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.

Mistake of Magic is the continuation of Lera’s foray into Lumos. She and her guys have decided to NOT severe their bond. However, the Elders feel that forming a quint with a human is a mistake of magic. Since they can’t FORCE the quint to split, they instead require them to start their trials over again.

The trials are what all new quints must go through to prove their worth. These are dangerous events that can end in surrender or death. You can only attempt each trial two times. Obviously, the quint is at a huge disadvantage with Lera being human. However, in this story they learn a lot more about Lera’s abilities which furthers the world building. The land that Lidell has created is fascinating! You have the good and the bad, Fae, shifters, magic, kings and realms. Woven into all of the unique world building is the ever deeping bond with Lera and her guys. This book takes a step forward in the romance-she actually sleeps with one of the guys!

I’m certainly planning to continue the story. Mistake of Magic was engaging from start to finish and I am really curious about the direction the story will take. There are no shortages of potential problems and bad guys!
