Synopsis (Goodreads):
A rescue gone wrong.

It was supposed to be simple. Four members from the Western States planned to sneak into the Eastern States to free four condemned Others. But when they arrived at the experimental labs where the Others were being held, it was under attack from Rebel forces.

Griff Hughes had one job...

He had to find Shar, a wounded hawk shifter. But in the ensuing chaos, he became a captive instead of a rescuer. Three days later he awakens in his own cage, alone. But during the nights, he’s not alone. An alluring redhead with a siren’s call visits his dreams, and his resistance is breaking down.

Shar McIntire is just trying to survive.

After three years in captivity, Shar has one goal...keep her and her sister alive. To do so means cooperating with the evil doctors who want her to seduce and manipulate Griff. She likes and is drawn to the man with the strange chocolate wings, but she can’t let that attraction distract her. Her sister’s fate is in her hands.

In the last eighteen years, life hasn’t been easy for anyone.

The WS and the ES have been separate entities, but once the Veil was crossed, things began to evolve. It’s a new world, but that doesn’t mean it's going to get any easier anytime soon.
Thoughts on Allied in Flight: Things are getting a wee bit tangled for those from the WS. And for those from the ES, come to think. Danger, heartache, and betrayal are just a few of the problems our heroes (and heroines) have to face.

When Griff ends up imprisoned during the botched rescue attempt, he has to rely on his wits and the sexy shifter he was sent to save. Might I just say there were some interesting allies that arose. I'm not quite sure what to think of one of them and whether they're trustworthy or what their endgame is. Things could get very complicated down the line.

Right. Griff and Shar. After years of captivity, Shar is desperate. Her link to her sister has been severed and she's running on empty. Meeting Griff and finding out why he'd come is almost too good to be true and their connection complicates (there's that word again!) things. Because Shar is hot for Griff and he's hot for her and this isn't the best time to be getting kissy-faced.

But you can't deny attraction. Even when the timing's all wrong and you're from two different worlds.

We get to delve deeper into the politics of the ES and see how things haven't changed since the Veil rose. It's a crazy, messed up world, but there are people working on making changes. Big, complicated changes. Which, of course, are the best type.
