Waiting on Wednesday *52*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

The Falconer by Elizabeth May
The Falconer #1
Expected Publication Date: May 6th 2014

Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived.

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 winter 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?
Ok so, let me break down the things that have me excited about this one: it's a sci-fi read that's also considered to be historical fiction.  It's set in Scotland.  It also has elements of Steampunk, Fantasy and Paranormal woven in there for good measure.  Oh, and did I mention is has to do with the Fae?!  And the MC is killing said Fae with cool weapons and stuff!  There's no way I'm passing this one up.  So, where's the line forming to wait to get my hands on a copy ?

Don't forget to link me up to your WoW!

  7. What a swoon-worthy-looking book! I agree with all of your reasons for wanting to read it, Scotland always makes me dream for some reason. And I love paranormal and historical elements as well. Thanks for letting me know about it, I hadn't heard of it before now.

    Have a great day Micheline :)
