After I finished The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross, I had mixed feelings going into the sequel. On the one hand, I really feel like the world, the story and the characters have so much potential. On the other, I was disappointed in TGitSC. It felt like it was just trying to cram too much in, plus it repeatedly beat me over the head reminding me that the genre was steampunk.

I don't know about you, but even in the most fantastic of genres, I don't need to be constantly reminded of what it is: "Remember, this is the FUTURE! Remember, this world has MAGIC! Remember, this is a DYSTOPIAN!" So it irked me a bit that I felt The Steampunk Chronicles continually making sure I remembered that they were set in a steampunk world. I get it. I knew it going into the book, and I wasn't likely to forget.

However, despite my reservations, I decided to go ahead and read the second book, The Girl in the Clockwork Collar. I had high hopes that maybe it would improve on the promising elements of the first book, and not be quite so heavy-handed in its execution.

[Warning: Spoilers from TGitSC ahead]

The Good

There are fewer plot elements going on here than in TGitSC. It doesn't try to accomplish nearly so much, which is good. Also, the clockwork collar is actually a significant plot element, and Mei a significant character, making the title and the cover not nearly as superfluous as the last book (while Finley does sport a steel corset for part of TGitSC, it's pretty irrelevant to the plot. And don't even get me started on the cover). It also doesn't engage in quite so much bludgeoning with the steampunk concept.

I reviewed The Girl in the Steel Corset a few months back, so I immediately jumped at the chance to read the sequel. I must say, I was not disappointed. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is just as exciting as its predecessor.

The gang is all back together minus one. In The Girl in the Steel Corset, we left off with Jasper being arrested and sent back to America for a crime he committed. Finley, Griffin. Sam, and Emily all decide to travel to New York to get their friend back and find out the truth. But they soon find out that cops aren't what they are up against. Instead, they are up against a very dangerous and quite evil crime lord named Reno Dalton. Dalton kidnapped him because Jasper hid parts of a special machine all around New York from Dalton. Dalton has something huge planned and wants that machine and will do anything to get it.

I love that all our characters are back and better than ever. Finley is still strong and is definitely her own woman. I love the push-and-pull relationship between her and Griffin. They are both so stubborn and are always fighting each other. She doesn't think she is good enough for him because she came from nothing. He doesn't think he is good enough for her because he isn't as exciting or "bad" as Dandy (who isn't in this book, which is a shame). We also have my favorite character Emily who is so cute and brilliant, it is hard not to love her. And Sam is still great. He is still a bit of an a, but not as much as he was in book 1. I like that him and Finley are finding some common ground.

I love how much we learn about Jasper and his past. He is an amazing character. He does whatever it takes to save those he loves. I loved this book, but I wouldn't have had an issue if most of the book was told from his point of view.

First Sentence: "'What are you doing?'"

The Review: The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is the second book in The Steampunk Chronicles and is a sequel to last year's The Girl in the Steel Corset. That was a book that I thought was great, but could have been so much better with its premise. I also thought the same thing about The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, but this time, to a much higher degree, meaning I thought it was only good, not great, this time, and could have been so, so much better.

I shall start with the positives first. There is a ton of action in this book, as you might expect from its description. And bonus points for the premise: the plot revolves Finley, Griffin, Emily, and Sam trying to clear their friend Jasper's name, after he was captured by bounty hunters and charged with murder in The Girl in the Steel Corset. As a result, though, the scenery shifts from London to New York City, which could be either a positive or negative for you. Part of the allure that drew me into reading The Girl in the Steel Corset was that it was set in London, so this was a small negative part for me.

Back to the good stuff. There's plenty of vivid fight descriptions in this installment. (An action-packed plot means nothing if you don't have good descriptions of the action.) Take this example from page 146 (I read an eBook version, so the page numbers may not match up to the physical copy's page numbers): "It was like shards of glass exploding in his chest. Pain screamed through his body, slamming him to his knees, bringing the taste of blood to his mouth. He opened his mouth to scream, but nothing came out. It felt as though his vocal chords had been cut in half. And then there was nothing..."

Pretty darn good description, eh?
