Three trials stand between Lera and exile. Unless the training kills her first.

Quint magic has never chosen a human before, and the Elders Council is convinced Lera is a mistake.

When the quint refuses to be cleaved apart, the enraged elders give them a choice: exile from Lunos or demotion to the lowest of trainees. Subject again to the humiliations and deadly trials they endured centuries ago, the males now face a new challenge—training Lera to survive.

River, Shade, Coal, and Tye will do whatever it takes to keep Lera safe. But Lera will do whatever she must to keep them together—even if it means putting herself in mortal danger.

Also in this series: Power of Five, Trial of Three, Lera of Lunos

Mistake of Magic is the second book in the new adult fantasy romance Power of Five series by Alex Lidell. You all know how much I LOVED POwer of Five. It 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. So when Mistake of Magic was being edited, I was a big ole pile of impatient-ness. And when I did get my hands on it, I was so excited that I went back and re-read book one…again. Yes, that makes 3 times this year. I can’t remember the last time I read a book 3 times in one year. And let me tell you, Mistake of Magic did not disappoint. The Power of Five series continues to be one of my favorite series of all time.

In case you are new to this series, Power of Five series  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. Mistake of Magic takes place right after the events of Power of Five. Lera and her fae are forced to undergo the trials that all quints must face in order to become a warrior unit. We also get to explore more about the magic that binds Lera’s quint together and the uniqueness of their bond. I love unraveling the secrets of this world. And of course, I love seeing Lera with all of her guys. Mistake of Magic was every bit as yummy and wonderful as the first book. Plus, fans of a competition element will love reading about the trials. And they will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat. We get to see 2 trials in this book, and oh boy! I was sweating them!

We really got know each of the characters so much better in this book. And now that I have read two books worth of Coal, River, Shade and Tye I want to share some of my thoughts on each of them. Starting with Tye. Tye is the carefree flirt of the group. I love that Tye is always trying to cheer Lera up, but in this book we also got to see a glimpse of another side to Tye and I am loving it. I agree with Lera- Tye is a bit of a mystery to me. I need to figure him out! Shade. I love Shade but he did annoy me a bit in this book. Something he did irked me, and yes,  I know it wasn’t totally him. (Email me if you have read this series, so I can discuss it with you!) River. Oh River, I love you so. I loved that we got to see so much more of River in Mistake of Magic, and it just made me love him even more. His connection with Lera is something really special. I am looking forward to more of River in the next book. And then there is Coal, my favorite member of the quint. Coal and Lera have a super special extra layer of connection and I want so much more of that in the next book. We got to see a ton of Coal in Mistake of Magic and I lapped it all up greedily! He is so stoic and stern, and you can just tell there is so much simmering beneath the surface with him. I just have such a special place in my heart for River and Coal. I love them all, but I really really 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. As a reminder, 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 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!) One of my favorite reads of 2018 and one of my favorite series of all time!
