Book Review! Power of Five by Alex Lidell

Power of Five (Power of Five #1) by Alex Lidell
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: May 4, 2018
Publisher: Danger Bearing Press

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. 

Power of Five is the first book in the series of the same name by Alex Lidell. This is also the first reverse harem book I've ever read, and I'll be honest. I was a little leery about that, but there was just something about this book. Curiosity got the best of me. I'm a one guy kinda gal, even when it comes to fiction. This story really eases you into it nicely though, and it wasn't at all what I expected... in a good way. The naughty bits were just enough of a tease to let you use your imagination without going overboard. I really enjoyed that about this story. I found myself liking each character for different reasons. In fact, I can't even pick a favorite right now. I fell for them all. There was hardly a dull moment either. Stuff just kept happening. I couldn't stop reading, and I'm definitely ready for the next book!
