Today, we’re celebrating the release of Iron Cast by Destiny Soria, the perfect next read for fans of Libba Bray’s The Diviners.
It’s Boston, 1919, and the Cast Iron club is packed. On stage, hemopaths—whose “afflicted” blood gives them the ability to create illusions through art—Corinne and Ada have been best friends ever since infamous gangster Johnny Dervish recruited them into his circle. By night they perform for Johnny’s crowds, and by day they con Boston’s elite. When a job goes wrong and Ada is imprisoned, she realizes how precarious their position is. After she escapes, two of the Cast Iron’s hires are shot, and Johnny disappears. With the law closing in, Corinne and Ada are forced to hunt for answers, even as betrayal faces them at every turn.
Destiny created an incredible Iron Cast playlist for us to blast as we devour our new hardcover copies! Read what she has to say about the playlist and listen below.
“Iron Cast is set on the brink of the Roaring Twenties, which were a time of excess and glamor. Dresses were getting shorter, music was getting hotter, and speakeasies were swinging late into the night. This playlist is an homage to that infamous era. There’s a mix of classic 1920’s tunes, jazzy covers of current favorites, and some songs I think capture the spirit of the age. I hope you enjoy!”
