Waiting on Wednesday: Talon

Waiting on Wednesday's is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Talon #1
Julie Kagawa
October 28, 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

Why I Can't Wait: I have read all of Julie Kagawa's books that have been previously published and I have given all of them at least 4 out of 5 stars. And come on, a book about dragons? Yes, please.


  1. I love Julie kagawa's books and I can't wait to check this one out! I've read probably all her books. Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I love them all as well! Thanks for stopping by here too!

  2. I've loved all of her books that I've read too, so while I'm a bit hesitant about the main characters actually being dragons, I'm still definitely checking this one out :)
