Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW pick for this week is:

Magic Under Stone by Jaclyn Dolamore

For star-crossed lovers Nimira and Erris, there can be no happily ever after until Erris is freed from the clockwork form in which his soul is trapped. And so they go in search of the sorcerer Ordorio Valdana, hoping he will know how to grant Erris real life again. When they learn that Valdana has mysteriously vanished, it's not long before Nimira decides to take matters into her own hands—and begins to study the sorcerer's spell books in secret. Yet even as she begins to understand the power and limitations of sorcery, it becomes clear that freeing Erris will bring danger—if not out-and-out war—as factions within the faerie world are prepared to stop at nothing to prevent him from regaining the throne.

Released in: April 2012

WoW because: This is the second Jaclyn Dolamore book I've picked, but this is the one I've been waiting most for - the sequel to Magic Under Glass. The first book was a fantasy steam-punk retelling of Jane Eyre - what part of that doesn't sound fabulous? However, the ending was unsatisfying, so this second book should fix that. I'm loving the idea of Nimira using the sorcerer's spell books and discovering the magic she can do.


  1. Interesting choice. I have her Between the Sea and Sky on my TBR list.

  2. Ooh, Magic Under Glass sounds amazing... how had I missed that? Maybe I'll wait to read it until the next comes out so I won't have to wait and be tormented by the ending! :)

  3. This sounds like a great book! Cool choice :)
