Présentation de l'éditeur

We all wear battle scars.
Some run deeper than others.
Jane's are impossible to hide.

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask. It's the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain – The Ironskin.

When a post is advertised for a governess to assist with a fey-cursed child, Jane grabs the opportunity and leaves for a new life at Silver Birch Hall.

Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is a challenge in itself. But Jane’s also battling with burgeoning feelings for the little girl's father – the enigmatic artist Edward Rochart. Deep down Jane knows Rochart cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things are true? As Jane unlocks the secrets of a new life – she discovers just how far she’s prepared to go to become whole again.

"Ironskin" est très ouvertement inspiré des "Hauts de Hurlevent". Et contrairement aux "Hauts de Hurlevent" qui ne m'ont jamais fait vibrer, le basculement de l'histoire dans un univers steampunk, introduisant plus d'imaginaire et de mystères, m'a permis de lire avec avidité ce roman.

Dans une sorte d'Angleterre d'après-guerre, dévastée après un conflit contre les fairies, M. Rochart cherche sans relâche la gouvernante idéale pouvant prendre soin de sa petite fille très spéciale. Ce veuf vit seul avec sa fille et trois serviteurs (une cuisinière, une bonne et un majordome au sexe indéterminé et à la taille très réduite) dans une maison anciennement créée par les fairies, et disposant encore de quelques technologies "fairies" (la lumière et quelques appareils mécaniques). Il auditionne Jane, une jeune fille pauvre qui a eu la moitié du visage détruit par une bombe fairy, et contrainte de garder un masque de fer sur cette partie pour éviter que le sort fairy ne se répande (toute personne à proximité d'une personne touchée par un sort fairy se trouve influencée à son tour par ce sort). Chez certains il peut s'agir de Gloutonnerie, chez elle il s'agit de Rage. Jane, considérée comme les autres victimes des fairies comme des "intouchables", des pestiférés, va s'épanouir dans ce rôle de gouvernante. Toute la première partie du roman est très fidèle au roman originel et distille une ambiance gothique que j'ai beaucoup appréciée.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 My Life is a Notebook Reviews: Ironskin 2 octobre 2012
Par Gretchen @ My Life is a Notebook - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Thank you to NetGalley and Tor/Forge for the ability to read this eARC!

There are books that I would die to have enjoyed completely, and this is one of them. Sadly, it fell short of my expectations.

In case you didn't already realize, this book is a fey/steampunk retelling of Jane Eyre-you know, that book by Charlotte Bronte we all had to read in school. Jane Eyre was a school book that I actually didn't mind, surprisingly, and I had high hopes for the awesomeness that could come out of adding fantasy elements.

For much of the book, however, it seems like Connelly stays too close to its original text. The names are hardly changed (not a big deal, but still) and the biggest part for me is that Ironskin reads just as slow as Jane Eyre did for a majority of the text. Retelling or no, this is still a YA book and people still want a faster pace than classic books-that's why I read YA, at least.

My biggest problem was characterization. I never connected with Jane as a character-she was far too stiff all the time. Worse, she all of a sudden simply decided she was in love with Mr. Rochart without ANY kind of connection being made between them at all. This Mr. Rochart is more absent and strange than the one in Jane Eyre, and that's saying something. Several other decisions and plot points were also simply made without any preamble or reasoning, and that bothered me to no end. Much of the story seemed to happen without much reason other than that it had to happen for the sake of the story.

I did, however, greatly enjoy the idea behind the story. This retelling was far more interesting than the original. However, the plot holes that were left in several places continued to irk me throughout the book. I can't ask many of the questions I wish without giving away the plot, but I found myself at least mildly confused throughout the entire novel.

So why the 3 1/2 star rating, then? Because of the idea. This refreshing, interesting idea that-yes-wasn't fleshed out to all its credit. Also, towards the end of the novel, the pace picked up greatly and was actually exciting. If Connolly had put that kind of pacing into the first three-fourths or so of the novel, I would have been much more invested. Also, moving towards the end, the story began to depart more and more from it's very serious Jane Eyre parallels that were present in the beginning. I kept waiting for key plot points of Jane Eyre to crop up, some with dread (St. John, anyone?), but fewer of them actually came up, and when they did they were decidedly different from the original text. The end of Ironskin did not entirely make up for the beginning, but it did make the rating of this book much higher than I thought it would be.

All in all, though I enjoyed Ironskin, I wanted more from it than I was given. Perhaps this book requires more love for the classics than I have, or more patience, but I consistently felt like I was being let down by all the potential it most certainly had. The end of the book was a great deal more exciting than the beginning, but in truth I was lucky to make it that far. I have put the second Ironskin novel, currently untitled and due out in 2013, on my TBR list just because I'm curious to see where Connolly will take this story now that she's exhausted Jane Eyre. Perhaps being freed from that model will open up more of the story's potential.

2.5 Stars

I had such high hopes for this book, the cover the blurb everything screamed this has to be a 5 star book but no not the case. I was a little disappointed the book had so much potential especially with that blurb but in the end it didn't live up to it entirely. Also if you have read Jane Eyre this is a retelling... a very loose retelling.

The book starts off letting us know that the Fey war has been over for the past five years. We are introduced to Jane who has to wear an iron mask since she was struck with the shrapnel's of a fey bomb and in turn she is cursed with rage and the iron mask keeps her curse in check. The people who wear ironskin are looked down upon and Jane has a hard time keeping a job until she gets the chance to work in the home of Edward Rochart who has a fey cursed child.

