In 1897 London, something not quite human is about to awaken
When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends' lives.
With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him…and for Griffin.
Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine.
To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation—an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance of triumph, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has….
I absolutely love this series. It is fast, fun, romantic and has tons of action scenes. I love that its steampunk and the entire series has had me glued to the pages. What a wonderful series.

Interview with Griffin King:
RT: What were you exact thoughts the first time you laid eyes on
Griffin: “My God, I hope I didn’t kill her.”
RT: You and Jasper have such a tight bond, how did you two first
meet and what made you two so close?
Griffin: I found myself in a bit of a mess one night, and if it wasn’t for
Jasper’s quick reflexes I might not be talking to you right now.
I cannot give you the particulars of what I was doing because it
was a secret matter for the Crown.
RT: Explain how the three of you, Sam, and Emily became to
be such a tight team?
Griffin: Sam and I have been best friends since we were children. He’s
more my brother than friend. Emily and I immediately took
to one another, and I had a feeling she wanted to leave the
town she was in, so I hired her. Lucky for me she is the most
intelligent person I’ve ever met. We’re tight because we respect
and care for one another. We look out for one another.
RT: So far, you have kept your distance (for the most part) between
you and Finley. I know you have feelings for her, that's obvious.
When will you stop being such a gentleman and kiss her until
her knees wobble? :)
Griffin: That’s a very impertinent question. I’m not the sort who kisses
and tells tales. However, I am told to suggest that you read The
Girl with the Iron Touch to find out.
