Waiting on Wednesday (114): THE MECHANICAL by Ian Tregillis

WOW 2014 copy

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:

MGear-2

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.

    I’ve never even heard of Ian Tregillis but this one does sound super interesting. Sorta steampunk I’m guessing? Great pick! 🙂

  2. Haha, this is going to be one of my future WoWs as well. I love Ian Tregillis! I’ve enjoyed his Milkweed Triptych, even though I still need to read the third book, and Something More than Night was awesome. I have high hopes for this one and let’s cross our fingers it’ll be good!

  3. What a cool cover! I watched a movie called The Giant Mechanical Man but that is quite a different concept (good though!) The synopsis really appeals to me and I can’t wait to hear more about this one.
