As in the case of all siblings, each child is different - and Asiza is most certainly one of Cora's daughters who has a problem - even though all six of her girls were raised to be a Fancy...

Flight of Fancy Reviews
This book, like Book 1: The Fancy, took me on a beautiful journey of Love and a part of history that has either been pushed to the side or not acknowledged at all. This is one of my favorite eras to study. I have done my own research on fancies, slavery, colonialism, and when the Irish were "black." I must say, Ms. Keyes, that you have done a wonderful job with your research. I am also a sucker for a beautiful Love story. I appreciated the fact that Asiza was no shrinking violet - even in a time period when just that was expected of her. And Broc... aww *sighs* - I love that he never denied Asiza as his true mate and wife. I can't wait for the next installment in this series. Bring on Book 3: Fancy Free!
I love a books that is a good read but teaches you history along the way. I knew that the Irish were slaves but I never knew they used them to bread with Indians and blacks. I learned what a Fancy was reading from this author I never her the word before used in the context used in this book . This book is a love story about Broc and Asiza it was a wonderful exciting I truly enjoyed myself reading this book. This book has passion to me one of the most passionate moments to was when Asiza and Broc got caught in the rain while at a hide out ,they came inside and took turns watching each other undress to me it was really erotic they way they watched each other wanting each other but waiting until the time was right. When they made it to town my heart was beating so fast thinking they would be caught. This book will be hard to put down because you will always wonder what will happen next sometimes it will make you happy, sometimes nervous but you will never be disappointed while reading this book it is that good.
Flight of Fancy is the love story of Broc and Asiza. Two people who in the beginning seemingly have nothing in common. It is a story that over time and circumstances evolves into one beautiful love of a lifetime for two people.Broc Wolf is a bounty hunter hired to bring in the Fancy and slave Asiza for several murders. He thinks nothing of the fact that she's a woman. After all, it's his job. Fate however, has other plans for Broc. Once he finds Asiza, his mission takes a turn. When he sees her, he's captivated by her beauty and impressed by her survival skills. In that moment he's convinced with all of his being that he's found the woman for him. He will have his hands full convincing her of this fact. You see Asiza is a woman who knows that her life will be a short one. Love and happiness, beyond what she feels for her mother and sisters doesn't exists for her. She doesn't trust Broc, because he's a white man and she has good reasons why. Broc refuses to give up on her and sets out to prove that he is nothing like the other white men she's known.There were so many reasons to love both of these characters. He was a man of strong convictions. He followed his heart and listened to what his gut told him about Asiza. The fact that he always kept his promises to her also endeared him to me. What a hero! Plus, I adored his beautiful Irish brogue. I admired Asiza, because she was a woman who refused to live her life the way society dictated a woman of color should in that time. It was wonderful to watch her overcome the ghosts of her past and learn to trust in Broc and his love. She blossomed and became so much more than what she thought she was. I loved her strength and the evolution of who she became.The supporting cast of new and old characters added to the beauty of this story as well, which included one very special little boy that stole my heart. Contributing to the story was a lot of historical facts that I learned about African and Irish people. If you love history as I do, you'll love learning some new historical information. It was skillfully plotted, beautifully written and excellently researched. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Kudos Ms. Keyes!
My actual rating is closer to 3 1/2 stars. I didn't like this follow up the "The Fancy" as much as I enjoyed the first book. Ms. Keyes plans on writing four more books, one for each daughter of Cora. The story is a good one telling the story of Asiza the sister of Suga from the first novel and Broc. This was quite the adventure, having Asiza on the run and Broc a bounty hunter hot on her trail. They are both very headstrong people with interesting pasts. We are introduced to a lot of extra characters some new, and some recurring from not only the first novel but another series by Ms. Keyes. Toward the middle of the book the story slows down as the characters get to know one another and begin to think about and plan for a future together. The second half of the story gets a little redundant in that we are told some of the same things over and over by different people or by the main characters in inner monologues repeatedly in different ways (it's great to give us little known histories but there is line that crosses into being preachy and Ms. Keyes straddles this line). There is still tension and drama to be had where we fear for Asiza or Broc, things to be resolved and it keeps you going. As a reader you want to find out how these two will succeed, what plans does Broc have that he is not sharing with Asiza and why, etc. Ms. Keyes does not disappoint. The tiniest of annoyances is at the end of the book when Keyes can't decide how she wants to spell Whalen or Whelen which is the Irish word for Wolf, she changes the spelling within lines of each other. The very end is a happy one with an unexpected surprise. I didn't mind the surprise but apart of me hopes that all the stories don't end this way, still I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Job well done once again Ms Keyes! I am totally loving this series cannot wait until book three. Asiza "Wow!" is all i can say. These are some bad women in a time when black women were suppose to be a doormat looked upon as nothing but a tool to be used and abused these sisters were not having it. Broc was strong and just a perfect match for Asiza. This author truly has an amazing gift i am in the process of collecting everything she has written thus far. So glad i ran across her work.
Cora's daughters whom I love are such strong willed, stubborn and intriguing characters.I think Asiza may be my favorite yet and Broc (deep sigh in admiration) was an added bonus.Who doesn't love a man with an Irish brogue. ;)I appreciated Keyes writing a book series on Fancies. She sheds light on another aspect of slavery that I wasn't aware of.Mrs. Keyes. ..I'll be patiently waiting for the next book in the series.
After going through a wave of unfulfilled books, it was time to whip out one of my never-let-me-down author. Once again, Ms. Keyes has written another good story with unforgettable characters. Having read "The Fancy", which I enjoyed, "Flight of Fancy" was an exciting read to the series. I always get totally engrossed with her stories and characters. I loved Broc and Aziza story, a true romance. Can't wait to read the next installment. Keep them coming Ms. Keyes!!!
Mercedes Keyes is a woman on top of her game with historical romance. This was the second novel in the Cora's Daughter's series. It's filled with suspense & romance it kept my interest from the first page
I was really unsure about this type of romance novel, between a slave and White man but Mercedes Keyes way of telling a story won me over. Bonus points for making the hero European.
