The Girl in the Clockwork Collar - Kady Cross

Perhaps not, but all Finley could think of at that moment was how badly hurt Emily had been when they went up against The Machinist and his automatons.


This is one the things that bothered me about this series.  Emily is CLEARLY not a fighter and yet insists on accompanying people on missions and such.  Why?  She's a liability in those cases and, since she can't fight for herself (what if just one of the Stereotypical Irish Immigrants has been immune to Emily's gloves and came at her?  Well, I bet at that point Finley would've hulked out but still), everyone else has to constantly look after her while also looking after themselves.
