Waiting on Wednesday #27

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week I'm waiting on The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge.
A series set in a Lovecraftian industrial city in an alternate 1950s that centers on a mechanically gifted young girl approaching her 16th birthday, the age at which everyone in her family goes insane, leaving it up to her to unravel the mystery of their madness--and save the world.
It is 1955...but not the 1955 you know. The Witchcraft Scare polarizes America. Magic is outlawed and practitioners are burned. And one girls has discovered that magic is neither fiction nor fairy tale, but very much alive...
Aoife Grayson is a month shy of sixteen, the age when everyone in her family goes mad. An orphan in the steam-powered city of Lovecraft, Massachusetts, Aoife escapes the confines of her repressive boarding school and along with her best friend Sam and outlaw guide Dean, sets out to discover the secret of her family's madness. What she discovers is a world of forbidden magic and faerie curses, and a dark secret that has shadowed the Grayson family for generations. Aoife must choose between keeping the secret or keeping her sanity, and unravel the dark machinations of the Winter Court of the Fae before it's too late to save her city...or herself.
Ummm.. yes please. Unfortunately this doesn't come out until Feb 2011. It does however give me something to look forward to in the new year.


  1. Whoa this sounds SO good! And I love love the cover. Can't wait :)

    Hmm I've been noticing a lot of titles with Iron in them haha.

  2. So out of my comfort but so so tempting!
