Steampunk!!! Steampunk is fast becoming a favourite genre of mine – and I caught the trailer for this the other day! For some reason I wasn’t aware The Girl in the Steel Corset was steampunk, I’d barely glanced at the cover before and figured it was another paranormal romance which just didn’t interest me, but now I’ve seen this fantastic trailer and read some reviews I cannot wait to get my hands on it! I love coming across stunning trailers like this as there are very few I actually like! Enjoy!
The Girl in the Steel Corset is a relatively new book – released in May this year. Check out the synopsis from Goodreads:
‘In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one except the thing inside her. When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But 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, says she’s one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits. Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret.
Griffin’s investigating a criminal called The Machinist, the mastermind behind several recent crimes by automatons. Finley thinks she can help and finally be a part of something, finally fit in. But The Machinist wants to tear Griff’s little company of strays apart, and it isn’t long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Finley knows whose side she’s on, even if it seems no one believes her.’
