Unaware she's been bound from using magic, Frey leads a small, miserable life in the village where she's sent after the death of her mother. But a tiny spark starts a fury of changes and she finds hersef running from everything she's ever known.

Hunted by council for practicing dark magic, she is certain she's been wrongfully accused. She flees, and is forced to rely on strangers for protection. But the farther she strays from home, the more her magic and forgotten memories return and she begins to suspect all is not as it seems

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!
