    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
Finley Jane?
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.

  1. This is the first time I've heard about these, now I'm dying to ready them!

  2. Love this series!! I'd love to know more about Griffin's power (which hopefully we will learn even more about in this third book ;)).
    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Ninja Girl

  3. How am I EVER going to get through my TBR pile when things like this have to go to the top? Thanks for sharing!

  4. I need to read these!! You and Elisa are always talking about how awesome they are! :D

  5. These books are so good! I'm currently reading the 2nd one, The Girl with the Clockwork Collar. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  6. Great giveaway for a great series!

  7. Oh, to answer your question, I don't want to know anything about Griffin ahead of time. You have to savor these things as they unwind.

  8. Oh, as for what I'd like to know about Griffin: definitely more about his power and the Aether itself. It's still sort of a mystery to me despite Kady Cross's explanations of it in the two books. I'd also like to know if the thought of marrying Finley has crossed his mind. And maybe too whether or not he gives any of his abundance of money to help those who are less fortunate than him.

  9. What do you think of this series?

  10. I am not sure what I would want to know. I haven't read this series yet, but I love Steampunk and it is now on my TBR pile (gotta love ereaders) I can't wait until the new book releases.

  11. I haven't read this series yet. It sounds like Dr. Who so I'm very much want to read this series. As for Griffin, the only thing that pop in my head is the mythological creature with the head of an eagle and the body of the lion.

  12. I've yet to read this series so I don't really know much about Griffin as it is, so right now I'd like to know as much as possible, lol.

  13. I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING!! Okay that might be a bit much for my tiny brain! LOL! I really want to know more about Griffin and Finley's relationship! Jack Dandy is going down!!!! Can't wait to read The Girl with the Iron Touch!!!!!

  14. I want to know more about Griffin's background but more than that I want to know more about his relationship with Finley!

  15. I haven't read this series yet, so I would like to know everything! :)

  16. My question is: What embarrassing story from your childhood does Sam not want you to tell?

  17. I have no idea what I would ask I just picked up the first book the other day and can't wait to read it!

  18. I want to know if Griffin will man up and admit to Finely he likes her!!!!!!!!!!!
    Mary G Loki

  19. I haven't started with this series yet but it's nice to have this little something from the character! :)

  20. I want to know more about his childhood and more to happen between him and Fineley...

  21. I would like to know more about Griffin's feelings for Finley. Maybe a short story from his point of view.

  22. Griffin is so clever. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next!
