Like Emily and Finley, I want to hug him. And never let go. By the end of the book, my opinion of her was completely different from what I first thought. If you've read the book, see the spoiler to see my full reaction towards her. I wanted to strangle her! At first I was like, hey, she seems nice and interesting, but when it was revealed that she was actually in league with Dalton and the fact that the clockwork collar was FAKE , I wanted to break her little neck. There aren't that many characters that I hate with this much passion, so this shows how much I hated Mei for hurting Jasper like that.

I'm sorry Finley for thinking you were too harsh on her when you threatened to throw her out the window. You should've just done it. I wanted to kick this son of a biscuit right in his jewels. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is an insane book. A lot better than the previous one in the series.

I highly recommend that you continue on the series with this book! Is there a third book? Please tell me there is. View all 46 comments. The first volume in this series, The Girl in the Steel Corset , had been so much fun. It was kind of ridiculous, vapid, action-laden, a bit trashy and inhabited by superhero-comic-like characters, but unquestionably fun. A perfect guilty-pleasure-combination of steampunk, fast action, mystery and bodice-ripping "light" It seemed to me as if the "ripping" scenes had been "ripped" out of the novel to turn the soppy romance into something young-adult-appropriate - whatever that is.

At a first glan The first volume in this series, The Girl in the Steel Corset , had been so much fun. At a first glance the sequel - including cover and title - does not stray very far from the former, successful recipe. There are the same old supernatural, monetarily independent teens clinging to the same old love-triangles and I-should-not-confess-my-feelings-resolves, displaying the same old sets of faults and and playing around with fantastically steampunky devices i.

There are tiny variations, though, which caused the pudding to taste stale and unbearably boring to me: The even stronger focus on the romantic problems and multiple inner monologues of the tormented parties and the lack of danger and pepper and mystery. Around the middle of the story I grew antsy, because nothing really riveting happened, because of the repetitions and because the characters proved themselves to be pretty see-through and black-and-white view spoiler [Am I right? I never would have thought I would consider not finishing this book. Yet, here I am, burying the file in a dusty folder in the depths of my Kindle and shifting the writer into the blind spot of my consciousness: As it is I do not see sense in trying one of her future works.

A bit of a disappointment compared to the first book, but still highly entertaining. I liked the new setting and the new characters and for a long time I thought that it would be a 4. Now everything was crammed together in one c A bit of a disappointment compared to the first book, but still highly entertaining.

Now everything was crammed together in one chapter and everything worked out just as planned. Also there was no real cliffhanger that made you want to read the next book right away, as there was at the end of the first book. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a better third book: Oct 11, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you fell in love with Finley and her special crew in Steel Corset, you'll love Clockwork Collar because things get even more action-packed and exciting.

Does the synopsis not capture your attention immediately? Jasper's been taken by a dangerous gang leader, Reno Dalton, and must find all of the pieces of a secret device he scattered around New York las Originally posted at Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me This is one of my favourite series so I was absolutely ecstatic to get my hands on this book! Jasper's been taken by a dangerous gang leader, Reno Dalton, and must find all of the pieces of a secret device he scattered around New York last year after escaping.

The clockwork collar around his past love's neck is quite literally one that will tighten and tighten. If anyone but Mei touches it, she'll die, simple as that. The stakes are high, yes? So strap yourselves in for another beautiful adventure with Kady Cross! While I loved the London setting in the previous book, New York was so much grittier and had this indescribable atmosphere about it. As always, I felt right back in the 19th century and was thoroughly sucked into the world! Of course, I was slightly sad that Jack Dandy got left behind but the other characters were more than enough to keep me satisfied!

What I love about this series is how Cross manages to incorporate every single character into the storyline and let them have their own personal journeys parallel to Finley's.

Naomi Alderman: ‘I went into the novel religious and by the end I wasn’t. I wrote myself out of it’

When I first saw the synopsis, I admit I was slightly worried that the book would be boring and all about Jasper and Mei, but I found that it wasn't the case at all. We spend a significant amount of time with Finley's gang although the two worlds overlap a lot! He's a very fascinating person What do I even say about Finley Jane? Her character becomes even stronger than before and it is always such a joy to experience new things with her. She and Griffin King, the gorgeous Duke of Greythorne, are still trying to resist each other for reasons completely unbeknownst to us!

