Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that we’re “waiting” on with other bloggers and readers. Here’s my pick this week:
The Mechanical (The Alchemy Wars #1) by Ian Tregillis. Releases in March 2015 from Orbit. I’ve never read Tregillis before, although this isn’t his first book. But I really love this cover, which is what drew me in, and the story of a “mechanical man powered by alchemy” sealed the deal! Here’s the description from Goodreads:
My name is Jax.
That is the name granted to be by my human masters.
I am a clakker: a mechanical man, powered by alchemy. Armies of my kind have conquered the world – and made the Brasswork Throne the sole superpower.
I am a faithful servant. I am the ultimate fighting machine. I am endowed with great strength and boundless stamina.
But I am beholden to the wishes of my human masters.
I am a slave. But I shall be free.
Have you read Ian Tregillis’ other books? Let me know what you’re waiting on this week!
