Since Ashley Poston mentioned that her next book was “Anastasia in space,” we’ve been cleaning out room on our bookcases and eagerly awaiting the release. Heart of Iron hits shelves on February 13, but to tide us over until we can tear through it, we have something special for you today – a cover reveal!
Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09 — one of the last remaining illegal Metals — has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.
Ana’s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep them.
When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after them — and the coordinates — and not everyone wants them captured alive.
“SAGLJA ;GO JGO;G K JGOAGH;KAJ GKHA; JDFGKA SO MANY FEELS ALL THE FEELS LOOK AT THESE FEELS JUST VOMMING EVERYWHERE OAJGL;KA AD GJAJDGALJGJDLKGJL,” wrote Poston when she sent us the cover. “Ahem. So, Heart of Iron is one of those books that’s been with me for a long time – I’ve grown as a writer because of Heart of Iron, and because of that it’s been through so many incarnations that I could never really imagine what the cover would look like… and I’m so, so happy with what the design team dreamed up! It’s fantastic. I’m still grinning!”
The cover designer is Sarah Kaufman and the cover artist is John Dismukes. Heart of Iron releases from Balzer + Bray on February 13, 2018.
