Yasmine Galenorn is starting another series. In Flight from Hell, we are introduced to these new characters through Galenorn's well known and loved Otherworld cast. It seems a dragon called Shimmer gets herself into some trouble and the D'Artigo sisters are called in for help.

Although this is a novella length story, we are given a good taste of the new Fly By Night Series to come leaving me ready to follow Alex, Ralph and Shimmer and what is sure to be another fabulous paranormal fantasy...with

A prequel in the Fly By Night urban fantasy spin-off series from Galenorn's Otherworld / Sisters of the Moon and introducing Shimmer, a dragon outcast from the Dragon Reaches. Both series are set in Seattle.

My Take
This is a very smooth introduction to the Fly By Night spin-off series with most of the action involving the D'Artigo sisters and told from Mennolly's viewpoint. Which is rather odd since it is supposed to be a subseries with new protagonists.

The action is typical Otherworld problems

A new cast of heroes join the D’Artigo sisters on the hunt for Carter’s missing girlfriend in this thrilling Otherworld story. When Carter asks for help locating Shimmer, they set off for the Fly By Night Magical Investigations and discover a rogue vampire with a diabolical plot of revenge and mayhem.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers shivering in anticipation with thrills and chills as Menolly takes the lead in finding Shimmer. The author brings the story to life with well wr

Flight from Hell is a novella about Shimmer an outcast Blue Dragon that is sent to Earth as a punishment.

Menolly is on the hunt for the vampire siring all the wreck loose vampire that are leaving a trail of blood in their wake, when she is asked to look in on Shimmer as a favor. This is

Actually give this one a 4.5 as it was too short. There was no closure for Carter & Shimmer either. It just needed a little bit more. Over all tho, I enjoyed it as I have all of Ms. Galenorn's writings.

This is a crossover introducing a new series. We get the D'Artigo sisters who are helping to figure out what's going on, not only with a new nest of vampires popping up, but also with the blue dragon, Shimmer, who is working for a vampire private investigator. It seems like she's all of a sudden very grumpy. Before she tries to murder him.
An interesting story and a fast read. I felt like there were almost more details in the first book of Fly by Night than in this story. You almost don't need th

I have read Flight from Death before this, even if this book is supposed to happen before. Oupp my bad.
I do like Shimmer & Alex and this was a quick introduction to the Fly by Night Magical Investigation Agency world. It was ok, but I found it focus too much on the D’Artigo sisters. I haven’t read the other Otherwold novels so I was a little bit lost.

Wonderful crossover story!

I've loved the Otherworld series since I was first introduced to them. And the Fly By Night Agency spinoff is an excellent addition to the world. I enjoyed this story immensely and can't wait to read the next one.

I'll be honest, I used to adore this series. I preordered every new book the second they came out, and I moved to the Indigo Court series with ease, I loved this author and her style so much.

But lately the books have become tedious. I'm starting to become so exasperated with them, I'm almost shocked.

This new novella is supposed to be a jumping off point for the new series Galenorn will be working on, Fly By Night. I appreciate the effort taken to tie the new series to her old one, it's a clever

The help that Carter (who is half Titan, half demon) has given Menolly and her sisters (the D’Artigos) has helped them immensely in their battle with Shadow Wing, so when he calls needing their help, they don’t hesitate. Once he tells them why he’s so worried about Shimmer, they aren’t convinced that there is an actual problem. But, once they head to the Fly By Night Magical Investigations Agency to inquire about Shimmer, it doesn’t take them long to find out that there is indeed something wrong ...more

This novella will get your heart pounding as we get to see what the D’Aritgo sisters do best. Kick some bad guy ass. Menolly, with her sisters Camille and Delilah dive into the disappearance of Shimmer, a dragon that had been ground to earth.

Learning that Shimmer works at the Fly By Night Magical Investigations Agency, the girls do some investigating of their own. Walking into the doors of FBN opens the setting for the new series. Meeting what I believe to be an eclectic but yet what shou

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

This is a really quick read, and the perfect introduction into Yasmine's upcoming spin-off world. I really love novellas like this that give a little extra in a series, as well as novella prequels to open a series. This one had the best of both of those worlds and really tied things together for me. And the fact that the new series is going to be about a dragon? I'm more than sold. While Shimmer isn't the focus of this story as it's told fro

Shimmer is a dragon who has been banned from the Dragon realm. Carter isn't the only one who's worried about her. Shimmer worked for Alex, who's a vampire, and they got along very well, but before she disappeared she tried to stake him. The D'Artigo sisters suspect her strange behavior wasn't out of free will and together with Alex they' ...more

Good Novella, introducing the authors new spin-off series, Fly By Night. I enjoyed my first look at the new characters, and I am hopeful that Yasmine will work her magic and bring them to life a bit more than was gained from this short novella. My only concern is that (she) made the future too obvious between Alex and Shimmer; so much was unsaid, but exposed, in this novella that I am hoping the first novel doesn't fall flat because of this. On the flip side, I am confident in Yasmines ability t ...more

Flight from Hell is a novella bridging Yasmine Galenorn's current Otherworld series with her upcoming spin-off series, Fly By Night. Obviously, Flight from Hell in not a starting point, nor is it a standalone novella. If you are interested in the brilliant world that Ms. Galenorn has created, start with book one, Witchling, and enjoy the ride.

Flight from Hell is mostly told from Menolly's point of view, which was a treat as I recently read Crimson Veil and wasn't expecting to get anything else f

WTF Are You Reading?
Yasmine Galenorn sets quite the stage for her new series, Fly By Night. Menolly makes a very strong showing as a transitional lead. Effectively bridging both the gap between the already established world staring the D'Artigo clan, and that set to feature Shimmer.

Here's hoping that hunky leading vamp Alex is allowed to stay front and center in the coming series. Thereby ushering in a whole new playground in which Menolly can be allowed to play.
Special distinction is given to the lady vamp in this

Flight From Hell is an introduction or tie-in if you will to Yasmine Galenorn's newest "Fly by Night" series, which will be set in the same timeline and world as the Otherworld series. However, this new series puts the focus on Shimmer and Alex, who we learn more about in this novella.

As it stands, this was an excellent novella written in Menolly's point of view (for the most part). There is a lot of "flash back" type information that seems to be Yasmine Galenorn's signature. This flash back in

Having never read Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld Series, I was nervous going into this novella. The Otherworld books have been on my TBR pile for awhile now, but I haven’t had the time to sit down and read a lengthy series. I requested Flight from Hell from Netgalley as a way to get my feet wet with Yasmine’s other series. I loved Indigo Court so I knew I’d probably like Otherworld as well.

Without having any prior knowledge of the characters or the world, I think I fell in love with this novella

It's been a long time since I've read a Sisters of the moon book, but Flight from Hell is a crossover to a news series and the blurb mentioned Dragonshifters which sounded really interesting to me.

Flight from Hell is a quick story, and I remembered enough about the D'Artigo sisters and their stable of significant others so that I had no problem jumping back in. Menolly, who is in the lead here, is my least favorite sister, but the background conflict in the story was fine - a slew of vampire tu
