The Falconer
The Falconer | Elizabeth May
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.

Faeries, action, romance, snarky comments, mystery, impending doom, Scotland, steampunk, secrets. That pretty much sums up this amazing book! This was everything ACOTAR wishes it was. It was so fast paced and action packed, the main character was so cool, and didn't need anyone to protect her, she had weaknesses which made her more believable. The storyline is the chosen one trope, but it was done so well. Now I need book 2 after the cliffhanger!

So I got distracted and read a different book before picking this one up. It was definitely not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be more of an epic fantasy, but it was more Victorian kind of Steampunk with faeries. It was a quick read and I enjoyed it and plan on continuing the series.

After much deliberation, this will be my next Kindle read. Edinburgh, 1844. Aileana Kameron only looks the part of an aristocratic young lady, 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, her quest for revenge gets more complicated.

The Falconer is on my list of underrated reads. If you want a solid fantasy with a sassy pixie named Derrick, try this one. It is good!

Really good book, I was having my doubts but the last 100 pages really turned this book around for me! I enjoyed its steampunk element and Derrick as a character the most. The cliffhanger was enough to make me decide I want to continue with the series.

3.8 out of 5.00
I picked this book mainly because of the cover, and the steam punk element. It's a classic good vs evil, seelie and unseelie court, with bad-ass strong woman character, and over-the-moon fae male. Great ending such a cliff-hanger. Though i binge reading this book with several others, but the ending is enough for me to pick up the second book.

I'm 50 pages from being done. This book is SO good. Also anyone else think that Kiaran reminds them a little bit of Rhys from ACOTAR? I'm so behind on updating my reviews on here. (Thanks to working 60 hours and being moved to 3rd shift recently) Also shockingly found out it was the debut novel of the author. Excellent writing, world building & character development. #thefalconer #acotar #rhys #kiaranmckay #fae #scaryfaeries #yabooks #moreplease

Faeries, fighting, a little romance, pain, acceptance and a lot of ass kicking. I loved that there is always something happening in this story, no downtime ever. I would love to have a honey loving little faery who mends my clothes. I am going to assume (HOPE) there is going to be another book based on how the story ended on a cliffhanger which made me say more than a few curse words😂😂

Christine11 Love the cover! 😊 5y

Awesome book! It was almost as if Buffy were set in a Steampunk Victorian England with fairies instead of vampires and a fairy version of Spike was her watcher. Off to order the next 2 in the trilogy from the library!

3.75/5
huh...that is not what I was expecting from this book. I picked it up mostly because of the cover and seeing it flagged somewhere as historical fiction and Scotland which is my wheelhouse. It is predominately a book about faeries.

The main character's inventions and science were left really underdeveloped and too much insta-love for my liking.

PS please note the skill of my pitbull taking up a whole loveseat

I really enjoyed this. It was a splendid mix of historical fiction, steampunk and fantasy. It was action-packed and fast paced with snarkey banter and a loveable set of main characters.
There weren't many surprises but it was still a fun read and I look forward to starting the second book soonest.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Originally loved this book, reading it the second time I still enjoyed it but didn't find the same love I initially had for the hotheaded heroine. Fast paced, you drop into the action almost immediately and it doesn't stop. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
