Me on Waiting on Wednesday (126)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Descendant
Author: Lesley Livingston
Release Date: August 27, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

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.

There's some kind of awesome Canadian storytelling magic that Lesley works into every one of her books that makes me want to read them all as quickly as I can. As much as her other series pleases the British history and science fiction nerd in me, this series pleases the dark magic and suspense and mythology nerd in me. :)
