Review: The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross

I loved how taut Ms. Cross’s writing was through this, and how she weaved witty banter with a seamless world-building that really had me fascinated. Finley, too, I adored as the strong, self-sufficient, and self-assured heroine she was. She is not a normal girl, and has some “gifts” that we got bare glimpses of, but I already know her life will be interesting, and I can’t wait to see how!
