Thank you Ariel Marie for putting Power of the Fae for free on amazon!

This book was simply not for me. I remember reading the blurb, was a bit skeptical, but interested. However as soon as I started things went downhill :/ First, when I picture Fairy world, I'm picturing castles, (old) fighting between dark and light fae, or something like that, not where they have a bar where they play popular music from the human world... Or the people in fairy get drunk from just a couple of beers.. I just was picturing

This was OK - basic sentences, bad editing, and a story that's all been done before.

If the editing had been improved, including too much use of the same word in one sentence, it would have considerably eased my pain.

It couldn't have been too bad though, I finished it.

I was all over the place with this book.

What I loved
All the different species. Witches. Werewolves. Vampire. Fairies.
All the different realms.
Bad boys everywhere you look.

What drove me crazy
Harem book.
One girl saves the world book.
I also hated all the petty drama. The cousin. The two exes. There is quite enough going on it could've been left out.

Onward to book 2 with big expectations.

I want to give it 3 stars.

I just can't finish it. I want to. I think the story line is great. The story idea is great. I think the character building is going well. I made it to the 3rd chapter. Why can't I read it? It's the writing. It doesn't flow. It's written by points. Basically how I'm writing this review. Fact, stop, new sentence, stop, repeat part of last sentence, stop, make statement now because the background was omitted earlier,stop. I'm thinking the writer must be young. Definite

First, thank you Ariel Marie for providing me with a copy of Power of the Fae to read in exchange for an honest review... and lord do I have a lot to say about this little book of fairy dust....

I'm in major hangover mode... MAJOR. I finished the last page and it’s a good thing I was in the park alone because I cursed. Loudly. Not a bad thing that I did just... it needed to be said. Holy Cliffhanger Batman! Okay, so maybe it wasn;t ..that... bad but I neeeeeeed more like pronto. ASAP.

This book is pure awesomeness come to life!!!! I loved the idea the book brought to mind, and when I got to reading it, my expectations were surpassed!!! So, in the Power of the Fae, Lina is the not just anyone. Lina just so happens to be half-fae and half-witch. On top of that supreme mix of supernatural blood she is royalty. The catch is, she's royalty that can pack a punch with her mad fighting skills. Colin is a sex

My review of Power of the Fae by Ariel Marie

First off I have to say OMG! I absolutely freaking loved this book. This is my favorite genre. All things paranormal so, yes this one gets a spectacular review. The book was well written with very few mistakes. All of the characters were well developed and all of them had a background. I love the main character because she’s bad ass! Oh, and did I mention she’s a Fae?! She ends up being the mate to an alpha wolf, which is something totally

I LOVED this book! I wasn't sure what to expect since I didn't know the genre before reading it, but once I read the first page I was hooked. From the perspective of a woman, the main character, Lina, is awesome. She has just enough youth to be exciting, and just enough maturity to not be cliche. To make things even better, she's powerful and strong of her own accord. I love powerful female personas and she definitely likes to take matters into her own hands. I love that she wants to have contro ...more

I mean wow! After reading the book description on the back of the book I was intrigued. Once I started reading I truly realized that I was in for a ride. The reason as to why I didn't give this book 5 stars is simply because the reader can tell this is the authors debut novel. I am so glad Marie decided to fulfill her dream of writing and that she even had the idea for this book in the first place! I am looking forward to the next

Wow! I am not a lover of a fantasy world inhabited by witches, vampires, fairies and demons, especially demons! But I have to admit I was captivated by Arlina's story. I could not put it down. The writing was so vivid, I could see the magic being used, the different beings, feel the fear, the frustration of the defenders. The paranormal world was alive like a movie. Amidst all the turmoil regarding the Prophecy, ther

When I first read the book, I was somewhat intrigued. I love how the heorine is portrayed as a strong-willed individual that keeps nothing in the way in the promise of love and family. Her strong belief in that makes her a very likable person. Her personality makes her a 'real' human since we experience the very same feelings. As for Colin, an Alpha male can never go wrong. With the protectiveness, it makes him sexier but I just irritates me when he doesn't want to claim her then and there. I wa ...more

I received a copy for an honest review. Thank You very much Ariel Marie!

I'm just going to start by saying this author is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and found them to be funny and well written. The story line is very intriguing and very well thought out. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to go crazy waiting on the next book because this book has now become one of the best I've read lately. I'm super excited i stumbled on to this and very sad to see the end of this book.

The first book in The Mirrored Prophecy series is a well-written and somewhat steamy read!
Fae, Lycans, Witches and Vampires unite to battle Demons in this action-packed story, which is full of suspense and danger.
It's highly descriptive and the attention to detail lets you 'see' the places and situations clearly.
The background on the different species is interesting and informative, and the characters have strong personalities.
The book is written from the points-of-view o

The book was great. Ariel is very detailed throughout the book. For me it kinda became a little tedious because I'm a pagan and understood lots of it without it being explained. only thing I really don't like is the book ends in the middle of the story so you don't know the ending until you get the next book (and I'm sure the one after that also). I really dislike when authors do that. I feel a book should go start to finish in one book. I don't mind series that have different stories that tire ...more

*Thank you to Ariel Marie for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I thought this book was pretty amazing. It had a lot of aspects that I love in a good book -
A strong female lead
Magical aspects
And a great plot

I loved that there were so many twists and turns and you never knew what was going to happen next. I think that for anyone who likes the fantasy romance genre, this book is a definate must.
3.5 Stars

The dialogue is a little stilted, too much statement and some repetition of information that is redundant. Just needs some editing to improve the flow but otherwise a very good story. I took away one whole star for the cliffhanger. I am not a fan of this new trend. At least this first book wasn't 100 pages like so many books from self-publishing writers. I am invested in the drama and will be reading the next installment to see where things go from here.

Love the story, I find the characters to be so interesting I want to be apart of the group. The charms of Colin and Lina have me wanting more. They are so great together. The love she has for her family brought me to tears when....well I don't want to spoil it for others. I cant wait for book two. So excited.

This book will grab you straight from the beginning and keeps pulling you along denying you sleep and other things to do it until you can finish it. Really well written book I love the storyline and although I hate cliffhangers , I'm glad that the next book is already written so I do not have to wait .
