Review by: Virginia Candela on June 17, 2013 :
I was as taken by the book as I had hoped. As soon as I finished it I was back for the over books in the series. It is well written, but made me cry, so if you get caught up in the emotion of your book's characters don't read it on your lunch hour, especially if you wear eyeliner.

Frey tells a epic mind boggling story of her life as an elf. This is a magical tale all reader should experience.

I wasn't as taken with the book as I hoped. The beginning dragged out a bit and at times there was a lot of telling rather than showing.

Review by: Danielle Smiley on Dec. 17, 2011 :
This story is told completely from Frey's point of view. It's very effective as much of the book deals with the mystery surrounding Frey. It's extremely frustrating for a curious bird as myself, but not bad frustrating, it's more like being tickled: aggravating and fun at the same time.

As the story begins, the lack of information is just annoying. Frey is just going along with her normal daily activities giving the reader no sense of setting. I found myself re-reading the description hoping for a clue, but nope, none. Later you realize that the author purposely leaves so much ambiguity. I'm not sure how I feel about this. It made me concerned about how the rest of the book would progress.

Luckily for all involved, the rest of the book proved to be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I read this in two days because it was so hard to put down after those first few chapters. The reader is taken on this run-for-your-life quest with Frey, all the while only getting glimpses on the whys and what-fors. Poor Frey, no one will give her a freaking straight answer, and she is so determined. I loved her character. The characters who become part of her journey are also well written and likable. The whole book is so well written and this is one of those 99cent downloads!!!

So, concerning the ending... how do you feel about cliff hangers? As the book concludes, I got some of the answers for which I had been squirming, but not all. Again, I'm not sure how I feel about this. Overall it's a good thing, but it's kind of like getting a small piece of the perfect chocolate cake. Sure, you should be satisfied, but really you want more.

Again, luckily for all involved (I'd hate to have to stalk the author and bug her until she finished it), the sequel is out and is only another 99cents: The Frey Saga Book II: Pieces of Eight. As a matter of fact, I stopped mid-blog to go buy this. Really, do yourself a favor and just buy both books at the same time. It will keep you from yelling bad words at your Kindle (hee hee).

Cover Art:
This is a new cover for this book. The other's nice, but the new one is so pretty I want to squeal (perhaps I do get a little too excited about books and book art). I wish the model had been photographed in a dress matching the description in the book, but I think that would've messed up the overall coloring of the book and the title wouldn't have popped as it so nicely does here. Alas, we can't have it all, can we?
