  • 2.5 stars I liked the Norse mythology aspects and fencing, but wasn t too into the romance I guess the general plot didn t really pull me in either And there were just a lot of vaguely sexist comments or a weird attitude towards other girls that got old I really like some of this author s other books, but I m not sure I ll be finishing this particular trilogy.


  • 1.5 StarsMason Starling is a champion fencer One night while in the middle of practice, a terrible storm rips through her swanky New York school With the storm comes some apocalyptic killer zombie and a naked sword wielding blonde worrier, The Fennrys Wolf Who also happens to have a bad case of amnesia This book revolves around Norse mythology and prophecies for the end of the world and somehow Mason is caught in the middle of it all.That sounds awesome right WELL DON T BE FOOLED The opening seq [...]

  • Edit listened to this again January 2015 Just as good the 2nd time through read originally February 2013 I really enjoyed Lesley Livingston s Wonderous Strange Series so I was excited to start her newest series Starling I listened to the audio version of this book which was narrated by Lesley I m not usually a fan of author narrated books but Lesley is definitely an exception to that rule She does a great job of bringing her books to life.Starling is based on Norse mythology which I m not very f [...]


  • Hey, guys Do you want a book full of action Adventure Mystery Mythology Stuff happening Excitement Battles Yes Sound awesome OMG and this book opens with a tense battle in a gymnasium with mysterious monsters and a naked guy that fell out of nowhere SO COOL Oh, wait, it was all a trick.Yes, that s right, if you read this book and love the first three chapters, you might as well put it down after that and call it a short story After that first blush of action, the book then proceeds to crank up t [...]


  • Starling almost convinced me I was curious with the second volume, but don t know if it s enough to give a second chance Starling is a story of fantasy genre, which brings us many secrets and mysteries, a collision between two worlds, where a human world start to appear supernatural beings A completely elitist school, follows the first incident with supernatural beings, which makes some students realize that maybe that school hide something as well as hides something the founding families Mason [...]

  • I really didn t know what to expect with this book and I don t know what to say now that I ve finished it, except where the hell is book 2 already I have to say, Starling kept me as fixated as what Cassandra Clare did with The Mortal Instruments so much was going on and I was enthralled from start to finish or should I say from start to BLOODY CLIFF HANGER In no way am I comparing the books, I just mean that I loved this one in just the same wayOh My God What An Ending I DID NOT see this one com [...]


  • There wasn t anything horribly wrong with this book, it was just slow, and I found it pretty put down able.Mason was an okay character, but I didn t love her She had a bit of a rough time of it with her dad and being attacked repeatedly, but I just didn t love her.The storyline in this had plenty of action, but I found it really put down able I would read a couple of pages, then I d find something else to do It just didn t engage me the way I wanted it to.There was some romance, but it was a lit [...]


  • I m going to put this out there and make no bones about it I didn t care for Starling There were a few different reasons for that, some of which are just bad timing and others which involve Starling running along classic YA tropes I personally dislike Now, some books I don t like leave a bad taste in my mouth, make me angry, but this one didn t I know many readers will enjoy this, and I do not begrudge them that It just was not for me.Starling sounded so up my aisle like you wouldn t believe I m [...]


  • This wasn t a terrible book but it wasn t great either I felt that there should have been action Most mythology books usually do I will admit I was intrigued by the ending Someday maybe I will continue this trilogy.


  • The synopsis of this book had me so excited, a girl who is a gifted fencer, a wolf, monsters, mythology and the apocalypse Nothing could go wrong, Right Wrong The very beginning of the book first couple of chapters was exhilarating, a monstrous storm blows through New York City, blowing a tree through Gosforth Academy s Gym where the protagonist Mason and her classmates happen to be Zombie like creatures called the draugr attack them A mysterious naked young man who is later revealed to be Fennr [...]


  • Lesley Livingston keeps getting better and better and she started at amazing, so that s saying something Her latest, STARLING, collects a favourite character from her previous books won t spoil it by saying who and launches him into new and bigger problems He s not alone There s a new fabulous, gutsy, real heroine named Mason Starling introduced in this, the first of the Starling saga books.I, for one, CAN T WAIT for Excellently written, paced, imagined Truly an exceptional book by a writer gro [...]


  • My review can also be found on Reading Lark readinglark 2012 0Oh how I missed being in Lesley Livingston s awesome fictional universe I absolutely loved her debut trilogy, Wondrous Strange, and specifically the Fennrys Wolf So, you can imagine how excited I was when we learned who was going to be part of her new trilogy you guessed it our beloved FENNRYS While it s not imperative to be familiar with the Wondrous Strange world before cracking open Starling, I will say that the events in those boo [...]


  • At a Glance Starling was an exciting beginning to new story where so many supernatural and mythological creatures come together Being based mostly on Norse mythology, but with pieces of faery lore, made this book something original and intense I really enjoyed it The Audio I love it when the author reads her own books for the audio production, if she s good, that is I thought Lesley did a great job with the reading She sounded as good as any other reader I ve heard, and I liked knowing that she [...]


