Giveaway: Silverblind by Tina Connolly!

I am so exited to be sharing with you a giveaway for Tina Connolly's newest release in her Ironskin series, Silverblind.  And let me tell you, the cover on this in person is just gorgeous!

As most of you know we just started the Something Wicked Strikes Blog Hop and this series fits in perfectly with the theme. This book is all about the magic, the strange, and the somethings that go bump in the night.

A huge thank you to Tina and to Tor for this great giveaway!!





Series: Book Three in the Ironskin Trilogy
Release Date: October 7, 2014
Publisher: Tor Books

Book Description:
The final book in this series will jump forward 18 years and feature Dorie, Jane's young charge from Ironskin.

18 years later . . .
Dorie Rochart has been hiding her fey side for a long time. Now, finished with University, she plans to study magical creatures and plants in the wild, bringing long-forgotten cures to those in need. But when no one will hire a girl to fight basilisks, she releases her shapechanging fey powers--to disguise herself as a boy.

While hunting for wyvern eggs, she saves a young scientist who's about to get steamed by a silvertail-- and finds her childhood friend Tam Grimsby, to whom she hasn't spoken in seven years. Not since she traded him to the fey. She can't bear to tell him who she really is, but every day grows harder as he comes to trust her.


The wyverns are being hunted to extinction for the powerful compounds in their eggs. The fey are dying out as humans grow in power. Now Tam and Dorie will have to decide which side they will fight for. And if they end up on opposite sides, can their returning friendship survive?

  17. I haven't read any of these, but I want to! I've been in a big Fae kick for a bit (and of course, all the variations of the word 'fae'). I like this idea of going to university to help the supernatural around her, and I like the changing into a boy because no one will hire her. Reminds me of Mulan. :)
