What's under that dress exactly?

As in the original novel, our story follows two relationships: the tragic adulterous romance of Anna Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the much more hopeful marriage of Nikolai Levin and Kitty Shcherbatskaya. These four, yearning for true love, live in a steampunk-inspired 19th century of mechanical butlers, extraterrestrial-worshiping cults, and airborne debutante balls. Their passions alone would be enough to consume them—but when a secret cabal of radical scientific revolutionaries launches an attack on Russian high society’s high-tech lifestyle, our heroes must fight back with all their courage, all their gadgets, and all the power of a sleek new cyborg model like nothing the world has ever seen.

Filled with the same blend of romance, drama, and fantasy that made the first two Quirk Classics New York Times best sellers, Android Karenina brings this celebrated series into the exciting world of science fiction.

This fabulousness was sent to me on the 19th and I only just opened it! How evocative is this cover, and what exactly does this imply as to the proclivities of our Count Vronsky? I am almost literally trembling with anticipation for Android Karenina! A romance so tragic that it sends my female tears-o-meter needle jumping off it's scale, and the newly added steampunk infusion is making me spit shine my badge of Nerd-dome to a eyeball singeing degree. Want to win this novel, I will be starting the contest this May so keep your eyes on this blog for it.
