#BookReview: Shadow of the War Machine (The Secret Order #3) by Kristin Bailey

Publisher: Simon Pulse
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: Science Fiction (Steam-Punk) 
About the Book:

Meg has come a long way from her days as a lowly housemaid, driven to learn the truth behind her parents’ murder. She’s since discovered that they were part of the Secret Order of Modern Amusementists — an underground society of inventors. Determined to reclaim her heritage, she joined the Amusementists as an apprentice, but that hasn’t brought her closer to the person responsible for the loss of her family: the man in the clockwork mask.

Now he is coming for her. But Meg is tired of being hunted and she intends to become the hunter. With help from Will, the boy who holds her heart, Meg embarks on an adventure that takes them far from the cold London winter and into the heart of France.

But the City of Light is filled with dark shadows. There’s a plot afoot that could turn the tides of a terrible war, and cost the lives of millions — that is, if it doesn’t take the lives of everyone Meg holds dear, including her own.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I really wanted to love this one but it was just missing so much. 
Do I Recommend this book? If you were a die hard fan of this series this last title might leave you wanting more. 

Notes and Opinions: When I started this one I was really excited but as it went on I found myself wondering what in the world this author was doing.  Side characters were in the story then out of the story and it just felt like a big old mess to me.  I really wanted to love this last book to this series that I have falling in love with but it just didn't work out. So many thing need to be fixed in this one.
