STARLING Cover Reveal!!!! And Giveaway!!

As you can see, I have been blessed by the Goddess of Cover Art Awesomeness once again!

There’s very little I can say about this cover other than I am

“Thrilling and intense; pulls you along lik
e the inevitable rush toward Ragnarok.”
~ Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of the IRON FEY series

“A must read for all mythology fans!”
~ Josephine Angelini, bestselling author of STARCROSSED

“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.

    Tha’s a pretty cool cover. I love the triology series to Wondrous Strange. But I only had a chance to read that one, and Darklight (it’s been awhile though). Hopefully I get to read the third part soon enough. I love the series. And the world you created. ^_^.

    OMG, I’m so excited for this spin-off! Lesley you are a goddess. I hadn’t really thought about Fenrys having his own story, but now I’m totally digging the idea. I loved him in Wondrous Strange even if he was mucking things up for Sonny *lol*

  18. Tyanna says:

    Starling sounds like a great book! The cover looks stunning!

    I loved the Wondrous Strange series so much that when I finished Darklight, I asked my mom and dad to drive me 150 km from Campbell River BC to Nanaimo to get Tempestuous! After I finished the series I was sooo sad! I am happy that there is another series coming out with 1 of the same characters(Fennrys Wolf)

    You are such a great author Lesley I would love to win the autographed hard cover Wondrous Strange series because I used mine so much they are starting to tear!

    I am only 11 years old and you are my favorite author and you will always be my favorite author!

    P.S. Wouldn’t it be great if the Wondrous Strange series were made into movies!

    Sincerely: Your number 1 fan Tyanna
