Ironskin | Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday at The Reading Fever
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

Book cover for Ironskin by Tina Connolly
Ironskin by Tina Connolly (Ironskin #1)
Publisher: Tor Books
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Steampunk
Publication Date: 2 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.

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

This story just sounds awesome! I was drawn to it from the get go (it's no secret that I love the fey), and then I read the last paragraph and realized that it's a retelling of Jane Eyre--and almost went crazy about it. Jane Eyre + fey + steampunk? I need this book now!! :)

What are you waiting on?
