ARAM by A. K. Frailey is an exciting inspirational Historical Fiction. #1 in “The Deliverance” Trilogy. What a beginning! Fast paced and filled with a haunting past, new hope, pagan ways, and re-uniting a clan. What a great way to learn more on things that may have happened thousands of years ago. Young and old alike will enjoy this story, as well as people of any faith. Watch as biblical characters come to life on the pages of Aram’s story. A fantastic read!
Review by Susan Peeks author of: Saint Magnus, The Last Viking, Crusader King: A Novel of Baldwin IV and the Crusades, A Soldier Surrenders: The Conversion of St. Camillus de Lellis.
If you’re the type of reader who enjoys long, lingering epics that span several years and sweep you away to another world, then you’ll probably love A.K. Frailey’s fascinating novel “Aram”. It’s the first book in her “Deliverance Trilogy” and is truly unlike anything I’ve ever read…There is so much action, drama, humor, and even heartbreak, that I really was drawn into the story and the characters became real people to me, people I cared about, rooted for, and held my breath over as I watched their lives unfold in the pages of the book. The author’s description of the grasslands and jungles transported me to another time and place, and it was easy to lose myself in the world she created. (It even invaded my dreams once or twice!)…”
Review by: Mandy ARAM” is an amazing book! “Aram”, is like three stories in one. And in the middle the three stories become one story. It is very interesting and mysterious. Whenever something happens you can imagine how it happened. There were many times when I was reading it, that I felt like I was Aram or Ishtar or Barak.
As soon as I picked this book up, I couldn’t put I down. I was reading it for hours at a time. I was reading it until nighttime and I could barley put it down to go to bed, and the next day I was up at 6:30 am reading…
Ann Frailey is an amazing writer. This story would take a very creative person to make it. Everything just seems so real. I know that if someone told me it was a real story, I would believe them. I have already started reading the next book in the series, Ishtar’s Redemption, and it is just as good as ARAM. Her books are great independent readers for tweens (like me) and adults, but would also make great read alouds for younger children.
ISHTAR’S REDEMPTION: TRIAL BY FIRE by A.K. Frailey is another exciting inspirational Historical Fiction. A continuation of the “Aram” storyline. #2 in “The Deliverance” Trilogy, while can be read as a stand alone, I feel you Must read “Aram” first to better understand the storyline. “Ishtar’s Redemption: Trial by Fire” is another fast paced story of faith, clans, redemption, sorcery,raids,and of course of heroic rescues… Well written with vivid descriptions and engaging characters. A great read and one I believe both young and old will enjoy.
I read the first book in this series, and I really liked it. I could not wait to read the rest of the trilogy. You can also read each book by itself because there is a family tree in the book and there is also a map and prologue.
The first book was about Aram. Ishtar is Aram’s second cousin. This family is deep in Lore and religious beliefs… I liked the friendships in this book… I enjoyed the battles between good and evil, both inner battles and character battles. There is definitely more than meets the eye in this well woven story.
|Amazon Link: Neb the Great
Reviewed By Karen Pirnot for Readers’ Favorite Neb the Great: Shadows of the Past, author A.K. Frailey offers the last in the Deliverance Trilogy. Not having read the first two books of the trilogy, I did not feel at all disadvantaged in reviewing this book on its own. The book is beautifully conceptualized and developed and was easy for this reader to follow. Gizah and Ammee are expecting their first child. They have asked Ammee’s aging father to tell the tale of his ancestors so that the history might be passed to their own child. And this begins a saga which encompasses six generations. But don’t be overwhelmed by the complexity of the book. It eases the readers into the various generations. The names are easily associated with beautifully-defined characteristics which make each of the characters unforgettable.
This is a great way to end the trilogy. We went back to the beginning to understand why certain generations became who they were. This is the ultimate blood versus water debate. Do you side with your relatives and keep the status quo of evil? Maybe you should pick water, the person you married, and try to forge a new and better, more faithful, future for your descendants?
I’m giving this book a 5/5.
NEB THE GREAT: SHADOWS OF THE PAST by A. K. Frailey is another exciting inspirational Historical Fiction. The third and final installment of “The Deliverance” Trilogy… A classic good vs evil scenario. Well written. Fast paced and adventure filled. Readers both young and old will enjoy “The Deliverance” Trilogy. I truly recommend reading all three in this amazing trilogy. The characters come to life on the pages. A must read!
Neb was raised to conquer and conquer he did until he met a woman who challenged his heart and enslaved him in a way he never thought possible. From their union is born two sons, one who will change the course of history by becoming the father of a new generation which will lead to the birth of Aram while the other will descend into further corruption by embracing his grandfather’s name and his gods.
Amazon Link: Georgios I – A Hidden Heritage
Georgios: Hidden Heritage, by A. K. Frailey is one of the best examples of historical fiction I’ve read in a while. Through fictional characters, Frailey introduces historical figures and events in a way that is totally credible, while at the same time entertaining.
Her fictional characters, in fact, are sometimes even more real than those who actually existed. She makes us feel what they feel and see what they see. This is a great example of history come alive. Charles Ray
Stephen rated Georgios I Hidden Heritage 5 of 5 stars on Good Reads! Nice adventure book interlaced with sacred moments. This is the initial book in a series and it whets the appetite for more. The journey they are on is full of danger and is bound to continue as they come into contact with forces of evil in the world. Nice character development and action packed.
Barb on Good Reads said: Readers will feel that they are eyewitnesses to second-century events as they read this historical novel by A.K. Frailey.
The novel is first in a series, so be prepared for a cliffhanger ending.

Highly recommended. Ann Stock, wife, mother and OSMM member
