Starling- Lesley Livingston
I love Lesley Livingston’s faerie series, Wonderous Strange, so when I heard there was going to be a spin-off focusing on the Fennrys Wolf, I was excited. Starling delivers with a stellar new heroine, Mason, who may not be a faerie princess but certainly is something equally as cool (no spoilers, I promise). The Norse mythology is fascinating and the intermingling of mythologies—the hints at the Wonderous Strange fae and the bits of Greek and Egyptian are smartly done. I was always a fan of Fennrys, but even more so here; it’s so nice to see him get a well deserved love interest after that whole self-sacrificing move of being escorted off by a Valkyrie previously. The end, well quite a bit happens and quite a bit is revealed but the cliffhanger will leave you screaming for the next book.Overall: A
Starling is out now from Harper Teen. Get your copy here.
