Reading Recommendation: Heart of Iron, by Ekaterina Sedia

Just finished Heart of Iron last night.  Part steampunk, part penny dreadful, part alternate history, and all fun.  I decided I loved Ekaterina’s writing when I read The Alchemy of Stone, and so I picked this up shortly after it came out.  The two books are very different, but both are full of voice.

I particularly liked Ekaterina’s heroine, Sasha. I won’t say much more lest I drop spoilers.  I suspect it is available here at Worldcon.

By the way, the cover is very beautiful. The art is by Marcin Jacubowski.  The book is published by Prime Books.
