1897 London, a final showdown is about to begin  London's underworld is no place for a young woman, even one who is strong, smart and part-automaton like Mila. But when master criminal Jack Dandy inadvertently breaks her heart, she takes off, determined to find an independent life, one entirely her own. Her search takes her to the spangled shadows of the West End's most dazzling circus. Meanwhile, taken captive in the Aether, Griffin King is trapped in an inescapable prison, and at the mercy of his archenemy, The Machinist. If he breaks under the hellish torment, The Machinist will claim his powers and control of the Aether itself, and no one in either world will be safe—especially not Finley Jayne and her misfit band of friends.  Finley plunges headlong into the Aether the only way she knows how, by temporarily dying. But she cannot parry The Machinist's maneuvers for long. To defeat him for good, Griffin will have to confront his greatest fear and finally come face-to-face with the destructive power he wields.1897 London, a final showdown is about to begin  London's underworld is no place for a young woman, even one who is strong, smart and part-automaton like Mila.

3.0 Short thought: The Girl with the Windup Heart
The only other book I've read from the Steampunk Chronicles series is The Girl with the Iron Touch..and frankly I didn't even took the time to check the order of the books. While I like this one, I would say I like the earlier one better. Both the books have a kind of serious tone to them I would sa...

3.0 The Girl with the Windup Heart (Steampunk Chronicles #4) by Kady Cross
It was a nice and decent ending to a nice series. All ended well. :) It kind of feels like the author paired up everyone else together but it works, so it’s not that bad.

0.0 The Girl With the Windup Heart
After five books and numerous novellas, Kady Cross’ Steampunk Chronicles finally come to an end. This rocky series has seen its share of ups-and-downs. Weak subplots, rushed action, and fairly one-dimensional characters make up a majority of the stories. Yet, there is something entertaining about Fi...

3.0 I feel I'm being generous giving ★ ★ ★ to The Girl with the Windup Heart by Kady Cross
When my wife's friend recommended this series to us, I didn't even notice it was published by Harlequin Teen until I was well into the first (and best) of the series. By contrast, I don't think there was a page in this one that didn't scream Harlequin, Teen, or both. Still, I'd enjoyed this X-Men ...
