Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Talon #1
Expected: October 28th, 2014
Description from GoodReads:
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.
Why I Want It:
I've been a huge fan of Julie Kagawa since her Iron Fey series since a little after The Iron Knight came out. When her Blood of Eden series came out, I was just so out of my mind excited that I rushed to the library to pick up a copy! I feel the exact same way about Talon! There has been so much hype about this book for months, I've just so many good things about it that I will most likely rush to Chapters as soon as the doors open on the 28th.
Why You Should Want It:
Dragons as well as Julie's writing. I love the way Julie's writing just pulls you in when you read one of her books. Her books make you feel as if they were written just for you. Dragons are another prime factor in wanting this book. Why are dragons important? BECAUSE THEY'RE DRAGONS.
That's my Waiting on Wednesday for this week, what are you waiting on? Will you be picking up Talon on October 28th? Let me know in the comments!
