Description"In 1897 London, sometihng not quite human is about to awaken" When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons--or forfeit her friends' lives. With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him...and for Griffin. Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine. To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation--an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance of triumph, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has....

Finley, Emily lots of romance and plenty of action Another WIN!
All the old characters are back with the addition of some new ones. Can't say who or it would ruin the book. I will say that I did like getting into Emily's head a little more. She's always seemed a bit untouchable before. But it was great getting to know what happened to her to shape her into who she is now. Though we got to see into Finley's head more, I almost didn't like it. She was too girly. Don't get me wrong, I love her and Griffin together and I loved where the story line went with them, but it seemed like they changed places with Griffin being more manly and Finley being much more worried with matters of the heart. I suppose that's how it should be, but not what I'm used to from Finley. Her kick a**edness was missing.
The story was great! Action packed and I was certainly guessing until the last possible moment as to how things would work out. I'm still worried for my favorite characters. Their arch nemesis can still get at them and destroy everything and I can't see how they are going to protect themselves now. As I stated above, I loved seeing into the mind of Emily and getting her back story and I did enjoy Finley's frustration at Griffin's aloofness. I just expected her to go beat Sam up rather than pout about it. The new machines and automatons and weapons introduced added to the depth of the steampunk layers that have been building throughout the series.
I highly recommend this series to fans of the other books in the series, to people just venturing into Steampunk, YA lovers, and Alt/Historical fiction. There is some romance and some Victorian talk about sex, more rather implied than stated.
I received a copy of the digital advanced reader's copy of this novel from the publisher for review. This did not affect my opinion of the novel or my review in any way.
