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. A.K. Frailey does a masterful job bringing the characters of Melchior, his family, neighbors, friends, and enemies to life. This book transports you back to the days of kings, castles, and common folk and the plot’s twists and turns will keep readers engaged from beginning to end.”  ~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, the story of Melchior and his family is 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. Melchior: Vengeance Is Mine is a sweeping historical saga, beautifully-written.” ~Carolyn Astfalk, Author of “Stay With Me, Ornamental Graces, and Rightfully Ours”

Amazon Link:  ARAM


“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. 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

IMG011“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.

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 barely 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.  Everything just seems so real.” ~Mandy                                      

Amazon Link:  Ishtar’s Redemption




“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.”

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. It eases the readers into the various generations. The names are easily associated with beautifully-defined characteristics which make each of the characters unforgettable.” ~Reviewed By Karen Pirnot for Readers’ Favorite

“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 made Honorable Mention in the 2014 Hollywood Book Festival in genre-based fiction.

“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 

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

“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.” ~Stephen on Goodreads

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

“Lovable characters from different cultures unite for high adventure during the time of Christ in this engaging, historical fiction.” ~Caroline Hopkinson

“…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, wife, mother and OSMM member

 Last of Her Kind

LOHK has been on an epic journey. I wrote the original nearly 20 years ago. Life took over with kids, homeschooling, and my husband’s losing battle with Leukemia followed. In the spring of 2014, an old friend called and insisted I revisit LOHK—the story had been on her mind all those years. A battle of wills ensued.

LOHK won.

So—how might alien life view us? Seriously. How does the human race read? An epic family squabble? A massive struggle to discover our humanity?

We shall be known by our fruit.

No answers—just possibilities….

On another front, I’m in grammar purgatory as editors and proofreaders review

Newearth: Justine Awakes—the sequel to LOHK.

The characters and I are in a battle to see who will tell this story.
I’m losing. 

My newest set of short stories are marching through history—along with their alien friends & enemies. No knowing how that will turn out.

And…I’m going to bake bread today—or I’ll be dealing with more formidable consequences than unpredictable characters….
