Waiting on Wednesday: The Falconer

Hello!

It’s time for another Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine) and today I’m showcasing The Falconer by Elizabeth May.

Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844. Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined for a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery killed her mother. Now it’s the 1844 The Falconer by Elizabeth Maywinter season and Aileana slaughters faeries in secret, in between the endless round of parties, tea and balls. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, she sheds her aristocratic facade every night to go hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.

But the balance between high society and her private war is a delicate one, and as the fae infiltrate the ballroom and Aileana’s father returns home, she has decisions to make. How much is she willing to lose – and just how far will Aileana go for revenge?

I’m always in the mood for a fantasy read and The Falconer sounds like it could be a good one! I love the fact that this one takes place in 19th century Scotland because you know, I just don’t think there are enough books that take place in Scotland! Haha

Is anyone else excited for The Falconer?  If so, you’ll have to wait until May 6 to read this one…May is soon right?!

Book Trailer of the Week: The Iron Fey series

Book Trailer of the WeekIt’s Friday!

And you know what that means! Book Trailer of the Week time! Every week I bring you a book trailer that I believe deserves a little attention.

Iron Fey series by Julie KagawaToday I’ll be showing off the book trailer for the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.   I honestly can’t escape good the buzz for these books! They’re raved about on tons of book blogs, so I know I’m going to have to make these a priority!

Half human. Half faery. Fully endangered. Meghan Chase is about to come into her legacy.  The Faery realms have always weathered the clash of Summer and Winter fey, the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. Now a new breed of faery has emerged to challenge both—to their peril. Forged by Man’s insatiable pursuit of technological superiority, the terrifying Iron fey are massing…and the fate of all faeries hangs in the balance. The greatest weapon in this epic magical war? A half-human teenage girl.

Doesn’t it sound like a fun supernatural fantasy series?  Like I’ve said, I keep hearing great things about these books and the trailer makes me want to read them that much more!
