Waiting On Wednesday (27)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


My WOW pick for this week is:

By: Julie Kagawa
Publication Date: October 28th, 2014

"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." ~See it on Goodreads!


It's no secret that Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors! I love her Iron Fey series as well as her Immortal Rules series, and if you haven't read either of those I highly recommend that you do. Seriously. Go buy them. Right now. You don't know what your missing!

And this series sparked my interest immediately when I read the synopsis, I love dragons and this sounds like a great and creative take on them. The idea that dragons are hiding in plain sight in human form just really intrigues me and I'm excited to see how the story unfolds with Ember (love that name by the way!) and her brother Dante. 

What's your WOW pick for this week?
