Waiting on Wednesday: Ironskin (29)

Waiting on Wednesday by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I am waiting on...
Ironskin by Tina Connolly

Expected Publication Date: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Tor
Synopsis: 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. 

When a carefully worded listing appears for a governess to assist with a "delicate situation"—a child born during the Great War—Jane is certain the child is fey-cursed, and that she can help. 

Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is hard enough; she certainly didn’t expect to fall for the girl’s father, the enigmatic artist Edward 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 Rochart 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 is true? Step by step Jane unlocks the secrets of her new life—and discover just how far she will go to become whole again.
Why I'm Waiting: I haven't read too many faerie books, but this one sounds great! It's a retelling of Jane Eyre, so you know it's going to be fabulous. I can't wait for this release! The concept is intriguing, the cover is beautiful, and I'm sold. :)

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. Ironskin does sound amazing. I love the cover as well. Faerie books tend to be either hit or miss with me, so hopefully this one is a hit. Great choice.

  2. I love the title and cover of this novel, plus.. the blurb doesn't sound too bad either. *g*
