This book was more epic than I ever imagined. The story takes place in New York City and also in the land of Ahe'ey. The descriptions and the people of Ahe'ey were breathtakingly beautiful. The people were broken into four tribes and each one was the best at their craft. There was so much history as well as intrigue in the land, it was a wonderful journey learning about the people.

Morgan was a strong woman's leader and when she was in danger, Gabriel came to help. He was not only beautiful, but

Got a copy of this book via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

This is a true fantasy novel. The world and people living there all came out of the mind of the writer. This is a world that's unique, I've never read anything like it. The story was hard to understand at some points, but after a good explanation, I could appreciate Ahe'ey.

The problem with writing woman-centered, feminist, or matriarchal texts is that we don't actually have a lot of good examples to pull from. Our art and archetypes have been filtered through millennia of misogyny, so that all the storylines, tropes, topoi, cliches, and everything else that goes into making a novel have a base setting of "sexist." And if we want to flip things around and discuss what a matriarchal culture might actually look like, we don't have a lot to work with: while there were ...more

What can I say, this book is a masterpiece. I'd only read the small excerpt before even cracking it open and wasn't sure what to expect. I was captured and couldn't quit reading until it was finished in one series.

Le Fay writes with ultimate precision. Her character development is extraordinary. You connect with every major character in the book. You cry for them, cheer for them and you can't wait to read on. The world that Le Fay has created is beautiful and original. What scared me was how clo

Hey Guys,

I have a lovely treat for you. So you may have noticed my cool little sign. I have recently joined NetGalley to help me to do my reviews and also give you guys some great books.

I loved this book by Jamie Le Fay. I loved the main characters as well as the storyline. This book also makes you think about the injustices that are currently prevalent in our world. I loved the strong male and female leads as well and got from this book that you can still be a leader without forcing people to comply with autocratic decisions. I also loved the setting of Ahe'ey and hope to see more about the people of Ahe'ey in a next book soon.
A great fantasy to read that keeps you interested

Morgan is a woman who fights for women’s rights. She is very well known and has people following her all over the world to hear her speak at different functions. Morgan doesn’t really trust men but when she meets the very gorgeous Gabriel he just may change her mind and the way she feels about men or about one anyways. Gabriel is not only attractive but he is addicting as well. Morgan can’t seem to keep her eyes off him and she acts just like a school girl whenever she is near him.

Ahe'ey by Jamie Le Fay is a fascinating paranormal fantasy. This novel contains a lot of strong themes that are brilliantly woven into an enjoyable read. I loved the characters. Jamie Le Fay definitely knows how to write a book that sucks readers into her fictional worlds. Entertaining from the start. The main characters, Morgan and Gabriel have ways of pulling me further into their story. Powerfully written. Excitement, adventure, intriguing and romantic too. Ahe'ey has it all.

Jamie Le Fay astonishes us with a civilization that tries to demote men because of their flaws and anger of wanting their own freedom after being wronged by the royals. The land of Ahe’ey must protect the purity of the privileged and in doing so marriages are expected among relatives to keep the bloodline at its premium.

As the men in Ahe’ey struggle for equal rights, Morgan is inspiring women in the world to accept their flaws and not to be valued only for their beauty. But she realizes she judg

I had to DNF this book. I got about 20% in and just couldn't force myself to keep reading. I tried, oh I tried to get into it. The reviews in GoodReads and Amazon are mostly glowing, and the subject matter seemed right up my alley.

The biggest challenge I had is that although I love the idea of weaving in the feminist/gender studies points that the author seems to be making, so much of it was so on-the-nose that I had problems buying into the characters and plot around them. The world needs more

I cannot think of a better introduction to Le Fay's wonderful writing style than Ahe'ey. I instantly fell in love with her imaginative and detailed descriptions and her subtle way of stating her political opinions.

