Waiting on Wednesday: Ironskin by Tina Connolly (Ironskin #1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for. 

Title: Ironskin by Tina Connolly
Published by: Tor Books
Release date: October 2012

 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.

Why I want to read it:  You mean besides this gorgeous cover?  Well, I like the idea of a heroine that is not perfect, the mystery of the fey curse, Mr. Rochart's talent and (hopefully) a great romance!

What are you waiting for this week?

  4. Me too. I think it'll be interesting to read how Jane deals with the scars. She sounds like a pretty tough girl so I know she won't be complaining all the time about them, but maybe she'll be selfconcious. Anyways! Great pick! lol
