LEGACY OF THE CLOCKWORK KEY by Kristin Bailey (WOW #118)

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Legacy of the Clockwork Key (The Secret Order, #1)

A teen girl unravels the mysteries of a secret society and their most dangerous invention in this adventure-swept romance set in Victorian London.

When a fire consumes Meg’s home, killing her parents and destroying both her fortune and her future, all she has left is the tarnished pocket watch she rescued from the ashes. But this is no ordinary timepiece. The clock turns out to be a mechanical key—a key that only Meg can use—that unlocks a series of deadly secrets and intricate clues that Meg is compelled to follow.

Meg has uncovered evidence of an elite secret society and a dangerous invention that some will stop at nothing to protect—and that Meg alone can destroy. Together with the handsome stable hand she barely knows but hopes she can trust, Meg is swept into a hidden world of deception, betrayal, and revenge. The clockwork key has unlocked her destiny in this captivating start to a trilogy.

LEGACY OF THE CLOCKWORK KEY will be released March 5th, 2013 from Simon Pulse.

    This does sound interesting. I like the mechanical bird on the cover, reminds me of the owl in Clash of the Titans. Nice pick.
    Happy holidays!

    Eep, a steampunk novel! I'm always looking for more Victorian era novels to read, they always turn out to be SO intriguing. And the fact that Meg loses her entire family definitely makes me think that there are going to be some serious dark and intriguing themes throughout this book…

    Fantastic pick Hafsah! It's totally going on my TBR list.
