My Review:
I absolutely love love love the idea behind Flight! Finally, a paranormal plot that is original and unique. Alyssa Rose Ivy took the paranormal romance formula and twisted it around to be new and exciting. I loved her spin on the different shifters. The writing is fast paced and fun to read and never let's you become bored or uninterested.
I could have been completely in love with Flight if not for two problems I had. First, the ending. This book ended so abruptly that I had to go searching on the internet to make sure I wasn't missing part of the book. The second problem for me was the romance part of Flight. I felt like there was no build up to the falling in love between Allie and Levi. I wanted to have more of a spark and passion and I don't know....more.
Once Levi stopped acting like such a player I really started to like him, and his friend Owen was totally awesome. I'm really hoping for more Owen in the next book. For some reason though I had a really hard time connecting to Allie. I felt like she was cold and distant throughout most of the book and I had a hard time seeing why Levi developed such intense feelings for her.

Plot: Fresh new idea
Characters: Some were great others were meh
Writing: Easy to get caught up in
Ending: UGH! I really hated where this book ended, it didn't feel like an ending
Mature Content: There is mentions of drinking and and some non graphic sexy times
Overall: I liked Flight and I will definitely be checking out book 2 (Focus, coming January 2013) to find out what will happen with Levi and Allie and the entire New Orleans paranormal community.
Recommendation: If you are a fan of paranormal and you want something different then you should definitely check out Flight. Even though I felt like this book wasn't perfect it was still worth reading.
