Waiting on Wednesday #61

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on.....
Talon by Julie Kagawa
Releases on: 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.
I think the entire book community is aware that Julie Kagawa knows how the write, and this up-coming release of hers promises to be sensational. I mean, have you read that description?!?! Are you not beyond excited for October? Seriously. If this book was released now, I'm be reading it rather than writing this post. I. Want. This. Book! Stat. Pronto. ASAP!

What you do you think? Are you a Julie Kagawa fan and will you be reading Talon?
Plus, what are you waiting on this week?



  1. This is one I'm wanting really bad at BEA!!! I have two chances to get it I think.

  2. I've only read the iron king by her and disliked it but i'm starting the immortal rules very soon and heard amazing things about that trilogy. Also DRAGONS? DRAGONS? I AM IN!
