    1. So a dragon, a vampire and werewolf walk into an Inn….Shimmer is a blue dragon shifter, who has been exiled from the Dragon Reaches for five years and sentences to work Earthside with Alex Radcliffe. Alex is a vampire who owns the Fly by Night Magical Investigation Agency. I love the set-up and right away I am hooked.Galenorn does a wonderful job of explaining this world where humans and the supernatural live together. Shimmer’s backstory and reason for exile are explained, but we also get [...]

    2. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.While not exactly what I expected, FLIGHT FROM DEATH is an interesting, mysterious urban fantasy with ghosts and spooky creatures galore! With creative mythology and great characters, FLIGHT FROM DEATH is a good start to what seems to be a promising series.My biggest complaint is that though this is the first in the Fly by Night series, I kept feeling that I missed some crucial action before this book started. The characters made repeated references to [...]

    3. So, this book didn't finish what it put forth. There's this exiled dragon who works for a vampire in a PI firm, they get a job to clear out a ghost problem. Fun premise But, the back story was crap; you kept getting references to these events (probably a set up for you the buy the prequel) where the dragon-girl almost stabbed the vampire-guy once. You also don't get the whole tale of her being banished from the dragon realm. Then there's all the supernatural types, I guess you have to read the a [...]

    4. If you are a fan of this authors Otherworld series then you will remember meeting Shimmer in the previous book Flight From Hell but fear not Shimmer does kind of explain herself as this story rolls along . Shimmer is a blue dragon but she has been banned from the dragon realm for five years as punishment but not everything is as it seems and although we get some information the author cunningly teases the reader making this story even more curious and engaging. So here is Shimmer Earthside and w [...]

    5. All’s fair in love and bounty hunting when Shimmer is exiled Earthside and sentenced to work for Alex Radcliffe, especially when a curse, angry spirits and a dark force are involved in this fantastic new series.When an old friend needs help, Alex, Shimmer and Ralph head to High Tide Bed & Breakfast in Port Townsend to help but this case may be too much for the trio to handle and the reader gets pulled into all the intrigue and excitement just as other characters get pulled in to help stop [...]

    6. Right from page one, I was hooked by this book. I was immediately intrigued by the paranormal world that Yasmine created in this book. I wanted to learn more and more about all of the paranormal creatures. Yasmine also created a very addicting mystery plot line. I engrossed in the mystery, and I wanted to learn the answer behind the mystery as much as the main characters did. The mystery did scared me a little bit, but I still really enjoyed it. There were a few times thought out the book when I [...]

    7. Thank you to BERKLEY and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.2.5 starsLet me start off by saying that I really wanted to love this book. I’m finishing up a series right now where the world is so interesting and intricate, and I was hoping to follow it up with another series that had more of the same. Unfortunately, this fell short for me. Flight from Death is a story about Shimmer the dragon shifter who has been cast out of the Dragon Reaches and is now [...]

    8. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Alex and Shimmer must discover the cause of a haunting at a bed and breakfast before it has to close for good in this entertaining first book in Yasmine Galenorn’s new series.Opening Sentence: “Hurry up, damn it!”The Review:Shimmer has been exiled from the Dragon Reaches, banished Earthside for a term of five years, during which she must work for Alex, a vampire who runs the Fly by Night Investigations Agency. While her time Earthside [...]

    9. Leigh's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.75 starsThis was a new series and a new author for me, and I was not disappointed. The writing was clean and kept me enthralled, and the characters were so diverse and interesting, I was never sure what type of supernatural creature was going to pop up next. A cross between True Blood and an episode of Ghost Adventures, I was thrown into a world of horror and fantasy with a bit of romance worked in for good measure!Shimmer was one of the st [...]

    10. I thought that this book was okay, and honestly I feel like 4 stars is quite generous, but for whatever reason I decided to rate it that way. There were many times I felt like the story dragged on, even when there was action! I don't know if it was Yasmine's writing style or that I wasn't in the mood to read this type of book.I think I like Shimmer, but I don't know. Hopefully when the sequel comes out, Shimmer will have more depth and personality. I really disliked the vampires in this book. Th [...]

    11. I hate giving authors bad reviews. I will be honest here and say that I did not finish it I couldn't get past the GOD AWFUL writing. I had to check the age of the author, it was so immature and weak I was just plain BORED. Sorry, feel bad but it's just not good.

    12. Alrighty, just finished this one today as I was just dying to get to know more about Shimmer, our first real chica dragon in Galenorn's world of various nature, supernatural/paranormal characters and creatures. She was under a charm last time we saw her from Flight from Hell, out to take out her vampy boss Alex Radcliffe. But after she was saved and cured by our favorite D'Artiago sisters in arms, there was much more to be learned about this character. I mean who wouldn't want to learn more abou [...]

    13. 3.5 starsSome authors have been around for a long time but I have not had the chance to read their books because, well, I feel too lazy to catch up with their collection. Such was the case with Yasmine Galenorn who is popular with her Otherworld series (there are 17 books to date!). Luckily, this year, she releases “Flight from Death” which is the first book of a new series, albeit set in the realm of Otherworld. What makes me quite excited about this book is the fact that the heroine, Shimm [...]

    14. I gave it 3.5 starsI enjoy dragon books and I was really excited to see that FLIGHT FROM DEATH featured a FEMALE dragon as its heroine. The fly by night series is set in the Otherworld. I have not completed Yasmine's Otherworld series and there were a few mentions of stuff happening between Alex and Shimmer that seem to have appeared in a previous book (Otherworld #15.5; Fly by Night, #0.5), so I wanted to mention that so you know going in. I don't feel it took anything away from the story and I [...]

