Descendant is the second book in a series called Starling by Lesley Livingston. First off is you haven’t read the first book in the series, I highly recommend you do. Although you can still understand the plot of Descendant without it, it makes it a lot easier to understand the back story of the main characters and it is also a very compelling novel. Descendant mainly takes place in Manhattan. The story follows the growing love of Mason Starling and a man named Fennrys Wolf. Although one of the main themes is young love there are many other plots and side stories which the reader can be immersed in. Livingston does a fantastic job of describing the scenes and character emotions to the point where I can actually picture everything happening in my head.

The characters in Descendant are all interesting and diverse. They range from gods with a compassion for humanity to power hungry humans with a destructive mindset. What I really enjoyed about the characters is how situations and obstacles they had to overcome, caused them to develop quickly but still in a way where I could relate to them. Another thing I enjoyed was the way the story moved quickly from one scene to another but had a great flow to it. It wasn’t all over the place and it didn’t stand still for too long. The way Livingston included Greek and Norse mythology into the novel was also interesting. Although I don’t know if it is historically correct, I can say it’s a very well thought out concept and Livingston should be proud of her creativity.

All in all Descendant was a very good read and I would recommend it to teens looking for an action packed novel, with a bit of romance to boot. I give Descendant 4 out of 5 stars.
