Cynical Reader

Give me a happily-ever-after fairy-tale and I'll fight you every step of the way, but give me a tragic, grief-ridden story and I'll let it consume me.

The Girl with the Iron Touch - Kathryn Smith Another fun read from The Steampunk Chronicles.

"Fun" is the same description I had for [b:The Girl in the Clockwork Collar|13060608|The Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Steampunk Chronicles, #2)|Kady Cross|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1361759116s/13060608.jpg|16936400],and truthfully I'm not sure how else to describe my feelings for this series. There is action and some kick-ass girls who kick some ass. It's like candy. And I like it. And luckily, I think there are supposed to be more books in the future =)

The only qualm I had with The Girl with the Iron Touch in particular was it seemed to be more revolved around romance. But what can you expect from a third book? Surely their relationships had to be more evolved. So it's not really a complaint, just a personal issue. There was no eye-rolling because I do want the characters to be together, I just don't like reading the sappy personal moments. I don't even like hearing myself say such lovey dovey things. (Which is probably why I'm single, no?)
