Summary (from Goodreads):
In 1897 London, something not quite human is about to awaken
When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends' lives.
With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him...and for Griffin.
Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine.
To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation—an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has....
After absolutely loving both The Girl in the Steel Corset and The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, I cannot wait to get my hands on the the third novel in the Steampunk Chronicles! This series is thrilling, adventurous, and filled with steampunk awesomeness on every single page. How will Emily escape from The Machinist when she's surrounded by the automatons? Will the reappearance of Jack Dandy drive a wedge between Finley and Griffin just when they've begun to acknowledge their feelings for each other? I'm sure there's bound to be tons of danger and tension in The Girl with the Iron Touch!
