Waiting on Wednesday (23)

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

I've had my ups and downs with this series, but I've overall liked the first two books in Caitlin Kittredge's Iron Codex series. The cover for the third novel, The Mirrored Shard, was just recently revealed and it nearly made me swoon when I saw it. From the model's expression and pose to the background and the colors, I love everything about it! I'm sad to see the series coming to an end (I think this is the end, at least), but I'm sure it will be satisfying.

The Mirrored Shard

Aoife Grayson must face death to win back Dean—the love who was ripped from the Iron Lands of the living when he was shot in the arctic north. But getting to the Deadlands is something that Aoife can't do on her own. And if she can find a way there, Tremaine would surely never allow it. He has sworn to keep her in the Thorn Lands, the fairie home of her mother, Nerissa. But Aoife is determined to find her way out. And she has no trouble if that means she has to kill Tremain and his queen to do it.

    1. It's definitely an unusual series, that's for sure. It's not one I would recommend to every single person, but it's got its high points and you're not going to read another book just like it.

  2. I have been wanting to start this series ever since I saw the author at Yall Fest last year. Great pick! I hope you get to read it soon.

    1. I like to think this series blends in so much because it's very... different from other YA books right now. It's not a fantastic series, I admit, but it's always been a fun read for me. I hope you can read it soon and see how you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. I think I liked the second cover more because of the blue while this one is so brown, which is not to my taste. I can't wait to read the conclusion-hopefully it will end strong!

  16. This sounds interesting. Is it a sequel? The synopsis makes it sound like a sequel. I'm asking because I may want to add the first book to my wish list. :) Anyway, good pick!

    1. Yep, it's the third book in the series. The first book is The Iron Thorn and the second is The Nightmare Garden and though they've both got their issues, I had fun reading them. Thank you for stopping by!

I love hearing what others have to say about books and it makes me feel less like I'm talking to an empty auditorium, so comment away. Thank you for reading my blog post!
