Title: Starling (Click for Goodreads)

Author: Lesley Livingston

ETA: August 28th, 2012

Summary from 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.

Why I’m Waiting: GUYS. GUYS GUYS! I first found out about this book on a Waiting on Wednesday post ages ago and GUYS I’ve been psyched for it ever since. Champion fencer? Norse Gods? A shout out to Mortal Instruments fans? The fact that I haven’t preordered this yet is because I can’t remember the address I’ll be located at when it’s released. 😛
