Joshua Bangs and Jordan Stone are vying for the love of Laney Stillwater. They can’t walk away because their souls have been bound by the spirits for all of eternity.

In the second installment of The Wildflower Series, the stakes are higher than the guy getting the girl. Laney struggles with her feelings as the two boys fight for her affection, but a broken heart pales in comparison to the soul-devouring perils awaiting them in the spirit world.

Over the course of hundreds of years the past lives of the three reincarnates have proven time and time again that their love is beyond tragic. It's fatal.
No. The book didn't end that way. Why did it end that way? WHY?!

Fly Away is the second installment of The Wildflower Series, and long overdue for my reading. I don't know why it took me so long to decide to read this when it should have been very soon after finishing Wildflower. Though, come to think of it, I never knew until I saw it on Amazon under the whole area that's like "Customers who bought this item also bought..."

Anyway. For those who weren't there when I reviewed Wildflower, I just absolutely love this series. Sure, it has its whole love-triangle issue that a majority of young adult books contain, but this is... different. Instead of it just being there, there's a reason, and unfortunately, as said in the summary, a fatal one. Ms. Jones knows how to make you feel the emotions Laney feels, especially when Jordan or Josh is being a jerkhole. She actually succeeded in making me legitimately angry at Josh to the point where my own boyfriend was wondering what he did (hehe oops).

I believe I said this in Wildflower's review, but I absolutely love love love the concept behind this story. You don't see many books with reincarnation like this, and as a subject I find enjoyment in, it was a blessing. This book does not get enough credit or even reads. It really should. It's actually really aggravating how this isn't at least decently known by readers.

Upon finishing the book (refer to the very first line of this review), I just was so angry at the ending. The story itself just can't have been finished like that. Seeing as how this was published in 2013, I was upset. Luckily I found her website and noticed that there is news that it may come out this year (holy shit, yes).

If you're looking for something truly different and entertaining, I definitely recommend this. As I've said, this doesn't get enough reads, and the author is wonderfully talented. Go. What the hell are you waiting for?
