Review: Allied in Flight (Through The Veil #2) by Christi Snow

A rescue gone wrong.

It was supposed to be simple. Four members from the Western States planned to sneak into the Eastern States to free four condemned Others. But when they arrived at the experimental labs where the Others were being held, it was under attack from Rebel forces.

Griff Hughes had one job...

He had to find Shar, a wounded hawk shifter. But in the ensuing chaos, he became a captive instead of a rescuer. Three days later he awakens in his own cage, alone. But during the nights, he’s not alone. An alluring redhead with a siren’s call visits his dreams, and his resistance is breaking down.

Shar McIntire is just trying to survive.

After three years in captivity, Shar has one goal...keep her and her sister alive. To do so means cooperating with the evil doctors who want her to seduce and manipulate Griff. She likes and is drawn to the man with the strange chocolate wings, but she can’t let that attraction distract her. Her sister’s fate is in her hands.

In the last eighteen years, life hasn’t been easy for anyone.

The WS and the ES have been separate entities, but once the Veil was crossed, things began to evolve. It’s a new world, but that doesn’t mean it's going to get any easier anytime soon.

I really need to thank author Christi Snow for providing a glossary of terms used in this series. Since Allied in Flight picks up exactly where the first book ended it came in very handy as a refresher of what everything is. No need for the author to bore the reader rehashing the world building that already happened in the first book. Read the glossary, BOOM! All caught up and ready to go.

 

I have a confession to make. When we first met Griff in the first book, I didn’t like him. Even when he kind of redeemed him by changing his attitude I still was very Meh! about him. Then I found out he was to be the leading male character in the Allied in Flight… Really?! I wasn’t thrilled to say the least but I was committed to reading the series so I forged ahead. I’m here to say I was completely wrong about him. His gruff harsh side was just a cover for his abandonment issues, protecting his heart from getting hurt…again. Now Shar I liked from the very start. All the horrendous things she’s had to endure. Shivers!

 

I really enjoyed the multiple layers that are involved in this book. First, you have a love story between Griff and Shar. It’s not all smooth sailing with these two and I do love a rocky boat. Next up, plenty of intrigue. Escaping where they are held, the extreme politics in the ES and who really is the good guys. Then there is the whole apocalyptic side. I get the feeling that is going to be one crazy mystery that is will be revealed in layers throughout the series. I really can’t wait to find out more about the Veil and what caused the difference between ES and WS. And did someone mention there are more Veils?! However, I found the best part about the book was the ending. Yes, Griff and Shar get their HEA, but, it wasn’t a nice neat clean one. This is a harsh new world that they are attempting to repair. You can’t have a HEA tied up in a pretty bow. You need one that compliments the story and I’m happy to say, that’s what the author delivered. Now for the hard part, waiting for the next book to come out.
