Product Description

The first rule of survival in the Underground: When you’re outside, keep your eyes on the skies. Ace Harpy Hunter Piper Madden is used to danger, but the death of her brother slams the brakes on her high-torque lifestyle and leaves her broken and confused.

On the run from the dictating Elder Corporation, she’s eventually found in the quiet undergound city of Ichton and asked to work for the Corp on contract to quell a new and frightening Harpy threat.

Enter the discovery of horrifying Corporation secrets, Harpy attacks, and a new friendship with the strange Asher, and Piper’s days become anything but boring.

Then, a chance encounter leaves Piper privy to a dangerous secret, and as she and Asher team up in an effort to unravel the truth, the secrets they uncover beneath the ancient walls of the dead city will spark their world into a grand-scale war.

I received a copy of this book as part of the GoodReads Giveaway. I received this book awhile ago. The author sent me a signed and personalized book. I like that.

I felt the author did a great job in developing the character of the lead heroine(Piper) of the story. I felt a real emotional investment in her and was concerned about what would happen to her. The other characters were developed enough to explain their actions and reactions in the story. There was plenty of action and there could have been more. There could have been more hunting and fight scenes, but I felt the author was trying to keep the plot moving based on the character of Piper. All the story was from her point of view.

The one thing I that I noticed about this story was the similarity to all the vampire books out there. Okay, I have not read that many vampire books, the plot was similar, girl loves Harpy, Harpy loves girl, they can't be together according to the rules of society.

The story is not just a love story. There is the intrigue of who can Piper trust. Can she trust the Corp? the Harpy? her friends? This part will keep you guessing as to what the truth is and who is telling it.

The story did not have the happy fairy tale ending that you were hoping for the lead character. It ended with enough unfinished business to start a sequel.

Regardless of whether there is more to the story, there is a complete story here that will keep you entertained. I fould the book to eay to read and it kept me reading. A good summer read.

I enjoyed the book. Well Done

HASH(0x97ebebe8) out of 5 stars Unique Read April 17 2013
By Ava and Brianna @ Always Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'd like to thank the author, Lindsay Leggett, for giving a copy of this book in exchange for my review.

I thought this book was pretty interesting. I really liked the characters, and the world that the author invented was pretty original, what with the combination of paranormal and dystopian elements. These two genres mixed pretty seamlessly with romance and mystery to create a fairly unique and interesting book.

I really liked the main character, Piper. She was strong, smart, and witty. I didn't get annoyed at her very often, although I had a few things figured out by the time she came around to the right conclusions. She went through some really traumatic events, but she's not completely broken, and when things affect her and make her weak, it's later made clear why they do. I'm happy to say that I never once thought she made a poor decision, and that is a very rare thing in books.

Asher was very intriguing, as well. At first he seems like a typical male lead, even though he's really anything but. He's confident, but he's also very sweet, and he's fighting against practically the whole world just to be happy. He's a very sympathetic character, and I really liked him. I thought he and Piper went quite well together.

As for the side characters, I thought Sandy and Grier were great, and I loved the support that Shelley gave to Piper, as her best friend. Myra is an intriguing character, since it still isn't clear exactly what side she is on, so I definitely give the author credit for successfully writing a character who isn't all black and white.

The plot itself was interesting. The book starts off right in the middle of the action, and then goes into a flashback. This means that the whole time I was reading, I wanted to know how the beginning of the book happened, so there was a lot of tension. I did guess a few of the twists, and I found the main villain a bit one-dimensional at times, however it can be understood why mostly everyone in the book acts the way they do, and that shows great skill from the author. I also liked the dystopian aspect, with the big corporation basically being the government, and people living underground for their own protection. Leggett mixed that in seamlessly with angel-like harpies to create a book that blends multiple genres fairly well, and it helped make the story more intriguing.

In short, I'm happy I read this book. It was a good story, with many different elements coming together to make it wholly unique. I really liked Piper and Ash, and even though this book didn't really get going until the halfway mark, I can't wait to see what happens next. The sequel is going to be very, very good. ~Brianna
HASH(0x97ebec3c) out of 5 stars A review of Flight from: Head In The Clouds; A YA Book Review Blog Dec 15 2013
By S.Huston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Flight takes place in a world polluted and unlivable due to radiation. Humans are living underground, or if they are made of money, in zones where the air is clean. Our MC is Piper Madden, she was born with a type of blood/gene that only Hunters have. Hunters are given the job to track down Harpies and kill them. Harpies are creatures who have evolved over the years and feed on humans.

The story starts off with the Prologue telling us that Piper and her love interest, Asher, are trapped in a burning room. We don't know what's going on other than they've been given something that will cause them to forget each other and they know it's happening. When chapter one begins it's clear that Piper has no memory of Asher, even when she runs into him on the street they have no memories of each other. The rest of the time we spend playing catch up with Piper as she's given one crazy revelation after another. Nothing is as it seems!

I have to admit the book started off a little confusing and slow for me but by halfway through I had found my groove and rolled right on through to the end. I had never read a book about Harpies so the idea was original to me and I thought Lindsay did a good job of developing them. The characters are well developed and their interactions come across as believable. Asher is smoking hot and has the whole bad boy exterior with a mushy sensitive center. You can feel the chemistry between him and Piper and it kills me that no one will leave them alone so they can be with each other!

