Flight of Sparrows by R.A. Lingenfelter is a young adult science fiction story and is the second installment in the End of Crows series. After the attack by the Dominion, Willow feels betrayed by Bradlee, whom she thought was a friend, and angry about the deaths of her parents. The only family she has left, Brice, her brother, is being held captive by the Dominion. The members of the Crow camp do not trust her because she is close to Bradlee, who turns out to be a spy. They all think she is waiting for the right time to betray them. Only Finn stands by her side and defends her, but now she is tired of the Crow's lack of action and decides to save her brother. Even though unsure of her developing powers, Willow embarks on a solo mission to infiltrate the Dominion camp to retrieve her brother. Will she succeed? And what will she uncover when she enters the Dominion walls?
Words cannot describe how much I loved reading Flight of Sparrows. I was glued to the pages from start to finish and could not put it down. It's a fantastic story about unconditional love, redemption, and the fight for freedom. Although it is the second book in this series, it can be read as a stand-alone story. R.A. Lingenfelter delivers a conversational, fast-paced, enjoyable, and engaging read. The author has also added an image of a bird throughout. I liked this detail because it is unique and eye-catching. The characters are the driving force of the story. It did not matter whether they were heroes or villains; they all had intriguing personalities. The main character, Willow, is determined and selfless, willing to risk it all for her loved ones. But now, I do not trust anyone around her because this installment contains a sneak peek into the next in the series, Rise of Falcons, and it revealed plot twists that left me wishing for more. I cannot wait to read more from this author and series. Brilliant story.
