Flight from Death

Fly by Night, #1

I first met Shimmer and Alex in Flight from Hell and loved them, but it was really Shimmer who caught my interest. She’s a water dragon who has been sentenced to Earthside for 5 years as a punishment and because of Camille’s association with Smoky I have always wanted to delve deeper into dragon society. Shimmer gives us a glimpse of how life it the Dragon Reaches was and it left me heart broken. They truly are a different society and anyone else would think them cruel and unreasonable. Shimmer has dealt with a lot in her life but I think it’s made her stronger and she’ll thrive in Earthside.

On her first official big case she, Alex and Ralph have to go to a little town to help out an old friend of Alex’s. Patrick is trying to open a B&B but fears his place is haunted because a whole lot of weird stuff has been going on. He hires Alex’s firm to take care of the ghost or ghosts who are making his life miserable. Little do they know that ghosts are not the only thing they will deal with on this journey and they are in for a big surprise as well as some new creatures that are very dangerous.

Flight from Death was a really great read and I’m glad I got to learn more about Shimmer. This is a wonderful addition to a new series and I hope there will be more to come.

Chai and Tonya were a couple new people that interested me along with Degoba. There were other characters that were introduced but these three really caught my attention and I hope to learn more about them as well. The plot was great, well written and clear. At no time was I confused about where the story was going or what the characters were facing. Alex and his team faced a lot of cr** and dealt with some mixed emotions but they worked together and did what they had to do. I highly, highly recommend this read.


Book Blurb for Flight from Death

From New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn comes an all-new series set in the realm of her Otherworld novels.

I’m Shimmer, a blue dragon shifter. Thanks to a mistake, I was exiled from the Dragon Reaches and sentenced to work for Alex Radcliffe, a vampire who owns the Fly by Night Magical Investigations Agency. Now, not only do I have to adapt to Earthside culture, but every time I turn around, somebody’s trying to kill us. And worse, Alex is as gorgeous as he is exasperating. But you know what they say: All’s fair in love and bounty hunting…

When an old friend of Alex contacts him about a haunting at the High Tide Bed & Breakfast in Port Townsend, Washington, we think we’re on a simple ghost hunt. But our investigation quickly transforms into a deadly fight as we uncover an eighty-year-old murder, a cursed house, and a dark force trapping the spirits within. To stop impending disaster we must break the curse and lay the angry spirits to rest.
