Waiting on Wednesday (42)




For those of you who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to reading.


THIS WEEK'S PICK:
STARLING BY LESLEY LIVINGSTON

"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.


I am a big fan of Lesley Livingston and her books, so you can imagine how excited I am about her upcoming book. She just has a way to telling stories that draws me in completely and I'm hoping it won't be any different with Starling. Plus it looks like one of my favorite characters from her Wondrous Strange series is going to be making an appearance in this new series.

Starling by Lesley Livingston will be published August 15th, 2012 by HarperTeen.
