The Falconer

By: Elizabeth May
Location: FIC MAY
Genre: a wonderful mix of faeries, faery lore, secrets, magic, romance, steampunk, and Victorian society. 
Series: The Falconer #1

'Elizabeth May's debut is a wicked cocktail of Jane Austen's high society and the Grimm' fairy tales'.
SciFi Now

It is Scotland and the year is 1844. A year has passed since Aileana Kameron was found standing over the dead body of her mother, covered in blood. Everyone thinks she has something to do with it, but Aileana knows the truth. It was a faery who killed her mother and ripped out her heart.

Now all Aileana wants is revenge. As a result, she lives a double life, pretending to be interested in frivolous things like dances and dresses when making her appearances in high society, but when the light fades she goes out hunting. Night after night, she tracks and kills Fae, using the skills learned from her mentor, Kiaran MacKay. Kiaran, who is a faery himself, has his own reasons for wanting to see his own kind dead, but Aileana doesn't care, not as long as their goals align...and as long as she doesn't get too close
She's a stunner.
She's a liar.
She's a murderer.
She's a Falconer.
