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...
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.

    Unusual premise

    I really enjoyed this book. It's not your average werewolf/vampire book. I'm going to keep reading this series.

    Great Story

    I am already in love with this book & I am only halfway through it. Freya is the type of character that I love. She will make you laugh, cringe & keep coming back for more. If you like fantasy YA novels, I HIGHLY suggest reading this series.

    Good

    Really enjoyed this book, so much that I have already read the second and am eagerly awaiting the next one. I loved Freya's internal narration. Especially the Grrr...you'll see. Interesting side note - the spelling and grammer were fine but each time the author used 'lie' when she should have used 'lay'. Made for odd reading sometimes. Anyway,get them - they're great.

    Loved it.

    This was free and captivating from the first page, though the protagonist comes off as very very young and her age or maturity is never mentioned. I am seriously considering getting the next book.

    Great Read!

    Really interesting story that I enjoyed quite a bit. Wasn't what I expected form reading the overview, tho the overview wasn't misleading. New spin to the Fey story, full of surprises! By the time I finished it I was off to the store front to get the second book! Would recommend as a fun read!

    Wonderfully touching story of a young elf remembering her tragic past. It wiuld be so easy to throw in the suprise ending, but in the last 100 pages of a 466 page book, the suprises shoot at you like a machine gun and summons it all together in a fantastic ending, in this first book of the Freya trilogy. I highly recommend.
