e-novella review: the strange case of finely jane by kady cross

Book Summary Via Goodreads
Finley Jayne knows she's not 'normal'. Normal girls don't lose time, or have something inside them that makes them capable of remarkably violent things. 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. Lord Vincent is a man of science with his automatons and inventions, but Finley is suspicious of his motives where Phoebe is concerned. She will do anything to protect her new friend, but what she discovers is even more monstrous than anything she could have imagined…

Book Review
wow! this is one kick ass novella!!!

i have never read a book that is about the "steampunk" genre so i'm not sure what to expect when i was reading this one, but i really really liked this one!

the book is actually set in the 1800s, so more like this book is set in a Victorian Era. we get to meet Finely Jayne, a girl who can't stay on a decent job due to her lack of self control, she actually has a very incredible strength that is highly unusual for a girl.

i don't know but the book is written in a freaky,eerie way cause the novella itself is like retelling of Mary Shelly's Frankenstine, Lord Vincent is soooo freaky.. sheesh!
as i've said i'm new to this genre so i don't know what to expect, i guess a steampunk genre is like having modern stuff and victorian stuff combined together, cause in this novella even though it is set in the 1800s some stuff are a bit modern like mechanical horses and automatons, in a way this book reminds me of the anime full metal alchemist...

another thing i like about this book is Finely Jayne is one super bad-ass heroine... wow! would you chase after a mechanical horse to save someone?? can you kick the arse of two creepy hoodlums?? a normal girl will say HELL NO! but finely jayne can! haaaa! i wish i can be as tough as her. LOL

what's so strange about finely jayne?

i really can't put my finger on it, besides the fact that she has a super,extraordinary incredible human strength and she wears steel corset (lol KIDDING), what's really ticking on my mind is what is she??? is she some kind of robot?

i'm excited to read The girl in the Steel Corset to find out more about Finely Jayne... good thing netgalley grant my request for an ARC copy.. yay!