    15. This book is a great start to a new series that is set in the author's Otherworld series. Being that the world is the same it there isn't a big info dump on the rules, just on new creatures that are introduced.I really like Shimmer. She seems to have gotten the shaft in the Dragon Realm, but not as bad as she could have. I have a feeling that at some point we will learn more about Shimmer's heritage and it will be big. In the mean time I like the new family that Shimmer seems to be building arou [...]

    16. I was really looking forward to this book because to be honest: a dragon shifter and a vampire how could I not but in the end I was quite a bit disappointedthe storyline was ok but sometimes I got the feeling I missed a whole book (yes I know there is a novella before but that should not account for all the character development at least in my opinion), which is plain wrong.on the whole the story was good but I didn't get a connection to or between the characters and do you really want to kno [...]

    17. The synopsis of this book had me hooked; what's better than an exiled dragon teamed up with a vampire and a werewolf on a ghost hunt? Right from the first page I was intrigued. Although, names are usually a huge deal to me, I had to look past her nameShimmer. It was a little overkill to me. It was a great supernatural world that held me in suspense as I read to unravel the mystery. There were places the story lagged and, to me, it was typically when the romance popped up. Leaving that out and ra [...]

    18. An excellent new series that occurs within the same timeline as the Otherworld series that Yasmine has written. I was hoping that the next one might be ready to go, but it will not be available until 8/2016.This series starts off with a water dragon named Shimmer who is caught in the Dragon Reaches stealing. Normally this would be a death sentence, but she is stripped of a majority of her powers and is banished to live earth side for 5 years.While starting there; the Wing Liege gets her a job wi [...]

    19. This is an easy novel to get into: well paced, likable characters, uncomplicated conflict resolution, quick (not insta-love) romance. good start to a new series

    20. Originally posted at SmexyBooks-smexybooks/2015/07/review-Urban Fantasy author Yasmine Galenorn is back with a new series, Fly by Night. Galenorn first introduced this world in the novella-Flight From Hell #15.5 in the Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon series. Though it’s linked, it isn’t required for you to read the Otherworld series in order to understand this one. The main protagonist Shimmer, is an orphaned blue dragon who was exiled Earthside for five years for a crime against another drag [...]

    21. Shimmer, a blue dragon from the Dragon Reaches, is exiled to earthside and bonded to work for Alex Radcliffe, a vampire who owns the Fly by Night Magical Investigation Agency, for the next five years. With her powers as a blue dragon limited, she is trying to fit in and learn the culture of her new home. When an old friend of Alex’s asks for help in trying to determine what is haunting his new house that he is trying to turn into a bed and breakfast, Alex, Shimmer and Ralph quickly find out th [...]

    22. I’m a fan of Yasmine Galenorm’s Otherworld series, but I got a bit behind on them. When I saw she started a spinoff series around Dragons I thought this would be a great chance to jump back in without having to read all those books I’ve missed. I love dragons and I really love the Otherworld series, so I thought I couldn’t go wrong with Flight From Death.The good news is that I enjoyed the book. The bad news is it didn’t completely wow me. The Otherworld series is based around three co [...]

    23. Flight From Death was the perfect mix of awesome paranormal romance and action packed urban fantasy! I was slightly worried going into it since it’s a spin off series that contains a ton of characters who have an established past together. I hadn’t read the previous series and that’s always a concern for me but Galenorn set the stage with ease and drew me in before the end of the first chapter.Shimmer is a rare blue dragon who has been exiled from her home land for five years and banished [...]

    24. Shimmer is a Blue Dragon. She was exiled from her home after being caught stealing. But, there is more to the story. As a reader you just know it. Shimmer doesn't know who her parents are. She grew up in an orphanage for dragons like her. Without parents she becomes part of the lowest cast. As part of her punishment she is sent to Earth without most of her powers for five years. Luckily she was sent to Alex Radcliffe. Alex is the owner of Fly by Night Magical Investigations Agency. He is a vampi [...]

    25. The heroine has never felt welcomed or even liked in the land of Dragons. She's a low born, someone who doesn't even have a name, someone to be shunned and ridiculed. So when she's caught stealing from the white clan and given the choice of exile or death, she chooses banishment. Luckily, a friend of the judge is able to take her in. So, there she is. Banished from her home for 5 years, only able to shift into her dragon form when in the ocean and employed with the hero in his P.I. agency. But l [...]

    26. This was my first Yasmine Galenorn read and I honestly had no idea what to expect when I went in All I knew was there was a dragon shifter heroine and a vampire hero and I was hooked. Unfortunately while I did enjoy Flight from Death to an extent, I was highly disappointed in the romance aspect of the book.Shimmer is a dragon shifter that has been exiled from the Dragon Reaches and has been sentenced to five years Earthside. She's been working for Fly by Night Investigations Agency for a few mon [...]

    27. I've seen the name of Yasmine Galenorn for a while now but never quite got around to reading any of her books. So "Flight from Death" was my first exposure to this author and I was not disappointed.Shimmer is a blue water dragon who was never given a name or knew of her parentage.She has lived as a pariah in the dragon world treated with disdain and disgust. When the sons of a white Dragon (the highest caste) strip her naked and humiliate her she sets out for revenge by stealing from him. This i [...]
