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.

Also in this series: Mistake of Magic, Trial of Three, Lera of Lunos
NA Review My Thoughts

Power of Five is the first book in the new adult fantasy romance series by the same name by an author that is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Alex Lidell has written some amazing young adult action/adventure series, but Power of Five is by far my favorite of hers! Guys, this book sent me into a spiraling book hangover. So much so, after reading 3 other books that I thought would help me move past my obsession of Power of Five, I had to go back and re-read Power of Five a mere 3 days after I binge read it the first time. I am so in love with all of the characters. Power of Five is by far my favorite read of 2018. I am talking top of the top!

Power of Five is a fae fantasy and it is the story of a group of four elite fae warriors, who have been searching for years for the fifth member that will complete their warrior quint. They are all shock to find it is a human girl named Lera. Lera and the four warriors- River, Coal, Tye, and Shade, set off on an adventure through the fae realm to try and sever the bond that links all members of the Quint together. But of course, across this journey they get to know Lera and it is so so good. I don’t want to say much more except that I am completely addicted to each and every one of the five characters. I can’t pick a favorite, I just love the way they are all so different and they all complement each other.

There are plenty of secrets and magic galore and tons of sexy, awesome fae warrior goodness and other intangibles that just make Power of Five the best book I have read in such a long time. There are multiple love interests in this series, but if you are unsure of how that will play out, just read the book! I promise you will be a convert and you will immediately fall in love with Lera, River, Coal, Tye, and Shade. I especially love Coal and River.

Fans of new adult fantasy romances do not want to miss this series because it will soon join your favorites shelf. All of Alex’s series are well written, well though out and well executed, but the Power of Five series has become my favorite of all time. I am already itching to get my hands on the second book. I need it in my life right now! Right now! And if you guys would be interested, I am already coming up with a post featuring the members of the quint and breaking down their personalities. I cannot get enough of this book! Everyone needs to read it immediately. (It is free on Kindle unlimited, so if you are a KU member, go grab this book this instant!)

    I love the cover and your review! I can’t wait to check this one out 🙂

  2. Jen

    She’s an author I’ve been meaning to read and I really need to pick up one of her books. They sound fascinating and addicting! I’ve never read a reverse harem book but there’s always a first for everything!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I never have either Jen, but I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with this book. This is her only reverse harem series, so if you are unsure about that, I would check out her scout series (tracing shadows is the first book) But if you like romance, this book is so, so good!

      • Jen

        Perfect, thank you so much for the recommendation! I’ll see which I’m in the mood for, when I’m ready to start one of her books, and go from there. Thanks!!