Although I liked the book there was some stuff that bothered me. I didn't really know until the end of the book whether it was taking place in the present or in the past. At the end of the prologue Piper makes it seem like she's going to start telling us the story from the beginning (meaning before the fire and what led up to them being there) but as I continued reading there were things that made me think it was happening in the present. Then there was the whole fact that Piper knew she couldn't remember things from before her brothers death, but she NEVER questioned it! I mean we don't even realize that she doesn't remember anything until about halfway through the book. When she admits her lack of memory that's when things start to really roll and she starts to suspect something isn't right.

Overall though the book was a good read and I have high hopes for the second installment.
HASH(0x97ebef18) out of 5 stars The Book Is Epic Aug. 31 2013
By Christianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*ARC provided by author for honest review*

Guys, this book was epic. As epic as your favorite video game or your favorite adventure movie. In fact that whole time I was reading it I was thinking "this would be an awesome comic book." It just has that vibe to it. But in all honesty I don't really like to read comic books and so this novel was the perfect compromise for me! Leggett has created a world with heavy layers of intrigue that will leave you wondering what the hell is going on, while giving you enough info to keep you interested.

Have you ever read a book about Harpys? Yeah, me either, but now that I've got a taste, I'm hooked! Heck, Harpys should be the new vampires if you ask me. Leggett's version of these winged human/creator things is awesome. They are creepy and dangerous and flesh eating. What more could you want from a threat to your well being?

Not only were the Harpys awesome, but so was the world building. Ichton was a city that you could feel and touch and taste. It was dark and suffocating in ways that were easy to imagine. And the Corp building was just as strange. And when you left the dome of the underground, the world outside kept you on edge as well. In a way it was those things that gave it the video game feel that I came to love! The details on how The Corp worked were also on their A game.

But on top of video game like world building and Harpys, we also get some awesome, strong, kick ass characters that you can't help but root for. Sure you don't know who to trust half the time, but these people will keep you on your toes!

Piper is a brilliant narrator for this story. She's got so much going on in her head, as well as a really strong personality. On the other hand she's completely broken after the loss of her brother. It's her interactions with the people around her that really make you take note of who she is. There's new partners, old friends and old flames as well as mysterious dark haired boys! The whole cast that surrounds Piper are fantastic. I'm not going to tell you much about them, because I think that it's better to go in and watch her meet them and reconnect with them like I did. But trust me, they are all wonderful.

Romance has it's place in the story as well, but what I loved about this one is that it doesn't take away from the story in any way, shape or form. It actually adds to every little thing about the book! It's a well rounded, character driven romance that totally works.

So, what's the final verdict? You need to read this one. It's got so many awesome things going for it, and it delivers on each and every one of those things! This is another Indie that has blown me out of the water!

I've never read a book where Harpies were responsible for torments of the present world after an apocalypse caused by nuclear war and radiation. Piper is a tough and troubled character but sometimes she just acts too teenager-y for me. She's supposed to be this bad ass hunter but she blushes when a class full of people turns their eyes on her or gets confused when a guy flirts one second and then warns her to keep her distance from him the next. Those are classic situations that you find in YA books but since she's an adult and a hunter I expected her to react accordingly and not like a high school girl with a crush and low self-esteem issues. One thing that struck me straight away is how could they not find her for a year when she was living with her best friend she knew from childhood? Wouldn't they stake out all the people she knew? Especially someone this close to her.

Grier was weird. She started off as a tough cookie not making it easy for Piper but then suddenly she changes her mind and starts getting personal and turns into a friend. Not to mention I knew she and Sandy were together when Sandy wouldn't let Piper in when she came over to pick up Tens and then got busted by the security at Corp. How could anyone not make that connection?

Asher is your typical bad boy that everyone warns Piper to stay away from. But you know, what would be the fun in that. We know from the prologue that they end up together so there's no mystery to that as well as what he is. I almost wish the prologue wouldn't give so much away as it killed suspense somewhat. What had me chuckling is his withdrawal from drugs. He got a little pale so he lied down and then he was fine. If only it would be that simple.

Suddenly everything unravels and I feel kind of cheated as it all happened too quickly. They remember and then all shit breaks loose with Gabriel and then Rupert comes in and then she's on trial. What? Everything that happened was chopped off without any build up and then it's over.

This was an intriguing story but some expects of it weren't adding up and were confusing to me. And I hate it when I figure things out before the antagonist does and when I ask questions she doesn't. But I have to give it up to the author for an original storyline.
HASH(0x97ebecfc) out of 5 stars Great Indie Read! June 24 2013
By Kelley (Oh, the Books!) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I do tend to approach indie / self-published books with a bit of trepidation, but my fears were not manifested with Flight -- thank goodness! What I got was a fun, vivid story. I loved how visual this book was, and how clearly I was able to picture the people and the surroundings. It was so much fun reading about how Piper was a badass with fighting, weaponry, and harpy hunting!

I enjoyed the way that many of the relationships grew, changed, or were just further explained as the story went on. I liked Piper as a person and as a character. Some of the plot "surprises" were pretty predictable, in my opinion, but that didn't really stop me from enjoying the story. And while I liked this book, there were a few things that I wanted more of:

1. I wanted a lot more explanation of how they came to be in the current situation. (What made the air above ground unbreatheable?)
2. I wanted to know the origin of the harpies! Where did they come from? How were they created? (They're different from other harpies I've seen in games and stuff.)
3. I wanted more story in general. I think it was on the short side.

So, I'm hoping that these things will be rectified with the second book in the series. In any case, this was quite an enjoyable read, and I definitely recommend it!
