created. One in particular I'd like to mention is Jack Dandy, although he's back in this book, he still doesn't get a whole lot of facetime, but I really like him and would love to see him get his own story, after reading the short novella The dark discovery of Jack Dandy, I really feel like he has a whole lot more to tell. And if you haven't read the three short novellas then I recommend you do if you enjoy this series as they're great little additions and will keep you going until the release of book four.
