E L James introduces the characters readers have come to love, in her third book in the Fifty Shades series, Fifty Shades Freed, as Mr. and Mrs. Grey. Throughout the previous two novels readers have formed a strong connection with Christian and Anastasia: a bond that will be challenged as the newlyweds struggle to find their "happily ever after."
As readers delve into the pages of Fifty Shades Freed, they see more of what drives Christian and why he feels as if he must protect Ana from the world they live in. As plots to ruin the happiness of Mr. and Mrs. Grey are revealed, their relationship hangs in the balance. Readers have a chance to see Christian and Ana as a singular unit, creating a thicker bond from the separate connections readers have formed with both of them.
The plot promises the ups and downs of marriage, even though for people like Mr. Grey and his family, they are much more extreme. While it seems someone is trying to sabotage the Grey family, Christian must learn to rely on Anastasia, as his wife. And as all readers know, that won't be an easy feat for Mr. Grey and, as expected, Anastasia will always take things into her own hands.
Whereas the previous two novels were about the characters themselves, trying to love each other for who they are inside. This novel pairs them together, facing the cruelty that is the world around them. Their success depends on them depending on each other and fighting against that which threatens to tear them apart.
Fifty Shades Freed is the story after the end, and readers will love what E L James has set Christian and Ana up against. Definitely a must read for all of the Fifty fans.
