Flight (Dewdrop Prequel Trilogy, Volume 1) by C.A. Allen is an epic fantasy novel with exquisite attention to detail. C.A. Allen created a whole world where magic existed before A Dewdrop Away. Flight is a book best suited to young adults and adults who enjoy fantasy books where the characters are animals. Tiallin Stormskiln is a squirrel of eleven seasons, who has been honored by being given a position working for blind King Sirius. However, when Tiallin Stormskiln is tasked with investigating King Sirius’ suspicions, his whole world is shaken when he learns that everyone has their own secrets to hide and protect ... even those he would trust most.

Move over Nemo, Blue, and Dory - there is a new animal adventurer in the jungle and his name is Tiallin Stormskiln. Flight has a very well developed plot line. Flight follows three different squirrels as they all embark on separate adventures, and yet eventually all three adventures collide, bringing Tiallin Stormskiln, Edelle, and Lut together to face a danger worse than anything they ever imagined. While I loved Tiallin Stormskiln as the main character, I quickly found myself liking Lute, who was a former thief and an all-round misfit. My favorite aspect of the book was how realistic the squirrels all were, and how ingeniously C.A. Allen crafted each squirrel with his or her own unique character.
