Dead Iron by Devon Monk
"Welcome to a new America that is built on blood, sweat, and gears...
In steam age America, men, monsters, machines, and magic battle for the same scrap of earth and sky. In this chaos, bounty hunter Cedar Hunt rides, cursed by lycanthropy and carrying the guilt of his brother's death. Then he's offered hope that his brother may yet survive. All he has to do is find the Holder: a powerful device created by mad devisers-and now in the hands of an ancient Strange who was banished to walk this Earth."
I am impatiently waiting for my library to get this book...I've had it on hold for weeks now!
Witchlanders by Lena Coakley
"High in their mountain covens, red witches pray to the Goddess, protecting the Witchlands by throwing the bones and foretelling the future.
It’s all a fake.
At least, that’s what Ryder thinks. He doubts the witches really deserve their tithes—one quarter of all the crops his village can produce. And even if they can predict the future, what danger is there to foretell, now that his people’s old enemy, the Baen, has been defeated?
But when a terrifying new magic threatens both his village and the coven, Ryder must confront the beautiful and silent witch who holds all the secrets. Everything he’s ever believed about witches, the Baen, magic and about himself will change, when he discovers that the prophecies he’s always scorned—
Are about him."
The cover on this book is just gorgeous!
The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma
"A page turner in which a skeptical H.G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time-travel and save lives."
This is a short and sweet description but I just can't resist. Plus, I love the cover on this one as well.
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross
"In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the "thing" inside her.
When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch….
Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special, says she's one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits: Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret."
I want this book right now! Love the cover, love the summary, can't wait to read it!
I want each and every one of these right now! And the covers on all four of these books are just stunning! I'm thinking about doing a romance wishlist next week as I've been on a romance kick all of a sudden. I've been requesting romance reads from the library like crazy :) Yay for good books!
