I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't really sure about it when I started, because I haven't been inclined to read many books about elves, but I was oh so pleasantly surprised with Frey. The elves in Frey are definitely not of the Keebler variety. Picture in your mind Legolas from Lord of the Rings, played by Orlando Bloom. Now that is the kind of elves I am talking about. Now that we have established the hotness of the elves, let's talk about the book. Frey (short for Elfreda) lived with her Aunt Fannie, who was a mean old elf, after her mother died. Frey wasn't able to do magic, as the other elves could, and she always seemed to feel out of place. She couldn't remember much of her life before she came to live in the village. Little did she know that her magic and her memories had been bound by the Council. Despite this, Frey continued to have vivid dreams. Some of her magic was beginning to return, and strengthened after she felt lead to start wearing a crystal around her neck that belonged to her mother. The Council, fearful of black magic, had it out for Frey. Enter at this point the hot elf Chevelle. Frey felt like he was strangely familiar, but yet didn't know how she knew him. He becomes her protector and her trainer, and they embark on a journey in order to take Frey back to her origins after Frey flees the village and the Council. Their journey is filled with peril, adventure, magic, fairies, and of course another hot elf or two, along with some other very memorable characters.

Melissa Wright has done a wonderful job writing this fantasy series. It is filled with magic, heartache, and adventure, with just the right amount of romance. There is quite an array of characters, and they are well developed enabling you to actually feel like you get to know and interact with each of them . I really loved getting to know Frey, Ruby, and Steed, as well as the others. This was a fast-paced, interesting, and magical story, filled with adventure, which I thoroughly enjoyed. After finishing Frey, I immediately purchased Pieces of Eight, the second book in the Frey saga, because I was so anxious to see what happened next. I then went on to read Molly, Melissa Wright's latest release, a novella which takes place after Pieces of Eight. Conception, the third book in the series is due to release later this year, and I am really looking forward to it. If you enjoy magical fantasy reads with a mix of adventure and romance, then you should enjoy Frey.

I read a lot of paranormal romance novels and found this one to be one of the worst I have read in a long time. I felt like the plot was lacking and left more questions than answers. Also, poor understanding of how the characters interact. I literally said, "What?!" when the book ended because the writting was so choppy. I barely had any idea of what had even happened at the end. Everything seemed fragmented, almost like the author knew what she wanted to write but couldn't seem to make it come out fluidly. It was a great story overall just poorly written.

    Pleasant Surprise

    Considering this book was free i half expected to be bored out of my wits within scant pages. But instead within scant pages i was completely, utterly hooked. A writing style that is as clever and unique as it is a bit awkward and a story line that manages to move both slowly and quickly. Definitely get it...after all, it's free. What do you have to lose?

    It was an interesting story line. The jump in places was not good. But I had fun reading it anyways.

    This is the story of Frey, who is an Elf without powers. At least that is what she has always thought. She has always felt alone and out of place among her people. One day her world gets turned upside down, and she is on the run. Her journey is one of self discovery as she finds out she is not entirely what she thought.

    This is quite imaginative, and I really enjoyed the adventure. So much so that now I must get the rest of the series. Magic and Elves, always a favorite read, and watching Frey be not only a bit of a brat, but also discovering why she feels the way she has for so long, which contributes to the brat attitude it turns out. I enjoyed all the characters, good, bad and indifferent to the story, and a nice change of pace from the normal Elves in hiding stories indeed. Very enjoyable!
