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.


An Excerpt from Mistake of Magic



What made the lass unique lay somewhere in her soul and made her gaze at the world with eyes full of wonder and questions. Maybe Lera’s mortality had something to do with it, the way she lived every moment and made those around her want to live it with her.


“Of course, River,” Lera said in a too-sweet voice that woke every fiber in Tye’s body to yet another realization. Last time the quint was at the Citadel, Tye and his elastic relationship with the law was River’s greatest challenge to conquer. This time, that mantel would be going to someone else.


The tiger paws the sand and snarls, the feral predator taking over Tye’s fae senses. But he is still there, my Tye. I can feel his essence, thriving and pulsing behind the teeth and snarls. He won’t hurt me. I know it in my soul, even as my common sense protests. The tiger standing before us, ready to rip River into shreds, will not harm me.


Tye tips his head, his red hair swinging. “Do you deserve punishment instead of a reward?” His mouth pulls into a feral grin, his canines glistening in the setting sun. “I think something can be arranged.”
