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, award-winning author Lesley Livingston’s epic Starling Saga is an intoxicating blend of sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action.

Starling introduces a cast of complex, intriguing characters who change and grow in satisfying ways… by building mythology into an accessible, modern-day story, Livingston sets her book apart. Memorable characters and a plot replete with some staggering acts of loyalty and betrayal will have fans eagerly awaiting the next installment.”

“I’m delighted that Lesley Livingston has chosen to re-introduce the Fennrys Wolf by way of his own series… and her innovative and rich melding of the Faery world with the realms of classic mythology is inspired. After all, many belief systems, including today’s religions, have similar or identical premises upon which they are founded. With the addition of Mason and Fennrys’ romance, sibling rivalries, peer relationships, and a classic good-versus-evil theme, Starling is that first burst of explosion at the onset of Ragnarok – it’s startling, it’s overwhelming, and it’s just the beginning.”
