Flight from Mayhem (Fly by Night) - Yasmine Galenorn

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.
