Waiting on Wednesday [8] - Ironskin

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Ironskin (Ironskin #1)
Author: Tina Connolly
Expected publication: October 2nd 2012
Publisher: Tor Books
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 discovers just how far she will go to become whole again.

Honestly, I'm only interested in this book because of the cover and that the first line in the synopsis reminds me of The Man In The Iron Mask.

Not really into faeries that much, I tried reading Julie Kagawa's The Iron King but still haven't finished it. :(
Hopefully this one would draw me to the genre.


  1. The cover is pretty cool, but I know fairy books can be hit or miss. It does sound like it has potential. Hope you like it when you get the chance to read it.

  2. Oh this book sounds sooo good! can't wait for this one. The cover stands out! I love it!
