BOOK COVER REVEAL - THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH by KADY CROSS - STEAMPUNK CHRONICLES # 3 - HARLEQUIN TEEN







Finley Jayne, Griffin and their crew are stunned when one of their own is kidnapped. Emily has a way with machines—she can literally talk to them. But the automatons who abducted her aren’t ordinary machines. They’re almost human—and they want Emily to do something as horrifying as it seems possible.

To save Emily, Finley must contact the highly unsettling Jack Dandy and face her feelings for two vastly different men, even as Griffin’s nightmares threaten to turn into a reality that might just end them all.



I think it is safe to assume I LOVE The Steampunk Chronicles series.  Check out this beautiful cover! Finley Jayne is rocking it! That outfit!! The goggles!!! That belt!!!....her hair!! Those lads!!! ( well they aren't on the cover , but you can't go past Jack and Griffin) I was only just thinking yesterday when the 3rd book was coming out and also Kate Locke ( aka Kady Cross) her adult Steampunk series The Immortal Empire ( # 2 Feb 2013) . Love steampunk, it is an addiction. I highly recommend this YA series. I am looking forward to meeting back up with cockney Jack. 

An edit to my above comment. 7th February. I did not have blurb at the time as it was not up. Only cover reveal. This is apparently Emily on cover. Which would fit in with a different girl on each cover theme. I could only go on the bit of info I had at the time. I have to admit I didn't quite think of Emily like this! But good on Emily she is rockin' the clothes and looking gorgeous!

Due for release : 21st May 2013

WOOT!!!

Blurb taken from Goodreads 7th February 2013

In 1897 London, something 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 at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has....

    1. I didn't have the blurb at the time. It was just the cover. So yes it would appear from the blurb it may be Emily. Go figure I didn't picture her like this!I pictured some not so kick ass looking chick. But there you go! Emily it would appear to be:)

      Thanks for heads up!

  5. Throughout this novel, you can tell how much research and ingenuity Kady Cross has when writing. The world and character building is fantastic, and I sincerely hope that this isn't the last in the series. I can't wait to read more about Finely and crew!
