Pieces of Eight
The only issue I had with the sequel was the aggrivation you feel for Frey because she is continually kept in the ...more
As Frey's memory continues to come back in pieces, she's still plagued with blackouts, which also tend to happen after a new revelation about the past is given to her. So as she deals with ...more
Frey is still an outcast. Struggling to regain memories and being assaulted with blackouts here and there, she can't hope to help in the fight against the council members that bound her.
It felt like nothing happened in this novel for the first 40% or so. They journeyed out, it got too dangerous, and they returned to the castle. Much of this novel ...more
Holy cow, people! I didn't think Melissa Wright could possibly add anymore wonderful intrigue and complexity to Frey's life, and I was so freakin' wrong. Yay for being wrong!!!
To be succinct (yes, a rarity I know), Pieces of Eight is just more: more action, more mystery, more ...more
I enjoyed the story line but only gave the book three stars because parts of the story get confusing and seem inconsistent. The main character, Elfreda, is fairly whiny and childish which grows a bit annoying. Despite this, I still enjoyed the story and want to finish the series. Elfreda is undergoing a frustrating and painful experience that will completely change her outlooks. By the end she has learned some hard truths that make everything come more into focus. Overal ...more
These are good stories, well told, with very good character development, Freya's blacking out every single time she starts getting a piece of her life's puzzle or her love interest holds her, gets old, particularly after two books of it. Yes, I will read Books 3 and 4, as long as she is allowed to become the strong character she's supposed to have been all along. ...more
I enjoyed the first book but the one was a snooze fest. Not in the boring sense but because all she did was pass out and faint. I was so tired of Frey fainting, sleeping and blacking out I almost put the book down. I'm not sure how they didn't just leave her. I'm sad to say I won't be reading the next book. I'm glad she got her memories back and realized who Chavelle was and appreciated all her other friends. ...more
I did not particularly like the first book. Everything was shrouded in mystery and questions that even after reading the last part of the first book, I still felt clueless! It was frustrating but it made me curious enough to read the 2nd book. And wow what a revelation! I now want to know more about Freya and who she was as Elfreya.
There were several places in this book where the history or backstory were being explained that I had to read several times and still didn't quite get it. It was confusing.
There were grammatical and spelling errors and I found the book slightly disappointing with Elfreda's constant passing out.
Overall, it's a good premise and story. ...more
Finally we get to where we're headed in the last book. Not an awesome story, nor one with notable action, rather a transition from the beginning to the next arc in the series. A good read, a fair romance and a bit better worldview... now we should get to some butt kicking heroine stuff and maybe some good romance... ...more
The story of Frey continues in this, the second book of the series.
After revealing a dark past, Frey is forced to join with a group of strangers whose pasts seem to intertwine with her own. She struggles to regain her memories, her full power, only to find there is more danger on the other side. And now, there is no turning back.
