Lady Aileana Kameron can sing, paint prettily, and murder the fae as easily as dancing a waltz. But how far is she prepared to go for vengeance . . . ?
Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844
18-year-old Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined to a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery kills her mother. Now it’s the 1844 winter season. Between a seeming endless number of parties, Aileana slaughters faeries in secret. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, every night she sheds her aristocratic facade and goes hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways. But she never even considered that she might become attracted to one. To the magnetic Kiaran MacKay, the faery who trained her to kill his own kind. Nor is she at all prepared for the revelation he’s going to bring. Because Midwinter is approaching, and with it an eclipse that has the ability to unlock a Fae prison and begin the Wild Hunt. A battle looms, and Aileana is going to have to decide how much she’s willing to lose – and just how far she’ll go to avenge her mother’s murder.
1. Epic cover.
2. She is slaughtering faeries in secret with pistols and explosives.

  5. I'm not the biggest fan of faerie books generally so I love that this book features a character hunting down and killing the Fae. Also love the awesome historical setting-I don't think I've ever read a book set in 1844 Edinburgh.

  18. Like Bookworm1858, I am not such a fan of Fae/fairy books, so I do sort of like the idea of Buffy the Fairy Hunter. Sign me up!!!

  19. This book sounds bad-ass and I have been looking forward to it for a while now. I kind of expected the cover to look different, but I'm still going to get this one as soon as I can.

  20. This sounds SO good! I wonder if she makes those modified weapons herself. If she does, I am totally SOLD. :D

  23. She hunts fairies?! This sounds awesome! I remember coming across it a few times, but I never really paid the blurb much attention. I'll definitely me getting my hands on this now. And yes, the cover is epic. :)

  24. Ummmmm YES PLEASE MEL! This sounds absurdly good! I love anything set in Scotland/Ireland so this is an automatic win for me. Add in a society girl who's slaying faeries in her spare time and then falls in love with one and I'm desperately counting the days until it releases:)
