Waiting on Wednesday (66)

Ironskin by Tina Connolly

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.

Release date: October 2012 (Tor Books)

  2. Oh, you're right - this sounds AMAZING. Didn't realize it was also steampunk & Eyre! GAH, exciting. Great pick!

  3. This does look good, but I probably shouldn't read any books that encourage me to leave home and join a band!

  4. Sorry. Meant to comment on The Disenchantments!

  5. I'm super torn=I love retellings of classic novels like Jane Eyre but I've had such mixed experiences with fae stories. They often leave me disappointed.

  6. I just cannot wait for this one - it looks SO snazzy.

  7. This sounds great! A unique piece I can't wait to find out about more.


I love getting comments, so feel free to leave your thoughts :)