  • I was so looking forward to this book as although the Wondrous Strange trilogy is not my favorite YA series, it is one I really enjoyed The Fennrys Wolfor Fenn is my favorite character in that series although he is or less part of a triangle the left out part Just a little background but The Fennrys Wolf was kidnapped by the fey King as a small child and trained and made into a Janus Guard and thus has long outlived his family and time in the real world He was a Viking Prince destined to be a l [...]


  • I was really looking forward to reading this book I ve been going through a fencing phase and I really wanted to like this The story is sweet and there are some cool fighting scenes, but I feel that they weren t highlighted like I expected them to be Mason keeps losing her confidence in her skills and even after all the practice and effort she put into her traing a few verbal jabs from a former teammate are enough to throw her off her game P I expected Mason to be a kickass character than that [...]


  • I really enjoyed the book It had MAGIC, LOVE, WONDER, BEAST, FARIES, and FATE in it It was a good book and a book worth reading in anyone s free time The book wasn t bad, but it wasn t my favorite book either It was average enough to read and good enough to keep me interested Read the series if you haven t yet, so you can see for yourself


  • Wait Fennrys Wolf as in the same Fennrys Wolf from Wondrous Strange Is she mixing the two series together or something


  • Not bad, but the accent in the audio copy is distracting Bounces between new England accent and Canadian Words like been, sorry, and again sound so off compared to the rest of the reading.


  • 3.5 stars.Okay, first off WHERE ON ASGARD IS THE SECOND BOOK Cover Excuse me Cover design artists Can I has your attention ahem Mason s hair is black as Fenn points out on than occasion Not brownHer eyes are sapphire blue Not brown.Why is she in water What kind of a blurb is that I liked it an interesting, fast read I was never bored or wanted to chuck it aside I liked the characters Esp Fenn, the poor dear.This book is similar but different enough from Wondrous Strange trilogy that it didn t [...]


  • STARLING is an exciting and action packed adventure, with a fierce heroine, an even fiercer hero, shocking twists and turns and an ending that will make you desperate to get your hands on the next book in the series.The story instantly pulls you in, introduces you to the world and nearly tears it apart, all within the first few pages It s fast paced, it s wildly entertaining, it s got than a little sizzle, and it will be impossible to put down until you ve met every deadly threat and witnessed [...]


  • Jeezums Well there s a cliffy if I ever saw oneghview to come See the full review on my blog much ado about books.I ll start off by saying I m already a fan of Lesley Livingston I read her Wondrous Strange trilogy in the span of two days I love anything Shakespeare, if you haven t gotten that already When I heard about this book, I didn t know until quite a while later, that it was a spin off series, sort of centering around the supporting character, Fennrys Now Fenn was never my favorite charac [...]


  • 4.5 5 stars.Here s what makes me different from a lot of fans who liked this book I really did NOT like the previous trilogy featuring Fennrys Wolf, Wondrous Strange I couldn t get into it, couldn t relate to it But in Starling , Livingston feels like a totally new writer I didn t want to throw the book across the room, I didn t want to punch the heroine Livingston has made leaps and bounds of progress in Starling , and you can definitely bet that I m reading book two.Now, what I m not sure of i [...]

  • 3.5 starsA good and solid start to Livingston s new mythology based trilogy, which intertwines Nordic, Greek and Egyptian mythology with fey folklore and legends, all staged in present day New York City.Mason Starling is a young woman born to privilege and tragedy Her mother dies giving birth to her Her father is a shipping magnate and a very successful businessman from a long and proud line of shipping tycoons Gunnar Starling has high expectations of his children and is a distant, authoritative [...]


  • More of my reviews can be found on my blog Literary ExplorationLesley Livingston s Starling is an epic adventure filled with Norse mythology and fantastical elements I ve always been a fan of mythology, but Norse mythology is a rarity in YA fiction Livingston did a wonderful job uniting the fantastical with reality Sometimes mystical creatures are hidden right in plain sight There was little that I didn t like about Starling It s an epic adventure filled with strong characters and intriguing new [...]


  • I greatly enjoyed WONDROUS STRANGE the year it came out But that was also long enough ago that my reading taste has evolved drastically I don t know if Livingston s writing has always been this way and I liked it when I was younger, or if this book just missed the mark that WONDROUS STRANGE was able to hit Either way, I think I went in expecting too much and was, unfortunately, disappointed.While the opening sequence of this book is awesome in the sense that it is packed full of action, that s [...]


  • This book wasn t exactly up to my expectations I was expecting a fast paced novel that would rock my socks off with all its mythology and action, but what I got was just a mythological novel that fell flat to me.Mason Starling is a girl who is a master in fencing She can take over any competition and win against anyone One night while practicing, a storm come and almost wipes out her entire school, Gosforth Academy With the storm comes a mysterious stranger whom makes all the difference in Mason [...]
