FOCUS Description:

Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Flight (The Crescent Chronicles, #1)
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.
FLIGHT Description:

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.

The Inspiration Behind the Crescent Chronicles
By Alyssa Rose Ivy
I love Paranormal Romance novels, and I always said that if I was going to write one, it had to be set in New Orleans. Originally from New York, I was entranced by New Orleans when I moved down for college.

After spending four years in that amazing city, I realized that if the supernatural really did exist, it would be found there. There is just something about that city that makes you believe it’s possible.
My experiences as a college student in New Orleans definitely influenced and inspired the series. Sprinkled throughout the books are some actual antidotes’ from my own life. For example, I witnessed a ‘vampire wedding,’ in New Orleans that inspired the scene in Flight when Allie is shocked to see people with fangs drinking from a chalice. Although the majority of the series is pure fiction, it’s been a writing experience full of nostalgia.
