3 Star #Review of Copperhead (Ironskin #2) by Tina Connolly

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.

This one had a lot more story/action than book one Ironskin.  Which really made me happy.  I was over joyed to get to know more about Helen, Jane's sister but was sadden when well I don't like her very much.  I really missed Jane in this one!  

The story gets bogged down in areas of all the social issues being talked about which really made the story get boring and at other times very preachy. The end is all tied up in this one and yes I will again be reading the next book which is about Dorie.  I think the only reason I'm even doing that is because well I really want to know how she grew up.  (if that is her on the cover)

Did I read the first one? Hmmm...maybe I am getting my series mixed up.
Anyways.
Sounds okay...I may skip this tho. I'm not a huge steampunk fan to begin with.
