Waiting on Wednesday {#9}

Hosted by Breaking the Spine, a way to share upcoming highly anticipated releases.

The Iron Wyrm Affair by Lilith Saintcrow with a releases date of August 7th, 2012. 

Emma Bannon, Prime sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn’t much help that they dislike each other, or that Bannon’s Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen. In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Bannon and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs.

The game is afoot…

First of all, I like the cover.  Second, I can't seem to get enough of historical paranormal books lately and this one includes magic.  I've had such good luck finding spectacular books in this genre so far and I have high hopes for this one.  

What's your WOW?


  1. I love love love Lilith Saintcrow, especially her YA series, but I'll be sure to check this one out too! Great Pick, Emmy!
    My WoW!
    Happy Wednesday!

    1. I haven't read anything by her yet but can't wait for this one!

  2. The cover for this book is pretty bad ass right? Braine is dying to read this too. I've been too caught up with sexy contemporary men that I've started to ignore my PNR guy. HAHA!

    My WoW


    1. I just realized it says cover not final. Whoops. Still awesome though. I go back and forth between my genres all the time to keep it fresh.

  3. / hope they dont change it, looks pretty good to me.
