Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

 Release Date: August 27, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

Summary (from Goodreads): 
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.

After all the craziness that occurred in Starling, I can't wait to jump head first into danger and non-stop action all over again when Descendant is released. I'm sure Lesley Livingston will hold nothing back and put Mason and Fennrys through the ringer all over again. With Mason in Asgard, the situation sure seems dire, especially considering the fact that there's a prophecy she'll help destroy the world. I also sure love how this series reimagines the figures of Norse mythology in a completely refreshing way!

  2. Starling has been on my TBR list since it came out, but sadly haven't gotten to it. After watching Vikings, I'm ready to read some Norse inspired books.
