Ahe'ey by Jamie Le Fay is the complete collection of a series that takes place in a fantasy world segregated following a horrific war. Morgan is opinionated and strong-willed, speaking for empowerment and equality. When an event goes awry and her handsome guide saves her life, she discovers a secret other world. She doesn't believe him until another attack leads her to a magical world where women rule, and men are segregated. But with every ideal, there's a flaw. Her relationship with the dashing Gabriel becomes complicated as his role in this world is out of his control. The longer Morgan is in Ahe'ey, the more she examines her views on gender stereotypes, roles, race, and the long debate of nature versus nurture.
Jamie Le Fay calls everything out into the open, and asks the tough questions that force you to think. Morgan's voice is strong-willed, opinionated, stubborn, and clearly indicates the author's voice. Each of the characters has been scarred by fear and hatred, and is struggling to make sense of the world. Sky has come out of the war with a hatred of men, viewing them all the same as the vicious men that took her mother. Gabriel is trying to raise a better generation that can bring light to both worlds, and a sense of equality. Morgan is campaigning to break all stereotypes and bring empowerment to women above sexuality and gender. They're flawed, real, and honest characters that can be easily related to. Ahe'ey is the kind of novel society needs to read, to create inspiration and to make people think. Ahe'ey is daring, complex, and honest. A must-read novel that tackles heavy and real topics with a mix of serious and humorous, charm and tragedy.
