Finley Jayne knows she's not 'normal'. Normal girls don't lose time, or have something inside them that makes them capable of remarkably violent things. Her behavior has already cost her one job, so when she's offered the lofty position of companion to Phoebe, a debutante recently engaged to Lord Vincent, she accepts, despite having no experience. Lord Vincent is a man of science with his automatons and inventions, but Finley is suspicious of his motives where Phoebe is concerned. She will do anything to protect her new friend, but what she discovers is even more monstrous than anything she could have imagined…
An ebook exclusive prequel to The Steampunk Chronicles.

Finley is my new hero! She's unexpectedly one of the coolest characters I have had the pleasure of reading. And all this after thinking I wouldn't be crazy about the story when I first read the date setting. I'm not a huge historical fan, but the era didn't matter. The substance of the book took over at all costs and I absorbed it quickly. Though I still haven't figured Finley out yet, but I like that too. Keeps a sense of suspense there.
Can't wait to get a copy of The Girl in the Steel Corset.
Recommend? Yes, it will definitely leave you wanting more!
