Name--State Review

After reading book one of the FLIGHT TRILOGY by Mike Coe, I was anxious to read book 2. "Flight into Darkness" is a gripping suspense story that I found hard to put down. Without a doubt, Coe delivered a fantastic sequel! As with book one, the sequel had a major twist that caught me completely off guard--a very satisfying ending. This story would be an amazing movie. You do not have to read book one (Flight to Paradise) in order to enjoy this story, but knowing the history of the characters definitely added to the story. I highly recommend this novel. I am eager for book 3, "Flight to Freedom".

Having stayed up very late last night to finish your latest, it was well worth some lost sleep. You went over the top on this one, Mike! Not only full of suspense but with the characters from "Flight to Paradise" back once again plus all the research you put into "Flight into Darkness", your fans and new readers won't be disappointed! Glad you decided to become a writer!
I finished "Flight into Darkness". "Flight to Paradise" was good, but FID was off-the-charts fantastic!!!! I was so intrigued I couldn't put it down. As an avid reader, I must add that it has been awhile since I have read a book that I didn't want to put down. I stayed up way too late reading and didn't want it to end. 

I found "Flight into Darkness," the second novel in Mike Coe's Flight Trilogy, to be very engaging. I particularly enjoyed the well-researched historical and factual aspects of the time, the palpable and believable characters, and the intriguing plot that kept me up reading throughout the night, and into the next day. This is a real thriller that I guarantee you'll absolutely love. I certainly did!


The 1st "Flight..." of this trilogy was "...to Paradise", it was so good and very effective at introducing me to the characters, I literally became involved in their lives. The 2nd "Flight is into Darkness" was incredible. I could not put my kindle down. I am an avid reader and absolutely love when an author is able to draw me into the story and become involved with the characters and their circumstances. I didn't want this one to end. I have already got my boarding pass for the 3rd "Flight..." Just wish the the flight was ready to take off. Hurry Mike!!!


I laughed so hard when someone told me that they were amazed that I finished "Flight into Darkness" so fast because I am the world's slowest reader. When I started the book I could not put it down. I read until 2 a.m. then woke early and had to finish it before I started my day. I normally don't read books that fast but this one was different. The suspense was almost addictive. The research that went into this book is amazing! I read the first book in the Mike Coe's Flight Trilogy (Flight to Paradise) and loved it, but must say that this book is a MUST read!


"Flight into Darkness" was FANTASTIC! I read Coe's "Flight to Paradise" (book one in the FLIGHT TRILOGY), and it was excellent, but this one was amazing! Coe put an unbelievable amount of research into this story and did an outstanding job of weaving the historical facts into the story. The story touched on so many things that I can't even begin to list them all--everything from historical facts about Istanbul, Jerusalem, Rome, Greece, to facts about The Golden Gate Bridge and how it got its name, past life regression, mythology, and more. It was so tightly written that I could not put it down. It was a true suspense/thriller. I was on the edge of my seat almost the entire time.

The villain was one of my favorite characters--I grew to hate him. I also loved the development of the old characters from "Flight to Paradise" along with the new ones. The ending had a twist that I did not see coming. I loved it!

The day after I finished reading it, I was pulled back into it to re-read sections of the book. I am an avid reader and I must say that I have never done that before.

I highly recommend "Flight into Darkness". I can't wait for book three of this trilogy.


Mike just had to tell you I finished "Fight into Darkness" last week in the middle of the night!! I don't get a lot of time to read w/ 2 little ones. But I woke up in the middle of the night due to a nightmare & couldn't go back to sleep. So I thought I'd read a little-ha, wrong book to pick up!! There was no way I could put your book down in the middle of the night- it was so intense and I couldn't stop reading until I knew how it ended!!!! Thanks for a great page turner! Looking forward to your next book!
