There’s a darkness within me something I can’t always control…….
If you like a girl with a secret side, you’re gonna love me……..
In 1897 England, 16 year old Finley Jayne is all alone except the “Thing” inside her. When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. No normal Victorian girl, much less maid, has a dark side that is capable of knocking out full-grown men to the ground with one punch…..
Only Griffin King sees the darkness inside her and says shes special. Shes one on them. He takes her into his band of misfits; Emily who has her own special ability and love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a dark, dark secret….
They are investigating a criminal called the Machinist, and man behind the making of evil automatons. Finley thinks she can help-and finally fit in.
The Machinist wants to tear apart the group of friends. Finley knows what sides shes on but no on seems to believe her.
This book is a must read. I loves the growing, forbidden love between Griffin and Finley. I love that even Finley’s mother has some of her own dark secrets. This is a truly one of a kind novel. When I was reading this book, I loved the protectiveness Griffin had for all of the ‘misfits.’
Should you read it? YES!
