Book Review: The Girl in the Clockwork Collar

Well, better late than never. I couldn't wait to review The Girl with the Clockwork Collar but of course I couldn't start book 2 in The Steampunk Chronicles series until I read book 1. Book 1 the girl in The Girl in the Steel Corset set the stage for this book very well.

In this series I loved the mystery of mixing modern day mystery and devices with what some would consider archaic scenes. Starting with the cover of this book, I was hooked but I will admit it was a very slow read. In my opinion, it was a little wordy at times with the explanation of things, almost like the reader was incapable of forming an idea of the scenes or situations that it had to be explained in too much detail. The story concept is fantastic and a nail-bitter, I wanted to keep reading just to find out what happens and who really was "evil" and who was "good". Many twist and turns kept my interest, but again the wordiness seemed to take away from the storyline some.

In summary, I would recommend reading this series simply because the story is just too good to miss out on.
