REVIEW: Soar (The Empire Chronicles #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy


In the city that never sleeps the Chronicles continue…

Serving coffee is temporary, just like Casey's year off from school. She’s going to come up with a plan to stay in New York City and go back to college, and that plan does not involve dating a paranormal creature—let alone two.

Running the supernatural society of New York is not as fun as it sounds, especially when you still have to answer to your ex-girlfriend’s fiancé. Toby doesn’t mean to bring Casey into the chaos of his life, but he can't resist the girl who makes him smile when he thought no one else ever could.

Jared's in New York checking out a security risk for his best friend, the king. He plans to return to New Orleans quickly, but not if it means losing his chance with the brunette who pretends she wants nothing to do with him.

In over her head with a bunch of winged creatures who most definitely are not angels, Casey has to figure out who to trust with her life and maybe her heart.

My Thoughts

I wasn't exactly 100% sure what to expect from this book, but I can honestly say that it blew my mind! I absolutely loved it! It was a unique story that kept me intrigued over the course of the book.

Casey is taking time off college and is staying with her cousin in a tiny New York apartment. She works at a coffee shop, and has had her eye on Toby since he became one of her favorite customers. She didn't think that Toby even knew her name. At a mutual friend's party one night Toby asks Casey out.

Toby is the head of the New York chapter of a paranormal society. After saving Casey from a wolf attack one night, he feels the urge to protect her. 

Jared works closely with the King of the society, and has also taken an interest in Casey. He too, feels the need to protect her. 

Casey gets dragged in to a paranormal world she could never have dreamed of. As animal attacks become more frequent in the city, the society must discover who is behind the attacks and why Casey is being targeted. 

All the characters in Soar were lovable and I easily connected and related to them. Alyssa Rose Ivy's writing style is truly captivating. Once her stories have grabbed your attention, it isn't easily swayed. The one thing that irked me? The ending! Don't get me wrong, it was fantastic with a plot twist that I never saw coming, but now I have to wait! I have to wait for the next book in the series. I hope it isn't too far away. I can't wait to read more of The Empire Chronicles!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
