The Strange Case of Finley Jayne
The novella starts with Finley being fired for unjust reasons and has to move back home with her parents, but is soon called upon by Lady Morton, who wants to employ her as a companion to her daughter, Phoebe. Soon, Finley realizes that her job is just more to accompany Lady Phoebe - her reputation precedes her and Lady Morton expects more from Finley, much more than anyone realizes.
Finely is such a strong and wild character, who can also be very thoughtful, caring and feminine - a very well rounded character that only the brilliant Kady Cross could create and bring to life. The world building and steampunk touches in this short story are just the beginning to it all!
I highly recommend reading this novella and diving in to Finley's world and the Steampunk Chronicles!
Although this book had nothing to do with The Girl in the Steel Corset, I thought that it gave background into her family and the start of the 'dark' thing inside Finley. It didn't mention once about her job as a body guard in the main title, and I was a bit disappointed in that. I think that Finley should of thought about her good times before the thing inside her started to take over.
To conclude, I must say that this book is worth reading The Girl in the Steel Corset, or just want to start off with the prologue. This is a great short book, and I think in some parts I enjoyed this more than its follow up. I think that everyone should give it a try, it is short and awesome.
