Mason Starling is a champion fencer on the Gosforth Academy team, but she's never had to fight for her life. Not until the night a ferocious, otherworldly storm rips through Manhattan, trapping Mason and her teammates inside the school. Mason is besieged by nightmarish creatures more terrifying than the thunder and lightning as the raging tempest also brings a dangerous stranger into her life: a young man who remembers nothing but his name-the Fennrys Wolf. His arrival tears Mason's world apart, even as she feels an undeniable connection to him. Together, they seek to unravel the secrets of Fenn's identity as strange and supernatural forces gather around them. When they discover Mason's family-with its dark allegiance to ancient Norse gods-is at the heart of the mystery, Fennrys and Mason are suddenly faced with a terrifying future. Set against the gritty, shadowed back-drop of New York City, this first novel in award-winning author Lesley Livingston's epic Starling Saga is an intoxicating blend of sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action.

I was going through a time where I couldn't really sink my teeth into a good book, but when I picked this one up, I read it from beginning to end, no problem.
I must say, that there where some parts that really confused me, but it was-overall- a great story.
I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel!

Overall this was a really good book, but I found some parts really confusing. I haven't read Lesley Livingston's first series so that might have caused my confusion.

Although not completely necessary, I strongly recommend that readers first check out Lesley Livingston's first trilogy starting with Wondrous Strange. followed by Darklight and finally Tempestuous. Without giving to much away, this new story is based in the same "world/setting" as her first one.
Also this book is lovely and highly addictive, I read it in one go.

"What are you?" she repeated. " I mean ... so far this week I've worked my way through storm zombies, lizard mermaids, river goddesses, nasty flying things that I don't even want to know what they were, and stunt doubles for the hounds of the Baskervilles. So. What are you? Demon? Vampire?"
"Vampires don't exist." The man scoffed.
"Right. Silly me."
"I'm a werewolf"
