Flight has a very unique premise. In this post-apocalyptic world, a part
of the human race has mutated into a winged being, a harpy that feeds on
regular humans. The Elder Corp. tries to protect humans from the harpies by
using specialized human hunters to kill them.
Piper is the Corp’s premier, hard-as-nails, elite hunter who we find under
cover at Ichton. Tortured with guilt over what she believes is her
responsibility for her brother’s death, David, also a hunter, Piper struggles
to put her life back together while adapting to a whole new situation where
harpies are not killed and hunters face a weapons ban.
I really like Lindsay's unusual premise for Flight. She uses both
flashbacks and dreams as plot devices to advance her story and keeps a good
pace. As the story develops, we find out new twists at every turn, not the
least of which is her love, Asher. He is very protective of her and all the
while has to deal with issues as great if not greater than hers.
Lindsay's writing style is direct and sometimes gritty. And Piper is
quite hard on herself and others at the beginning but as she gets to know new
colleagues, she forms helpful alliances with them. I like that she grows
through the story.
you enjoy edgy stories with strong female leads, you will want to read Flight!
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to see how Piper and Asher
take things to the next level and what the fallout with Elder Corp will be.
