Lady Aileana Kameron was destined for a life which revolved around Edinburgh's social events - until the moment a faery killed her mother. Now, between high society balls, Aileana slaughters faeries in secret. Every night, armed with modified percussion pistols, explosives and a killer instinct, she sheds her aristocratic facade and goes hunting. She's looking for revenge, but she'll kill any fae that crosses her path. But there's another battle looming - one which her mysterious mentor, Kiaron MacKay, won't even talk about. And it has world-shattering consequences. 'Elizabeth May's debut is a wicked cocktail of Jane Austen's high society and the Grimms' fairy tales' SciFi Now Aileana will have to decide how much she's willing to lose - and just how far she'll go to avenge her mother.show more
