Waiting on Wednesday. Heart of Iron

Wednesday, 20 December 2017

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week on WoW is Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston. Look at this beautiful cover! *.* And, the premise is so alluring: "a girl without a past, a boy without a future". 💗 Since I read the Starbound trilogy that I've been trying to read more sci-fi (any recommendations?) and Heart of Iron reminds me so much of it. I can't wait to get my hands on this beautiful book, which will be released on February 27th 2018.

Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09—one of the last remaining illegal Metals—has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.

Ana’s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep them.

When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after them—and the coordinates—and not everyone wants them captured alive.

What they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their lives—and unearth dangerous secrets. But when a darkness from Ana’s past returns, she must face an impossible choice: does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves?
From Goodreads


  1. I had read contemporaries from Poston, but never sic-fi. This one sounds a little space-opera, which is honestly more my speed, so it could work. I love the Starbound books too! Have you read the Illuminae Files? They are incredible!! There is an indie author I love too, Susan Kaye Quinn. Her books are great. (I don't read a ton of sic-fi)

  2. Pretty cover and the synopsis sounds interesting. I don't know that I'm in a hurry to pick it up, but maybe I would grab it if I see it at the library.

  3. Oh my goodness... that cover is amazing! Sounds good too! Hope you enjoy it! :)

  4. I've been dribbling over this cover for some time... And the premise sounds wonderful! If you looking for more sci fi, a couple more great space opera authors - Sabrina Chase and her Sequoyah series and S.J. Pajonas. Both are indie authors who write cracking adventures. My CWW this week is a cosy mystery coming out on New Year's Day - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/12/20/cant-wait-wednesday-20th-december-2017/

  5. I LOVE the cover! This sounds SO good!

  6. Wonderful cover, and oh my, after just seeing Star Wars, that she wants to save D09 is just <3

  7. Beautiful cover, hope you´ll enjoy your pick. Thanks for sharing.
