The Crescent Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Published September 25, 2013 by bookbesties

Flight-Sometimes you just have to take flight.
A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.
Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

Focus– Freshman year of college is hard even when you’re not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.
Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she’s in far too deep to turn back.

Found– Levi might be hot, strong, and have a cool set of wings, but it’s not enough to make up for keeping Allie in the dark.
Allie’s tired of being left with more questions than answers. She’s tired of loving a guy who refuses to level with her. Most of all, she’s tired of her life spinning out of control.
Desperate to save Jess no matter the personal cost, Allie has to face the possibility that the only one she can trust is herself.

I saw this book on the .99 cent list and thought it sounded I wasn’t prepared to want to read the rest of the series. While I did have some serious reservations while reading the first book I still became obsessed with them! I read all three in three days.

The first book in the series is Flight, where we find Allie who has just moved from NY to New Orleans. She is working at her dad’s hotel and meets, of course a guy, cue epic romance! I had really serious reservations about  this first book, I did not like this particular writing style, I was reading the characters and felt their actions to things were just non-believable. I found myself saying, ‘Well that’s stupid even in a fictional world’, but still I kept reading. I  did enjoy the originality of the story line and found myself ordering the next two in the series.

Focus is the second book and I found this one to be much better written than the first. The story and plot lines were better and it got me wrapped up so much more than the first. I loved the major conflict of the two main characters and the writing was much stronger. I thought the characters were much more fleshed out than the first and found myself actually liking them much more. I was excited to find out what happened next.

The last book in the trilogy is Found and again with this one it was much better written and had a better overall feel to it. For the series in a whole I would like to have seen more on the supernatural side of it and less the human side. I am a sucker for the paranormal and a good para-romance always gets me. This book is what I like to call a sleeper, because I could see this sneaking up the charts on amazon and goodreads as being a really great paranormal read. It was a quick and easy read and I am definitely going to see what other books Alyssa Rose Ivy has that I can sink my teeth into.

4 out of 5 stars
