Waiting on Wednesday *89*

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 my pick this week:

Talon by Julie Kagawa
Talon #1
Expected Publication: October 28th 2014 by Harlequin Teen

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.
DRAGONS.  And not just regular dragons, people with the ability to transform into dragons!!  I've only read one story like that before, the Draconi Series by Stephanie Constante and I loved it!  That was was set in a more traditional setting so I love the idea of dragons being woven into modern day society.  Talon had me excited about it even before I was lucky enough to snag a copy at BEA this year.  I cannot wait to get started on this one. DRAGONS!! :D

Are you as excited for Talon as I am?
Let me know when you link me up below!


  1. I was so sure this was somehow part of those vampire series. I didn't enjoy those too much. I'll give fey ones a try but I'm wary. This one I'll look out for and MAYBE read someday.
    Hope you get it soon!

  2. This sounds so good. I so want to read this book. I loved Julie Kagawa's vampire series so I'm pretty sure that I'm going to love that one too.

  6. I love this author and the story with dragons cant be boring. I am so excited to read it. Great pick!

  7. Eep, I love this one! I met Julie at ALA very briefly but I couldn't stay until the promo-event where I could have gotten an ARC :/ I'll definitely pick it up when it comes out though! Undercover dragons!!
    Also, this may sound superficial but I love all the characters' names - makes me want to get to know them :)

    P.S.: I'm so glad we can comment back and forth again, and sorry for the abuse of exclamation marks :P

    Awesome pick, hun, and thanks for stopping by!

  8. Totally just added this one to my Goodreads! I've always wanted to read Kagawa, and yes, I could have just tried out her vampire or fey series but...dragons? I'll wait for this one :)
