"Waiting On" Wednesday 7

Steel by Carrie Vaughn
Release date: 3/15/11

Summary: When Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever?

Drawing on piratical lore and historical fact, Carrie Vaughn creates a vivid world of swaying masts and swelling seas, where blood magic overrules the laws of nature, romance is in the air, and death can come at the single slip of a sword.

Pirates and magic! Two great tastes that taste great together... I hope. Although I generally come down on the ninja side of the great Pirate/Ninja debate, I won't deny that salty swashbucklers have their appeal. This sounds fabulous and I would love to read it!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
