“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Adrienne Kress
♡ Release Date: December 6, 2012 (North America)
♡ Publisher: Flux (North America)
♡ Synopsis: Be your own hero . . .
Set in London at the turn of the last century, the novel follows the stories of three intelligent and very talented young women, all of whom are assistants to very powerful men: Cora, lab assistant to a member of parliament; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant to a martial arts guru; and Nellie, a magician’s assistant. The three young women’s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It’s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder—and the crimes they believe may be connected to it‐‐without calling too much attention to themselves.
Told with Adrienne Kress’s sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
♡ Why?: Steampunk? Unladylike ladies? This sounds right up my alley – complete with murder and friendship. This sounds awesome and I really hope it lives up to its teaser hype. It publishes two days before my birthday! This is going to be awesome. I hope.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
