Frey by Melissa Wright Book Summary

Nothing is as it seems.

Frey's life is a lie. She doesn't remember being bound from magic. She didn't intend to discover this dangerous secret, to get entangled in Council business. But she did.

And now she's on the run.

With the aid of a stranger, she discovers a world beyond the elves who bound her. But it's a world of shadows and dark magic, a world she's been warned not to trust. The farther she strays, the more she finds a forgotten past. As she fights to reclaim her true identity, Council trackers hunt her down.

If they find her, she will burn.

The stranger offers her a way out, but it's a path of no return. How do you know who to believe when you don't even know who you are?

Frey (Melissa Wright) Book Reviews

Pretty Good for All AgesI'm not sure what age group the target is, but I'm 30-something and found this an easy and enjoyable read. Didn't completely care for the ending, the end developed a little too quickly. But I look forward to the next book.Score: 5/5

CaptivatingThe ending left me feeling a little lost, but it’s a good book. I would definitely recommend it..Score: 4/5

A Lot of NothingThis book is the perfect example of what I dislike about first person. Since the narrator knows nothing, neither do we. I wanted to like Frey, but she was alternately timid and angry, two characteristics I have no respect for. And then to suddenly kill when she doesn’t have a clue what is the truth or a lie? I was done with her (although I finished the book). A perfect example of what a first book in a series should be, I urge you to start with book two. Although, I won’t be reading on because there’s nothing here to compel me. The hints at an interesting story world are not enough for me to invest time in money to discover if there is something there or not..Score: 3/5

AHHHHHHHTHE BOOK WAS AWESOME!!! Super interesting storyline and many unexpected plot twists. Does not have any ‘scenes’ if you get my drift. Recommend this book, and the rest of the series as well!!!!.Score: 5/5

Light and ineffrctiveInteresting concept of magic and redemption, told in a disjointed patchwork of romance, dreams, fighting, and a journey (of course) North. The writing is unfortunately weak, and the characters beyond the protagonist are cardboard. I enjoyed the story far more than the book..Score: 2/5

FreyI made it halfway through this book and was terribly disappointed and couldn’t even continue because the plot was so slow and confusing and boring.

Only half toldI had high hopes for becoming immersed in yet another epic full of magic and mystery and action and adventure, but I am struggling to convince myself the story will come if I just keep on reading. Well, I am half way through, and have yet to find substance. There have been incidences and encounters and questions, but absolutely no directive or answers. The characters are only minimally developed. Frey is still only a partially sketched outline. And the story feels more abstract than epic. I'm surprised the editor allowed this to publish without more substance. Readers need substance..Score: 2/5

Okay young adult adventureA free novel most appropriate for younger adults. Has somewhat a high school quality. The author hints at Frey's hidden potential but she is never empowered in the story. She is dependent and protected. The truth of who she is kept from her. Dialogue between her and the romantic interest is rare, which interferes with the development of the relationship and keeps things "survacey" Most disturbing is the practice by one female character to repeatedly drug Frey against her will, yet they remain friends..Score: 3/5

Book oneI enjoyed this book, understanding that background is needed in the development of the series. Poor Frey is an incomplete and shunned child. Our good author begins to fill in the pieces as we stand alongside her in this story. Thankfully, we are treated to new mysterious characters, new environs and vistas as she departs her familial village, taking to the forest and the trails with her dubious friends. Growing emotionally stronger as she fills in the gaps of her life, she also becomes aware of her "special gifts" in this new land of Elves and Humans. Looking forward to the next book..Score: 4/5

Tumultuous, magical funThis is a good book. It is well written, the characters are developed and the plot is somewhat deep and a little intriguing, enough to keep you mildly excited to read the next page, and the next book. The main character is a teenage girl that fits many stereotypes of teenage girls in fantasy books (been seen as weak but is super powerful, falls deeply in love with random hot guy she just met, accidentally hurts someone with her power and runs away. Pretty standard), but has enough depth as a character to not be boring. The supporting characters are pretty typecast as well, we have dangerous vodka aunt who acts as caretaker for orphan main, mysterious hot stranger (Two of them!), mother figure mentor, and dangerous and shady government. As is pretty standard for these kind of books, all her trouble starts when she finds her true powers and runs away, and a large scale, world exploring adventure starts from there. While I have many criticisms of the book, it’s very well written, the magic system is well designed and well written, with the exception of the “ancient language” and how they handle spells vs pure magic. This entire setup is almost identical to that found in Christopher Paolini’s “Inheritance Cycle” and the author doesn’t even try to hide that. However, no characters are clearly copied from anything, just stereotypes. For the YA age group, this is an enjoyable read and I respect the author for being able to tap into this much teenage angst, panic, regret and self-doubt to write the character. Overall, good, but not the best, 4/5, read at your own digression..Score: 4/5

