Waiting on Wednesday: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Heart of Iron
Publication Date: February 27, 2018
Hardcover, 480 pages, Balzer + Bray
Genres: YA, Sci-Fi

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?

My Thoughts

I’ve been hearing some buzz about this one. Apparently, it’s Anastasia in space…? I’m not a huge fan of Anastasia, but I love space opera stories. I haven’t read a lot of them, but I’ve enjoyed the ones I have picked up. Let’s hope this one’s just as good if not better!

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
