Title: POWER OF FIVE
Author: Alex Lidell
Publisher: Danger Bearing Press
Formats: Paperback, eBook
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.

deepens, the hand in my hair tightening until my whole scalp tingles. Sings. Stars.
Shade pulls away slowly, his canines gently scraping my lower lip as I moan softly into
My heart pounds, the warmth between my legs a downright flame, and I try to catch my
breath. “Did you plan that?” I demand.
Shade grins, makes a noncommittal sound, and turns back into his wolf, demonstratively
making a circle on my bed before curling up with his tail over his nose. His body
manages to press against my back, his rhythmic breathing soothing and steady.
“Why do you do that?” I ask when I can speak again. “Stay in your wolf form so much?”
“Being a wolf to avoid talking to me while lounging around on my bedding is a dirty,
Shade snorts, buries his head deeper beneath his paws, and settles into a calm sleep
punctuated by soft snores that turn into whimpers when I shift out of reach. Frowning, I
move closer, resting my hand on the sleeping wolf’s flank. The whimpering stops, the
rhythmic rise of his chest and his twitching eyelids speaking of a dream-filled slumber.
