Waiting on Wednesday 239


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"A Study in Silks"
by Emma Jane Holloway
Del Rey
Release Date: Sep 24, 2013

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Evelina Cooper, the niece of the great Sherlock Holmes, is poised to enjoy her first Season in London’s high society. But there’s a murderer to deal with—not to mention missing automatons, a sorcerer, and a talking mouse.
 
In a Victorian era ruled by a council of ruthless steam barons, mechanical power is the real monarch, and sorcery the demon enemy of the empire. Nevertheless, the most coveted weapon is magic that can run machines—something Evelina has secretly mastered. But rather than making her fortune, her special talents could mean death or an eternity as a guest of Her Majesty’s secret laboratories. What’s a polite young lady to do but mind her manners and pray she’s never found out?

But then there’s that murder. As Sherlock’s niece, Evelina should be able to find the answers, but she has a lot to learn. And the first decision she has to make is whether to trust the handsome, clever rake who makes her breath come faster, or the dashing trick rider who would dare anything for her if she would only just ask.
Oooh, Steampunk combined with Sherlock Holmes' niece! Sounds like so much fun!

What are you waiting for this week???

  2. I can't resist a book set in the victorian era, and this sounds like it could be good. It's been a while since my last steampunk read. Great choice! :)

  6. Heehee, have to admit, I thought the woman on the cover looks a lot like Kate Middleton. Anyway, sounds really good, with the Sherlock Holmes angle to it. Thanks.
