WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #73: The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) by Melissa Grey

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


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.

Expected publication: April 28th 2015


I like the sounds of everything about this book. In the past it would probably be something that I would have bypassed and maybe would have picked up eventually, but I've really tried to broaden my reading lately by reading books other than contemporary and realistic fiction. 
What book are you patiently waiting for the release of?

  7. Sound interesting and also really cute! I love those stories where there are disjointed families but they still manage to have the best relationships and still stick by each other.
    Other books I'm waiting for are
    Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan,
    Blue Lily Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater,
    The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
    and
    Corruption by Jessica Shirvington.
