The Girl with the Windup Heart Review
In 1897 London, a final showdown is about to begin.
London's underworld is no place for a young woman, even one who is strong, smart and part-automaton like Mila. But when master criminal Jack Dandy inadvertently breaks her heart, she takes off, determined to find an independent life, one entirely her own. Her search takes her to the spangled shadows of the West End's most dazzling circus.
Meanwhile, taken captive in the Aether, Griffin King is trapped in a inescapable prison, and at the mercy of his archenemy, The Machinist. If he breaks under the hellish torment, The Machinist will claim his powers and control of the Aether itself, and no one in either world will be safe-especially not Finley Jayne and her misfit band of friends.
Finley plunges headlong into the Aether the only way she knows how, by temporarily dying. But he cannot parry The Machinist's maneuvers for long. To defeat him for good, Griffin will have to confront his greatest fear and finally come face-to-face with the destructive power he wields.
Okay, so time to share my thoughts on this book. I don't really remember that much, so let's go into my thoughts.
Seeing more of Mila was extremely satisfying, since we were introduce to her in the last book. We get to see more about her and what makes her tick. Also seeing her in the real world away from those who were trying to bring her in slowly. She went in fast, and since she knew somethings about the real world she was able to deal with it pretty well.
Jack was surprising much more enjoyable this book compared to the other times I seen him throughout the series. We got to see a side to him that really shows what kind of person he is and why he is that kind of person. Now lets get this off my chest, his dad is an asshole.
Sam and Emily's relationship really did grow a lot from where they were in the first book. They both trust and love each other so much, it was really nice to see.
Finley and Griffin went through a huge development, with Griffin really understanding his powers, Finley meeting her dead father and them learning that they have to truly trust each other. Also Griffin's many near death situations was nerve racking.
3.5 out of 5 stars
