Flight Of Fancy by Cherie Noel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Price: FREE on All Romance E-Books
In a post-apocalyptic world where mankind has been inalterably changed, Cam leaves his home to find the elixir that will allow his change into homo avius, a man with wings, so that he might spread stories across the world. But scientists’ darkest accident, the cruel and cannibalistic Ravineux stand in Cam’s way. The world is not entirely without friendly company, though. As Cam meets a strange hunter, he finds himself inexorably attracted to the man. Seth, pleasure giver of his people, is entranced by this young man who would give himself so easily. With the belief that Cam is his mate, he goes forth to rescue him from mortal danger and help him find the elixir so he might become his true form and fly at last.
I loved Flight of Fancy. In a short time, this book built a rich and exciting world which I felt fully immersed in. I couldn’t believe how much action, world-building and romance was present in this story. It was a real page-turner for me. Noel makes use of every word to enrich world-building, character development or plot and the book never plods.
I really believed that Camden and Seth were a loving couple and was rooting for them the whole way. The Ravineux were quite the wicked, inhumane villains and really felt like a real threat to the couple’s safety. I was pretty much glued to this story from beginning to end and I can’t wait to read more from this fresh and unique universe.
If I had any complaints about this book, it would be editing. There were several mistakes that could be weeded out with a bit more attention. In addition, the sex scenes delved into purple prose a few times. I don’t particularly find phrases like “throbbing man parts” to be attractive.
Flight of Fancy is a free read and I wholeheartedly recommend it. This isn’t a free story that feels like a rejected leftover. This book is a great setup for a world that I can’t wait to dip into again, hopefully with a full-size novel.
