High Flying by Kaylin McFarren

Any book that sounds like a Twilight Zone episode is the kind of book I like to read!

Thank you Get Red PR and Creative Edge Publishing for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

TRIGGER WARNING: self-harm, suicide

Synopsis: Skylar Haines has struggled with personal demons most of her life, going to dark extremes to subdue anxieties rooted in her tragic past. On a perpetual hunt for the next adrenaline hit, she discovers a passion for flying and becomes a hard-edged stunt pilot, verging on obsession. In the sky, following her most daring airshow, she encounters a mysterious storm and almost collides with another aircraft, sending her into a perilous dive. Guided by a mysterious voice, she manages a safe landing but finds herself transported to another time. Eight months before she was born. One week before her father was murdered. Though baffled by her circumstances, Skylar soon arrives at a single certainty: Before her lies a remarkable chance to change her family’s destiny drastically for the better — or possibly even worse — depending on the choices she makes, before her window of opportunity closes.

The story starts off intense, but Kaylin is an amazing author. Her writing kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time. I’m just all for time travel stories these days! She beautifully paints each scene making me feel all the emotions along with Skylar. What a suspenseful story! I was highly surprised by this read and loved every minute of it! I still believe this should be a Twilight Zone episode.

4.5/5 Stars
