2017 Review:

Rise of the Seven is just as epic, just as bombastic and just as kick ass as you want it to be. Melissa Wright brings the best elements of Frey and Pieces of Eight, while bringing something new and unexpected at every turn. When you think everyone's safe, another danger appears for Frey and her team of Elf Avengers to overcome. With Frey's memories returned, the strength of her past mixed with the humility of her most recent adventures, she is an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Lord Asher's manipulations in her life continue despite the Seven's attempts to stop them and bring peace to the North. With the welcome addition of Veil and the Fey, in a very Goblin King entrance, both Dark and Light Elves are thrown into chaos. Will Frey uphold her bargain with the Fey Prince or will it be open war? Destruction and death surround all sides of the conflict, the likes of which may ravage the land and ridding the world of magic forever.

2012 Review:

At last, Wright’s much anticipated final installment in her Frey trilogy has arrived with a bang. RoTS shines in plentiful, often garish colors, pairing the grit with the gumption of a fully matured kick-butt heroine. One of the things I admired most while reading this was the added depth of Freya’s character. With a return of her memories at last, the character is given several new dimensions that all flow seamlessly together. The pages turn like a well-oiled machine, now that we have come to know the company so well, allowing for even more action. The addition of fey to this world was a delightful surprise and only added to the broad spectrum of the world Wright has created. Magic abounds with intrigue and at the heart of the novel is Chevelle’s unwavering love for Freya and their long history together. And in the end, all loose ends are tied and wrapped in a rocking package that you’ll want to pull apart and read over and again.
