Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Ashes of Twilight by Kassy Tayler - To be released November 13th, 2012
Wren MacAvoy works as a coal miner for a domed city that was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century to protect the royal blood line of England when astronomers spotted a comet on a collision course with Earth. Humanity would be saved by the most groundbreaking technology of the time. But after nearly 200 years of life beneath the dome, society has become complacent and the coal is running out. Plus there are those who wonder, is there life outside the dome or is the world still consumed by fire? When one of Wren's friends escapes the confines of the dome, he is burned alive and put on display as a warning to those seeking to disrupt the dome’s way of life. But Alex’s final words are haunting. “The sky is blue.”
What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure, romance, conspiracy and the struggle to stay alive in a world where nothing is as it seems. Wren unwittingly becomes a catalyst for a revolution that destroys the dome and the only way to survive might be to embrace what the entire society has feared their entire existence.
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: Because it sounds freaking awesome. Also I'm not sure if Wren is a girl or a guy and I find that intriguing. Plus, hecka gorgeous cover!
The Falconer by Elizabeth May - To be released in 2013
Humans will be the hunted. Love will be tested. Vengeance will be had.
Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844
18-year-old Lady Aileana Kameron was destined to a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s society events — until a faery killed her mother.
Now, between the seeming endless parties and boring dances, Aileana has a new hobby: she secretly slaughters the fae who prey on humans in the city’s dark alleyways.
Determined to find the faery who murdered her mother, vengeance has become Aileana's life. . . so she never anticipated her growing attraction to the magnetic Kiaran MacKay, the faery who trained her to kill his own kind. Or that there was a world beyond hers, filled with secrets that affect her past and have the potential to destroy her present.
But when her own world is about revenge, and when she holds Kiaran’s fate in her hands, how far is Aileana prepared to go for retribution?
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: Edinburgh, fae and HOT sounding guy. What else more could a girl ask for?
This isn't the final cover but the final hasn't been announced yet so I figured this was better than nothing, right?
