Finley Jayne knows she's not "normal". Normal girls don't lose time, or have something inside them that makes them capable of remarkably violent things. Her behavior has already cost her one job, so when she's offered the lofty position of companion to Phoebe, a debutante recently engaged to Lord Vincent, she accepts, despite having no experience. Lord Vincent is a man of science with his automatons and inventions, but Finley is suspicious of his motives where Phoebe is concerned. She will do anything to protect her new friend, but what she discovers is even more monstrous than anything she could have imagined.
An exclusive prequel to The Steampunk Chronicles.

This is a short story which is a prequel introduction to a series. I found it enjoyable. Finley was an interesting and pretty likeable character, but I found the plot a bit silly. As far as "Steampunk", I'm not sure I would quite classify it as such. There are automatons, etc. But the Victorian atmosphere was very thin. I may read the next (officially first) book in this series, but was not inspired to want to do so right away.
I would listen to this again in fact the first thing I did when I finished was to see if there were any more books by this author
the narrator was easy to listen to. She has a very clear and pleasant voice and does characters very nicely
I loved every thing about the book except the ending. I wanted it to go on and on with no ending. I have listened to it over fifty time and own all the books.
this short story was a enjoyable romp and a great introduction to the world of the steampunk chronicles. i can't tell you to much without ruining the story but if your a steampunker or new to steampunk and want something that's light and enjoyable i'd defiantly recommend not only the Strange case of Finley Jane but the serous that it prequels
great for teens and pre-teens,
