Girl meets boy, sparks fly but girl plays hard to get. Boy is intrigued, and pursues relentlessly, chipping at girl's walls. Oh Levi, you are so arrogant. Good looking and you know it. Strutting your stuff; showing off those pecs, handsome face, and those wings. I mean, who could resist a good, strong pair of wings? But eventually the lure is too much for girl, and she gives in to the sparks. (She couldn't resist. I don't blame her.) As stubborn as Allie is and as self controlled as she thinks she is, the pull towards Levi is too strong. And the allure of this other world she is introduced to... how can a girl say no to that? But Allie definitely bit off more than she can chew.... or did Levi? Typical YA novel, but with a very interesting plot with supernatural creatures that are quite original from what I have read. Though I wanted a lot more information on the Pterons, seeing as this is the first of a series, I am sure my thirst for more knowledge will be satisfied in upcoming novels (I hope). Alyssa Rose Ivy introduces some very interesting and colorful characters, who are full bodied and believable. You find yourself immersed in intrigue and drama that may be all too familiar when reminiscing of youthful (or adult!) mistakes or impulses, combined with great action and the magic of the paranormal element of the story line. The story being located in New Orleans held a little magic all of its own. New Orleans is bewitching to me, and the writer did a great job of writing in enough elements to always remind you where these characters are. Some of the locations described, even the food, drink and music in the background made the story even more spellbinding and intriguing. There wasn't one dull moment in this novel, from start to finish. It kept my interest completely throughout. It ended quite abruptly, which led me to scratch my head in confusion, confirm the word/page count, and then wallow in the feeling of disappointment that it was, indeed, finished.... for now! Needless to say I look forward to the second installment of the series with much anticipation.

Flight was thrilling, unpredictable, radiating with tension of all kinds, and that includes a romance that I cannot wait to read more about in the next book. I really enjoyed reading this story from Allie's POV; you really understand her background, why she moved to New Orleans for the summer, before her first year at Princeton. You also get a sense of her feisty like personality, and it definitely draws a hot college senior, Levi. He, was...extremely WELL Written!! I really like him, and he's definitely a ladies man, but for some reason, Allie has caught his eye, and he's actually pretty persistent to wanting to be with her, even though he practically gets turned down by Allie on a few occasions. Yes, this is a very interesting Romance, and I believe the cover gives a good indication for how their steamy like scenes are like! You just got to read on your own and find out where! So...there's definitely an undeniable romance but...there's a fantasy element to this story, and Levi introduces Allie to something supernatural, of which she never knew could exist, but just how far can she go before turning the other way, and possibly turning from Levi? I just want to start out and say this is absolutely a wonderful New Adult Novel. It's a perfect story for this genre. There is the sense of independence, learning/making mistakes and a whole lot more that contributes to this great genre. I feel that the writing was purely excellent including the scenes, dialogue, and the setting as you just get a feel of what New Orleans is like, and what happens there on a daily basis, and that is one city I would definitely love to visit! This is my first time reading Ivy's work, and I now just can't wait to read more of her awesome stories, as she is a wonderful writer, and storyteller! All in all, this was an addictive read and I really can't wait to read the next book in the Chronicles, because, ahh you'll see when you read it; you're just going to want to read more, after you read the last page! 4.5/5

I am now a huge fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy!!! I couldn't say a bad thing about this book:) I read it from beginning to end in one sitting and loved it so much! I really enjoyed the characters in this story. They were so diverse, yet meshed so well together. Levi was the perfect bad boy and Jess was so boy crazy. Allie had sworn off boys, but Levi wouldn't take no for an answer. I am chomping at the bit to get to read the sequel, Focus that will be out early 2013. I am also going to go right out and check out Alyssa Rose Ivy's other series and any other books of hers I can get my hands on! This review is short and sweet because I really don't have anything to say other than this book rocked my socks off! I recommend it to New Adults and older YA. This book deserves five glittery stars since it is so amazing and all:)

3.5 stars Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It took longer than I expected to read but I did read it every free chance I had.  This was an interesting story. We meet Allie while she is in New Orleans working at her father's hotel. The first day she arrives, she meets Levi. We can all guess what happens.  I liked Allie's character for the most part. She was strong and didn't really put up with lines and other crap from guys. She could hold her own. Allie's sarcasm, wit, and character really struck me. She was a good character. Did she act like a typical teen girl sometimes? Yes, but that was okay. Levi was awfully sure of himself. He was very presumptuous and arrogant. Levi rubbed me the wrong way throughout this book. However, that was his character and it worked. He and his crew were a typical "frat boy"-type group but with a much more interesting background.  There was romance, action, and the inevitable cocky-guy screw up. Throw in the fact that Levi is a Pteron, and part of the supernatural society that Allie did not know existed, and you have a good read. I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in The Crescent Chronicles series, Focus. Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book. It was a good, paranormal YA read. Will I read it again: I will not.

