Starling by Lesley Livingston
Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected Publication: August 15, 2012

"Love is just the beginning... of the end."

When Mason Starling rescues an unconscious young man from the ravages of a terrible storm—and he rescues her from the otherworldly creatures lurking in that storm—little does she know her whole life is about to spiral dramatically, mystically out of control. Someone is trying to kill her, someone else is trying to use her, and the only one who seems willing to help her is the tantalizing, dangerous stranger who can’t even remember who—or what—he is. All he remembers is his name: Fennrys Wolf.

What Fennrys doesn’t know is that, thanks in part to his past actions, a crack has appeared in the barrier between the mortal world and the Beyond Realms. The crack has opened up a nexus of dark energy in the middle of the East River and it’s attracting the attention of powerful entities on both sides of the rift.

Because of that, a longstanding truce involving the members of several ancient underworld cartels is now in jeopardy. Mason, Fennrys, and the students of elite Gosforth Academy—a neutral-ground “safe haven” for children of the Families—soon find themselves caught in the crossfire as the servants of the warring pantheons fight to see whose gods come out on top...and whose demons go down in flames.

Set in New York City, with all its dark, gritty sparkle, the STARLING saga explores the spaces between the worlds and the realms of the ancient gods… only a heartbeat beyond. It’s a tale spun from ancient mythologies—Norse and Greek and Egyptian—filled to the brim with adventure, danger, and romance, and played out against the backdrop of a city with its own siren-song.

From the universe of Lesley Livingston’s WONDROUS STRANGE, a new series and captivating heroine make their exciting debut.

  1. OMG! I had never heard of this author until this post. Soon as you said that Livingston has a passion for history I checked out "Once Every Never" on Goodreads. It looks AWESOME! That click you just heard? That was me adding it to my to read list. :)

    Now, onto the book at hand. The cover is so pretty! The fog and the reflected title in the water make it really stand out. The summary sounds interesting, but I'm not feeling the name Fennrys too much LOL. But I really like the idea of the Academy and the mix of ancient mythologies!

    Great reveal and I love how you always talk about what YOU like when you do a book reveal!

    P.S: Totally bought Graceling based on your description and excitement for Bitterblue & the series in your first IMM vlog post and our convo in the comments :)
