Mini Review--The Wild Adventure of Jasper Renn by Kady Cross

In this companion novella to The Girl with the Iron Touch, American cowboy Jasper Renn finds himself in a situation his lightning-fast skills cannot rescue him from…

After surviving a triumph-turned-tragedy in New York City, Jasper is determined to secure a happier future with his gifted band of friends. So when the group's mechanical genius Emily is abducted, he'll plunge into England's darkest places to rescue her….

But his old flame Wildcat is turning London town upside down to find her missing sister, and Jasper finds the attraction between himself and the fierce beauty as tempting and dangerous as ever. Their trail leads deep into the city's most unusual circus. Soon, Jasper will find his loyalties—and future—tested more than he could ever imagine….

And don't miss Jasper's continuing exploits in The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross, available now from Harlequin TEEN.

The Wild Adventure of Jasper Renn is a short novella that takes place during Kady Cross' The Girl with the Iron Touch! I love this series and Jasper has definitely been one of my fave characters since he first stepped onto the page. His heartache over Mia and all that happened between them broke my heart as well, it seemed Jasper might never find what Griffin has with Finley.

Then there's Cat, half black, half white and has the abilities of her namesake. She's an oddity, much like her sister Sparrow--you can guess what abilities she has--who has gone missing. Cat has come to London in order to find her sister, but she doesn't know the city well and she needs the help of the man who broke her heart, one Jasper Renn. She's leery of trusting him again, but a part of her does still care for him, much to her dismay.

The two eventually work out a way to work together in order to find Sparrow. And along the way, old feelings get rekindled and explored! I was very pleased with this tiny tale from Kady Cross's Steampunk Chronicles! Jasper is definitely a fave character as I mentioned. He's quite witty and funny! I was glad to see him find his bit of happiness as he's been in a funk since Mei died and betrayed him.

It was quite a fast paced read as most novellas tend to be! Since it's been too long since I read The Girl with the Iron Touch, I cannot explicitly remember Jasper doing this during those particular events, but it's no matter really! I'm sure when I read The Girl with the Windup Heart, enough of my memory of the previous book will return!

This was a fun read that was doable in one sitting and I would highly recommend it to fans of The Steampunk Chronicles.

Overall Rating 5/5 stars
