Waiting on Wednesday [7]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases. It's hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick: Magic Under Glass by Jackyln Dolamore

Nimira is a foreign music-hall girl forced to dance for mere pennies. When wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing with a piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it is the start of a new and better life. In Parry's world, however, buried secrets are beginning to stir. Unsettling below-stairs rumors swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry's involvement with a league of sorcerers who torture fairies for sport. Then Nimira discovers the spirit of a fairy gentleman named Erris is trapped inside the clockwork automaton, waiting for someone to break his curse. The two fall into a love that seems hopeless, and breaking the curse becomes a race against time, as not just their love, but the fate of the entire magical world may be in peril.


This book sounds pretty amazing. I love that there is a wide variety of magic and creatures in this short blurb alone--the mention of automatons, ghosts, and sorcerers caught my attention immediately. Magic Under Glass sounds like it'd be a great read, and I can't wait to see in bookstores. Actually, this would make a good Christmas present! :)

*puts on wish list*

Release Date: December 22, 2009
