SummaryFreshman year of college is hard even when you’re not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Flight (Crescent Chronicles, #1) 
Summary:  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.

Review

I love the cover. It’s dark, mysterious and sexy in a way. I’ve never been to New Orleans, but in my mind, New Orleans is dark and kinda gothic. Reminds me of Anne Rice’s novels. I pronounce New Orleans as the capital of supernatural setting.

Allie and Levi are meant to be together. I’m not a huge fan of Levi, but then I start to understand and try to cope with his attitudes. His mysterious side is appealing, and I want to know more about him.
Allie is insecure, but I love her guts. She’s mature, willing to take a risk. Allie is likeable, whereas Jess is someone who can raise eyebrows.

Overall, I like the story. It’s unlike any other paranormal romance books. Once you read it, you’d be hunger for more. Can’t wait to read Focus and Found. Oh, one more thing, Flight is not about vampires or werewolves. Not gonna tell you what :))
