Waiting On Wednesday (1) Steel

Photobucket
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Steel
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Release Date: March 15th 2011
Publisher: Harper Teen
SynopsisWhen Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever? 

Drawing on piratical lore and historical fact, Carrie Vaughn creates a vivid world of swaying masts and swelling seas, where blood magic overrules the laws of nature, romance is in the air, and death can come at the single slip of a sword.

Why I'm waiting on it: I've never read a pirate story before, much less one starring a female, but with that synopsis - well I'm sold. Bring on March 15!

  1. Yes--this one sounds awesome. I just read THE DUST OF 100 DOGS, which partly features pirates. I've heard this is an amazing read. SO psyched to read Steel sometime soon.
