  1. Update 12 20 OMG THIS COVER IS AWESOME I like that it s not the same model as the previous cover who looked a whole heck of a lot like Megan Fox Can t wait to read this book ReviewSimilar Books Soulless by Gail Carriger, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn DolaI enjoyed Kady Cross s YA debut The Girl in the Steel Corset last year, so I was excited to get the sequel from NetGalley And while most sequels tend to not be as good as the original book, I think I liked this [...]

  2. Read This Review More Like It On My Blog I did it I finished this loooooong, dry book full of flat characters, endless repetition and tons of of the hated showing not telling way of expanding the history Though my experience with round two of this straynge band of mysfits was sliiiightly better than with its predecessor The Girl in the Steel Corset, I want to express this loudly and clearly This series is not a good example of steampunk Also, why I am just griping whyyy the random, painful basta [...]

  3. ARC supplied by NetGalley and Harlequin Teen in exchange for an honest review.I live in South Florida, where it s so hot you want to sit under the shade of a scrawny Jacaranda tree and hope to die quicklyE GIRL IN THE CLOCKWORK COLLAR is like a 16 oz glass of vanilla ice cream milkshake, a giant umbrella, a fan, and a pool magically appearing next to your sweltering body.Okay, perhaps not that really not that , but it was a good book.It s so refreshing, I couldn t wait to continue reading it It [...]

  4. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar was predictable, cheesy, boring and frustrating Why did I read it Because I was in the mood for rubbish YA, I get like that sometimes My main issue was the lame characters and silly love triangles they weren t exciting, entertaining or engrossing The plot wasn t all that either Jasper is forced to go to America and Finley, Griffin, Emily and that other dude follow him The mystery surrounding Jasper s kidnapping wasn t remotely interesting I knew what was going on [...]

  5. So Freakin AWESOME I loved it.I want to eat itAAHHH The Good This book had a different plot line than the first one Here, we follow Jasper s story Usually I get overwhelmed when an author has than one plot line in a series, but that wasn t the case here Full of mystery, action and evil villains, this book was a joy to read That twist revealed near the end TOTALLY SHOCKING I had already begun to suspect it from all the clues that were given, but even then I couldn t help but be surprised I m in [...]

  6. The first volume in this series, The Girl in the Steel Corset, had been so much fun It was kind of ridiculous, vapid, action laden, a bit trashy and inhabited by superhero comic like characters, but unquestionably fun A perfect guilty pleasure combination of steampunk, fast action, mystery and bodice ripping light It seemed to me as if the ripping scenes had been ripped out of the novel to turn the soppy romance into something young adult appropriate whatever that is At a first glance the sequel [...]

  7. A bit of a disappointment compared to the first book, but still highly entertaining I liked the new setting and the new characters and for a long time I thought that it would be a 4.5 5 star book, but then it got closer to the end and well, to be honest, the ending felt very rushed view spoiler It could have been executed a lot better and the climax of the book could have been written to be much complex and difficult for the heroes to fix Now everything was crammed together in one chapter and e [...]

  8. Originally posted at Read Me Bookmark Me Love MeThis is one of my favourite series so I was absolutely ecstatic to get my hands on this book If you fell in love with Finley and her special crew in Steel Corset, you ll love Clockwork Collar because things get even action packed and exciting Does the synopsis not capture your attention immediately Jasper s been taken by a dangerous gang leader, Reno Dalton, and must find all of the pieces of a secret device he scattered around New York last year [...]

  9. 4.5 starsAfter reading The Girl in the Steel Corset, I became an instant fan of Kady Cross writing, so I was thrilled to see the sequel on Netgalley.The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is even better First off, I adore the way Cross writes This is the stuff that makes historical fun and addicting It s crisp, clever and cunning and I enjoyed every word The story line moves over to New York, where Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily go to try to help out their friend Jasper who s been accused of murder, o [...]

  10. Ah So good Everything just clicked into place with this one There was this one character that I hoped, and wished, that Cross would go there with Sure I d predicted the plot, but it would be soooooo cool And Cross did go there I love an author who isn t afraid to DO things with their characters To throw them a situation that will forever alter them The Girl In the Clockwork Collar is the second book in the Steampunk Chronicles While it swiftly picks up where the last book left off, our character [...]

  11. Every time I read a Kady Cross book I get all excited about steampunk to the point where I think I might write one someday, then I remember that I m too chicken to take it on and there s no way on earth I m putting on a corset Congrats Kady on another inspirational story

  12. I guess the moral of this one is, Fool me once with a very pretty cover, Kady Cross, shame on you Fool me twice, shame on me I should ve just put the book down right at the beginning, when Finley was all, I m flying, Jack Griffin It all went downhill from there I m going to run down the highlights lowlights of the worst parts of the book If I had to hear about Emily s ropy hair one time, I was going to hurl the book across the room Being as I read it on Kindle, this is no light claim I make Als [...]

  15. I really enjoyed The Girl in the Steel Corset so I m not sure why it took me quite so long to get around to reading The Girl in the Clockwork Collar The good thing about waiting is that all three books in the trilogy are now available so I m going to be able to read the final instalment fairly quickly I d actually forgotten how much I liked Finley and the crazy group of misfits that she has become friends with and it was great to get back into the world that Kady Cross has created.Finley is stil [...]

