Review: Flight from Mayhem (Fly by Night #2) by Yasmine Galenorn

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 doppelganger—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.

The minute I read in the blurb for Flight from Mayhem I knew I was going to have to read this book. Vampires. Investigations. Friends in danger! Everything here a PNR addict could possibly want and then there is the icing on the cake…dragons! And did you see that cover. Oh yeah, happy dancing here.

I love Shimmer! Dragon shift raised as an orphan having no knowledge of who her parents are or why she was abandon, now she is learning to live in the human world. That makes for many layers with having her be badass as well as fragile and somewhat naïve. It made for a character not only did you want fighting by your side but you just want to give her a hug. Alex is quite the boyfriend material. Strong, sexy, in charge yet completely respectful to Shimmer’s upbringing to love her and not rush her. These two, while not perfect, were certainly made for each other. There’s also quite a few extras floating around that make this character mixture very appetizing. Ralph, Bette, Chai and Tonya are good friends and I thoroughly enjoyed their interactions. Cannot wait to learn more about them.

Now the whole plot revolves around serial killer stalking the elderly Fae of Seattle. As the blurb suggests it a sociopath who is also a doppelganger – let’s just wrap your mind around that one. The mystery as they solved that quagmire lured me in from the very beginning. No way did I ever figure it out until the surprise ending. Add to that were all the little sub-plots that were like little bonus stories for me. Salamanders on the loose, stalkers, a haunted house, and let’s not forget, an evil ex! Her name may be Glenda but she is far from a good witch. All this plots weave in and out of each other with a nice steady pace. You would think would be too much but instead made for the perfect mixture of excitement, humor, intrigue that made Flight from Mayhem pretty darn hard to put down.

I’m not going to lie and say this was a perfect read for me, but it was pretty darn close. The problem does not lie with the author or the book. Nope, it’s my fault. Flight from Mayhem is my first book in the Fly By Night series and just this taste has me wanting to start from the beginning. Yasmine Galenorn has created something stellar here and I’m wondering why I am just discovering her now. I’m most definitely bumping her into my ‘must read’ author bucket. Anybody who is into paranormal books is going to love this book!
