Re-read review: I had a great time re-reading Silent Flyght. While it's not my favorite book in the series as Vivian goes through so much in this book and the whole situation with Tomu. There is still plenty that I really enjoy about this one, like the way we see Vivian with all 3 of her men and them interacting together and really becoming a network. And her growing connection with her fourth consort Matt is really great to see. While re-reading these books I am always surprised about parts I forgot and it's so fun to re-read them and remember those scenes as well as see some of the foreshadowing. On to book 6!
Original review: I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.
I really love the Flyght series and I was excited to dive into this fifth book in the series. Silent Flyght was another awesome read. There is just so much going on in this series, plot threads that seem to have fallen to the side that pop back up, main plot lines that are continuing, danger and action. As well as more romance and twists. And also a lot of difficulties for main character Vivian to deal with, just so much that goes wrong or endangers her. But there is also hope and I just love seeing this amazing group of men and friends that Vivian has surrounded herself with. Here's hoping that in book 6 she finally gets a shot at some peace and quiet and achieving her goals.
Silent Flyght starts right back up after book 4 ended. And it starts right up again with plenty of things going on. Vivian has to deal with a lot in this book and while I like how realistic this is all written and how it makes sense how much Vivian suffers under it, it can be hard to read about it all when I am a bit stressed myself. She's under so much stress and she's falling apart and she's just so hard on herself. I just want things to go Vivian's way for once, for her to take care of herself first. Even the happy and hopeful moments end all too soon when another stressful event, new twist or danger pops up. I am impressed she keeps on going, but I almost wonder if it isn't time she considers other options for her future.
This series is full with some great twists and I like the way the plot lines all blend together into this big adventure. I like the way some plot lines popped up again like the plants and the boys they found in a previous book. There is so much going on, but not in a confusing way. I also like how everything that happens connects back to previous events or we got some hints already of future things. I would love to re-read this series eventually so I can see all the foreshadowing and how all the plots threads continue throughout the series.
One of my favorite parts of this book is Vivian's blossoming romance with Mat, it was such a fun surprise when you realize who he is. And Vivian and Mat connect immediately and seem to have a strong bond from the start. Ofcourse nothing is ever that easy and Vivian figures out something isn't quite right, she's a danger to something Mat does and she has to figure out what. I do wish she would've been a bit more open to Mat about a few things, but I think it made sense she wasn't as they only just met. I do really like Mat and I think he's a great match for Vivian. It was nice to see how he cared for her and how they shared an interest in the same topic. We'll see what happens in book 6.
The romances are one of my favorite parts of this series. I really love seeing the reverse harem relationships coming together. The three guys in her network so far are amazing and I love how they are there for her and help her through everything. They are always there with kind and encouraging words to help her relax or even take things out of her hands so she has one thing less to worry about. They have her back through everything. And I like seeing how much each of them loves her and also how they work with one another to be there for Vivian.
There was one thing that didn't sit right with me from the start of this book and that was the whole Tomu situation. It just didn't seem right or smart what they did. They don't have the right capabilities to handle this and it just didn't seem right for them to determine what happened to him. I just knew something had to go wrong there and priority seems to be given to other tasks, while they have this dangerous person so close by. He really seems a despicable person and mainly because of that, the way things got wrapped up didn't fully work for me, but it did feel very in character and realistic.
This is one of those books that's hard to put down. I just had to know what happens next. And even with the moments that are difficult or sad to read, it's just such an addictive series. And I love seeing more about the world and these characters.
To summarize: This was another awesome read in this series. There is just so much going on in this book. This book was hard to put down as I just wanted to keep reading and figure out what happens next and easily read through this book in only a few days. I like reading about this world and the characters. This book was a bit difficult to read at times as it's just so sad to see how stressed Vivian is and how she struggles with everything going on and not eating enough or getting enough sleep, I wish she would prioritize herself at times, but I don't think that's something she will learn easily. Luckily she has 3 awesome men behind her who care and love her a lot. It's beautiful to see how they are there for her and help her where they can. I really like seeing the reverse harem romances develop. One of my favorite parts of this book was seeing Vivian and Mat together, Mat is her fourth possible lover and I liked seeing them get to know each other. They have a clear connection, but things stand in their way, so we'll see how that goes in the next book. I wasn't a fan of the whole Tumo situation as it didn't seem right or smart how they handled it. He really was a horrible character and while the way it was resolved felt realistic and in-character I wish it was resolved differently. All in all this was another awesome read in this series and I can't wait to see what book 6 will bring.
Silent Flyght is the fifth book in the Flyght series by S.J. Pajonas, and it’s another wonderful addition to the series. As with the prior books, once I started this one, I had to devour it in a single sitting. It’s such an addictive series, one with so much packed into it.
Silent Flyght once again packs a punch, ensuring we’re sucked deeper into the story. This one managed to confirm some of my beliefs, only to flip them within a few chapters. I went from believing I knew how things were going to play out to being shocked by the developments. I love this about the series, as it keeps me on the edge of my seat and eager for more. With the new elements introduced in this one, I’m super eager to see how everything comes together in the end.
Without a doubt, Silent Flyght is a brilliant addition to the series, taking certain aspects of the storyline in unexpected directions. This is more than worth the read if you’ve enjoyed the series thus far.
In each book in this series, the stakes are raised higher and higher. Will Vivian be able to pay off the debt to save her family's enterprise (a mega-farm)? Who will betray her next? Will she gain allies or more enemies?
I am so happy that I'm reading this series. Vivian is such a complex character. As the series progresses, we (readers) get to watch her transformation from a bitter, shy, insecure university graduate to a confident (sometimes) and strong woman. Her insecurities raise their ugly heads often, yet her decisions--esp. assembling her network of consorts, friends, and crew--are right on target. She becomes a sensible head of family while retaining her compassion and caring for her "family."
This series keeps getting better! Silent Flyght doesn't waste any time picking up where book 4 left off. Vivian has a lot to contend with but she's such a strong character there's no doubt she'll pull through. This slow-burn reverse harem romance is the perfect blend of sexy and smart with the sci-fi angle.
This newest book in the Flyght series had me on the edge of my seat!! I was having suspense induced anxiety from the twists and turns going on! Definitely recommend this book to everyone as a must read if you adore good Sci-fi writing ❤️
