Waiting on Wednesday (29) - Steel

Steel
Carrie Vaughn
Publisher: HarperTeen
To be released: March 15, 2011

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

This book sounds awesome. I mean time traveling and pirates, how can this not be awesome? Cannot wait to read it later this year.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event highlighting exciting upcoming releases. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