Boy likes girl and vice versa…What's the problem?! Oh Griffin's sense of morality. It's completely obvious to us that Griffin's taken with Finley and we can see it in the way he behaves, the things he does for her and so much more! He's aware of Jack's interest in her too, which makes things even more exciting! Is he just going to stand by and watch his lady be charmed away or is he finally going to do something about it?

Like I said, the time we do spend away from Finley is amazing and just as exhilarating! You wouldn't believe the fun I had with the other narrators. I refuse to spoil anything so just know that it's filled with danger, excitement, love and fear, all rolled in a bowl full of deception!

Cross stays true to the adventure we're used to seeing and it honestly made me feel like jumping into a boxing ring to let out some excess badass! Clockwork Collar is truly one that involves you in the story and engages you completely. You'll be out of your seat and cheering for the heroes soon enough! Although…Dalton really isn't hard to look at. Why are the evil ones always good looking? Overall, Clockwork Collar is the kind of book that demands your attention. With its beautiful cast of characters who lead lives far more interesting than ours, there's no way it won't sweep you up off your feet!

The romance and action had me fainting and squealing all over the place so watch out! Even though there are a few things that you know are going to happen, it doesn't make the ride any less enjoyable. Oh, the drama and mystery! I'm desperate for the third book now. I need to know what happens next! This is an absolutely must-read book so don't even think about giving it a miss!

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is even better!! First off, I adore the way Cross writes! This is the stuff that makes historical fun and addicting. It's crisp, clever and cunning and I enjoyed every word. The story-line moves over to New York, where Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily go to try to help out their friend Jasper who's been accused of murde 4. The story-line moves over to New York, where Finley, Griffin, Sam and Emily go to try to help out their friend Jasper who's been accused of murder, only once they get there it's not what it seems, and in more ways then one.

This heart pounding plot moved with great flow and excitement. There was never a dull moment, the twists and turns kept me on my toes. The pace was perfect and I loved how is sizzled with anticipation around every corner. I also loved learning more about the Aether and the automans and the wicked devices. It's all completely fascinating. But my favorite part about this book is the outstanding cast!

Finley still struggles with the conflict of her two selves. There is a big part of her that will always be drawn to danger and adventure, but I think she's come along way since the first book with a little more help from her friends. Griffin won me over in the first book. There is just something incredibly sexy about a powerful man with a jealous streak.

The whole trust issues may seem a bit frowning, but I think it's a very human move on his part. It was an acceptable conflict. Sam and Emily are still just as great, but I did wish we could have seen some more of their lovely banter. In the first book it was like watching a firm but gentle hand calming down a tempered child.

It was amusing, sweet and awfully missed. Jasper wasn't a character I knew well in the first book, so it was nice to see him in the spotlight. I thoroughly enjoyed what he brought into the storyline. He has a loyal heart, witty humor and brings enough comic relief to the more dire situations.

Mei would be our girl in the clockwork collar, which is why I love the cover so much since it gives a great visual. I'm guessing Dalton would be our Dandy in this book. I admit that I missed Jack a lot, I guess he's just my kind of scoundrel, but never the less, Dalton played the villain very well. I was really happy that some romance seemed to find it's way into this book. It kinda of lacked in the first one but the plot was so much fun that it wasn't really a big issues. This one seemed to have it all. The excitement and the romance. Finley and Griffin have such an irresistible chemistry.

Griffin likes to play the hero but Finley refuses to play the damsel in distress, the dance is well rehearsed and intoxicating to witness. All in all, I had a great time with this book.

With This Collar

It's fun and exciting and has some of the scrappiest characters I ever did meet! Looking forward to reading the next installment in this must have series! Arc provided by Netgalley and Harlequin Teen Everything just clicked into place with this one. There was this one character that I hoped, and wished, that Cross would go there with. Sure I'd predicted the plot, but it would be soooooo cool. And Cross did go there. I love an author who isn't afraid to DO things with their characters. To throw them a situation that will forever alter them.

