Waiting on Wednesday- Talon Vol. 1: Scourge of the Owls


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This day allows us to share news on upcoming releases that have us on the edge of our seats in anticipation.

I am really intrigued by this comic series. I loved the Batman: Court of Owls books and when I saw this I had to see what it is all about. Here is the Goodreads blurb:
As a young performer with Haly's Circus, young Calvin Rose was secretly being raised to be a master assassin--a killing machine called a Talon. The Talons have always served the mysterious Court of Owls, a group of wealthy individuals who will stop at nothing to maintain their grip on power in Gotham City.  When Rose defects from the Talon's ranks, he is marked for death and spends the next few years using all his training to hide from his former masters.

After years on the run, Rose finally returns to Gotham City following the horrors of "The Night of Owls."  He'll set off to investigate what remains of the Court of Owls, but will he be able to gain his freedom at long last?
Haly's circus is the very same circus that Dick Greyson (Nightwing) grew up in. I am very interested to see what secrets the circus may hold that will link to the Greysons. Should be a good read and I look forward to reading this and putting the review here for everyone to read. This book is set to be released on September 3, 20013.
