Thirty-four-year-old Morgan is a dreamer, change maker and art lover. She is a feisty, slightly preachy, romantic feminist full of contradictions and insecurities. Morgan uncovers a world where women have the power, and where magic is no longer just a figment of her wild imagination. Sounds like a dream, but it may, in fact, turn into a nightmare. The world of the Ahe'ey challenges and subverts her views about gender, genes, and nature versus nurture. The strong and uninvited chemistry between her and the dashing Gabriel makes matters even more complicated. His stunning looks keep short-circuiting her rational mind.

4 Stars

 

The Ahe’ey Series by Jamie Le Fay is a tale of paranormal romance that takes the reader on a fantastical journey while encompassing the narrative in subject matter heavily anchored in our own political reality. This is a book (series of episodes) with something for everyone, and many readers will be able to comfortably find a home here. There is a special attention paid to feminist ideals that this reader thinks will resonate most powerfully with younger female readers, but readers of other demographics should not be turned off by this, as the adventure that unfolds is chock full of suspense, allure and strong characters that attend to heroic quests while simultaneously tackling real human issues.

Readers should be aware that throughout the majority of the story, the narrative is very much in flux. This is a book that reflects the current political landscape, and as such the characters, motives, and landscape can change seemingly instantaneously. Fortunately, the driving idea does not change, and this results in a book that powerfully reflects one author’s view of modern soceity – albeit through the lens of fantasy. Morgan, the main character, is a foil of herself, and full of all the conflict that makes great heroes. While she is well-drawn and interesting, some of the secondary characters can fall into stereotypical roles. As this book can be viewed as political commentary, this doesn’t take away from the intent, but could draw the reader’s attention away from Morgan’s journey.

The world that Le Fay crafts is intriguing and desirable, but like any envisioned utopia has sustainability issues. The author doesn’t shy away from discussing complex matters, and dedicated readers will be rewarded with an entertaining story that also sends a message. This book isn’t for everyone, but I think most readers will be able to get into the story, and at the very least learn something, from giving The Ahe’ey Series a shot. I give the collected series 4 Stars.
