The Strange Case of Finley Jayne by Kady Cross

Fate My Blood Approves, 2. The joy of steampunk, to me, is the wonder those authors, thinkers, and artists imagined of the future.

Item s unavailable for purchase. I loved how the author blended history and fantasy together. Phoebe’s mother is worried about the man her daughter is to marry and hires Finley to find out his secrets, which are darker than she could ever imagine.

The Strange Case of Finley Jayne is absolutely a must read! Why Lady Morton wants her specifically despite her reputation makes her suspicions, but she can’t past up the chance.


The Steampunk Chronicles

crpss Her dark side takes over when it cans and makes her do things she wouldn’t otherwise. Yes, I know, it’s a novella. Due to variances in postal delivery services we cannot guarantee processing time, but your parcel will usually arrive within 14 working days of your order. I enjoy the genre; I love the contraptions and gadgets.

After being fired from her position as a maid for hitting the governess after she made one of the small children cry Finley is worried that she won’t be able to find a new job, and that her darker side is coming out more often. It is a great introduction to Finley, who is an exciting heroine.

She is intelligent,stubborn,brave,unique,and stands up for the weak. I say the story is disappointing because even though it was obvious the author did a lot of research on the time period, there were two things she failed at: Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. I liked Finley’s character, but we are never told what she is. I found him to be utterly miserable as a human being who would sell his daughter to clear his debt.

I am now a proud patron of Brushes and Bunnies on Patreonand you should be too: Jul 04, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Quotes from The Strange Case Instead, the machines and language of the period fall short of all they could convey. Her abilities aren’t really explained here but left mysterious, Finley still getting the hang of things herself and doesn’t understand why she is the way she is. But that is not all, she has another problem and she fears that it will be the fall of her.

I mean it was really obvious from the get-go. When she gets angry, a strange power inside her kicks in that has super strength. Mar 16, Petra rated it liked it. So she’s extremely surprised when Lady Morton shows up at her step-father’s business asking to hire her, at a very high salary, as a companion for her daughter Phoebe, a position she is much too lowly to be offered.


Mar 12, Ariela rated it it was ok. Finley, she feels, is the perfect person to protect her daughter Phoebe from harm. Makes me wonder if it comes from her father’s side somehow perhaps, hmm. Kadyy much stronger and faster than she should be, she can also hear and see better than a normal person, and all her unusual abilities are more pronounced when her dark side comes out.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Finley agrees with Phoebe’s mother od can’t be anything good. We offer two rates for UK delivery — standard and special.

Normal girls don’t lose time, or have something inside them that makes them capable of remarkably violent things. I say this story is lackluster, because even though Cross does include elements of the steampunk genre, she does nothing to highlight the wonder it has to offer.

Which wasn’t the case.

Her behavior has already cost her one job, so when she’s offered the lofty position of companion to Phoebe, a debutante recently engaged to Lord Vincent, she accepts, despite having no experience. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. This short story was actually at the beginning of the ebook The Girl in the Steel Corset, and I have to say I like Finley more in this ccross than in the actual book.

I’ve seen this series floating around in the Internet as well as the love I already have for Kady Cross under her other names. Find out more about OverDrive accounts.
