Book Details: Written by Bestselling New Adult and Young Adult author Alyssa Rose Ivy. Published April 17th, 2014. 271 Pages. You can purchase a hard copy or digital copy at Smashwords /

Synopsis of Search: Casey, our leading lady, finds out at the end of Soar that her real father is a Pteron, not just any Pteron but the recently retired king, making her Levi's new baby sister and royalty. Casey turns to Toby for help and guidance with her new discovery after their recent failed attempt at a relationship. Toby is more than happy to help, being that he found out he was a Pteron later in life also. Not only does Casey have a new set of wings but also a new set of family members. The second that Georgina, Levi's grandmother, finds out about her new granddaughter she packs her bags and takes Allie with her to New York to welcome Casey to the family. After a tiring day of shopping with her grandmother Casey decides to meet up with Toby who has found some surprising information about her mother.

Jared is shocked and upset to find out he slept with another Pteron, which is taboo in his mind. Casey is brought back to New Orleans in order to train with Hailey on the new skills she acquired after her first transformation. Casey is glad to have Hailey, another female Pteron, showing her the ropes in this new world she has been thrown into. Allie is excited to have a new future sister in-law and asks Casey to be one of her bridesmaids for the approaching wedding of Allie and Levi in Hawaii. Things finally work out for Toby and Casey making for a very steamy couple of chapters. 

Jared has a gut feeling that something is going to happen while they are all out of New Orleans for the wedding and has a hard time enjoying himself while there.  Turns out Jared is right when all hell breaks loss and Casey is kidnapped by the bear shifters. Jared and Toby jump into action in order to save Casey from whatever the bears and their "boss" have planned for her. The ending is very shocking when the author reveals "the boss", leaving you with a million unanswered questions.

My Thoughts: Very unexpected ending!! I would have never guessed who the author was going to make "the boss". Great book! I love this series, it doesn't even seem like a spin-off from the Crescent Chronicles but just a continuation.  The author has a way of making you feel very comfortable with the characters, like they could be friends of yours. I loved how welcoming Georgina was with Casey to the family, she remains one of my favorite characters in the story.  I am very glad that Toby and Casey end up together, I wasn't sure what was going to happen after the ending of the first book Things get pretty steamy between the two, finally, when they are in Hawaii for Allie and Levi's wedding. So glad we finally get to meet Casey's long lost sister Vera, she has quit the personality! I cannot wait until the next book comes out the ending left a lot up in the air!
