Waiting on Wednesday: Starling by Leslie Livingston

I so want to get my hands on a copy of this one!!! Mason sounds sexy! :)

Starling by Leslie Livingston
Release Date: August 28th/12.
Publisher: HarperTeen
Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
"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.

    Here's my WoW:

  15. oh gawd, I can't get over the name Mason. So I teach preschool and I used to have this kid in my class named Mason- I don't ever want to say anything negative towards a child or any of my students but oh my.. let's just say he was quite a handful.. ;) LOL With that being said, I'm not quite sure I could escape reality with this one.
