The Girl at Midnight
by Melissa Grey

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.
I heard about this book at the beginning of the week and it looks seriously awesome. I'm all for unique fantasy worlds, and that's exactly what this sounds like. And I already love the sound of the main character, Echo ... and that's without having met her!
Plus, who can resist that cover?

This looks like a seriously good book, and it's the beginning of a series, so there will be even more awesome to follow.
This is released in the UK in April by ATOM, so I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for it on the release date!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
