Waiting on Wednesday (57)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I have a metal themed WoW!!

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney - To be released February 1st, 2010

Freak. That's what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. Donna's own nearly fatal injuries from the assault were fixed by magic—the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. The child of alchemists, Donna feels cursed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. The only thing that keeps her sane and grounded is her relationship with her best friend, Navin Sharma.

When the darkest outcasts of Faerie—the vicious wood elves—abduct Navin, Donna finally has to accept her role in the centuries old war between the humans and the fey. Assisted by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout with secrets of his own, Donna races to save her friend—even if it means betraying everything her parents and the alchemist community fought to the death to protect.

Why I want this: I absolutely adore the cover of this. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. It is one of my top ten favourite covers of the year. And the summary sounds incredible. What is she holding, though?? *so intrigued*

The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge - To be released February 22nd, 2010

In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dust. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical—born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is growing shorter by the day.

Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.


(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: This is another one with a GORGEOUS cover. This might just come right after the other one on my top ten cover list. :P And, wow, but it sounds awesome.

Alright, that's everything!

Peace and cookies,
Laina
