Starling

Starling - Lesley Livingston I was really looking forward to reading this book! I've been going through a fencing phase and I really wanted to like this more!
The story is sweet and there are some cool fighting scenes, but I feel that they weren't highlighted like I expected them to be... Mason keeps losing her confidence in her skills and even after all the practice and effort she put into her traing a few verbal jabs from a former teammate are enough to throw her off her game. :P I expected Mason to be a more kickass character than that...
Fennrys was ok. Cute, strong, tortured, etc. I liked him like I liked Mason, but nothing more. The end didn't move me, even though it was supposed to be a cliffhanger I think... Maybe it was the fact that I couldn't relate to any of the characters, but it felt abrupt and a little flat.
Still, the world presented in this book though is interesting and I will probably pick up the next book, but I won't be waiting for it with baited breath.

Sweet, easy read from an interesting world. Torn between 2.5 or 3 stars... :P
