From the Back Cover
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.See all Product description

As Mason struggles to find her way back to the mortal realm, Fennrys Wolf who was injured in a fight to save the girl he loves will do anything to cross the boundary to the Underworld to save her. Knowing the power and prophecy of the spear Fenn with the help of his friend Rafe, an Egyptian god set out on a quest to save Mason and avert the destruction of the mortal world.
In another plot line Heather Palmerston, Mason's friend who was also kidnapped by a demented Rory Starling not only tries to return to the safety of Gosforth, to get over her unrequited love for Calum Aristarchus, but is also instrumental in trying to save the life of Rothgar Starling, the eldest of the Starling siblings.
This plot is action-packed and electrifying as it moves between the mortal and immortal realms. The characters bring cohesion to the plots which will intersect at the end and make unbelievable events seem probable. Mason is strong, determined and unstoppable in trying to find her way back to Fenn. Likewise Fennrys Wolfe is resolute and relentless in his mission as he discovers the depth of his love for Mason. Heather Palmerston is brave and resolute as she struggles to make sense of the unexplainable events in her life. Add to these three, the Egyptian god Rafe who seems altruistic in his desire to help Fenn, a calculating semi-god Calum who has suddenly discovered new powers, and a notorious student Gwen Littlefield with her bright purple hair and precognitive ability. The antagonists in the story are also unforgettable; Mason's deranged brother Rory, their egocentric father Gunnar Starling and the power-hungry, unstable Daria Aristarchus.
The story is filled with unexpected twists and turns that will keep the reader enthralled and guessing right to the end. I enjoyed the sequel and look forward to reading the next book in the trilogy
And I just found Heather's narratives unnecessary. For the most part, they didn't add anything to the story, and frankly they just annoyed the Hel out of me, since they only appeared when something was happening to another character I actually heated to be reading about. Same goes for Cal's narratives. Just pointless.
Other than that, the book was fairly eventful. This is definitely a book that was made to prepare the readers for a grand finale. Can't wait to see just what that finale is!!