  16. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar begins just as it left of with The Girl in the Steel Corset The team of Finley, Griffin, Sam Emily are on their way to America For reasons I will not disclose in this review as to not be spoilery The group finds themselves up against another evil foe One that won t be easily stopped.The girl in the clockwork collar is a new character to the series and due to her presence we get to learn a little bit about the cowboy Jasper, that we met in The Girl in the Steel C [...]

  17. I remember reading the first book for this series and thinkingwow Just WOW The setting, the world that Kady Cross has created blows me away everytime I enter it The inventions, the fight scenes, the bas ass girls, the ballgowns and the raw human emotions create a world I want so badly to live in Seriously I would love to be apart of Finley s world granted s mainly because of Griffin.Book 2 picks up from where book 1 endedFinley, Griffin sigh and the gang are travelling to New York, in the hopes [...]

  18. 4.5 5Um where s Jack Dandy coughs Anyhoo, Ms Cross did it again I loved and enjoyed The Girl in the Clockwork Collar as much as the first book I tried putting it on hold so I can savor the moments I mean, let s face it I need to wait another year for the third book And that s a torture Plus I didn t get my Jack Dandy fix But I can t help myself, I dig this book I just need to read it Like, right now So with that, huge thanks to netgalley I got the chance to read the book this early Once again th [...]

  19. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm Finley, Griffin, Emily and Sam are travelling to New York to save Jasper, who they believe has been arrested for murder However, Jasper is not with the Police he is being held captive by his former gang If Jasper returns the machine he stole from the gang s leader Dalton, then Jasper s first love Mia will not be killed by the mysterious clockwork collar around her neck Finley goes undercover to help save Jasper and Mia, and to find out w [...]

  20. Having no recollection of anything going on in this series since I read book two first I had high hopes for this novel I m glad it didn t let me down We find Finley who is this insane, smart and fierce fighter who can take anyone whether there are man or woman, down Her love interest Griffin is by her side and constantly worrying about her She has a vulnerable side to her when it comes to Griffin and the two share a love that is rather sweet Then there s Jasper who is trying to keep his love Mei [...]

  21. This is the second book in the series and very explosive And they travel to the continental US to solve another murder and come into the brink of a deadly project I really loved the plot Fulfilling and exciting, each chapter leads to new people, new missions, and new betrayals I loved that the plot is always moving The reader learns about the characters of Griffin, Finley and the others past The friendship also blooms beautifully before the readers eyes.The love interest is particular exciting [...]

  22. Reread December 2015Read May 2013This 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 i [...]

  23. First of all, I m not a huge fan of the whole steampunk genre I just don t get it The obsession with Aether and mechanical things and dirigibles Does nothing for me However, as many of my reader friends have informed me, I m clearly out of my mind So bear that in mind when you see that this was only a 2 star book.Second, if this book hadn t been a steampunk book, it still would have only gotten 3 3.5 stars Why Because the plot just didn t work for me For example, Griffin is only 18 That either m [...]

  24. 3.5 starsI didn t think it was as good as The Girl in the Steel Corset, but it was still a decent read.Finley just isn t as exciting now that she doesn t black out and go all Mr Hyde on people I mean, I happy for her now that her two personalities have sort of merged, but it would be nice to see her get super crazy again Am I wrong to want that Also, she and Griff need to shit or get off the pot Their relationship was too wishy washy for me to get into it Again, I may be wrong, but I sort of lik [...]

  25. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is an endearing story in the Steampunk sub genre, set in Victorian England and America Full of science, magic, romance, suspense, gangsters, history, settings galore, this novel will keep the reader riffling those pages without realizing the passage of time You will want to read this at one sitting because it s just too compelling to put down This is such a captivating novel that I immediately determined to read the prior books in the series this is 2 Kady Cross [...]

  26. This book was so much fun I really like the fact that the two main women are strong and smart and able to kick some ass I liked how the relationship between Finley and Griffin slowly develops I thought the steampunk elements in this book are amazing and I would like to own some of the contraptions myself.

  27. Ohhhh I m in love with Kady Cross, when I finished with book 1 I was amazed with how much I loved The Girl in Steel Corset and I stared book 2 in the same day, I was afraid I wouldn t like it as much but I loved it even , forget 5 stars this book deserves 10 bright supernovas It was that good.Can t wait for the third book, May can t come quick enough.

  28. To start off, I LOVED the prequel novella The Strange Case of Finley Jayne, and gave it 5 stars The first novel of this series, though I didn t love it giving it only 3 stars, and sadly I didn t write a review for it , was still a pretty decent book The plot was intriguing, and the characters I liked for the most part, though Sam I always thought was a broody oaf, and Finley annoyed me periodically with her constant visit flirtations with Jack Dandy Way to test your friends trust But overall, I [...]

  29. Nadat ik over het eerste deel gematigd positief was, ik miste e.e.a aan details, hoopte ik dat de schrijfster het in het tweede deel wat meer details toe zou voegen aan de steampunk setting Maar ook in het tweede boek vond ik dat te wensen over laten Nadat we de setting in het eerste boek niet lekker meekregen verhuisden we in het tweede boek voor een avontuur naar een andere stad Maar ook hier lukt het de schrijfster niet goed om de wereld van de grond te krijgen Het verhaal en de personages da [...]
