On my want list...

The Iron Thorn
(The Iron Codex)
by Caitlin Kittredge

Description from the amazon:
In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dust. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical—born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is growing shorter by the day.

Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.

  1. Hey V!!!
    I love the cover of that book!
    It is gorgeous!!
    P.S.: I got your package and SQUEEEE!!
    Thanks so much!!!
    I'll make a post about it as soon as I can! XD

  2. Ooh, that sounds interesting! The only problem I'm having is in the pronounciation; how do you say "Aoife"? Too many vowels!!!
    Kelly's comment reminded me; I got the Zombies & Toys prize pack! So cool! It had a pair of hotpink skelly gloves, two packs of zombie action figures, a cool Z&T lanyard, and a veretible butt load of buttons. The action figures are amazing! You should see the detail, V. I'm going to post some pictures on my blog soon, but I don't think it'll show how detailed they are.
    BTW, LOVE the chandelier! I went to their site; have you seen the book table? It's really cool, but I wonder what books are now unreadable. :\

  3. That book looks fabu -- I'm so going to look for it!
