Ironskin by Tina ConnollyRead about another entry on the list.
Described as “Steampunk Jane Eyre,” Ironskin tells the story of Jane Eliot, a young woman wounded in the Great Battle with the Fey. We never see the fey in Ironskin, which makes them all the more disturbing. Instead, we see the damage they left behind. Jane Eliot has to wear an iron mask to control the rage bubbling under the surface of her face where she was struck by shrapnel.
The result is a dark and brooding feeling of danger as we see the direct effects of the Great War on the general populace and the resulting fear and protections required to keep safe from the deadly Fey. The novel leaves you wanting more – which is good, as the series continues with Copperhead and Silverblind.
