It was awesome to meet so many of you during the YA Scavenger Hunt! The Hunt only lasted a day, so the exclusive material from Kady Cross is no longer available in this post, but I left Kady's bio and information about The Girl in the Steel Corset. Check out her website to learn more!
I'm so honored to be posting exclusive material from the fabulous Kady Cross! The first book in her Steampunk Chronicles was released in May to rave reviews. I also wish I had her makeup creation talent! You can read more about Kady below.
In her other life Kady Cross is a USA Today bestselling author of more than 20 books. She is lucky enough to have a husband who shares her love for the slightly twisted, and all things geek, and a houseful of cats with whom she shares her darkest secrets. When she’s not listening to the characters in her head she’s either trying to formulate the perfect lipgloss or teaching herself to solder. She has a weakness for all things girly, sugar skulls, and boots. Her love of books and makeup borders on addiction – from which she never, ever wants to be cured.
Kady is the author of the incredible Steampunk Chronicles series. Read about the first book in the series, The Girl in the Steel Corset.
In 1897 , sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the "thing" inside her.
When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch….
Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special, says she's one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits: Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret.
Griffin's investigating a criminal called The Machinist, the mastermind behind several recent crimes by automatons. Finley thinks she can help—and finally be a part of something, finally fit in.But The Machinist wants to tear Griff's little company of strays apart, and it isn't long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Finley knows whose side she's on—even if it seems no one believes her.
