I’ll be honest here – the cover of this one caught my eye, and I picked it up on a whim because I couldn’t get over how gorgeous the cover was. Beyond the beauty of this cover, the story itself also sounded intriguing – Debutante by day; Murderess by night. Except Aileana Cameron is hardly your typical debutante, even during the day. Whispered about behind her back, accused of murdering her own mother a year ealier, Aileana is just short of a social pariah. But with hordes of faeries threatening the city, and with a beautiful, immortal faery warrior by her side, Aileana hardly cares. Action-packed, emotionally taut and brilliantly written, The Falconer is definitely worth a read!
Edinburgh, 1844. Beautiful Aileana Cameron only looks the part of an aristocratic young lady. In fact, she’s spent the year since her mother died developing her ability to sense the presence of sithichean, a faery race bent on slaughtering humans. She has a secret mission: to destroy the faery who murdered her mother. But when she learns she’s a Falconer, the last in a line of female warriors and the sole hope of preventing a powerful faery population from massacring all of humanity, her quest for revenge gets a whole lot more complicated. Now in paperback, this electrifying thriller-the first volume of a trilogy from an exciting new voice in young adult fantasy-blends romance and action with steampunk technology and Scottish lore in a deliciously addictive read.
