Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Debutante by day. Murderess by night. Edinburgh's only hope.<br> <br> Edinburgh, 1844. Beautiful Aileana Kameron only looks the part of an aristocratic young lady. In fact, she's spent the year since her mother died developing her ability to sense the presence of Sithichean, a faery race bent on slaughtering humans. She has a secret mission: to destroy the faery who murdered her mother. But when she learns she's a Falconer, the last in a line of female warriors and the sole hope of preventing a powerful faery population from massacring all of humanity, her quest for revenge gets a whole lot more complicated. The first volume of a trilogy from an exciting new voice in young adult fantasy, this electrifying thriller blends romance and action with steampunk technology and Scottish lore in a deliciously addictive read.

Horn Book Review

Lady Aileana Kameron is the Falconer, a fae-hunting warrior bent on avenging her mother's murder by a vicious faery. She struggles to balance the niceties of nineteenth-century Scottish nobility and her violent purpose as she begins a romance with the mysteriously exiled Daoine Sith, Kiaran. The flashy combination of steampunk technologies and Scottish faery lore will draw many to the new trilogy. (c) Copyright 2014. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
