Giveaway and Review Copperhead (Ironskin #2) by Tina Connolly

3 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

The sequel to Tina Connolly's stunning historical fantasy debut.

Helen Huntingdon is beautiful—so beautiful she has to wear an iron mask. Six months ago her sister Jane uncovered a fey plot to take over the city. Too late for Helen, who opted for fey beauty in her face—and now has to cover her face with iron so she won’t be taken over, her personality erased by the bodiless fey.

Not that Helen would mind that some days. Stuck in a marriage with the wealthy and controlling Alistair, she lives at the edges of her life, secretly helping Jane remove the dangerous fey beauty from the wealthy society women who paid for it. But when the chancy procedure turns deadly, Jane goes missing—and is implicated in the murder.

Meanwhile, Alistair’s influential clique Copperhead—whose emblem is the poisonous copperhead hydra—is out to restore humans to their “rightful” place, even to the point of destroying the dwarvven who have always been allies.

Helen is determined to find her missing sister, as well as continue the good fight against the fey. But when that pits her against her own husband—and when she meets an enigmatic young revolutionary—she’s pushed to discover how far she’ll bend society’s rules to do what’s right. It may be more than her beauty at stake. It may be her honor...and her heart.

Fallon's Review:

Copperhead book 2 in the Ironskin series. This book was intruiging and I loved Ironskin. I wanted to continue reading Jane's story. I have to say though Helen was my least favorite character in Ironskin. Helen has always been beautiful and a little superficial. I did like the strong feminist theme of this book. Women working together through men who try to control or dominate them.

Copperhead starts off with Helen walking through the city with her husband Alistair and the Fey are all over the city. In every spot that is not covered in iron. Jane needs Helen's help to get the 100 on board for the procedure. 

I think the thing I liked about Jane's character was how down to earth and understated she was. I also loved watching her evolve. I did not feel I got this depth from Helen which made the story drag a littl more. Tina Connolly's writing is so incredible and the way she mixes fantasy, steampunk and a little bit of Historical feel blends in such a unique way. I am giving this book 3 out of 5 stars just because I do not love Helen but I am so excited to continue the story with Dorie in Silverblind.
