 Kindle Link: Melchior

Britain in the fifth century was a land torn by war, while Melchior was a man torn by choice. His son is accused of murder, his daughter is forced to marry a brutal king, and his sister is driving him mad, but a prophetic vision saves him from despair.

A father will endure great trials to keep his children safe.

“Murder, mayhem, and mystery make for the perfect Medieval tale. Stir in love, passion, compassion, and the story of the burgeoning Christian Church in ancient times, and you have a book that is hard to put down…transports you back to the days of kings, castles, and common folk.”  ~Amanda Lauer, Author of the 2016 CALA award-winning novel, ”A World Such as Heaven Intended”

“If you’re a fan of Ann Frailey’s sweeping historical epics, her newest book Melchior, Vengeance is Mine, will not disappoint. The author has a rare talent of immersing readers in the past. With stunning description, realistic characters, and a humorous touch in just the right places…sure to inspire and entertain.”  ~Susan Peek, Author of “God’s Forgotten Friends: Lives of Little-known Saints” Series for Teens

A.K. Frailey paints an elaborate tapestry of breathing, bleeding characters who show us both the work of God’s hand and the far-reaching consequences of our choices, despite our perceived limitations…a sweeping historical saga, beautifully-written.” ~Carolyn Astfalk, Author of “Stay With Me, Ornamental Graces, and Rightfully Ours”

Historical Fiction & Science Fiction Blend

In ancient history, humanity struggled for survival and grappled with the purpose of our existence. One extended family traverses the course of history through ARAM, Ishtar, and Neb in a world of wild beasts, craven spirits, and noble souls. Generations later, in the first century AD, Aram’s descendant, Georgios must battle a world of dark secrets, deceptive promises, and hope renewed. Four hundred years later, Georgios’ descendant, Melchior, discovers that his vengeance is not as powerful as God’s plans in Melchior—Vengeance Is Mine.

“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 reuniting a clan. Young and old alike will enjoy this story, as well as people of any faith.  A fantastic read!”  ~My Book Addiction and More MBA

“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.” ~Susan Peek

“ARAM is an amazing book! …A like three stories in one.  There were many times when I was reading it, that I felt like I was Aram or Ishtar or Barak. Ann Frailey is an amazing writer.  Everything just seems so real.” ~Mandy                                      


“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.” ~My Book Addiction 

“I read the first book in this series, and I really liked it. I could not wait to read the rest of the trilogy. This family is deep in Lore and religious beliefs…I liked the friendships in this book…the battles between good and evil…  There is definitely more than meets the eye in this well-woven story.” ~Night Owl Reviews Top Pick

“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. I truly recommend reading all three in this amazing trilogy. The characters come to life on the pages. A must read!” ~My Book Addiction and More MBA 

“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. She makes us feel what they feel and see what they see. This is a great example of history come alive.” ~Charles Ray

“The story of Georgios captured my interest from the first page.” ~Sue Elvis

“Readers will feel that they are eyewitnesses to second-century events as they read this historical novel by A.K. Frailey.” ~Barb

“My children love this author!”  ~Anne Houseal 

GeorgiosIIA“…had me spellbound as I was taken to the ancient world through the characters, culture, and beliefs of the time. A well-developed story with a satisfying conclusion kept me turning the pages anticipating the fate of the characters and marveling at how well the development of Christian belief was intertwined with the story. Highly recommended.” ~Ann Stock

Georgios symbol-fish4

“An engaging adventure that speaks to the readers’ inner voices of good and evil.  A true lesson in bravery, loyalty, and fortitude.” ~Sally Sheilds

“Be prepared to be entertained!” ~Joanna Helm

“On this quest, Georgios, a stranger in foreign lands, encounters vicious enemies, strange gods, deception, unwelcome truths, but also true friendships, love, acceptance and inner peace. The characters are vividly real and the story is rich with events.” ~Dee Marley

“We have definite…” The Luxonian Supreme Judge in a trim human form and dressed in a dark blue robe, stirred in her seat, “…proof that you assassinated well over a hundred and fifty beings on the troop transport called…” She glanced down at a datapad, “…the Generous Sharon.” She fixed her black-eyed gaze on the lone figure standing on the floating dock with narrowed eyes.

Well over fifty delegates had gathered at Bothmal Criminal Court and sat on comfortable chairs, each tailored for a particular species. Every sentient race on the Inter-Alien Alliance Committee, including Ingots, Uanyi, Crestas, Luxonians, Bhuacs, and humans had at least one representative in attendance. No race wanted to be absent from this trial. Hundreds more sat in the court’s upper wings, savoring the spectacle while millions watched the unfolding drama on holoscreens.

The figure standing silently at the center of this hurricane of watchful emotion was a biomechanical hybrid, an android built in female form, in this case, human. Long black hair fell like a cascading waterfall down her back; her blue eyes stared straight ahead, peering into shadows. Massive cuffs, secured with powerful magnets and chains, were locked tightly about her wrists and ankles.

The android moved slightly, shifting her weight from one leg to the other. An expectant hush settled over the assembly. The silvery rattle and clanking of chains broke the quiet.

“Well?” The Supreme Judge leaned forward in her chair, fixing the prisoner with narrowed eyes and lowered brows.

“Yes.” The word was a sigh, not of regret, but of weariness or boredom. “Yes, I killed them.” She glanced up at the massive holoscreen hovering over the assembly. On its curved surface, the security recordings from the Generous Sharon played on a constant loop. “My guilt is…pretty obvious. There’s no point denying it.” A small smile curved at the corners of her lips.

Cerulean shifted to the edge of his seat and coughed lightly into his hand. “If I may ask, why?”

Pondering a moment, the android straightened. “They were in my way.” Her musical, almost bell-like voice would have been lost in the echoing chamber if not for the amplifiers.

“Justine, correct?” Cerulean folded his hands into his long robes, leaning forward.

“That is my name.”

“It was necessary, you say. Did you feel no…revulsion? Pity? Empathy? How could it be necessary to end the lives of over a hundred beings?”

Justine placed her shackled hands on the dock’s rails. “You work in this hall. Did you ask the building permission to occupy it? What its feelings were?”

Two delegates, a Cresta and a human, spoke at once.
“So, you compare yourself to an inanimate object?”
“Are you suggesting that you, as an android, cannot be sentient?” The human representative’s fingers nervously played with a datapad.

Cerulean raised his hand. “Justine, I’ve read the reports, your psychological profile.” He cocked his head. “You’ve made jokes, noted ironies—shown a full range of emotions. Are you suggesting that, like an inanimate object, you can’t feel or rather, that you had no choice?”

Justine looked at the human, turning slightly. “The Inter-Alien Commission declared that it is impossible for a robot to be sentient. That is your belief. I say nothing about my own.” She fastened her cold, blue eyes on the Cresta. “I am the product of fetal tissue and a computer. How much choice do I have?” Her lips curved mockingly.
