Freya Holm is smart, quick-witted, and an Alva—a paranormal species with the ability to fly. In a bid for a normal life outside of family expectations, she moved across the country. But within a few days of arriving in a small California town, she finds herself fighting over the last bag of lentils with an attractive but ill-tempered werewolf named David.

The purpose of the YA or NA categories is to capture the audience of young/new adults who are experiencing new things for the first time along with the narrator. I think YA is more PG 13-17 where as NA has a little bit more violence and romance. (less)

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Freya's Inferno was a fun and enjoyable read. The reasons why I decided I had to read it? The lentil encounter mentioned in the blurb. Lucky for me the book actually started with that scene and it was a great starting scene. Freya's Inferno is filled with dry humor and fun plot and quirky characters. And while I enjoyed it, I just never felt fully connected to it. Like there was something missing, but there isn't any flaw in the story I can reall

Freya’s Inferno was a fun read with a unique premise. The book was well-written, the prose professional, and each scene flowed logically into the next. The characters were interesting and fleshed out, and I enjoyed Freya’s heart and dry wit. I loved that she was a science teacher, and being a science/math geek myself, I appreciated the bad science/math jokes. :)

I really liked the way Dante’s Inferno was used as a plot device. The world building was imaginative and worked well in the modern setti

I received a copy of this book directly from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I have mixed feelings about Freya's Inferno by Sonja Bair. The book started strong. I loved the humor of the main character fighting over a bag of lentils with a werewolf. The writing was clear, fairly easy to follow, and didn't contain a lot of errors. I wasn't drawn to the story or the world-building in particular and didn't have the feeling of "I can't put this down!", but it was going all right

Freya’ s Inferno, the first book in Sonja Bair’s Winging It series (can I just say how awesome a name that is for a series? I do love a good play on words), is a book that pleased me for so many reasons.

First and foremost, Freya is the narrator and that is truly a blessing. The narration is in first person and this really allows a reader to become acquainted with Freya on a more intimate level. We hear each and every one of her thoughts and her sarcastic, mischievous and witty personality are co

3.5 stars. I loved the characters and Freya's lighthearted voice at the beginning. But the tone of the story stayed far too light for the subject matter, and too much was told to the reader instead of being actively shown to us. Also, a number of the supernaturals' powers felt like they'd been added to the mix without deep thought about how those powers linked to each race's innate characteristics.

I've read enough fantasy that I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of new entrants into the supernatural realm. I was also pleased with the author's sly sense of humor. I suppose this might be YA or NA, given that it's about a young woman, but I wouldn't have thought to class it as such until I saw a question about that. ...more

Freya’s Inferno by Sonja Bair was an exceptionally fun read. Much like a TV series waiting to be renewed, this book ends with manageable cliffhangers to entice you into the second installment without berating you to continue reading. The spice of the characters and unique supernatural species makes this book a winner for me.

First and foremost, Freya is the bee’s knees. Written in first person perspective, we receive the bulk of her attitude. She is a fiery little bird whose kindness is infinite,

Freya's Inferrno

Fun, funny, more than a little strange but good plot, good characters and without graphic sex as well. The missing words in more than a few places are annoying but meaning can be inferred so not too much interruption in the narrative.

You know what I love..?? A strong female character named Freya who has wings and a dry sense of humor. Throw in two hot guys (one is a werewolf I love werewolves) and you got yourself a great New Adult (NA) novel! I thought the premise of this story about a small town with a few supernaturals (supe) getting taken over by a crazy supe trying to turn it into hell was good. This kept the pace of the book flowing for me, so the pace wasn't fast nor boring. The mystery is the main focus of the story ...more

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

I loved this book! It was fun plus it had enough mystery and action to keep me turning the pages. Freya is such a strong female lead character and I kind of want to be her best friend. I can't wait to see what happens with these characters and really hope the author is planning a second book... I want to know who Freya is going to end up with. I personally wouldn't be able to decide, either - at times I felt like she would be

This is a good supernatural read. I enjoyed learning about the different species and creatures and found that very refreshing. Bair has talent with creating interesting beings.

What I really loved about this novel was the protagonist, Freya. Her humour was very fun! At first, I will admit, she seemed unlike someone I could relate to, but as the plot progressed I came to like her more and more.

The book really starts to pick up about a third of the way into the plot, so I found the pacing a little

The best of paranormal fantasy mixed with reality.

This book is imaginative, unique, lively, charismatic (love the characters!), romantic, mysterious and action filled too!

If you like paranormal books, you should try this one.

An amazing journey for right and justice in this fantasy tale of werewolves and other paranormal beings. The hunt is on for Giia and the carnage she does. Loved this book and you need to read it too.

Sonja Bair never expected to be an author. As long as she can remember she has created stories in her head, but as far as writing a book- that was something only to be done by Professional Authors. Yet one day she found herself writing, then writing some more. And about a year later, much to her surprise, she had written a book.

When not writing books, Sonja is a mother to two beautiful daughters,
