In this installment of the Frey Saga, Frey finds herself dealing with the return of her memory, how to control her new powers courtesy of her father, the assassination attempts against her and just what to do with Chevelle. It wasn't easy for Frey, but she proved she is worthy of the title Lord of the North and grew to be a woman who protected those she cared for.

Frey was thrown a little bit of everything in Rise of the Seven, but none (in my opinion) was as challenging as her relationship with Chevelle. Now that she remembered everything that was between the two of them, she was leary of moving forward for fear she would bond with him and cost them both. Every decision she made came at a cost to the two of them, but Frey made them believing they were for the greater good of the people of the North and for Chevelle himself. In the end though, I think Frey made the right decision in pushing those worries aside and taking her relationship with Chevelle to the place it was meant to be. They work better as a unit and that was proven in the final battle.

The storyline was well placed and I enjoyed the development of each of the characters and their roles in Frey's fight against the council. They have all proven, at one point and time, that they deserve to be in the honored role and her guards and it was nice to see how the rag tag group has come together.

I'm looking forward to more in the Frey Saga.
