Today I’m participating in "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I love steampunk. I read and post about new YA (and adult!) releases in the genre as much as I can. Those books may be of varying quality, but from the fully-realized scientific alternate world of Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan to the rip-roaring action of Kady Cross' The Girl with the Steel Corset to the smoldering romance of Meljean Brook's The Iron Seas series, they all capture my fancy. Every now and then I'll hear of an upcoming book that sounds, well, fantastic. This is one of those. Andrea Cremer's The Inventor's Secret will be released on April 22, 2014 by Philomel (Penguin Random House). Next spring can't get here fast enough to suit me!
The Inventor’s Secret is the first book of a YA steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century North America where the Revolutionary War never took place and the British Empire has expanded into a global juggernaut propelled by marvelous and horrible machinery.
What books are you waiting on?
