Overview

New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn presents the second Fly by Night novel, set in the realm of the Otherworld.
 
I'm Shimmer, a blue dragon shifter. Thanks to a mistake, I was exiled from the Dragon Reaches and sentenced to work for gorgeous, exasperating Alex Radcliffe, a vampire who owns the Fly by Night Magical Investigations Agency. Every time I turn around, somebody's trying to kill us. But you know what they say: All's fair in love and bounty hunting...
 
A serial killer is stalking the elderly Fae of Seattle, draining their bank accounts before brutally murdering them. When Chase Johnson asks for our help, Alex and I discover that the sociopath is also a shifter—able to change shape to match his victim's deepest desires. Our friend and colleague Bette volunteers to act as bait, but the plan goes dangerously awry. Now, unless we find her first, she's about to face her worst nightmare.

Galenorn delivers suspense, myth, and stunningly relatable characters in her second Fly by Night paranormal contemporary (after Flight from Death), which continues the saga of blue dragon shape-shifter Shimmer and her coworkers at the Fly by Night Magical Investigations Agency. Shimmer has finally begun dating Alex, her boss. She’s getting the hang of being in Seattle rather than her home realm, the Dragon Reaches, and settling in to her desolate, haunted neighborhood, the only place she can afford to live. As if the spirits in the neighborhood aren’t enough to complicate her life, the agency has a new case: someone is killing elderly fae, and one of Shimmer’s dearest friends could be the next victim. There are a lot of vampire, fae, and shifter identities to keep track of, but each character is someone the reader can imagine befriending. The suspense builds, layer by layer, as the central mystery is addressed and a wide variety of smaller, more personal issues are teased out, leaving readers with an almost desperate need to know what happens next. Each detail seems specifically chosen to enhance immersion into a beautiful, complicated setting. Agent: Meredith Bernstein, Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency. (Aug.)

I really don't remember the last time I read a book so fast. Oh wait, it was the first book in this series, and anything else by Yasmine Galenorn! Such a fun read, and as soon as I finished the last page, I flipped back to the front to begin again.

This series is Amazing! All of Yasmine's books are. She creates a world that is so real, that I forget about My real world while reading! I love how she bridges her series for her long term fans & yet if your a First time reader you can follow the plot without missing anything. Yasmine deserves Fame, I drop everything I'm reading for her books and look forward to her next release!

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. Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I loved the first book in this new series and waited very impatiently for this second novel. Sadly, I was very disappointed with Flight from Mayhem. My disappointments with this novel are: 1.) None of the questions from the previous book about Shimmer's family, heritage, past etc were answered. 2.) The story was actually only 270 pages. 3.) The tittle was misleading. 4.) The impracticality of her situation with her boss bugs me...doesn't she want to have children some day? However, I love Yasmine Galenorn's books and look forward to the next novel in this series. I hope it is better than those one
