Overview

Before he makes his appearance in The Girl with the Iron Touch, Jack Dandy had an adventure of his very own. Learn how his actions set the plot in motion in The Dark Discovery of Jack Dandy, a short teaser story from author Kady Cross's Steampunk Chronicles.

Jack Dandy didn't become prince of the London underworld at barely twenty-one by being softhearted, even if a certain girl in a steel corset has wormed her way into his affections of late. He knows how to manipulate, charm and rob people blind. And if his criminal activities embarrass his aristocratic father, so much the better.

So when a friend of Jack's father hires him for an underhanded job, Jack is happy to oblige—for an outrageous fee, of course. Delivering a mysterious crate seems like an easy task—until Jack realizes just what is inside…

Don't miss the conclusion to Jack's escapade in The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross, available now from Harlequin TEEN.

I thought this was a great story. It gave insight into Jack Dandy's history and character. I always found him intriguing in the Steampunk novels and wanted to know more. This novella tells about his childhood and how he came to be what he is. It also explains his strange but fierce connection in the last novel with the automaton/ girl Mila. There were some things that were not fully explained but were brought up that was a little confusing such as Jack's possible "talent" and what the true purpose the person who hired him to steal Mila had but overall it was very good!
