April's review of 'The Girl in the Steel Corset' by Kady Cross

The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles #1) by Kady Cross
Publication Date: May 24, 2011
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Number of Pages: 473
Format: Hardback
Buy: Amazon | Barnes and Noble
Description:  In 1897 England, 16-year-old Finley Jayne is convinced she's a freak. No normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch. Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special . . . that she's one of "them."

Only one word can describe this book. AMAZING. I just couldn't put the book down. I love books with kickass heroine, and Finley Jayne is just that. While she is learning to control and merge both sides of her in one, she can't help but feel a connection to Griffin, the duke who took her in, and has his own band of super heroes that has their own special abilities like Finley. The dark side of her is attracted to Jack, a very dangerous man. 
I was immediately on Team Griffin. Even though I do love Jack, and love that he makes Griffin jealous. Griffin is just the perfect gentleman. This book is filled with everything: romance, murder, mystery. Historical romance at it's best with a twist. 

Rating: 5/5
