High Flying, is a fast paced, suspenseful, psychological thriller Readers will find themselves with their hearts pounding while they read this In addition to addressing some sensitive topics such as self mutilation, and suicide, the author also touches upon a serious subject that is near and dear to my heart This involves the drug cartel and drug trafficking Living in the Imperial Valley, which was briefly mentioned in this book, I frequently see the results of the trauma caused by this issue It is also interesting to note that the members of the drug cartel have homes on this side of the border so that they can keep their children safer They take care of themselves while destroying the lives of others This is well demonstrated in High Flying It was also fascinating to watch the protagonist s character evolve as she gains insight into why her family was the way that they were The knowledge made her stronger as she fought to try to create a new future for them I appreciate that in spite of the new knowledge, the characters were still flawed This made everything believable The time travel aspect added a greater dimension to this story It was handled well in a way that made it seem plausible The author also did a great job of smoothly going between the past and the present, so that readers will not be confused by where they are at in the story It was a pleasure to read another great novel by Kaylin McFarren Her current fans and readers who enjoy suspenseful thrillers will enjoy High Flying Also Reviewed by Carol Hoyer for Reader Views 4 19 High Flying by Kaylin McFarren is an action packed, psychological paranormal thriller that captures readers attention from the first page Skylar Haines life is less than desirable due to the loss of her mother and father Given that she is unable to cope with past trauma and has low self esteem she finds that participating in self harm, specifically cutting, helps to relieve the emotional stress McFarren does an excellent job of stating at the beginning of the story that People cause harm to themselves for various reasons For the most part, it s to attempt to re connect with their emotions They want to feel something other than utter emptiness And for this reason, I would caution readers about the descriptive cutting behavior.Skylar lives with her grandfather, Jessop Haines who is controlling, arrogant and often abusive At the same time, it is her grandfather who took her in after her mother died, so she didn t end up in foster care Regardless of the verbal, emotional and sometimes physical abuse, she remains in his house.At her wit s end, Skylar runs away and ends up in Nevada as a pilot doing stunt shows with her partner, Jake Brennen During a high risk maneuver, Skylar s plane goes spiraling toward earth during a sudden storm When she lands, it s as if she entered a time warp finding herself in 1998 helped by Dylan Haines, her 25 year old father It is at this point in the story my thoughts are how great would it be to go back in time to meet your father before he knew you were his daughter The author does a superb job of introducing each character at the right time and showing how each fit into the plot Numerous individuals from Skylar s past play an important role in her personal growth some of which readers will either love or hate.While Skylar is figuring out how she traveled back in time and what it means, the author presents several characters, some of them very shady and full of revenge and they keep you on the edge of your seat It is hard to figure out how this story is going to end until the actual end Clues are given, but the plot keeps twisting and turning so the reader will have to wait until the last chapter to know for sure who the bad guy actually is High Flying is one of the most unique suspense thrillers I have read in a while I highly recommended reading Kaylin McFarren s story for intrigue, deception, kidnapping, and an excellent perspective of self harm The author provides readers with two stories in one while at the same time providing excellent research and information on self harm. I love how many good quality thrillers are becoming available with a strong female lead Gone are the days when the female roles were limited to beautiful women in need of a male saviour Kaylin McFarren turns that notion firmly on its head with Skylar, the lead character, as a strong minded, thrill seeking stunt pilot who is desperate need of sorting her life out The journey she goes on to get there is a terrific, exciting roller coaster through drug cartels and high speed adventure The inclusion of self harm in the book I probably found the only troubling aspect While the author dealt with that and other mental health issues sensitively, I am not sure that the including it so graphically is the best, possibly being a trigger for someone who has, or is, struggling with cutting, but I appreciate that I may be being oversensitive on that point I am not always a fan of time travel in novels as it often seems to push the story into the realm of ridiculousness but again, McFarren manages to avoid that, masterfully allowing the reader to accept it as a matter of fact It also allows the reader to travel with Skylar as she comes face to face with her dead parents and can finally make sense of who she is as she sees the world and her own history through new eyes. Time travel is an overused theme in movies and novels Most writers regurgitate what they ve seen or read Not Kaylin McFarren, she expertly combines adventure and mystery with the sub genre Her book elicits strong emotions and makes us wonder what could have been Her characters are a little overexaggerated, but readers will make a connection with the protagonist Anyone who wishes they could turn back time and undo a tragedy will love the conundrums the heroine faces Readers will find themselves rooting for the heroine and hoping she finds peace, without making her life worse. If you could go back in time and change a piece of your history, would you Kaylin McFarren has seamlessly cooked up this genre potpourri A dash of science fiction, a dollop of action adventure, a sprinkling of drama, all mixed together into a compelling story Skylar s father was murdered before she was born, this left her grouchy grandfather to raise her Schuyler did not have the easiest of childhoods and always carried around the sadness of her father s murder As an adult she is a complete adrenaline junkie and her latest obsession is stunt flying One day while flying she encounters a storm that slips her back into time eight months before her birth prior to her father s murder Now it is up to Skyler to change the course of history or not Will this improve her life or destroy it Skyler was an interesting and intense character I really was keeping my fingers crossed that she would do the right thing throughout this book The concept is extremely thought provoking, and you did have to suspend believe a little unless you believe in time travel that is Made you think that every action you take, every decision you make, ultimately impacts not only your life but the lives of so many others So what if Skyler does stop her father s murder Would that make her life better What parts of her life would she have not lived, what people would she have not met if history were altered I got a little philosophical with this book, made me think about my own life a bit This was an incredibly compelling story with a intriguing premise Whether or not you believe in time travel this is one to add to the TBR Big thanks to the author for my copy of this book This book by Kaylin McFarren has something every reader will enjoy suspense with twists, adventure, and drama that will keep you turning the pages quickly.This was a very engaging and well paced novel It is always good news when this author has a new book out
