Cover Lover #1

So when I saw that Hannah over at Once Upon A Time (click image) had started a feature for random covers that catch her eye, I super wanted to join, and not just because the rainbow heart is “naff” ;-). I’ve been toying with some cover feature for a while because I do have a big love for covers, so this was perfect :D.

This week is Ironskin by Tina Connolly. I’m a huge fan of the mask and the misty cloak/fog. It just looks so gorgeous and, when combined with the name of the book, makes me really interested in what it is about!

From Goodreads:

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask.

It’s the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain—the ironskin.

When a carefully worded listing appears for a governess to assist with a “delicate situation”—a child born during the Great War—Jane is certain the child is fey-cursed, and that she can help.

Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is hard enough; she certainly didn’t expect to fall for the girl’s father, the enigmatic artist Edward Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio…and come out as beautiful as the fey.

Jane knows Rochart cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things is true? Step by step Jane unlocks the secrets of her new life—and discovers just how far she will go to become whole again.

It looks really interesting too!

  1. I agree, it’s a really atmospheric cover. I think the stairs and the background really make the cover perfect – without it the cover might look a bit flat.

    • Oo, good point! I couldn’t pin down exactly what made it seem so inviting, but yes, the stairs going into the background definitely add dimension!

  2. Ooh I love it! Very atmospheric :D
