    I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't really sure about it when

    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.

    Caught my liking.

    I dowloaded this book for free, trying to find some interesting books to add to my collection, and this was it. Though I'm not all for the extensive narrative throughout books, being more of a dialog person, I found it good and easy to sit and read. I actually read through it instead of skipping boring paragraphs. So good, I had to buy the second book.

    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.

    First, I’d like to say that I was in love with the cover,

    First, I’d like to say that I was in love with the cover, it isn’t really great, but the simple design, the lettering, the color, it just makes it so delicious to a hungry reader’s eyes..:D

    At first, the book started slow for me, but as the story progresses and the information are getting clear, I found myself in an unending ladder of excitement and twists.

    The author weaved this story wonderfully. The descriptions are vivid. Ms. Wright’s writing style is something I never experienced before, she makes the story a bit complicated and after a few pages, you would say, “so, that’s it!!!, that’s the reason!”. It’s a great book, when a reader is always thinking what would happen next and this is what happened to me with “Frey”.

    The characters are developed well and really likable. I could definitely feel with them. I enjoyed reading each of their backstories which lead me to understand and loved them more. They are the kind of characters which would leave marks in your heart even long after you read the book.

    I loved Freya/Elfreda a lot. Although I think this is a weakness of the book since the heroine (I think) is not strong enough to be considered a heroine. She always faints and rely on others to solve the problems. Meanwhile I feel her pain, her sufferings and I root for her, would be by her side til the end of her journey..:D >I wish to see her become the strong and great heroine that she really is in the next books..

    The story is fast-paced; wherein the story never lies low, there’s always something to uncover and be excite about.

    I was frustrated, saddened, thrilled, angered and hopeful. This is a roller-coaster ride I wouldn’t dare miss out. I am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series..:)
    Packed with fantasy; elves, fairies and magical powers, Frey is a book I’d highly recommend!

    Where is the story headed?

    I enjoyed the novel but the development of the story is taking too long. Most of the characters are in a stage where you wonder what they are doing on this quest. I would have loved to know at least from one character why they needed to run and protect Frey before the end of the first book.

    I read a lot of books and the ending on this was unclear, disjointed, and left me wanting more. The premise of the book was different and could have been more promising. But it was free, and I did enjoy the character's, at times they made me laugh. I will not be reading anymore of the series though. (ljb)

    Well worth reading. I may just have to buy the next one. Could use a little editing, but don't let that stop you.

    Wasn't expecting much since it was free, but was pleasantly surprised.  The pacing was great and kept the story moving.  The answers are hinted at, but we're kept in the dark along with the main character which keeps it interesting.  Really a great read and am looking forward to buying the next in the series just to see where it all ends up.

    Only reason I gave it 4 stars it that it's not quite to epic proportions of storytelling (save the 5's for Harry Potter and Ender's Game).  Very enjoyable though.
