BOOK TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Flight by Alissa Rose Ivy
by Alissa Rose Ivy
The Crescent Chronicles, Book One
Sometimes you just have to take flight.
A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.
Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.
MY THOUGHTS: 3.5 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
Allie thinks she is embarking on an adventure by going to New Orleans the summer before she starts college to work in her father’s hotel. But when she meets the fun and sexy Levi, she has no idea just how much adventure she is getting into.
By getting involved with Levi, she also learns about the secret he hides. Allie never expected to spend her summer like this.
This book was pretty short and the synopsis was vague, so I didn’t really know what to expect when I started it. But the supernatural aspect was pretty unique.
At the beginning it is noted that Allie is pretty structured, and definitely not looking for a boyfriend since she’s just gotten out of a relationship. But when she meets Levi, her protests are feeble at best and she agrees to go out with him rather quickly.
I’m not saying this was insta-love, exactly, but the relationship between Levi and Allie seemed to progress rather quickly. And then, once he revealed what he really was, it seemed to intensify. I know the book was short but I wish the relationship would have gone through a bit more development.
We get to know Allie somewhat, since the story is told through her first person perspective. But we hardly learn anything at all about Levi. Maybe in the next book of the series we will go deeper into his character, and also learn more about his history and the history of his family.
The end was kind of a conundrum for me…I saw some things coming, but I appreciated the way Allie dealt with them. Let’s just say if a guy had done to me what Levi had done to her, I’d probably be a lot more livid than she was though. I was very disappointed in Levi for his actions.
I flew through the book quickly and I’ll probably read the next one. This was a unique take on the supernatural, but I wish the plot itself had a little more originality.
