"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week, I'm featuring:
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
Book One of The Girl at Midnight series
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
Summary (from Goodreads):
For readers of Cassandra Clare's City of Bones and Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone, The Girl at Midnight is the story of a modern girl caught in an ancient war.
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.
Loveeeeee the gorgeous purple cover! Purple is my favorite color! Plus this is fantasy! WOOT!

The cover is a stunner, that summary is amazing and it's been compared to Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I'm SOLD!ReplyDelete
Great pick Alyssa!
I'm wary of that comparison (those are some serious shoes to fill), but I'm excited!Delete
Yeah is a double edged sword that comparison, but if it can achieve some of the magic of the world building and narrative, I want to read it!Delete
new to me but looks interesting -- hope you get to read it soon. Happy wednesdayReplyDelete

I remember seeing another cover for this book but this one's equally as beautiful!! My sister's favourite colour is purple too. She might go nuts if she sees this even though she doesn't read haha. Great pick :DReplyDelete
YAY! You should show it to her ;) Thank you!Delete

This one does sound really good. Mainly because Echo sounds like a fabulous protagonist, and I really want to read more about her! Excellent pick- and I am with you on the cover :)ReplyDelete
Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight
I agree! I hope I like her, as a protagonist. And the book in general! Ah!Delete
I don't love the cover as a whole, but I do like the bits and pieces from it. Still, the synopsis is definitely intriguing, and I'd be an idiot to pass this one up. I really hope this book ends up being fabulous!ReplyDelete
