Goodreads Description: 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?
Why am I waiting? I'm not as familiar with Norse mythology as I am with Greek mythology so I'm looking forward to learning something new. Also, I loved the Fennrys Wolf in Livingston's Wondrous Strange trilogy - I'm assuming he's the same one - which is why I'm excited to see more of him in Starling. Lastly, considering Livingston's - a fellow Canadian (and an author I've been lucky to meet)! - Wondrous Strange trilogy is one of the rare faerie series I've liked, it'll be interesting to see what I think of Starling because unlike faerie novels, I actually enjoy mythologies.
