Flight from Mayhem by Yasmine Galenorn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Yasmine Galenorn’s FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM is a captivating and mysterious urban fantasy. Blue dragon shifter, Shimmer, and friends, try to apprehend a serial killer who is murdering elderly Fae in Seattle. This contemporary PNR/urban fantasy takes place in Washington State. It is suitable for adult audiences.
This is the first book that I have read by Yasmine Galenorn. She is one of those authors whose name I keep seeing on covers and thinking, that book looks really good; I need to read it. I’m glad I finally read one of her novels. She is an excellent writer. She is creative. She does a wonderful job with her character development and plot. I will definitely be better about picking up her books from this day forward.
I really like shimmer. I love that she is a blue/water dragon. I have a salt water fish tank built into a wall in my house that is my baby, so I felt that I related to her. Plus, I’m a certified scuba diver, so I get her loving to swim in the water. I enjoyed her encounter with the Orca whale. I felt bad for her childhood and was happy that she ended up in a better place with friends she can count on and trust.
I like Alex Radcliffe relationship with Shimmer. He is a good boss and boyfriend to her. Alex’s ex-girlfriend Glenda is a piece of work. She is unstable and evil. She really had Alex fooled.
I like Ralph. He is brilliant. I love his Halo design: what a great product. I felt bad for his predicament and am interested in finding out how that turns out.
Every time I read about Mary Smith, the ghost, my arm hairs literally stood on end, and I felt crept out. Of course, it probably didn’t help that I was reading in a really dark room, the only light coming from my eReader. At least, I was in the right setting. Mary’s story was fascinating. I like how it tied in Tonya.
FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM was very mysterious and well-thought out. Fly by Night Magical Investigations had a number of interesting cases throughout this story. There was so much going on that it held me captivated. Washington is one of my favorite states, so I enjoyed that the story took place there. It made it easy for me to visualize. This is an entertaining series that I will continue to follow.
