Review: Focus by Alyssa Rose Ivy

FOCUS (The Crescent Chronicles #2)
by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Published January 23rd 2013


Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

This review isn't easy for me to write. FOCUS is one of those books that was on my must read list and sadly I have to admit that I was a bit let down. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I wasn't happy with this sequel. Don't get me wrong it wasn't horrible, but there was way too much back and forth for me, and when the story climaxed it flat lined very quickly. I am all for a story moving along and being fast paced, but there were scenes I wish were more dragged out and a bit more detailed.

In FLIGHT I really liked Allie, but in this book I wasn't a big fan of hers. I felt her character changed a bit, and it sort of felt like I was reading the same series, but with a brand new main character. Levi was the same and just as sexy as ever. The chemistry between Levi and Allie has not changed and that I did enjoy a lot. I was happy that even though Allie has a lot of issues to deal with when it comes to Levi, you can still feel the sexual tension and the chemistry between the two. I am also more in love with all the other characters, especially Jared.

So am I giving up on this series? No, I am not. I absolutely love the world that Alyssa Rose Ivy has sucked me into, and despite my issues with Allie, I do like the other characters a lot. I am looking forward to the third book in this series, especially with the way this one ended. I recommend it!


  1. I haven't read this series yet. It's disappointing to hear you didn't enjoy this one as much as the previous book. That is such a frustrating thing to happen to book series.