I was expecting a fast paced thrilling read, what I wasn't expecting was to be bored for the first half of the book. The majority of the book was Jane trying to teach the child (Dorie) how to stop using her powers and use her hands to do things. I was tempted to mark this as dnf but I was stubborn, I was determined to see this one to the end and I'm actually glad I did, it got a lot better in the second half. It was more fast paced and we finally had other interesting characters to read about. I was expecting romance but there wasn't much and what did develop did not seem believable. Jane and Edward barely saw each other, didn't have much interaction but somehow fell in love.

I did like the world building it was done very well, I was able to really picture it all with vivid detail. I really liked the fantasy aspect of the world. I also actually really liked Jane. She is half the reason I continued reading when I normally would have put this one aside, she wasn't a damsel in distress when things got tough and chaotic she took action.

Overall this book was not for me, There were a few things I liked but not enough to where I want to pick up the second book when it comes out.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Jane Eyre + Fey 6 octobre 2012
Par SarahS. - Publié sur Amazon.com

Cursed by the fey war, Jane wears an iron mask to contain the curse and to hide her scar.
She takes up a job for Edward Rochart. Being governess to Mr. Rochart's daughter is not what she thought it would be.

This is a retelling of Jane Eyre, which I have not read, so I can't compare how alike the two are, but I do know what the book is about.

The cover! Yeah it's amazing, but everyone knows how I like my covers! I liked the Gothic atmosphere of it, and the beginning was promising, but it sort of slowed down and went downhill form there. The last half of the book stood at a standstill for me. I was confused and found myself rereading pages back. There was nothing wrong with the heroine Jane. And I liked Dorie somewhat, I liked the interactions between Jane and Dorie. It was the romance didn't do it for me, it was weird and creepy.

I don't know if I'm going to be picking up the next book.
You might enjoy it if you like classics.

Thank you to Tor Books and NetGally for this ARC.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 annoying kid, little to no romance, potential not realized 4 mars 2013
Par D. Politis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I found the little girl character annoying. The first 100 pages or so are the fey cursed governess trying to get the fey cursed 5 year old to behave. She moves things around with her telekinesis and governess is trying to teach her how to use her hands. This does not go over well.

This book is billed as a romance. There is no romance. One day, we are told the hero is in love with the governess and vice versa. Ummm what? When did this happen?

Then halfway through the book the plot changes from the focus on the 5 year old girl to the overall war with the fey. Is it over? Are the fey still around?

This book had potential and I kept turning pages to see what would happen next. But the potential was never realized. When the book ended I thought this is it? I felt the ending was very abrupt.

The other reviews say that this is a reverse Beauty and the Beast romance. I didn't notice any romance in this book. There was little conversation between hero and heroine and most of their interaction revolves around the little girl. I didn't like this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great fantastical retelling of Jane Eyre except with dark fairies and magic. 15 décembre 2012
Par Layers of Thought - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The first in a dark steampunk-ish themed series that is a fantastical re-telling of the classic Jane Eyre. Only it includes fey, dwarves, magic and a creative twist.

About: Set on the moors of an alternative yet familiar England-like world, Jane Elliot is a victim of a Great War against an illusive and ethereal fey. She is horrifically scarred on one side of her face. Covering it with an iron mask is the only way to prevent it’s dark magic from oozing emotions to everyone around her. Sadly, it’s an affliction common to many who have been injured in the war against the fey.

Inevitably life moves forward after the war, and Jane, in an attempt to avoid being a burden on her soon to be married sister, applies for a job as a governess – to the young daughter of the mysterious Edward Rochart, both who have been afflicted by dealings with the fey.

With the large household located near the forest (a known dwelling of the fey), it becomes apparent that there are comings, goings, and complications within the woods; and that perhaps the members of the Rochart household may have dealings within them. And as Jane falls deeply for the much older Mr. Rochart, she soon suspects that he may hold a key to healing her wound. She also discovers that he has more secrets than she wishes to believe, very much like the original Jane Eyre.

Thoughts: First off, I loved, loved, loved Jane Eyre. It was a rare five star for me. Having read it just several months prior to finishing this book made this re-telling even more fun for me. It felt like I was almost re-reading the original, only with a sparser language and with an added fantastical flair. Tina Connolly has a special way of writing which is very surprising and “retro” in flavor. It’s like a modern version of an old fashioned style which is suitable for a Victorian-like time period and similar to the original Jane Eyre. It was very refreshing. I also loved the setting – an alternative England with its lovely green moors that I too have a special connection to. Lastly, Jane Elliot is a strong female character, like the character Jane Eyre, which has a big appeal for me.

The only negative thing that I thought abound the book is that as I was nearing the end, I felt like it was just not going to be long enough. I was actually slightly nervous about it and kept thinking how the author was going to successfully manage to conclude the story without a “drop off the side of a cliff” ending. Or worse yet and impossible “dangler” which leaves the reader stranded. Happily it does have a satisfying conclusion which makes the book a decent stand alone read. But even better, it doesn’t have to be the end since there is a sequel in the works.

Labeled as young adult by a number of reviewers, I do think it will work better for adults. There are dark themes, some violence, and others which are adult in nature (some that teens may not connect well with). However, with its light romance (no sex) and clean language it will work for teens. Recommended especially for readers who enjoy dark fantasy, evil fey and magic set in a familiar world. I devoured this book and give it a 4-star rating. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel.
