     Starling has been on my list for a while, I've been trying to get my hands on an ARC even to no avail. This book just has so much potential and a brilliant cover that goes so well with the synopsis. Starling a great sounding novel, that I hope brings part a romance and yet another strong female character.

Title: Starling
Date: August 28th, 2012

     "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.

     Starling, is about a predetermined fate I am not sure exactly that I buy into this whole predetermined thing anymore. Fallen kind of killed most of that for me. Its not that I don't agree with it, it just makes the story seem less interesting knowing that Mason can't make her own choices. So that's what my theory on this is, I just hope that it isn't so predetermined.

     Mason seems like a good strong female character, that not only is faced with the turmoil all around her after a freak storm, but a possible romance with Fennrys Wolf. My problem here is that a storm brings about terrifying creatures? That just seems too overdone that I wish there was something else, than a random freak storm to bring havoc. However, maybe I'm reading too much into this and I'm wrong. Either way I am looking forward to this book and can't wait to get my hands on it.
