"Love is just the beginning... of the end."
Mason Starling is a champion fencer for Gosforth Academy, but she’s never had to fight for her life. Until now. When a ferocious storm rips through Manhattan and unleashes terrifying creatures onto Gosforth’s campus, Mason barely escapes alive. Without help from the mysterious stranger who appeared in the midst of the storm, she might not have made it at all. But now, in the aftermath, Mason’s life begins to spin dramatically, mystically out of control, and the only one who seems able to help her is the stranger who can remember nothing but his name: Fennrys Wolf.
As Mason and Fenn uncover more about Fenn’s past and the strange events that surround them, they realize that Mason’s family — and its dark allegiance to the ancient Norse gods — is at the center of everything. A predetermined fate seems to be closing in on Mason, but is it possible to change one’s destiny?
Readers who fell in love with Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange trilogy and those who love Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will be captivated by the sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action of Starling.
You know, I'm thinking that I shouldn't even call this a review. More of a teaser. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of Starling from NetGalley and it was AWESOME! Ms. Livingston does not hold anything back when she dives into her heart-pounding adventure. Starling is one to watch in the coming month and after reading just a couple chapters of this title, I can guarantee you it is making its way to the top of my TBR pile in August when it is officially released. One last thing, shame on you HarperTeen for only letting us have a sneak peek at this book! Talk about a book tease!
