“Waiting On” Wednesday: Ironskin (Ironskin #1)

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.

I don’t even have much to say about this.  I saw the cover and it caught my eye.  I read the blurb and pretty much turned Neanderthal.  “Want.  Must have.”  That made me think about Captain Caaaaaaavemaaaaan, which made me laugh and have to explain it to my son which sort of made me depressed.  Books do strange things, don’t they?

Publication Date: Expected October 2012
Genre: Fantasy Steampunk

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.
