Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, dedicated to spotlighting upcoming releases.
This week’s selection is Elizabeth May’s upcoming The Vanishing Throne, sequel to The Falconer.
My name is Lady Aileana Kameron.
First the fae murdered my mother. Then they destroyed my world.
Now I’m fighting for more than revenge.
Aileana took a stand against the Wild Hunt, and she lost everything: her home, her family and her friends. Held captive by her enemy, and tormenting herself over her failure, escape seems like only the faintest possibility. But when she gets her chance, she seizes it . . . to rejoin a world devastated by war.
The future is bleak. Hunted by the fae, running for her life, Aileana has only a few options left. Trying to become part of a society scarred by – and hiding from – the Wild Hunt; trusting that a fragile alliance with the fae will save her; or walking the most dangerous path at all: coming in to her own powers as the last of the Falconers . . .
I adored The Falconer: its steampunk version of Edinburgh, its use of faerie lore, its BAMF protagonist. Throw in a cliffhanger ending and I’m on tenterhooks waiting to find out what happens next!
