My Rating: 5/5 stars
My second experience with the steampunk genre (after Cassie Clare's Infernal Devices). I really liked this book. Finley is such a unique character who is similar to Jekyll and Hyde. Her 'dark' side is a complete badass. Yet, she is just looking for somewhere to belong. She finds that with Griffin, Emily, Sam and Jasper. Griffin works to help her bring both of her sides together. Of course, they are drawn to each other. Finley's 'dark' side however is also drawn to the notorious Jack Dandy.
I liked that this was set during Victorian London and also involved the whole machine/futuristic aspect. It was a really neat read.
