9780575130425: The Falconer

"A riveting world, a fierce heroine, and electrifying action--I burned through this sparkling debut!" —Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author

Edinburgh, 1844. Beautiful Aileana Kameron only looks the part of an aristocratic young lady. In fact, she's spent the year since her mother died developing her ability to sense the presence of sìthichean, a faery race bent on slaughtering humans. She has a secret mission: to destroy the faery who murdered her mother. But when she learns she's a Falconer, the last in a line of female warriors and the sole hope of preventing a powerful faery population from massacring all of humanity, her quest for revenge gets a whole lot more complicated. Now in paperback, this electrifying thriller—the first volume of a trilogy from an exciting new voice in young adult fantasy—blends romance and action with steampunk technology and Scottish lore in a deliciously addictive read.

Dying for more? Don't worry, you don't have to wait to continue reading! Book two in The Falconer Trilogy, The Vanishing Throne is available now. Book three, The Fallen Kingdom is available for preorder.

Review:

"The Falconer is an action-packed, violently gratifying, and darkly addictive novel--the first in a trilogy. It is the perfect blend of historical fiction, fantasy, and steampunk, with enough romance and humor to have readers devouring each page as Aileana learns more about the fae, Kiaran, and herself." --VOYA

*A Summer 2014 Kids' Indie Next Pick *Amazon Book of the Month - May 2014 *Scholastic Reading Club pick - 2014

"Aileana is an amazing, brave hero... the writing crackles with wit."--Booklist

"[A] fascinating, unique world. May's writing is exquisite and demands a close reading to take everything in. readers will be anxious for the next installment."-School Library Journal

"Witty dialogue, nonstop action, and campy humor. More, please."-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This book was AWESOME. It's full of well-worn tropes and clichés.but somehow transcends them all to become some new animal that is the best of all its borrowed parts." -- Billie Bloebaum, Powell's

"Simply put, my favorite YA paranormal this year. A must read!"--New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

"It's very rare to find a YA fantasy that blends the otherworldly with a very real and raw heroine. I ate up this story and mourned when it was over. The Falconer is a standout read."--Read. Breathe. Relax.

"I couldn't get enough of this steampunk world and all it's awesome gadgets."--Owl Always Be Reading

"Forget Bella, banish Katniss and Expelliarmus Hermione-there is a new breed of ass-kicker intown. . . . Elizabeth May's debut is a wicked cocktailof Jane Austen and the Grimms' fairy tales."--Claire Nicholls, SciFiNow

"Ball gowns, blood, and an evil fairy determined to bring about the end of the world-this comedy of manners has it all."--School Library Journal Curriculum Connections

"A character and a world that breathes life into fantasy."--Library Media Connection

"A riveting world, a fierce heroine, and electrifying action--I burned through this sparkling debut!" --Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series
