Waiting on Wednesday #15: The Falconer by Elizabeth May

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that I am anxiously awaiting is:

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)
 
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?
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why I can't wait: Heiress, debutant, murderer and set in the past. Four things that I like combined in one book!
 
Publication date: September 26th 2013

    1. That's a coincidence :) I don't know much about Edingburh so maybe I'll learn something about your city through reading this book.
