Series Review: Flight & Glory (Rebecca Yarros)

At the end of 2018, I read my first book by Rebecca Yarros. I was so impressed with The Last Letter that I vowed to go back and read some of Yarros’ previous releases. It took me a little over a year, but I finally got to the first book in her Flight & Glory series. Once I started with that one, I had to read the rest of the series. Here are my mini reviews for each book that has been released.


Full Measures, Book 1: ★ ★ ★ ★

Full Measures was a great start to this series. I’m impressed that this was Yarros’ debut novel. It was a sweet and somber story full of heat and indecision. Ember drove me a little nuts, but overall I liked her. I loved Josh. Overall, it was a good read that hit the emotional punches it delivered.

Eyes Turned Skyward, Book 2: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Eyes Turned Skyward was a predictable romance, but that didn’t matter because everything about it was fantastic. Jagger is a hero everyone will swoon over. He was a bad boy who was actually really good. I loved the care her took of Paisley. Paisley was a little frustrating at times, but I still loved her. She was sweet and good and perfect for Jagger.

Beyond What is Given, Book 3: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This series just keeps getting better and better. Beyond What is Given was an amazing addition to it. Again, the story was a predictable (as romances often are), but the characters make up for that. I loved how feisty and strong Samantha was even when her world was crashing down around her. I loved how Grayson pointed her in the right direction to put herself back together and ended up doing the same for himself. Grayson… Definitely a new favorite character of mine. I loved his hard shell and quiet demeanor. I think they’re my favorite couple in this series, but it’s hard to pick because all of them are amazing in their own ways.

Hallowed Ground, Book 4: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Hallowed Ground is the book I didn’t think I wanted, but desperately needed. I was hesitant to read it because I didn’t want to go back to Josh and Ember’s relationship and dig up old issues. I sucked it up and read it because a friend told me I would need to read it before book 5 is released. I’m happy I did because even when Josh got dumb and annoying, I could see the importance to and of the story. This was the most heartbreaking to read, but also maybe the most fulfilling. I wish I didn’t have to wait for book #5.

    1. Yay! I loved The Last Letter. This series was really good, too. It made me want to go back and read the rest of her backlist.

  1. Glad to hear you’re enjoying this series so much. I’m also so impressed at how quickly you moved through this series. I’m so terrible about sticking with a series until I’m either caught up or finished. I get distracted by other books way too easily, lol.

    1. I think you would love The Last Letter. Probably more than this series, but I can see you liking a couple in this series, too.

    1. Well, it depends. This series is NA. It’s set in the college & military. I read her book The Last Letter and that was more contemporary/women’s fiction. I think you would like her writing. She’s got the emotion down like Brittainy C. Cherry.

  2. I seriously love the sound of this series! I feel like it’s one that I’m going to love. I already have Full Measures on my Kindle so it’s just a matter of getting to it (story of my life LOL).

    1. Yay! I am so happy you’re going to read it! I can’t wait for your reviews! I think it will be one you like, too!
