Starling
Lesley Livingston
Teen Fiction LIVINGS

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

The Fennrys Wolf (last seen in Livingston's Tempestuous) is bigger and badder than Red Riding Hood ever imagined, and he's just landed in Manhattan-tumbling naked through a stained-glass skylight, sword in hand. Few recognize him as the harbinger of Ragnarok, the end of the world, but many of those in the know are connected with Gosforth Academy, where the privileged, beautiful scions of the super-rich are expensively educated. Fennrys saves the fencing team from an inhuman onslaught with the timely assistance of Mason Starling, the team's Olympic hopeful. Each goes away from the encounter feeling a strange connection with the other, but Fennrys doesn't know who or what he is, and Mason discovers that she doesn't know herself much better. Livingston chooses action over introspection in this series launch, and lays out the plot in short scenes from various points of view that are kaleidoscopic without drawing readers too far into any one character. Like a stylish TV pilot, there are special effects and eye candy galore, making for a quick, pulse-pounding read. Ages 13-up. Agent: Jessica Regal, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency. (Sept.)