FortniteGood.Score: 5/5

Do not torture yourself with this.If you prefer your main character to have depth, do more than sleep, and the book to have a distinguishable plot, do not read this book.The main character sleeps through most of the book. When she manages to stay awake, she must go on the run for...reasons. When they ride horses, they gallop everywhere for hours on end (horses don’t work that way). After sleeping some more, she, never having held a sword before, practices once with a sword against a master swordsman and not only holds her own but impresses him. Then she sleeps some more. She gathers a ragtag crew who are loyal to her for some reason, although she does nothing to earn it. Then she sleeps some more. She finds out a little about her history. She sleeps some more. Suddenly, she’s queen. The book ends. Yes. It is literally that bad..Score: 1/5

Part of a book...This short novel should have included the next five or six in the series and called it a decent sized book. Instead, it followed the main character through a lot of places and headaches as she was “blocked” from knowing who she was. She is led by possible friends who will not disclose their secrets because she has to figure it out for herself. At the end, she probably has the identity she was searching for (I long to tell you who she is and save you the trouble). Then the book is over and you’re supposed to buy the next book. Ummm, no. Nice cover art, though..Score: 2/5

FreyFrey lives with her aunt...not a pleasant time for either of them. She was a young elf who couldn’t do any magic...I actually take that back. She could produce fire. At least she could produce a small flame...enough to light a candle, or light a flame in the fireplace. She loved when she got to go to Junnie’s house which was on the other side of the village, in a tree. She was sent there every day to study and try to learn magic. But usually it was boring reading...but it was away from her own home. Actually her aunt’s home. You see, her mother had died somehow, but no one talked about her. It was so frustrating to not know anything about her. One day she sees a tall, handsome elf male go to Junnie’s house. She tries to sneak in and overhear their conversation to discover who he is. Needless to say she gets caught. They’re elves, remember? And things go downhill from there. Her adventures start when she is called before the Council because she pulled a trick on another young girl from the village. Anyway, she decides to run away, only to be followed by the same elf male, who decides to take her away on a trip through the forest. As they travel, she learns he was sent after her to be her watcher. She just knows he hates her! He treats her rather rudely, and tries to make her practice her magic...what little there is of it! Come along with her on her journies, as she learns more about the elf that she is somehow drawn to, where they are going and some of the missing information about her Mother and Father..Score: 4/5

Great potential. Poor Execution.I don't know what it was about this book, but it always felt a little too disconnected. Perhaps the pacing was too fast. Nothing ever really felt like it flowed from moment to moment. Perhaps expanding on each event just a little would have made the difference to me. I enjoy just about everything in this book, characters and setting and lore. But the writing made it a chore to read. I really wanted to love this book, but I was never drawn in well enough to forget the real world..Score: 3/5

Missing so many thingsIf you’re looking for a quick read, this is the book. Suspense wise, the author did a decent job but this seems to be counteracted with the sexuality of the protagonist. Not really sure what her personality was aside from the worst type of rebellious and eavesdropper. The plot was lacking, not really sure what was happening and a lot of that is because of the protagonist’s perspective, which was just all over the place. I feel like the memory issue doesn’t get resolved and this impacts the ending badly. Stereotypes are everywhere. Perhaps this is due to being the author’s initial works that the absence of substance proves to be process work. I haven’t read their recent works so I give this 2 stars instead of one..Score: 2/5

Targeted towards tweenage girls I suspectThe storyline was a bit slow paced for me but interesting enough to keep me reading to the end. I didn't realize before what other reviewers meant when they say the heroine sleeps a lot - she faints a lot in crucial events to avoid having to explain what has happened and keep the mystery. Also a lot of dream sequences. This gets old after the first few times. As a male who has read a lot of the classic fantasy novels where the plot is basically: farm boy discovers he has magic powers, saves the world and saves the damsel in distress, I thought it would be refreshing to read a fantasy story about a female protagonist, written by a female author. I was disappointed that there wasn't a strong female lead - she spends a lot of time being saved by the male characters and then fainting. But I am probably being too critical, I'm sure the lead will develop into a strong character over the next few books in the series. I think the fault lies with me. I am not the target audience, it will appeal most (from my experience of nil) to young teenage girls..Score: 3/5
