Does the girl on the cover remind anyone else of Kristen Stewart? Anyone? No? Just me? That’s cool…

So, this book took me over a week to read. Coming from the girl who reads a book a day on average, this raises some eyebrows.
But why did it take me so long to read this book?
I don’t know. I enjoyed ALL the characters, the plot was not at all slow, and the romance wasn’t bad, either. Those the three criteria on which I usually grade, and there were all either on or above average level.

The problem, I think, was the book I read RIGHT BEFORE this one, which may have put me in a reading slump.

Nonetheless, I assure you I will reread this book when the whole trilogy is out and I an get all three from the library.

Until next time…

So much irritating melodrama. ( )

Read my overall review of the whole series here! Spoiler Free!

Lesley Livingston is one of my must-read authors. I love her work. Her stories always have a fabulous blend of action, romance and awesome background stories of legends or older stories. When I heard that she was writing a spin-off from the Wondrous Strange Series (an all time favourite series of mine), I grabbed a copy as soon as I was able.

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. Mason was a kick-ass heroine and her family story was super interesting. Fennrys wasn't one of my favourite characters from the Wondrous Strange series but he really grew on me in this one. Like most characters who are in the original series, you often judge them through the eyes of another character. But when the perspective shifts to them in a new series (or even a later book) you really appreciate them as a character.

There was a lot going on in this book so it was never a dull moment! There are a few twists here and there so it wasn't predictable (BONUS!). I also loved the Norse god mythology in this. It's something that isn't as popular in young adult books so it was a nice change from faeries and vampires.

I recommend that you make note of details in this book as it will pay off in seeing why things are happening and they will no doubt influence the rest of the books in the series.

Overall: Starling is quite different from [b:Wondrous Strange|3064985|Wondrous Strange (Wondrous Strange, #1)|Lesley Livingston|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327879404s/3064985.jpg|3095990] because of the use of Norse legends instead of the Shakespearian faeries. It is still written in similar style but the characters and plots are completely different. It's a nice change but fans of the first series will like this one I'm sure. You also don't have to read the Wondrous Strange Series first, but it will help set some context for this series.

I couldn't even believe this book! I mean...I read it in less than 6 hours, it was that good! Fast-paced action, serious swooning over Fenn, and MYTHOLOGY!!!! I have always enjoyed reading about different mythologies, Greek being my favorite, but I don't really know much about the Norse. That put me at a disadvantage, knowing who was who and why they're that way, but I really want to learn more. It was fun for me when I was able to recognize someone I did know about, like who Rafe is and some of the monsters. And boy, I hope Rory really gets his. What a total reject. (Reject is about the nicest thing I could think of to put in the review. My feelings for him are much stronger.) Everyone needs to read this book!!! ( )

Mason's life is turned upside down one night when she gets locked into the school gymnasium with her brother, two other students and a teacher. They are attacked by draugrs and saved by the Fenrys Wolf. The group decides to keep the actual events of the night a secret, since the both the draugr and the Fenrys Wolf disappear, but Mason can't seem to get away from them; particularly when she starts spending more time with the Wolf.

There aren't as many based on mythology books are based on Greek myths. I liked that this one was based on more heavily on the Norse myths (even though there are several other mythologies referenced as well.) I liked Mason and Fenrys although the number of times that they each mentioned the attractiveness of the others eyes was a little bit excessive. I also wish they had gotten to know each other rather then doing the insta-attraction but such is paranormal romance. I do wish that we had gotten to see a little bit more of the development of Heather and Mason's friendship, and am hoping that comes in the next one since I really liked Heather and am curious about her ability to see love. I also wish Cal hadn't gotten it quite so tough. I'm assuming that he ends up in the next one but I wont explain why b/c that would be spoilerific.
