Book Description:

The last thing Mason Starling remembers is the train crossing a bridge. An explosion . . . a blinding light . . . then darkness. Now she is alone, stranded in Asgard—the realm of Norse legend—and the only way for her to get home is to find the Spear of Odin, a powerful relic left behind by vanished gods.

The Fennrys Wolf knows all about Asgard. He was once trapped there. And he’ll do whatever it takes to find the girl who’s stolen his heart and bring her back—even if it means a treacherous descent into the Underworld. But time is running out, and Fenn knows something Mason doesn’t: If she takes up the Spear, she’ll set in motion a terrible prophecy. And she won’t just return to her world . . . she’ll destroy it.

In this pulse-pounding sequel to Starling, Lesley Livingston delivers another electrifying blend of nonstop action and undeniable romance that will leave readers breathless.


Another great books by Lesley Livingston. This book didn’t miss a beat, it picked up right where Starling ended. Love the characters, the story line and all the mythological creatures woven in. Kept my interest and I breezed through it then immediately started the next book in the series.  My only complaint is I wish there was a little less language.  Very entertaining!

  1. I haven’t read any of the books in this series before, but the cover to this one caught my eye immediately. I might go back and check out the first book, especially as you seem to have enjoyed this one as a sequel so much!
