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.

So I was only so so only this series after the first book, but there were aspects of it that weren't a total fail--the plotting had some imaginative points to it--and I decided to give it one more book to see if I could get into it. Unfortunately, while there weren't too many technical problems with the book, it just didn't grab me. I found myself bored with big chunks of it, and particalarly disappointed by the stunning lack of any romance. There just was nothing sizzling or burning under the surface or even chemistry between the Hero and heroine. The heroine spends the first book half-heartedly pursued by two guys. She doesn't seem to give much of a flip about either or if she does it sure isn't clear. Really she doesn't care about much of anything. Here another guy kisses her, she decides he's handsome even if on her end she's just faking it, the thing with guy number one barely goes anywhere... and I'm pretty much through with a series where the characters do nothing to grab me and the heroine is a cold fish who claims she can't be with the Hero because they are from different social classes but can have sleepovers with some other guy... huh?? Total logic fail.

Contains slight spoilers for The Girl in the Steel Corset, the first book in the series.
I read the e-ARC from the publisher. This in no way influenced my review.

Can I just say I LOVE this series!!!! I am so in love with Finley and Griffin that I can't believe I went through a whole year waiting for this sequel! There will be mild spoilers for the first book Girl in the Steel Corset so you've been warned.

Our quartet of friends, Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily are after Jasper, determined to find the truth about Jasper. Did he kill a man in cold blood? Is their friend capable of murder? They are determined to find out. So without a plan, they fly off in Griffin's own personal dirigible to New York City. They stay at the Waldorf Astoria where Finley has flowers waiting for her from, guess who? And of course Griffin is jealous. I thought , God if this book goes back and forth like the last one about their feelings for each other, I may not be able to stand it. But, Finley makes and interesting comparison about her being Cinderella and Griffin the prince but then they aren't really like that at all. She just doesn't know where she stands. Circumstances in this one make them each take a stand in this one.

Sam and Emily are their usual selves though they took a back seat a little more in this book. Finley is her usual bad a** self and plays a big role in this one. But she also sees the error of her ways when it comes to her darker side and evil.

Set against the backdrop of an alternate New York City in the late 19th century, this novel delivers everything it promises and more. The ending was everything I wanted! I think this novel was even better than the first and I absolutely loved the first one! I hope Kady Cross continues to write this series for several more novels.

The further I get into the Steampunk Chronicle books the more I like the writing style of Kady Cross. I thought this was a really good continuation of the story arcs started in the previous book. The only downside was I was able to read the books so fast, it kind of made me wish that more time had been taken to develop the characters more and let them have more moments. However as this is a 4 books series already I will have to wait and see if we get more tidbits as the story progresses.

This is a good read and I would highly recommend it for someone looking for something funny/dramatic with some sci-fi and steampumk.
