Book Review #19: Flight (The Crescent Chronicles #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy


Flight (The Crescent Chronicles #1)
by
Alyssa Rose Ivy

This one wasn't easy to read, in fact I could not finish it. The opening has me almost immediately disliking the MC because she complains about the color of a very pricey, very new vehicle given to her as a gift. Dialog was not exactly book like. More like a copy-paste social media insta chat. I didn't like the characters, not only were they very two dimensional but they were straight up... unlikable. Up until the point I stopped I did not see a redeeming quality in the MC, her bestie SC, or her parents. The father spoke and acted like a middle grade best friend instead of an adult and it wasn't in an intentional way. I kept wavering between "is the author trying to portray the dad as a horrible person" to "is the author making the dad an idiot" to "not sure if the author even knows which he is". The whole story read as a screenplay, saying very little about how the MC felt and reacted to the world around her and her circumstances. MC and SC are clearly described as years under the drinking age and are in New Orleans, but they go into a bar and buy their own drinks (or have many bought for them) and SC gets hammered. This wouldn't be the first book to have underage drinking, but it is the first that I have read that has the characters preform it in the open without at least giving the explanation of fake IDs or some little gimmick to get them their alcohol. I tried to skip ahead and see if I could power through, but the writing level remained pretty consistent from what I had seen. I got 9% through it.

All in all this read like a screenplay with unlikable characters.
