#BookReview: The Falconer (The Falconer, #1) by @_elizabethmay @ChronicleBooks #Netgalley

 
One girl's nightmare is this girl's faery tale

She's a stunner.
Edinburgh, 1844. Eighteen-year-old Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, has everything a girl could dream of: brains, charm, wealth, a title—and drop-dead beauty.

She's a liar.
But Aileana only looks the part of an aristocratic young lady. she's leading a double life: She has a rare ability to sense the sìthíchean—the faery race obsessed with slaughtering humans—and, with the aid of a mysterious mentor, has spent the year since her mother died learning how to kill them.

She's a murderer.
Now Aileana is dedicated to slaying the fae before they take innocent lives. With her knack for inventing ingenious tools and weapons—from flying machines to detonators to lightning pistols—ruthless Aileana has one goal: Destroy the faery who destroyed her mother.

She's a Falconer.
The last in a line of female warriors born with a gift for hunting and killing the fae, Aileana is the sole hope of preventing a powerful faery population from massacring all of humanity. Suddenly, her quest is a lot more complicated. She still longs to avenge her mother's murder—but she'll have to save the world first.

The first volume of a trilogy from an exciting new voice in young adult fantasy, this electrifying thriller combines romance and action, steampunk technology and Scottish lore in a deliciously addictive read.

This was a great book!  If you love the Fey and those who hunt them this is the book for you. I really enjoyed how the MC didnt let society stop her from doing what she knew needed to be done.  That avenging her mother's death was the first priority she needed to do along with helping others from being killed.  The plot/storyline was wonderfully paced and things unfolded for me ver well.  The only thing I didnt like about this book was then end as it didnt sum anything up at all. It just ended. I know that there are two other books to this series but I would have liked to see a real end.  This one ends on a cliffhanger that really made me think that there was another page to the book.  It felt weird the way it ended.  

Other than that this book was amazing I am so mad that it took me this long to finally get to it.  I cant wait to read the other two books which thankfully I have!
