4.0 out of 5 stars Great steampunk book!, May 29, 2012
This review is from: The Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles) (Hardcover)
In this installment of The Steampunk Chronicles, Finley, Griff and the rest of the gang take an airship to New York City to chase after Jasper and find out what kind of trouble he has gotten himself into. What follows is a story that is just as full of action, romantic tension and intrigue as the first book. There is no lack of trouble in New York, and we find Finley charging head first into it, as usual. As Jasper's story unfolds, there is more trouble than anyone expected. I loved the blending of history with the strange technology that creates a dangerous machine that must be stopped. The excellent pacing of the story and combination of personal interaction with exciting fight sequences kept the pages turning.

As always, Kady Cross has created a wonderful, steampunk world that adds to the reading experience. I loved seeing her version of New York City in the late 1890s. Bits of history and historical figures are blended into this world. (Make sure you read the acknowledgements and notes in the back for a further explanation of how she decided to integrate the history into the story.) This series has been a wonderful discovery for me and I really feel that it appeals to both teens and adults, equally. The people, the clothes and the myriad of fantastic devices and biotechnology make for an interesting and fun world to visit.
