Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can’t allow—or resist. 

Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera’s life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master’s advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out... Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera’s barn. 

River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother’s loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to... a female. A mortal female. 

Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing—a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone... especially for Lera herself. 

Power of Five is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel. 

My review:

This is the very first novel of a brand new series. And, what an introduction to the series!
Lera and her quint's story had grasped my undivided attention from the very first paragraph, so well-written and adventurous from the first 'till the last chapter, making you craving for more and urging you to get the next book right away.
It's really no wonder I read "Power of Five" in one sitting.

At this point you might be wondering what I meant by "Lera's quint" earlier. So, first things first.
Our story starts with the four male Fae mighty warriors watching over the newly (and magically) appointed part of their group. They are called a quint, which should always consist of 5 Fae members.
So, what is going to happen to their quint when magic decides that Lera, a mere 20-year-old female mortal should join them?

The short answer? A truly earth-shattering sequence of events.

The only thing that is certain is that this bond can prove dangerous not just for the mortal Lera, but for everyone, in many different ways.

At this point, I would also like to add that, although this book is a reverse harem, it surely isn't just for fans of this particular genre.
In contrast, if you like anything from fantasy and Fae, to strong, independent women and tall, brooding males, you will positively adore this novel.

It was also so well-written and -structured that it only made me more itchy to find more of the author's works and add them to my TBR pile immediately.

All in all, 5 stars for an amazing read that kept me 
glued to my kindle until "The End" and
a story I can never recommend enough.