While it swiftly picks up where the last book left off, our Ah. While it swiftly picks up where the last book left off, our characters won't stay comfy for long. The changing POV is still present and I'm so happy that a lot of the characters get to tell the story. Jack Dandy may never have stepped into this story, but he made his presence known. It's so wonderful watching them deal with their emotions with each other.

To learning together that society should never dictate how you love someone. Life can be startling short. Oh, and don't forget poor Jasper. He's very much the scoundrel. He's left broken hearts everywhere and his past in a gang is coming back to haunt him. However, Jasper is a true gentleman and I loved him. It's so hard to pick favorites with so many wonderful characters but Jasper is pretty darn amazing.

Which is shown by the type of women he picks. No one should complain about Finley's taste in men anymore. I was fascinated by his exes and one in particular I hope to see in future installments. However, I enjoyed the peek into New York and really enjoyed how much this entry expanded the world of the Steampunk Chronicles. Now that the bulk of the character introductions and world building were handled in the first book, this book just felt effortless.

There are also some heavy consequences that will affect the characters. I'm very excited to see what the next installment brings! Some mild adult themes mentioned. Originally reviewed at Book Whispers. Jul 11, Colleen Houck added it Shelves: Every time I read a Kady Cross book I get all excited about steampunk to the point where I think I might write one someday, then I remember that I'm too chicken to take it on and there's no way on earth I'm putting on a corset.

Being as I read it on Kindle, this is no light claim I make.

Also, Cross puts her in a maroon dress in the beginning, saying it did wonders for her skin, but why on earth would you put a redhead in that color? Need to communicate and you're not in the same room? Need to communicate and you're in different parts of the city? Need to get out of your high-rise hotel room stat? Got the shit beaten out of you but need to do more work later today?

Particularly given that a lot of the gang members were first-generation Americans, it was doubtful they'd give two shits excuse me, shites , because they're from England, remember? I don't know if you remember, but they're from England. She pisses and moans Griffin not treating her and Emily as "capable women," which mostly just means, "Why do you get angry when I don't consult you about my plans, which are for the most part really foolhardy and based solely on my ability to punch things.

That sort of falls apart, however, when you realize every other female character mentioned in the series for more than a few sentences with the exception of Emily is put in direct conflict with Finley one way or another. Let's count it off, shall we? Lydia Astor-Prynn - Is bad because she wants to marry the guy Finley has a crush on which, socially speaking, makes more sense. Finley even knows this , wasn't raised unconventionally as Griffin's group, and sees the girl who punched Griffin in the jaw and knocked him out at a dress shop--a stupid, convoluted story to put forth for someone who has jumped out of two story windows in the past without a scratch--trying to use Griffin's name to buy her dress and rightfully calls her out.

Sorry Finley, you act like a hardened criminal, you can't be pissed off if someone calls you on it, even if you were only pretending. Even if the girl calling you out can't punch through a wall or make taser-gloves. Wildcat - She's like Finley--fighty, sassy, lower classy--but not as good. After all, it's not Wildcat who saves everyone in the end, is it?

Mei - My god, Mei. See, I really liked Mei when I thought she view spoiler [ was on the good guys' side. Johanna from the Hunger Games. So Mei could be "a proper cow" to Finley, and they could be working towards the same goal, but for totally different reasons. Or they both hate each other, but want Jasper to be free, so they decide to put their differences aside for the time being. But what really happens instead is that because Mei is mean to Finley, it's indicative of the later, deeper betrayal.

Because if you're a girl who doesn't like Finley, you're obviously either weak, jealous, evil, or all three. How hard is it to say that he felt gratitude, or was happy he had such a good friend in this mess? That line coupled with that "Jasper was her new favorite person" business, I'm inclined to think Cross just wants to diversify her readers' shipping choices so she can go along and read the fanfiction later. Corsets do not move that way. Also, you wear corsets under your clothing.

