Waiting On Wednesday – 63

Hello gentle reader,

today I’m waiting on THE GIRL AT MIDNIGHT by Melissa Grey (expected publication: 28th April 2015 by Delacorte Press/Random House/Atom/Little Brown). It’s a YA Fantasy which sounds completely unique and interesting. I know Melissa from Twitter and I’ve been dying to read her book ever since she sold it. The title alone is amazing. And have you seen those gorgeous covers?!

From Goodreads:

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she’s fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it’s time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it’s how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren’t as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.
