18 year-old socialite Camille Vanderhale’s life is not going the way she had planned. Her days are normally spent attending one vapid social event to another. Ballroom galas, charity auctions at the Met and afternoon tea with New York’s elite is how she spends most of her time. The Vanderhales are American Royalty and she is the perfect gilded princess…
Unfortunately for Camille, developing these superhuman powers isn’t her only problem. The history books she studied in school about the birth of our nation, and her family’s role in it, couldn’t have prepared her for the truth: the Vanderhales are part of a century’s old secret society consisting of America’s most prominent families, with dark intentions and even darker secrets hidden in their history.

This an ‘arc” copy eBook supplied by Netgalley. I am not receiving any monetary benefit or any kickback for this review. I received this arc for an honest review. This review is cross-posted on Amazon, Goodreads and given directly to the publisher.

Flight is a debut novel. The premise is interesting. Camille Vanderhale, the Main Character, is a rich girl who has everything material that she could ever want. Her family appears close but it’s all a sham. The only one Camille is close to is Noelle, her sister. Camille has a secret, she has abilities. The abilities seem to stem from her angel genes. The cover is pretty. It fits well with the storyline. Considering Camille keeps finding feathers after certain events happen.

Everyone is not who they seemed to be. Camille finds that as she goes along. At first, it was slow but seemed to pick up as Camille learned information. Xavier was as strong of a love interest as I had hoped. But he does seem to have potential. I’ll wait and see where the author goes with the story. The love at first sight is a miss for me. It worked for the story. I like slow build romance. I just have issues with LaFS, and insta-love. Camille and Xavier was LaFS and close to being insta-love. Flight dropped points with that. But I was warned.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR (Source:amazon): The author believes in the magic of insta-love and in soul mates, and can’t help writing about that magic in her books. Proceed with caution if you’re not a shameless romantic like she is…

The diversity was awesome, not every character was Caucasian. Charlene has a good skill at describing the actions and scenes. Although, I thought sad/sadness was a bit overused. Trust me, you can ignore it. The characters grow and bust out of their 2dness that happens in the beginning as the story progress. It is twisty. I did not see the end coming, nor who Camille was up against.

Overall, I did enjoy this story. It is a solid story, if you are wanting a quick paranormal romance. I give Flight 4 out of 5 stars. I finally found an angel book I can get behind. This review is cross posted on goodreads, and amazon. Check it out!