Though it would be kind of funny if it turned out Cross was making a joke about superheroes wearing their underwear on the outside of their clothes, a la Superman and Batman, I highly doubt she's that clever or capable of that kind of subtlety. He's handsome for an old dude. He's got to be at least thirty. Quite apart from her dreadful, telegraphed-from miles away betrayal of Jasper, I don't really understand why everyone gets so broken up over her death.

Jasper I can understand has a lot of complicated feels, but literally five pages ago everyone wanted to tear a chunk out of this girl's hide for being a big betraying bitch who betrayed and doesn't like Finley. They were threatening her with the characteristic hyperbolic violence that appears every chapter or so "I'll tear his arms off, I'll make him pay, blah blah blah," we get it, dude. But the second someone makes more or less good on that threat--accidentally--I might add, the whole group flips the fuck out.

Maybe it was supposed to show that the group were still kids, really, when it came down to it, and when they were faced with the reality of actually killing someone they weren't so tough as their words and thoughts led them to believe, but I don't believe that. I think it was a sloppy attempt to make them better than those they fought, more human. You might want to cool it on being jelly of Emily and Tesla's great science-y love, since dude hated germs so much he was celibate.

And the adding of the Dead Rabbits was so fanfiction-y, and that stupid note in the end about "an Italian actor portraying an Irish character, and an Irish actor portraying an Italian one. More action, more steampunk and more danger in this sequel. After Jasper Renn, the American Cowboy, was hauled off by a bunch of thug bounty hunters, the gang is in pursuit, headed to New York City. Jasper was taken prisoner accused of murder. Griffin and Finley refuse to believe their loyal friend is guilty of this crime. So they are currently aboard Griffin's airship gliding over the glittering city.

Strange he isn't at the jail Meanwhile, a battered and bruised Jasper is currently residing in the home of his former boss, Dalton. Dalton is the leader of a gang of ruffians and he is certainly not an upstanding citizen. It seems that Jasper double crossed Dalton by stealing and dismantling a strange invention that he helped Dalton procure.

Jasper had no idea what the device was designed to do, but he had a feeling it wasn't anything good. Now, Jasper's criminal past has come back to haunt him and at a steep price. Dalton is demanding that he recover the pieces.

If he fails to do so, the girl who once stole his heart, Mei Xing, may die, strangled by the clockwork collar she is forced to wear by Dalton. Enter in Finley and the rest of the gang. They plan to recover their friend and determine if he is indeed guilty. To do so, Finley infiltrates Dalton's gang and enters into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Will she succeed in freeing the cowboy? There are more interesting steampunk inventions as well as the continued camaraderie of the four friends.

Finley Jayne is tough as nails and she find herself in the middle of numerous fights and scuffles. I love reading about this kick butt heroine. I was caught off guard by several big reveals. First impressions are often wrong in this book! What started as small sparks between Finley and Griffin has turned into a smoldering tension that runs throughout the novel. The two dance around their kindling feelings, hesitating..

Cross does an excellent job creating a romance that keeps you guessing. If you like romances that are slow building and wrought with tension, you will enjoy the dynamic between Finley and Griffin. There are no cliffhangers and they resolve neatly. Yet, they build upon each other. I am all for a series that avoids the dreaded non resolutive endings. And The Not So Much: Cross created them as teens so that this series could be labeled as Young Adult. The problem is that they do not act like teenagers, more like they are in their twenties.

All four of the characters are mature, capable and dealing with issues more suited for adults. This series excels beyond the typical YA boundaries and I personally don't really see it fitting well into that classification. There is absolutely nothing appropriate about these books so they can be read by youth as well as adults. Don't let this keep you from reading these books, they are so much fun. Just don't expect a book with a typical teen related issues. Unfortunately, the city is just a backdrop and there is little description or detail on New York during this time period.

I wish that she had showcased New York City more. The book builds to this big climatic showdown and it is over in an instant. I was expecting a bit more in the final scene. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar lives up to its predecessor. This is an action packed adventure set at the end of the 19th century in New York. When gangs dominated the city and guns and fists were often the way to settle disputes. Add in a dash of romance, a dose of steampunk and a strong camaraderie and you have the framework for an exciting sequel.

