Waiting on Wednesday: Talon

This weeks "waiting on Wednesday" is:

By Julie Kagawa
Expected Publishing Date: October 28th, 2014

Synopsis from GoodReads:

Talon (Talon, #1)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.


  1. I seriously have not read anything by Julie Kagawa before. I even purchased the Iron Fey series so I could read them, but they are still sitting on my shelf. I am a bad reader. I hope you enjoy reading this one. Thanks for stopping by My WoW.

  2. I love Julie Kagawa so much! I think this one is going to be amazing!

    Thanks for saying hello over at my WOW! Have a lovely week!

    1. Of course! I have not read any books by her yet, so I am hoping this will be a good one.

  3. I've seen this around a lot of times. I've never read anything by Julie Kagawa but I've been thinking about this.. it's not exactly my type of read but I think that there's always no harm in trying.I hope you enjoy reading this! :)
