If you've been enjoying the clockwork intrigue of Kady Cross' "The Steampunk Chronicles," which kicked off last year with the heavy metal clang of "The Girl in the Steel Corset," you might want to remove your oxidized glass goggles before reading any further...the better to gaze upon our EXCLUSIVE cover reveal for the last book in the series, "The Girl With the Iron Touch."
After two cross-continental adventures in their ongoing battle against their robotic enemies, Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" should be able to relax, recoup and enjoy a little late 19th-century breather. After all, the Machinist is dead, everyone's safe, and they've even got the gifted Emily, a girl who can literally speak the language of all things mechanical, on their side. (That's her on the cover, by the way.) But when Emily is kidnapped by a new breed of rogue automatons, a new threat emerges: the possibility that her talents could resurrect their genius arch nemesis and destroy everything they hold dear. Oh, my! Bring over the fainting couch and help us loosen our corset, would you? It's all too exciting! And if you're loving this early peek at the sumptuous cover of "The Girl With the Iron Touch," then make sure to mark your calendar: It'll hit shelves in June 2013.