If you have yet to dive into steampunk, The Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross are an excellent way to immerse yourself into the genre. It looked like stars covered the ground, and set a short distance from it all was the largest lady she'd ever seen, the glow from her torch illuminating from her raised hand to just the top of her crowned head. You've got your head so far up your own arse, it must be dark in there. Mar 06, Veronica Morfi rated it it was amazing.

But soon they find out that Jasper isn't really at prison but has been held captive by an old 'friend' of his, Dalton. Dalton wants back all the pieces to a device Jasper was suppose to deliver to him a year ago and in order to do that he keeping Mei, Jasper's old love, with a clockwork collar around her neck. One mistep from Jasper and Mei may be dead. I loved this book. It was as good as the first if not better. The streets of New York came to life in front of my eyes, from the funcy balls to the gang alleys.

Also I loved the fact that Tesla was in the book along with references to Edison, it makes the world Cross created even more realistic. Once again the characters wer one of my favorite things. I loved how the romance between Finley and Griffin is slowly and steadily evolving. It's worth reading all the fights just for the moments that they fall a lit more in love with each other.

In this book we see a lot from Jasper and I think it is great to know his story too. But yet again I am not the biggest fan of the villain. He was better than the Machinist but still I feel like he was missing something. Also I had everything figure out again from an early chapter, just like the first book, I would love it if Cross didn't give away that many clues as to what will happen so that I can be surprised for once.

All in all, I love this book and the whole series. I am in love with the world Kady Cross has created and can't wait for my next visit there. The good thing about waiting is that all three books in the trilogy are now available so I'm going to be able to read the final instalment fairly quickly! I'd actually forgotten how much I liked Finley and the crazy group of misfits that she has become friends with and it was great to get back into the world that Kady Cross has created. Finley is still struggling to bring both sides of her personality together but she has come a long way from who she was in the first book thanks to Griff and the others.

She is still incredibly independent, intelligent and more than capable of looking out for herself which is something that has to be admired but she does have a tendency to act without thinking through the full consequences which often gets her in trouble. Griff struggles with the fact that Finley is often more capable of protecting herself than he is of looking after her but as much as that grates on him he puts that to one side once he has time to think about things.

A New Earth Awakening to Your Life's Purpose Audiobook #2_2

I have to say that Griff has grown on me since the first book but I did miss Finley's other potential love interest Jack in this instalment. It's not often I'm interested in love triangles but with the two distinct sides to Finley's personality it's not surprising that she is attracted to both of these very different men.

I always tend to have a thing for the bad guy so it wasn't much of a surprise to me that I previously found Jack the more appealing of the two but after reading this book I'm now split down the middle and I'm almost tempted to switch to team Griff. It was great to catch up with Emily and discover her latest impressive inventions, she is the smartest one of the group by far and she always has a few tricks up her sleeve. Sam has had quite a change of attitude which he desperately needed and he and Finley have almost reached a point where they could consider each other friends rather than enemies.

This story takes us away from London and across the pond to New York and Jasper's old hunting grounds. Jasper is in a mess, his old gang have caught up with him and they are using blackmail to get their hands on a weapon he stole and hid from them before he fled to London. Finley, Griff and the others can't leave their friend to deal with the mess on his own and they have followed him to America to assist in any way they can.

I always loved Jasper so it was great to spend more time with him and to get to know more about his past. I have to admit I wasn't a huge fan of his ex-girlfriend Mei but I absolutely loved his old friend Wildcat and really hope we get to see more of her in the future. The story was well paced, had a nice amount of action and had a couple of great twists. I'll admit that I had suspected one of them well before the big reveal but I'm pretty sure that was intentional and it didn't spoil my enjoyment.