**SPOILER** Review on entire trilogy: The series was very good. At first it was a little slow, but then it picks up. However I did not like the back and forth between Levi and Allie. I felt like a couple of times would have been  okay, but not for the entire series. Also I felt the whole thing with Toby was odd, one minute Toby refuses  to live without Allie, the next he sees she is sick and BAM! He lets her go to make her own choice? Too fast.

Ok, let me make this clear, I am team Levi all the way even after what happened. There I got that out. This was such addicting YA book. Although it lays on the line of older YA but clean enough to keep the YA title. The story idea alone was so creative that it kept me intrigued. I wished we could have learned a bit more about the species and a little less of Allie's man troubles. That is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 Stars. I get that Allie had it rough in previous relationship but her man hating attitude got to be tiring after a while. I liked that Allie played a feisty role, but too bad her side kick Jess didn't stick around longer. Levi is a definite drool worthy character worth following around like a puppy dog. The support characters were entertaining and had an appeal to them that kept your interest. The descriptions of the paranormal creatures were good and the relationships between the different species was interesting. I anxiously await the next book Focus.

I almost didn't bother finishing this book. Some if it was too unbelievable and happened too fast. SPOILER ALERT!!!!! Allie was not the strong female lead i was hoping for and the romance between her and Levi in the first few chapters wasn't there. I kept thinking she would go for Owen. Then this jerk (Levi) tells you he is a crow and you cant wait to fly again? Everything was too easily introduced. Levi should have had to save her life and thats how he revealed his powers. There was no mystery at all. The writer just tells you everything without suspense. That being said the crow idea is original though im not sure how they are more superior than mountain lions and wolves but whatever.

*** AUDIO BOOK REVIEW *** This is the supernatural series I have been looking for. It took me in right away. Allie is about to start college. She works at her dad's hotel in New Orleans for the summer. She has no idea how this city and the mysterious boy she meets will change her life. Before she knows it she is thrust into the underground supernatural world she had no idea existed. She starts a romance with the mysterious boy, Levi. Turns out he is more than a college student. He is actual a prince and set to be king soon. Allie has been chosen as his queen and she has to decide what she wants for her future. This was such a great story. And it's just the beginning. Cliffhanger alert. I couldn't start the next book fast enough. I felt for Allie. Levi took control of her future but I couldn't hate him. I couldn't wait to see what she did next. I can't suggest the start of this series enough. Paranormal romance fans, this is a must read.

It took me awhile to get into the book but I am happy I kept reading. The climax of the book I think could have been a bit more climactic but it ended well and I will read the next book to keep up with Allie and Levi.

It made me start at chapter six!?! Can someone tell me why it did that because it just starts off Allie and Levi having coffee. Where is the beginning of the book. I am so confused. Is it supposed to be like that. Is it just me that it made me start at chapter six.

The book sounded somewhat like a knock off of some others I've read but only on certain pages. The over all idea is new and attentive. I loved the way it ended, just like life one minute you're there and the next you're finished.

I enjoyed the book but it was a little fast paced for me the book had amazing key elements but the book I thought was cut of too short. A little older in the YA but would definitely give to my 13 year old daughter she loves this kind of stuff like I do so that is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5

This book was fairly well written, but I’m getting kind of tired of reading these stories about what are essentially abusive relationships where the girl just can’t resist falling for an obvious sociopath. There’s a huge difference between a strong man and a psychotic man, I’m sorry but the guy in this book was the latter and the fact that this unhealthy relationship is being romanticized is just sad.

Weird build up. Not what I expected, but it was decent. My only real problem is the promotion of under age drinking... Don't get me wrong I did it myself, but this is just ridiculous. They don't even get carded. The over all story was typical and bearable so I only took off half a star. The other 1.5 is above "the under age drinking".
