Waiting on Wednesday: Talon and Let's Get Lost

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Here are my WoW picks this week (click title for the Goodreads page):

Release date: October 28th, 2014
 Publisher: Harlequin Teen
 Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
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.

This summer I finished reading the Iron Fey Series and I must say that Julie Kagawa is so one of my favourite authors! Now there's another book written by her and it's about dragons! *imagining the cool dragons of khaleesi...* Anyway Talon is one of my anticipated reads of the year and I bet Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian is one helluva sexy dragon slayer. Ha! *wink*

Release date: July 29th, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
Five strangers. Countless adventures.One epic way to get lost. 

Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most. 

There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love. 

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.

A road trip book! I wonder if this is going to be told on five perspectives and I'm certainly intrigued by the plot. Their lives are connected through one girl and when she leaves they started their epic journey. A book about friendship, loss, love. Definitely like it! I also like the cover. ^_^


  1. Great pick! Would love to read this one too because I haven't read any stories about dragons in a long time.

    Happy Wednesday!