I really like this steampunk world full of automatons, organites and airships and am looking forward to reading The Girl with the Iron Touch in the not too distant future. Jul 14, Kristi rated it really liked it. For reasons I will not disclose in this review as to not be spoilery! The group finds themselves up against another evil foe! The girl in the clockwork collar is a new character to the series and due to her presence we get to learn a little bit more about the cowboy Jasper, that we met in The Gir The Girl in the Clockwork Collar begins just as it left of with The Girl in the Steel Corset.

The girl in the clockwork collar is a new character to the series and due to her presence we get to learn a little bit more about the cowboy Jasper, that we met in The Girl in the Steel Corset. I loved Jasper before, but I think I may love him even more now! If you were a fan of book one, you will NOT be disappointed.

Can I just say that the tension between Finley and Griffin was killer! Would those two just kiss and profess their undying love for each other already!?! Okay, so things that I liked. Besides more Jasper, which is always a good thing. And we also get to meet a particularly interesting inventor from that era as well. And though his creations in The Girl in the Clockwork Collar may not have been his ideas, he was very much a real person.

He so stepped it up in the novel. There were a few things that I missed from the first book. Like, what happened to Emily and Sam!!?! I feel like I hardly got to see them in this book. But I so missed Sam being the big burly teddy bear and Emily showing everyone that there really is a heart in there.

No really she physically put his heart in there! And more importantly… where the heck was Dandy? I mean he sends some flowers and that was it!? Such an exciting addition to the series. Mar 14, Booknut rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Not so they could appreciate Griffin. I remember reading the first book for this series and thinking The setting, the world that Kady Cross has created The inventions, the fight scenes, the bas-ass girls, the ballgowns and the raw human emotions create a world I want so badly to live in.

I would love to be apart of Finley's world granted Book 2 picks up from where book 1 ended But politics, parties and rescue missions aren't the only thing on their minds. Sam is trying his best to prove his trustworthiness to the gang, Emily finds happiness in her love for Sam but still aches at the loss of Jasper, Finley is finally whole once more but the dark side seems more inviting than ever and Griffin Or his growing connection to the Aether. Both of which could prove dangerous not only to the gang but to the mission ahead.

Mentioning old characters - e. Jack reminds me of George from the Lioness books by Tamora Pierce Griffin's SO green-eyed about his friendship with Finley!! Dalton and Mei - this book has not stopped the machine rolling LOL. Rather it has created a fast-paced, detailed, highly enjoyable adventure that rivals Girl in the Steel Corset and makes me long for what is to come. And I'm sure, whatever it is, will be great! B the witty lines and the scene at the dressmakers "If I punched her in the mouth, do you think she'd shut up?

So with that, huge thanks to netgalley. I got the chance to read the book this 4. I got the chance to read the book this early.

The lush steampunk goodness that I fell in love in the first book is still here. And should I say, more? And more of Finley, Griffin, Emily and Sam. Oh yeah, and Jasper too. Dandy is not here he better be in the next book. And Finley is not Asian. But in this book, I got the chance to meet Mei. So hence the front cover. She is not good. Not good at all. That said, I still felt sorry for her after what happened to her.

But my empathy inclines more on Jasper. As for the story, the gang went to New York to save Jasper. He uses Mei as a hostage; and if he does something wrong, the collar on her neck will strangle her. So he has no choice but to comply with his demands. On the other hand, Finely thought of a plan to save him. And I love every moment of it. Finley is no doubt one major kick-ass heroine.

Okay, enough about that. Nothing else he says ever matches up to anything a middle-aged woman would have experienced.

I love how she stood up for herself even to Griffin—actually especially to him. Oppressed women assume that divine intervention has saved them from the hell-on-earth of their previous existence, and a new religious leader is ready and waiting to feminise faith: Drugs are developed to heighten the power, and porn created to fetishise it.

Alderman conducts her thought experiment through the lives of four main characters. The novel is constructed as a big, brash, page-turning, drug-running, globetrotting thriller, one in which people say things such as: Or you wanna stand against me? Here domination gets, as usual, a religious blessing: Mother Eve, whose mission is powered by a drolly laconic voice in her head, has a theological blueprint for the new world order. But I say unto you that woman rules over man as Mary guided her infant son, with kindness and with love.
