“Waiting On” Wednesday is a meme created at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we can’t wait to read.
Today I was super excited to see the cover reveal for The Mysterious Madam Morpho by Delilah S. Dawson.
Here’s the summary, taken from Goodreads:
An elusive woman arrives at Criminy’s doorstep with a steamer
trunk, begging for a position in the caravan to perform her unique new act. She opens her trunk to reveal a menagerie of brilliantly colored butterflies. The woman, who calls herself Madam Morpho, is on the run from a dark past in London, where she was forced to leave her equipment behind and abscond with only her tiny performers. Playing a hunch, Criminy hires Madam Morpho on the spot. Taking her down to meet Mr. Murdoch, the reclusive talented engineer who keeps the carnival’s clockworks running, Criminy instructs them to work together to design and build a groundbreaking new circus for the butterflies. Amid the magical ambiance of the circus and the hint of danger from Madam Morpho’s pursuers, she and Mr. Murdoch soon find that their scientific collaboration has produced chemistry of a more romantic kind.
I really enjoyed the first in Dawson’s Blud series and so can’t wait to see how she continues to build the world of Sang in this novella.
This title is released on October 2, 2012.
