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 an 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 she 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.

In the epic finale of this fantastic steampunk series, comes a fantastic story sure to please the most loyal of readers.

After all his flirtations, dirty dealings and escapades, Jack Dandy finally has met his match, and gets his story told. With Mila she is every bit his match, the piece to the puzzle finally being placed together. You'll swoon at their moments. It's romantic, daring and all-round satisfying, not just for these characters, but also the series in itself.

Kady Cross really has come so far with this story, characters and the overall story and I could not have been any more happier to see where each of these characters have ended up.
If someone told me a few years ago that I would be enjoying a story on steampunk I'd have told them they were crazy. It never seemed to be something I thought I would like, but then comes along this story (and also Cassandra Clare's 'The Infernal Devices') and I'm hooked. I was so fascinated with this whole genre that it has taken a place amongst one of my most enjoyable genres within the literary world.

Not only do we get to see Jack's journey and romance, but we also get to see the final continuation of my favourite couple in this series, Griffin and Finley. These two have come such a long way since 'The Girl in the Steel Corset' and I couldn't be more pleased with how things had progressed from start to finish between the two of them. They have been through so much, not just as a couple, but as characters, individuals.

This is a series that will forever be in my mind and one I wouldn't mind re-reading from time to time. This is my love letter to these characters.

Thanks to Harlequin for giving me this opportunity to review this in exchange of an honest review.
