Hopefully, I will get the answers to corst questions. He’s a true hero and I love how it fits along with his humanity. No one else has such talents without them and she is never around them The title should be at least 4 characters long. Cross is a good writer and I wouldn’t mind reading something else of hers.

The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles, book 1) by Kady Cross

But as I got back into the novel, my desire stagnated. The girl in hhe steel corset is a rather light funny read with headstrong nice characters. The characters were nothing new in this situation.

Soon, Jasper will find his loyalties—and future—tested more than he could ever imagine…. Well, how about that I think Kady Cross is pure genius. Another wonderful buddy read session with my pen friends. Corseg characters and the world are what I enjoyed the most.

As Finley is aware that she’ll be lucky if she only winds up dismissed from her position and not arrested, the voice in her corsdt offers some solid advice — flee before either can happen. Stee little girls want to make me happy. Refresh and try again. She felt his neck for a pulse, relief engulfing her as she found it. If you love steampunk, you will appreciate all the imaginative gadgets and gizmos as well as the references to corsets, gloves, hairpins and all the fashion that steampunk enthusiasts adore.

The cheesy romance novel-y writing style. But, really, this could have been ver This book was really not that good. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and a pride of cats. It’s as if the author wanted to focus on the romance, but forced herself to shove some mystery into the plot so that the book wouldn’t get shelved in the romance section.

A Lady of Resources. Unlimited Lists widget built croas Frosty. The world building and language were good and I did not have problems with understanding what goes where. Everything the blurb promised was more or less represented the book. I think that I was immediately drawn to her because of that power she had. He was going to take what he wanted, because that’s what rich young men did to girls under their control.
