The Girl with the Iron Touch Review
In 1897 London, something not quite human is about to awaken.
When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons-or forfeit her friends' lives.
With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him...and for Griffin.
Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could ever imagine.
To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation-an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance of triumph, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has...
I pretty much flue through this book. I don't know why I read it so fast since I read the first two books a couple of months ago.
Emily was such a kick ass character in this book. She really didn't need everyone to save her from the automatons. What she did to save Sam was fantastic though.
Griffin was such a pain to deal with during this novel. I wish that he would just get his shit together and tell his friends what the hell was going on with him. And when he did, it was a bit to late for me. That really bothered me, he was always into other people's business but no one was in his.
Finley also was a bit more pushy towards Griffin. She was always at him about what was going on, and even tried to eavesdropping on him. I still think she was such a badass but she is starting to get a handle on what she is capable of.
Sam and Jasper finally got over there little jealousy thing, and get along so well. Sam really did trust the others more in general. He didn't have a giant need to protect them, and instead let them do it themselves. Unfortunately we didn't see as much of Jasper as I want.
