Cover Reveal: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Sharing the cover for Talon today. And it looks AWESOME! <3 I love it. And I'm dying to read this book. Truly dying. I think it sounds amazing. And I love Julie Kagawa. So I just cannot wait to read this book. <3 Wishing it was out already :) October cannot get here fast enough. This cover is just gorgeous. I love it. And I love that the book is about dragons. Sigh. It sounds so good. But oh. I am worried. So worried. Because the reveal page on MTV says this: "finds herself in the middle of a twisted love triangle." And god no. Please. I don't want a love triangle. Hoping they are just saying that. And if there is a hint of a love triangle, please let it be over fast. I do not like triangles. AT ALL. And I think Talon can be such an amazing book without that included. <3 *Fingers crossed* But oh! Just talked a little with Julie about it on twitter. She says there is a triangle, but that it isn't a big part of the story; as the story focuses more on the plot. Which makes me very happy; as I think the plot sounds amazing. I'm still worried about the triangle, but I also know that I adore Julie's books. So I'm going to hope for the best. <3 Fingers crossed that I will enjoy it; or that it won't be so bad :) What do you think of this gorgeous cover for Talon? <3

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.


  1. I haven't read any of Kagawa's books yet, but I've wanted to. Especially the Iron Fey series. I've just been so busy with other series right now, The Lunar Chronicles, The Grisha Series and Daughter of Smoke & Bone.
    I'll WILL make sure I take the time to read this book when it comes out. Definitely sounds like something I will enjoy!!! xoxo

  3. WANT! I can't wait to read this one :-)

  4. Was so excited when I saw this cover, as it's beautiful! Julie is an awesome writer, so really looking forward to reading this one!

  5. I have hearts in my eyes looking at this cover, I just love it SOO much!! But I hadn't heard that yet about a love triangle - Bah! Hopefully everything else makes up for that.

  6. The cover is so beyond stunning! I love love the colour of the scales, it sort of has even texture!
    A mention of a love triangle is not something I'm looking forward to, but Julie is now one of my auto-buy author, so I cannot wait to read this one!

  7. omg!! I didn't know she has a new book out!! and ABOUT DRAGONS? is this a standalone or series? i also don't like the whole love triangle business but i'm so excited for the plot too! and the cover is amazing
