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 herself 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.

    Very well paced&truly entertaining. Too short 🙄
  • Book one

    I 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.

    Loved it
  • Frey book one

    By Djahant
    I really enjoyed reading this book. But it did not answer any questions during the reading. It's slightly frustrating. Like watching the show Lost. I don't want to purchase the second book if it follows that same pattern. I was definitely glued to it while reading it. I would recommend. But be prepared to be kept wondering what is really going on.
  • Okay young adult adventure

    By Jifieurididi
    A 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.
  • Hoping to see more from author

    By EveryVillainIsLemons
    I am a little picky with my literature but I actually really enjoyed this book. The plot could have been a little expanded in some parts to better explain things or give background but overall, it was a great read.

    Beware... Read once and u will buy the rest gratefully.
  • Choppy and Vexing

    By JuniAvera
    Each scene could use four or more extra pages to fully fill out the concept, and to push the story forward while creating dynamic and likable characters. The author relies heavily on tired character tropes, and uses lazy and ill thought out scene transitions to propel the story forward and leave the reader with a sense of mystery (the constant fainting and falling asleep). The author doesn't take the time to set up a background, or a plausible setting, leaving the reader with a confusing and unfulfilling story.
  • Hard to Read

    By DH Loves Reading
    This book has great potential. The idea is good, but the book itself it really hard to read. The author rights in a way that is hard to understand. I also couldn't connect with the characters. I never have a hard time reading books, this was the first.
