Waiting on Wednesday: Legacy of the Clockwork Key

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

clockworkkeyTitle: Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publish Date: March 5, 2013
Genre: Steampunk

Goodreads Summary: A teen girl unravels the mysteries of a secret society and their most dangerous invention in this adventure-swept romance set in Victorian London.

When a fire consumes Meg’s home, killing her parents and destroying both her fortune and her future, all she has left is the tarnished pocket watch she rescued from the ashes. But this is no ordinary timepiece. The clock turns out to be a mechanical key—a key that only Meg can use—that unlocks a series of deadly secrets and intricate clues that Meg is compelled to follow.

Meg has uncovered evidence of an elite secret society and a dangerous invention that some will stop at nothing to protect—and that Meg alone can destroy. Together with the handsome stable hand she barely knows but hopes she can trust, Meg is swept into a hidden world of deception, betrayal, and revenge. The clockwork key has unlocked her destiny in this captivating start to a trilogy.

Why am I waiting on Legacy of the Clockwork Key? I know I’m late getting on the steampunk train but since I recently listened to Clockwork Angel on audiobook, I am now just a teeny bit obsessed with the genre. I love the cover of Legacy of the Clockwork Key and the summary sounds so good! What books are you waiting on?

I seriously love steampunk! This book sounds really interesting too. If you want another good book in that genre, check out The Girl in the Steel Corset (if you haven't already). It's awesome!
