Waiting on Wednesday (6)

WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine!

I'm really excited about Jackie Dolamore's debut offering: Magic Under Glass! Jackie was awesome enough to send me a summary that was a little more descriptive than the ones I was finding! :) Thanks, Jackie!!


"Nimira is a music-hall girl used to dancing for pennies. So when wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing accompaniment to a mysterious piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it will be the start of a better life. In Parry's world, long-buried secrets are about to stir. Unsettling rumors begin to swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry’s involvement in a group of corrupt sorcerers for whom the rules of the living and dead are meant to be broken for greater power. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing fairy gentleman is trapped within the automaton, she is determined to break the curse. But even as the two fall into a love that seems hopeless, breaking the curse becomes a perilous race against time. Because it's not just the future of these star-crossed lovers that's at stake, but the fate of the entire magical world."


Ghosts? A madwoman? Corrupt socerers? Dashing fairy gentleman? Star-crossed lovers? The fate of the entire magical world!?! Yes, I definitely want this book! I love this kind of historical fantasy young adult blend... I have high, high hopes that it will be AMAZING! Plus, the cover is seriously awesome...

  3. I have a high hopes for this one as well. I read about the author on her Tenners profile and am very interested to find out what her writing is like since she was home schooled and never went to college.
