Waiting on Wednesday: The Iron Wyrm Affair

Emma Bannon, a sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and his own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn’t much help that they dislike each other, or that Emma's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. In an alternate London where illogical magic has turned the Industrial Revolution on its head, Emma and Clare now face hostility, treason, cannon fire, black sorcery, and the problem of reliably finding hansom cabs. The game is afoot…

I know this book shouldn't technically be considered a "Waiting on Wednesday" selection since I received an ARC copy of it two weeks ago....but because The Iron Wyrm Affair doesn't come out until August 2012 it still counts right? Besides, I just can't help but gush about this book  because I am so damn excited to read it!! It seems like a perfect combination of sorcery, mystery, steampunk, and perhaps a bit of romance?! It's almost like a steampunk version of Sherlock Holmes! And bear with me for a moment while I let the cover snob part of my personality rear its ugly head...but I think that the cover is absolutely gorgeous! I'm trying to hold off reading it until closer to the publication date, but we'll see if that actually ends up happening. What do you guys think? Sound like something you would want to read? Do you like steampunk stories?
