Full joint review with E_bookpusher is posted here:http://thebookpushers.com/2012/10/01/joint-review-ironskin-by-tina-connolly/Quick thoughts and mini review:Oh I am a huge sucker for retellings especially if they are ones based on Jane Eyre. Ironskin, is a lush and beautifully imagined world where fey are incorporeal and feed on humans and their emotions which leads to a great war. However I really did feel disappointed that the romance element of the story was the weakest aspect of the book. Edward Rochart is no Mr Rochester and there was no real buildup of tension or any time spent on the romance. Nonetheless the overall cast of characters shared a fantastic chemistry and were all fleshed out and Jane's character and struggles as being an Ironskin was thoughtful and memorable. I will definitely be looking forward to the sequel but don't expect anything on the romance side of the book.
