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

The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles, #1)

In 1897 England, 16-year-old Finley Jayne is convinced she's a freak. No normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch. Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special . . . that she's one of "them."
**From Goodreads**
Stars: 4/5
I loved this book! It was an exciting read. I do want to say.....I would love to have a steel corset! Being set in the late 1800s this book was a must read for me. An included perk is a beautiful cover!

Finley is attacked by her employers son, and after escaping from him she meets Griffin. He takes her in and thus begins the friendship among Griffin and his friends with Finley. Griff and his friends learn that Finley has a dark side to her. Maybe with the help of her new friends she can find what the cause is of this dark side, and maybe even change it. Action, adventure, awesome inventions, friendship, arguements....you find all this in The Girl in the Steel Corset. A fantastic read! I love the different abilities each of the characters have.
