"In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous.Plot: The Girl In The Clockwork Collar picks up right where The Girl in the Steel Corset ends. It has the same flow and excitement and romantic interests are Book 1, while still being a different book. It also prepares you for the plot line of Book 3.
Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves.
One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens."
Characters: Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily are generally the same; The Girl In The Clockwork Collar is more about Jasper and his backround. Which was nice, since he was a charming Character in Book 1, it was nice to get know him better.
Pros: A True Steampunk Mystery Novel. A great sequel and awesome love triangles.
Cons: I felt their needed to be a little more of New York or something in it. I just felt it was missing something. A little too much repetition of some lines through out the book.
Final Thoughts: I was jumping for glee when I received an E-Galley of this book. I finished reading The Girl In The Steel Corset not too long ago, and was in LOVE! So, I was very happy to begin reading The Girl in the Clockwork Collar and taken right back into their world. I highly recommend this book and this series to people who love either Historical Fiction, Steampunk, Mystery and Paranormal Books, because Kady Cross mixes them really really well!
