My Thoughts:

I love this series. You can read my review for the first book in the series here

First is a short novella written in Levi's POV. It basically retells the story of how he met Allie but, in his words instead of hers.

This novella is not a necessary read but for fans of the series (like me) it is a fun and interesting addition.

I enjoyed reading about the gang again especially Allie and Levi. :-) They are some of my favorite characters and it seems like forever since we've seen them. :-(

I liked this novella but I would have liked it more if it had went just a little further and said what he was thinking when he put the ring on her finger. Maybe Alyssa will write another novella detailing that? One can hope!

If it involves the pterons and Alyssa writes it, I'll be reading it for sure! :-)

  1. I seriously need to read these! I know how much you love them. There really needs to be more time in the day!

  2. i know how interesting it can be to get the male character's point of view and when it's a from a series we love more than other it's a real treat^^

    i'm glad you got this one and i hope Alyssa will write some more to make you happy later ( and us too when we will have read this series and won't be behind anymore)

  3. The Crescent Chronicles is a new series for me. Since you love this series, I will definitely have to check it out.

  4. I'm with the others since you like them I'm going to try them. Do I start with Soar? Thank you

    1. Flight is the first book. :-) Followed by Focus and Found. I wouldn't read this novella without reading Flight. As for Soar, it is the first book in a spin off series. It's also worth reading but I'd read the crescent chronicles first. :-)
