Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Moving from the gothic to the political, this feminist urban fantasy (sequel to 2012's Jane Eyre pastiche Ironskin) shifts the war with the Fey from countryside to cityscape. When anti-Fey activist Jane goes missing, her sister, Helen Huntingdon, takes over Jane's role as leader of the anti-Fey forces, which include both humans and dwarvven. Married to the wealthy, useless Alistair, Helen gets involved in organizing the leading ladies of society, fashion, and the arts. With tolerance and tenacity, Helen struggles to overcome prejudice against both dwarvven (as the belligerent pro-human Copperheads chant, One People, One Race) and women while undermining the Fey King's plot against humans and trying to help her sister. Connolly is more inventive than in her previous book, but straying from a good model allows the tension to deflate. More successful than the citywide threat are the domestic dilemmas and a romantic triangle with Helen at its apex. Agent: Ginger Clark, Curtis Brown. (Oct.)

Review

“This is an astonishing book: an evocative re-imagination of Jane Eyre that concerns itself with beauty, love, and social upheaval. This lyrical and utterly marvelous debut is one of the standout books of the year.” ―RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick! on Ironskin

“Connolly has created a complex and well-drawn world here, and the story is indeed an original and imaginative take on the gothic-fiction tradition. An intriguing and ambitious fantasy tale.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Ironskin

“All the romance, mystery, and horror that a good gothic story needs.” ―Portland Monthly on Ironskin

“Jane is ferocious and splendid; the hero is tormented and tragic. Tina Connolly has crafted a steampunk Beauty and the Beast tale, beautifully and cleverly reversed. Don't miss this debut.” ―Ann Aguirre, national bestselling author of Enclave on Ironskin

“A lyrical, beautifully crafted debut. A haunting exploration of the true price one must pay for magic, beauty, and love, Ironskin will stay with me for a long time to come.” ―M.K. Hobson, author of The Native Star on Ironskin

“Clever and romantic at the same time--no mean feat. A magical and entertaining waltz across the fairy forests and dark moors just a sideways step or two from Haworth Parsonage.” ―Ian R. MacLeod, author of Wake Up and Dream on Ironskin

“A gothic, eerie, and pitch-perfect retelling of Jane Eyre, in which the moors are haunted by menacing fae and the hero's secrets are steeped in magic. Ironskin kept me up past my bedtime and stayed with me long after the last page was turned.” ―Leah Cypess, author of Mistwood on Ironskin

“Connolly provides plenty of discussion of fashion, courtship, and marriage for fans of Victorian gothics.” ―Publishers Weekly on Ironskin
