Character Interview With Levi!

Hi Levi! I'm so happy to have you stop by the blog today! For those just now meeting you, can you tell us a little about yourself? 

Hey Jennifer. Thanks for having me. I’m Levi Laurent, and I’m really just your average guy—well except that I run The Society and can fly. 

What do you like best about yourself? Least? 

I like my strength, and if I had to pick something I didn’t like, it’s that I’ve hurt Allie in the past. 

Biggest fear? 

Losing Allie.


Is there anything you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done? 

I’ve never been sky diving (JK) 

If you had one wish, what would it be? 

To spend the rest of my life with Allie (It’s a wish that will come true).

Awww again! 

When you become King what are you most and least looking forward to? 

I’m looking forward to finally running things my way. I’m not looking forward to how much of my life it’s going to take over. 

If you were a regular person and not a Pteron, what would you do with your life? What occupation would you want, and how would you spend all your time? 

I think I’d just focus on business. I already do some of that with my job, but it would be nice to have more time to spend on it. I’d probably still travel a lot, and my guess is I’d be more into sports. 

What do you do when you are bored? 

Fly somewhere new, play basketball, play video games, annoy my roommates. 

So I've been wondering, when did you first learn to fly? 

We learn real young, but we’re not allowed to do it on our own until we’re older. 

Allie seemed to adjust to you being a Pteron well, but were you worried about telling her? 

I had a good feeling about telling her. She just seemed like the kind of girl who would like the idea. I was a little bit afraid she’d run away screaming—but I had a plan b to get her back of course. 

Most romantic date? 

Nothing beats a rooftop date. I have several planned for Allie as soon as things settle down. 

Now last but not least the most important question on all our minds...boxers or briefs?! 


If Allie doesn't want to be your queen I just wanted to let you know I would be willing to fill the position ;-) 

Thanks, but Allie’s going to be staying around.

Darn! But thanks so much for stopping by!

Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society. Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

I'm going to give a bit more away about the plot than I did in my first two reviews. The paranormal element is unique in this series but when this last cover was released I saw a bunch of comments from people that don't like angle books. So I want to explain that Levi is not an angel but a Pteron. A bird hybrid, crow to be exact, and as we learn in this book there are other types of Pterons that have other colored wings besides black. He is the prince of a supernatural society. Pterons marry humans though and Levi finding a mate is important to his society.

Allie accepted all this better than I expected. But in the first book Levi still withheld some very important information. Allie has forgiven him and it would be hard not too because it is so clear that Levi truly loves her and would do anything for her. Allie can be stubborn and frustrating though. She often picks fights with Levi over a lot of little things. They are usually quick fights though because Levi is hard to resist. But I really really love their relationship and will miss them after this book. They are a fun couple and Levi always has me laughing or swooning.

The secondary characters are also a lot of fun which is honestly usually rare for me to find in books. I usually don't even mention them but Levi's friends Jared and Owen are great and Jared is definitely a scene stealer. Hailey is a great best friend to Allie. Such a great friend that Allie wants to stay in the dorm with her instead of moving into a big new house?!? That was part of Allie's stubbornness and personally I thought she was a bit cray cray! I'd be packing my bags! Like sorry Hailey!

As I said Levi is very important in the supernatural society and therefore Allie is as well. Allie figures out she has an even bigger role. Which draws some unwanted attention from her ex-boyfriend and some pterons. It was an interesting twist to Allie. I did like how the villain turned into a hero at the end. I loved how Levi would give up anything to protect Allie. I was a little unsure if the society or Allie was more important but Levi cleared that up for me and the interview proved it further. I love the paranormal aspect to this series and would still have liked to learn more about it so I am happy there will be a new spin-off series called Soar. I basically loved everything. It is rare to find a unique paranormal world and I am excited to see even more of it!

"It's going to be hard enough to explain to her that her future grandchildren are going to have wings."

"It's very real. It's also sturdy. You can ride it if you want."
I laughed. "The only bird I'm riding is you."
He chuckled. "I love when you talk dirty."

"A reminder?" 
"That you will always come first. The Society, the crown, none of that matters as much as you do." 

 Rating: 5/5

Flight (Crescent Chronicles #1)
Flight (The Crescent Chronicles, #1)
Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

Alyssa Rose Ivy is a Young Adult and New Adult author who loves to weave stories with romance and a southern setting. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children, and she can usually be found with a cup of coffee in her hand.
