Trial of Three (Power of Five, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Trial of Three by Alex Lidell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

Fun and enjoyable!

Four cords of power. Three trials. Two soul-crushing secrets.

For Lera, training has never been so hard. With the males’ power roaring in her veins and River’s cold demand that she master the magic before the third trial, something has to give. Worse still, River is keeping something from her. Something about his past and Lunos’s future.

For River and Coal, the past must stay buried. Though one male’s nightmare sits on a throne and the other’s hides in his soul, they are equally unprepared for Lera’s startling determination to undress the truth. 

But when Mors’s Emperor Jawrar makes a play for Lunos, neither Lera’s fledgling magic nor the males’ old wounds can remain untouched—not if their world is to survive.

Trial of Three

In this book the five remain at the Citadel in training for the trials while Lera learns how to use magic. She struggles with it since she is the only mortal at the Citadel as well as the only one who doesn’t have her own magic but has to “borrow” it from her guys.

“What, pray tell, do you want me to do?”
“Hug her,” Coal demands, gesturing toward me brusquely.
“What?” Tye and I say together.
“That’s what you do with females after coupling with them. I don’t. So I’m delegating.”
“One, you can’t delegate hugging, Coal,” I tell him. “And two, what makes you think I even want that from you?”
“I hurt you.” His jaw is tight, his fist seeming ready to strike a wall.
“Yes.” I straighten my shirt. “It was good for me too. Thank you for asking.”

There also is the issue of the Citadel elders who have an agenda for River, the leader of her quint, who is also a prince of one of the three kingdoms. The story is compelling and I find myself wanting to find out how it ends.
