add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: Mason Starling is a champion fencer on the Gosforth Academy team, but she’s never had to fight for her life. Not until the night a ferocious, otherworldly storm rips through Manhattan, trapping Mason and her teammates inside the school. Mason is besieged by nightmarish creatures more terrifying than the thunder and lightning as the raging tempest also brings a dangerous stranger into her life: a young man who remembers nothing but his name—the Fennrys Wolf. His arrival tears Mason’s world apart, even as she feels an undeniable connection to him. Together, they seek to unravel the secrets of Fenn’s identity as strange and supernatural forces gather around them. When they discover Mason’s family—with its dark allegiance to ancient Norse gods—is at the heart of the mystery, Fennrys and Mason are suddenly faced with a terrifying future.Set against the gritty, shadowed back-drop of New York City, this first novel in award-winning author Lesley Livingston’s epic Starling Saga is an intoxicating blend of sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action.


My first thought when i seen the cover was “Intense and spooky”. I like that in a cover. The cover has this darkness feel to it. I was really excited to read this book by Lesley. I also loved the fact that this book is based on Mythical gods. I giggled like a fan girl when Thor and Loki and Asgard was mention, cause i just finished the Avengers..Yeah i know, not related at all.

The book starts off with mason fencing in the gym when a huge storm happens, knocking a tree into the window and zombie like creatures start to attacking everyone in the gym. A boy named Fennerys Wolf comes in a saves them while naked i shall point out. Which by the way i thought was an awesome way to start a book. I also heard that Fennerys Wolf first appears in Lesley’s other series Called Wondrous Strange. Which will help explain a lot of things while reading Starling. Crazy things start to happen to Mason after that. She has to deal with monsters and Betrayal from the ones she loves. While reading starling you learn you can’t trust everyone.

The Whole book was a mind blowing Experience for the beginning to the end. My Hands were griping the pages every time something intense or crazy happened. The book was full of action and a little bit of romance. After i finished the book, i had to take a breather! and think about what just happened. It ends with this huge cliff hanger, i don’t think i will ever get over with until i read the 2nd book! I need to know what will happened with Mason and Fenn. Like A.S.A.P!

Overall Mind Blowing. Loved the characters in the book, the cover, The whole freaking package. An amazing read that will seriously have you biting your nails the whole time reading.
