About THE GIRL IN THE CLOCKWORK COLLAR (taken from goodreads.com)
In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling-or dangerous Finley Jayne and her “straynge band of mysfits” have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper from the clutches of a devious criminal 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 the rough streets of lower Manhattan to elegant Fifth Avenue, the motley crew of teens follows Jasper’s elusive trail. And they’re about to discover how far they’ll go for friendship. More than ever, Finley must rely on powerful English duke Griffin King to balance her dark magic with her good side. Yet Griffin is at war with himself over his secret attraction to Finley…and will risk his life and reputation to save her. Now, to help those she’s come to care for so deeply, Finley must infiltrate the criminal gang. Only problem is, she might like the dark side a little too much.
Review of THE GIRL IN THE CLOCKWORK COLLAR
This was a very good sequel! I’m really impressed! The plot was definitely different from the first book and it was still really good. I like how she told Jasper’s story, it was a really nice change. The plot was very nicely paced and kept me entertained the whole time. The plot twist near the end was fantastic! I liked that the romance between Finley and Griffin developed a little but I still wasn’t overall impressed with how it was going. Hopefully we see some drama in the next one!
I like how aggressive Finley is getting. She’s not your typical heroine and I think I was a little afraid of her sometimes. I love how bad ass she was! I like how this book showed a lot more of her dark side. It was a cool twist. Griffin almost seems like the girl in the relationship but I still really like him. He’s more of a smart guy than an aggressive one. Also loved Jasper and Emily of course. They’re just both great characters in general. The villains were also fantastic! Don’t wanna spoil too much here! From my review I should probably give it 5 stars but there was just a little something missing. A great read though.
Side note: Love this cover! Usually I hate the typical girl in a pretty dress cover but this one is really nice just like the first.
4 out of 5!
