The Girl With The Iron Touch by Kady Cross

I've been loving the The Steampunk Chronicles so I've been anxiously awaiting The Girl With Iron Touch. I think this has been my favorite of the series so far.
The other members of the group think of Emily as the weakest. Where as Finley and Sam are physically strong and Griffin can use the Aether to his will, Emily's talents are less oblivious. Emily is the girl with the iron touch. She can talk to machines and make them obey her. Not as useful in a fight as Finley or Sam's punches but very useful at other times. The rest of the group strives to protect Emily but when she is kidnapped how do they find her? Especially when they aren't able to communicate with her machines as easily.
Cross spent the first two books building Finley's world and creating the characters. I felt that there was more interactions between the characters and more time spent on the story. I greatly enjoyed getting to know everyone more. I especially loved how much Jack Dandy time there was. I do love Jack Dandy.
Now I have to wait til the next book is released! Cannot wait to continue the story. Others who shared their thoughts on The Girl With The Iron Touch: That's What She Read, The Red Reader Reviews, Read. Breathe. Relax., and The Overflowing Library.
