Waiting On Wednesday: The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine highlighting the upcoming releases we’re most looking forward to.

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 into her own powers as the last of the Falconers . . .

That cover is so Buffy. BUFFY ALL THE WAY. 

Cover is badass and therefore I must have it. It says a hell of a lot that I’m featuring this book as my Waiting On Wednesday when I haven’t even finished with the first book yet. It is so good. It’s one of those books that I don’t want to stop reading but I have to because, you know, LIFE.


Elizabeth May was born in California, where she lived during her formative years before moving to Scotland. She is currently working on her PhD at the University of St Andrews. When she isn’t writing or doing academics, she can be found hiking through the Scottish heather with a camera in hand.
She currently resides in Edinburgh, Scotland, with her husband. THE FALCONER is her début novel. For more information, follow her on Twitter @_ElizabethMay or visit her website http://www.elizabethmaywrites.com

    Oh yes, I’m waiting for this too. If anything, just to find out what happened after that infernal cliffhanger! I’ll probably spend a little more to get this UK cover too, so it’ll match my copy of The Falconer…plus it’s so pretty.
