Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. The idea for this topic is to "spotlight" a book that we are waiting on. 

This week, I am waiting on:

Ironskin by Tina Connolly 
 Expected publication: October 2012 by Tor Books

Summary:  Jane Eliot wears an iron mask. 

It's the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain -- the ironskin. 

Now Jane returns to the war-torn country to help a fey-cursed child. Helping the unruly Dorie suppress her curse is hard enough -- she certainly didn't expect to fall for the girl's father, the enigmatic artist Mr. Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio -- and come out as beautiful as the fey. 

Jane knows he cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things are true? Step by step Jane must unlock the secrets of her new life -- and discover just how far she will go to become whole again

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?


  1. Oh, I've never heard of this one. But I love that cover! Great pick, Sara!

    Stop by my WoW

  2. I don't know why but this one reminds me a little of Jane Eyre. But it sounds great!! I'll have to add this one to my list. I wish it was out now for my Fairy Week!


  3. I love this cover. The mask s really pretty. I so want to read about Fey. I have to admit that I first thought about the man in the Iron Mask with Leo.
