The Girl in the Clockwork Collar - Kady Cross Published on drey's library: http://www.dreyslibrary.com/2013/04/29/review-the-girl-in-the-clockwork-collar-by-kady-cross/When I saw the cover for The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, I knew I had to pick it up! I mean, how could I not – it’s an Asian girl, in a lovely purple dress, with this awesome necklace.At the end of The Girl in the Steel Corset, Jasper Renn is unceremoniously apprehended in London, to be brought back to America to face trial for a murder he’d supposedly committed. Unwilling to believe Jasper could be guilty as charged, his friends decide to follow him and get the real story…So sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her friends – Griffin King, Emily O’Brien, and Sam – head to America, too.They find two things when they get there. The first, that Jasper wasn’t brought back by the law. The second? There’s trouble to be found on this side of the ocean, too. And so the adventure begins! This time there’re no automatons running amok, but there’s still plenty to do as Jasper’s been caught in a net partly of his own weaving…There’s a love story. Betrayal and double-cross. Villain who threatens the lives of loved ones to ensure cooperation. Magical device to be shut down. Crazy inventors to meet. Help from unexpected quarters. And a wickedly appropriate ending. The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is fast-paced and entertaining, and I can’t wait to get my hands on The Girl with the Iron Touch, coming at the end of May!drey’s rating: Excellent!