Le Fay deserves praise for her characterization skills. Each one felt so real that I was able to understand their motives and ideals as easily as I can understand my own. The same can be said for her world building abilities. Not only does Le Fay bring a whole new world to life, she e

Ahe'ey is an enjoyable and compelling read. Jamie Le Fay demonstrates her strength as a writer through a range of creative ideas, fantastic world building, intriguing characters, and social commentary. The world of Ahe'ey and magic was breathtaking and filled with intrigue. Furthermore, it was nice to see a quality depiction of feminism (I walked in with worries of 'misandrist-feminism'), with consideration not just of the oppression of females, but also ways in which males can be discriminated ...more

I jumped on this book based on the recommendations, but I wasn't in love with the execution.

It's an epic fantasy about superbeings who live amongst us human on Earth, but the verbose descriptions between the human realm and the Ahe'ey were exhausting, to me. The complete collection here was about 200,000 words, and I think we could have done without a third of them. Plus, honestly, I was put off by the mundanity of it all.

I got this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. So I'm going to be honest.

There were a lot of good intentions here, but this book was just plain bad. I love fantasy, high fantasy, the creation of whole worlds and characters. I was really interested in this book based on the description and the rest of the reviews being so positive. So when this is what I got, I was really disappointed. And I don't think I have been this close to DNF-ing a book in years. Like I said, there were

This is a story about an uber-human race that lived pre-history, but were almost wiped out by a cataclysmic flood on their island in mid-Atlantic. They have since lived in an alternate universe, directing and sometimes interbreeding with humans. Their contact point with our earth is an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Their society in this refuge has become stratified, adopting some of the more detrimental elements of human societies through the ages, especially the creation of a caste ...more

“Ahe’ey” is a new novel by debut author Jamie Le Fay. It follows Morgan, proud feminist and progressive, and her infatuation and eventual entanglement with the mysterious Gabriel. It’s a fantasy novel with a strong political slant, that miraculously manages to do both things well.

The novel succeeds by placing the tumultuous, patriarchal U.S. that we all know alongside the fantastical realm of Ahe’ey, a violent and war-torn matriarchy rampant with misandry and class-ism. By showing both sides of

Okay, so this was my first time reading and reviewing a self-published book for NetGalley; I have to thank Jamie Le Fay again for allowing me to have that opportunity to read and review Ahe’ey.
That being said, I could not finish this book. The story got off to a very confusing start; in fact, from the very first pages of this book, I felt as though things were moving way too fast for my taste. I do love when an

The best method of showing something to someone is letting them to experience that on their own. Because people understand only what they can relate to, that is well-known fact.
Ahe’ey is a book in which the author tries to do exactly that. We have main protagonist, a woman named Morgan. She is well, somewhat similar to most of us, because most of us sometimes feel insecure, uncertain and in contradiction; with each other and with ourselves.

Ahe'ey stands tall as a smart, full bodied fantasy written by the obviously talented Jamie Le Fay. Touted as a feminist's dream of a novel, the 'I am woman, hear me roar' vibe runs deep without being obnoxious. When you reflect on the fact that this manages to be a girl power work and a romance, you begin to see how insightful Le Fay writes. Piled on feminism and romance, Ahe'ey also mixes bits of action, fantasy, and paranormal in and still it doesn't feel overdone.

Still trying to figure out how to pronounce, “Ahe’ey”....just me? Ok.

I love that this is a self declared feminist book. Not that I think more novels need to declare themselves “feminist” but it just shows that it is ok and you can still be successful. The main character, Morgan, is multidimensional. She takes on multiple characteristics that traditionally, novels and movies stray away from. Which I love and is much more realistic. It shows that a woman can be smart, in love, powerful, and insecu

For she who has strength will lead valiantly.

It’s kind of refreshing to see such a strong female lead in the fantasy world. I love that this story grabs the bull by the horns and addresses so many feminine issues, while still remaining entertaining and interesting. For me it started fairly slow but it picked up quickly and fast became a book I didn’t want to put down! I wanted to see what was in store for Morgan next and how she would handle it.

From as young as I can remember, I have soothed myself to sleep by imagining epic stories of heroes, heroines, sorceresses, dragons, angels, and demons. I based my stories on the books and movies I was watching and the narratives that moved and inspired me.

I was as excited and delighted with Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre as I was with Battlestar Galactica (the original TV series). The Mists of
