steampunk chronicles - the girl in the steel corset by kady cross (2011)
this is the first book of kady cross'
new series, the steampunk chronicles
. this is my first (knowingly) steampunk-book, so i was really curious whether i would like it or not...
finley jane has two personalities insider her, her own self and a dark one, and the dark one has nearly killed her employee, a rich but abusive lord. when she flights from the scene, she bumps into the carriage of a young duke, who takes her to his home to cure her injuries. there she meets other people that have special talents, like her.
attention: there are two love-triangles!
the book is a cross of the strange case of dr. jekyll and mr. hyde
and some jane austen... the writing is good but the story was slightly predictable but entertaining.
there is a prequel, the strange case of finley jane
, i will definitively read that and look out for the sequel. * * *
the book will be released in may 2011.
