ARC Review ~ Focus by Alyssa Rose Ivy
This is the second book in the Crescent Chronicles series.
You can add it to your Goodreads shelf.
It was expected to be released on the 31st but you can get it now!
Amazon or Smashwords
Here's the Blurb:
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.
If you haven't started this series yet, and I question your judgement if you haven't, then you should start with Flight (book one). It was an awesome start to this new series about a different type of shifter called pterons. You can see my thoughts about it and an interview that I had with Alyssa here.
In the first book Allie meets Levi while she is on summer vacation. She goes to New Orleons to spend some time with her dad and help work at his hotel. One thing leads to another and she finds herself facing the fact that supernatural creatures do exist. She gets thrust into a world that might just be dangerous to her health.
It was so awesome. I loved that book and if you like mature YA PNR you would too!
You can find out more about Flight from it's Goodreads page.
Focus picks up pretty much where Flight left off. Allie is still angry with Levi (and rightfully so). Hailey and Allie are starting college together. Allie is still trying to figure out what she should make of her situation. She does a lot of deliberating in this book. I mostly agree with her and I am glad that she doesn't immediately forgive Levi.
Levi is very sweet but I can't help but feel that he is still keeping secrets from her. Especially towards the end of the book.
I have a feeling that Allie is going to get herself in a lot of trouble in the next book.
This book was phenomenal! I loved it just as much as Flight.
It had action, romance, fun, some danger, snarky comments, likable characters (mostly) and some twists and turns to keep you on your toes!
I strongly suggest digging into this series if you are a fan of the supernatural. It soars above expectations!
Thank you Alyssa for gifting me with an ARC. :-) I absolutely Loved it.
These are my honest thoughts regarding Focus and I was not paid, cohorsed, or bribed in any way.
