The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“The Girl in the Clockwork Collar” is an endearing story in the Steampunk sub-genre, set in Victorian England and America. Full of science, magic, romance, suspense, gangsters, history, settings galore, this novel will keep the reader riffling those pages without realizing the passage of time. You will want to read this at one sitting because it’s just too compelling to put down. This is such a captivating novel that I immediately determined to read the prior books in the series (this is #2). Kady Cross is a skillful writer, who weaves actual historical fact with the spinning of her own imagination, and brings us a story that is simultaneously edge-of-the-seat suspenseful, and romantically cosy. “The Girl in the Clockwork Collar” is suitable for any YA readers, and anyone older. I recommend it highly!
