Goodreads synopsis:

Rayla Tate dreams of escaping her ordinary world for a bright future in the art world. Throw in an overbearing aunt who is keeping major secrets, a disgruntled best friend tagging along to college, and a bunch of fae warriors waiting in the wings to claim her the minute she leaves her sleepy little town, and Rayla’s dreams are about to shatter.

She soon discovers she is a coveted Elemental with power she never knew she possessed–a power that could change the world. Everywhere she turns another man tries to woo her. The weird part is she’s drawn to each one of them. Who are these strange men, and what dark power do they hold over her? Rayla must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using any means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever.

My review:

What I liked about Five:

* That is was about the Fae. I love stories involving them. Don’t know why, I just do (must be the Irish in me….lol). The Fae in this book were written differently then other Fae stories. It was darker, more edgier and I really liked that.

* The Fae Lords. At first they came across as seductive/power hungry but the more you read, the more you get attached to them. Zach and Luke were my personal favorites.

*That there was a pegasus!!!!! Even if it was a demon, it was still cool to have one in the book.

What I disliked about Five:

* Nicole, Cassie and Jennifer. The new friend, the best friend and the girl in the same dorm. I thought Nicole came across as very shallow (which could be what the author was going for), Cassie as needy/boy crazy/insane and Jennifer as a bitch.

* Rayla’s attitude at first. She was such a brat!!!! There were sometimes when I wanted to reach into the book and give her a good hard slap upside the head.

Book I am reading now:

The Seventh Mountain (Chronicles of a Magi, #1)
