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."

I've read this a while ago but I didn't want to put this aside without gushing about it just little bit.

What I loved were the characters. Every character was distinct and very specific. My favorite had to be Griff because he was full of surprises. Finley was a favorite in a different way. Unlike most girls Finley isn't afraid of walking the streets alone because she knows she can take on anyone. Even with this strength she's still vulnerable which makes her very real.

The story of their battle against the Machinist was very easy to follow with the occasion twists and turns that kept it interesting.

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5

  1. This book is one I finished up a couple of weeks ago, too. It was my first experience with this genre and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This one for me was really good. I agree with your assessment of Finley Jane, she really rocks. What did you think of Sam? He was irritating to me!
