Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Iron Cast by Destiny Soria. I love when history and fantasy are mixed into one and this book definitely has it! Through in some run-ins with the law, hints of a possible romance and lots of adventure and this books sounds totally awesome. I was recently approved for an eARC of this book on NetGalley *woo* and look forward to starting it soon. 🙂 It is scheduled to be released on October 11th.
Synopsis: It’s Boston, 1919, and the Cast Iron club is packed. On stage, hemopaths—whose “afflicted” blood gives them the ability to create illusions through art—captivate their audience. Corinne and Ada have been best friends ever since infamous gangster Johnny Dervish recruited them into his circle. By night they perform for Johnny’s crowds, and by day they con Boston’s elite. When a job goes wrong and Ada is imprisoned, they realize how precarious their position is. After she escapes, two of the Cast Iron’s hires are shot, and Johnny disappears. With the law closing in, Corinne and Ada are forced to hunt for answers, even as betrayal faces them at every turn.
