THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH was a solid addition to The Steampunk Chronicles with lots of twists and fun concepts. The plot is pretty classic steampunk adventure with lots of interesting mechanical animals, odd human abilities, and one super creepy villain. A word of warning, The Steampunk Chronicles is one series where you should definitely start at the beginning with THE GIRL IN THE STEEL CORSET just to get all of the characters and plots straight.

THE GIRL IN THE CLOCKWORK COLLAR is an action packed prison break caper set in a fascinating steampunk world. I enjoyed the touches of steampunk technology throughout the book such as one character having a large mechanical panther and another riding a mechanical horse. I also loved that the famous inventor Tesla was an actual character here and not just referenced as the creator of some contraption that happens to help the characters save the day. Tesla himself even helps out in the final confrontation and I would have loved to have him in the story more; perhaps in his lab playing with his crazy inventions.
