Waiting on Wednesday (73) — Ironskin by Tina Connoly

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

Ironskin (Ironskin, #1)

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

Ironskinย will beย released in October 2012 by Tor Books.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Oooh–I might have to beg TOR for this one, it sounds so great. Kind of thought it might be “Man in the Iron Mask”-y but I do love a Fae story.
