Literature: The Girl in the Steel Corset
Feel the Steampunk vibe yet?
The first novel of the "Steampunk Chronicles", a Young Adult series by Kady Cross. In Steampunk England in the year 1897, Finley Jayne must try to deal with her Split Personality. When she is threatened or angered, a dark, dangerous, and superstrong personality takes over her. After an incident, she is discovered by Griffin King, a Duke with some powers and secrets of his own. He offers her help and a place to stay with him and his friends, but she just doesn't feel like she belongs there. Yet.

The first installment is followed by The Girl in the Clockwork Collar. Finley and her friends must travel to America to rescue Jasper, who has been captured by a dangerous criminal who is after a device Jasper once stole from him. As leverage, Jasper's girlfriend Mei has been fitted with the titular collar, which can tighten around her neck whenever she misbehaves.

The third installment is The Girl with the Iron Touch. Wrench Wench Emily is kidnapped by their old enemy, the Machinist. Hoping to be resurrected, he forces her to transfer his consciousness into an automaton.

Described by the author as "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meets X-men."
