I know I've posted today already but I had to bring you this cover reveal. It's for one of my most anticipated reads of 2013 and one I've been waiting for the last couple of years and finally we have a gorgeous cover. It is indeed for The Falconer By Elizabeth May! I'm so giddy just typing this, it's so good and I've been waiting for it for so long! Congratulations Elizabeth on the incredibly kick ass cover! *Squee* It's even animated! Here it is:
Series: The Falconer #1
Release Date: 19th September 2013
Synopsis: Lady Aileana Kameron can sing, paint prettily, and murder the fae as easily as dancing a waltz. But how far is she prepared to go for vengeance . . . ?
Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844
18 year old Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined to a life carefully planned around Edinburgh's social events - right up until a faery kills her mother.
Now it's the 1844 winter season. Between a seeming endless number of parties, Aileana slaughters faeries in secret. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, every night she sheds her aristocratic facade and goes hunting. She's determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city's many dark alleyways.
But she never even considered that she might become attracted to one. To the magnetic Kiaran MacKay, the faery who trained her to kill his own kind. Nor is she at all prepared for the revelation he's going to bring. Because Midwinter is approaching, and with it an eclipse that has the ability to unlock a Fae prison and begin the Wild Hunt.
A battle looms, and Aileana is going to have to decide how much she's willing to lose - and just how far she'll go to avenge her mother's murder.
Eek! How kick ass does the cover look? Also I love the cover models dress! Oh and that must be one of Aileana's inventions in her hand! I am just so damn happy with this cover! I wish you could see just how excited I am for this novel! The cover makes me want to get my hands on a copy even more! I love the fire and the mystic blue cloud hanging around her, it really gives a very mysterious vibe while the girl looks ready to take on anyone who goes near her! Guys I just Love this so much!
