I read the HC edition of this but I could not find the prequel "The Strange Case Of Finley Jayne" but it was part of this edition. Took about 30 minutes to read and was worth the hold time to be able to read the short story!

Borrowed this one and book 2 at the same time. Read both and only wish I had book 3 right now to read. Great read, made me laugh and feel for the characters

This story ran like a bad harlequin romance. Wait! That is just what it is but for teens. Ugh. There are so many more interesting books for teens to read. Try Starcrossed or Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.

Dr. Jekyll/Mr Hyde + steam punk + gentle men + a super strong heroine who totally kicks butt

A thoroughly enjoyable mix of teen romance, steampunk, and superhero-esque abilities, the novel is entertaining throughout. The entire cast of characters are wonderful creations that I was thrilled to meet, and the plot had just enough twists to keep the pages passing quickly. Absolutely enjoyable from start to finish.

What an amazing book!! An ideal read for people who like Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and where a teenage girl is more pwerful than half the guys in the book. Read the book, trust me, you'll love it
