Waiting on Wednesday: Steel by Carrie Vaughn

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming March 15, 2011!

Steel by Carrie Vaughn

When Jill, a competitive high school fencer, goes with her family on vacation to the Bahamas, she is magically transported to an early eighteenth century pirate ship in the middle of the ocean.

My thoughts: Short and sweet description, but this book already sounds awesome! The heroine's a fencer, so she'll know how to handle a sword on board the ship. Time travel? Check. Pirates? Check. One apparently kickbutt heroine? Double check. What more could you ask for? This sounds like quite the high-flying adventure! Plus, I've heard great things about Carrie Vaughn and really need to make time to read the Kitty Norville series. This is a HarperCollins title and they usually put out fantastic reads, so Steel has a lot working in it's favor. Fingers crossed that it makes an appearance on NetGalley!

What upcoming release are you eagerly anticipating this week?

This one's already on my wishlist! Love that cover and since she's a fencer it will make sense when she starts the piratey swordfighting :D
