On the run from the dictating Elder Corporation, she’s eventually found in the quiet undergound city of Ichton and asked to work for the Corp on contract to quell a new and frightening Harpy threat.
Enter the discovery of horrifying Corporation secrets, Harpy attacks, and a new friendship with the strange Asher, and Piper’s days become anything but boring.
Then, a chance encounter leaves Piper privy to a dangerous secret, and as she and Asher team up in an effort to unravel the truth, the secrets they uncover beneath the ancient walls of the dead city will spark their world into a grand-scale war.
I downloaded this book and was hooked from the first page. Piper is a very intriguing character. She is flawed but strong. I have gotten annoyed with many heroines because the author tells us that she is strong every other page, yet her actions prove otherwise. So the fact that Piper was actually a strong lead and it was her ACTIONS that showed this was refreshing in the best way.
The world Lindsay built was phenomenal and easy to follow but best of all it was not bogged down with too much exposition.
I felt so strongly about this story that I am not only begging for the sequel but I gifted it to a couple friends. I would say this is an absolute must read. For ninety-nine cents it is worth every penny and then some.
Guys, this book was epic. As epic as your favorite video game or your favorite adventure movie. In fact that whole time I was reading it I was thinking "this would be an awesome comic book." It just has that vibe to it. But in all honesty I don't really like to read comic books and so this novel was the perfect compromise for me! Leggett has created a world with heavy layers of intrigue that will leave you wondering what the hell is going on, while giving you enough info to keep you interested.
So, what's the final verdict? You need to read this one. It's got so many awesome things going for it, and it delivers on each and every one of those things! This is another Indie that has blown me out of the water!
I really like the harpy-hunter scenario which is very unique. And Lindsay has a direct writing style that brings you right into her characters' thoughts and feelings.
If you like unique novels and edgy characters and writing, you will really enjoy reading Flight!
