The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles #1)
by Kady Cross
Living in an alternate 1897 London, Finley Jayne doesn't act like a normal Victorian lady. When the son of her employer attacks her, she fights back and knocks him out cold. Finley is found by a mysterious group led by 18-year-old Griffin King, the Duke of Greythorne. Griffin wants to help Finley control her dark side. This is a really good steampunk story. I was immediately drawn into the plot and characters' lives. I wanted to jump into the book and shake the characters for being stupid at times. They seem rather naïve, but I still liked them. This book ends with a cliffhanger. I am going to need to get the next book. 5 stars.
