Teaser Sentence(s): "Thanks, by the way." He grinned sheepishly and I was afraid to take the bait.
"The image. I was wondering what you slept in. Goodnight, Al."
My thoughts: First off, as someone who lives in the south and has traveled to New Orleans (or as we call it NOLA) many times, the descriptions in this book were spot on. Everything from the buildings, to the streets, to the humidity were perfectly portrayed so that even someone who has never been near here would get a great visual.
I honestly had never heard of this book until I saw a tour for the 3rd book in this series. I won a copy of Flight, and I am so glad I did. I really like this series so far. I love my paranormals with wings, and I was thrilled these weren't angels, but shifters. It was a new concept to me and I loved the idea. I really like Allie. She is mature for her age and gets pissed at all the right things. She doesn't let her infatuation with a guy get to her. When Levi screws up Allie takes off. It didn't end up too good for her, but at least she tried. Levi has a lot of making up to do in the next book if he wants to get back on my good side.
I do not want to call the ending a cliff-hanger, but it was abrupt. It definitely made me want to hurry and get the next two books in the series. I really want to know how Allie handles the situation Levi has put her in.
