Mini-Review: Found by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Check out my review of Flight (The Crescent Chronicles #1) Check out my review of Focus (The Crescent Chronicles #2) Found is the final installment in The Crescent Chronicles, and I am so sad to see this series coming to an end! But it went out with a bang—everything culminates in this last thrilling installment. Toby has Jess as a hostage and Allie is trying to figure out just how important she is in the scheme of Pteron politics. There was a ton of action in this novel, and at times, my heart was absolutely pounding. It was definitely an interesting read that kept me hooked from page one to the very last page. Allie was particularly independent in this novel, and I liked seeing that. She took matters into her own hands, especially because things seemed to revolve around her. She was selfless and brave and risked a lot to get her friend to safety. I felt like she was truly acting as the Queen she would become. The romance between Allie and Levi was as swoony as always—that is, when they weren’t arguing. Regardless, they are one of my favorite couples of all time, so I hope that they end up making cameo appearances in the spin off series, The Empire Chronicles. It is seriously heartbreaking to let them go. Found was an amazing close to an absolutely […]

Review: Focus by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Check out my review of Flight (The Crescent Chronicles #1) Favorite Quote(s): “‘Well, I love you.’ It was the third time he’d said the words, and although he said them casually, I could tell by the intensity of his gaze that he desperately wanted me to say them back to him. I’d said the words to a boy before. I’d said them to Toby so many times that they became nothing more than a greeting. Still, admitting my feelings to Levi was a big step, and I knew it was time to take it. ‘I love you, too.’ His eyes lit up. ‘I’m glad you’ve finally realized it.’” “‘Probation? That’s a new one. That could make for some interesting role play.’ His mischievous expression put me at ease. We might have been in a weird place, but he was still Levi.” Favorite Character: Levi… First Line: “‘All right, I think that’s everything.’” My Musings: Focus takes place a few weeks after Flight ended, with Allie and Hailey starting their freshman year at Tulane. Allie and Levi, of course, aren’t on the best terms due to the events at the end of Flight. However, you can still see that there is some major chemistry between the two of them, no matter how much Allie tries to fight it. In this novel, we see even more into the world of Pterons, now that Allie […]

Review: Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Favorite Quote(s):  “‘Have you ever felt like your life was just a series of mistakes?’ ‘Sure I have. I think that’s what we call growing up. But sweetie, we aren’t defined by the mistakes we make, but by what we learn from those mistakes and how we move on.’” “Mom’s face turned to stone. ‘Do you mean to tell me you weren’t aware that Jess left weeks ago? You have no idea of this when you left our daughter alone in a hotel suite on Bourbon Street of all places and with Casanova over there?’ Mom pointed to Levi who smirked.” Favorite Character: Allie. First Line: “I’d sworn off men, or really boys, because those were the only types of males I tended to attract.” My Musings: Flight was a novel that I’ve had for about a year now, but have never had the time to actually enjoy. With winter break, I was finally able to hunker down and pull it out. It had a very unique premise, and I was in the mood for some paranormal goodness. “‘We’re Pterons,’ Hailey said gently. ‘Pterons?’ I asked, repeating the unfamiliar word. ‘We’re shifters, Allie,’ Levi said almost as gently as Hailey.” Paranormal goodness is what I got in full. Alyssa created her own paranormal world. From seeing the series’ covers, especially Found, I was expecting a novel about angels or fallen angels. Instead, […]
