Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book released we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
Release Date: 28th April 2015
“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.”
The synopsis reminds me slightly of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone and thats a good thing because i loved the book. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Melissa does with the story and finding out more about Echo and her people. I also really enjoy books with magic systems and finding out how they work, the blurb hasn’t given away anything and i’m really looking forward to finding out for myself.
What are your picks for this week?
Thanks for reading,
