Starling: Coming soon

Lesley Livingston, author of Once Every Never (Puffin Canada, 2011) which I reviewed here on December 12, 2011, is heralding a new fantasy YA series with this debut book, Starling, published by HarperCollins.  According to Lesley Livingston's blog, the author is "thrilled to death and beyond" (Sunday, February 26, 2012) with this newly-revealed cover for Starling.

According to the blurb on the author's blog, the story starts with a young woman, Mason Starling, who rescues an unconscious young man named Fennrys Wolf.  Except for his name, Fennrys has no memory, even of his role in opening the barrier between our mortal world and the Beyond Realms.  But this breach allows access to a center of dark energy, located in New York City's East River.  The consequent power struggle between underworld cartels of Norse, Greek and Egyptian gods and other entities places Mason Starling in danger and wondering who she can trust and who wants her dead.

If she is true to her skills, Lesley Livingston will have written another great tome in which  mythology is interwoven with fantasy, romance and hopefully her signature humour.

Look for Starling in August, 2012.
