My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Marks of the Mazza: Reverse Harem is the first book in Blake Blessing’s Mazza series. Isolde – like all of us – was just waiting for an Uber when destiny came knocking. After getting in the wrong car, Isolde discovers the world of the Fennin, an ancient fae like race, with incredible powers, that are on the brink of war. Isolde is a prophesied Mazza, a powerful supernatural, who has the ability to unite all the houses and bring unity to the Fennin. After being abducted by four insanely hot Fennin, Isolde must navigate their treacherous world, and decide on which side of the fence she sits, as she has the power to tip the scales.
I really loved the concept and story for Marks of the Mazza. I thought it was very creative and engaging. Blessing does incredible job of reeling the reader in and keep them in just enough suspense, so that they never want to put the book down. Isolde as a main character was fearless, and sassy; she also had a very distinct voice as a narrator. The voice wasn’t one that I could get my head around and enjoy, I found her to be to over explaining as a narrator, and it would disrupt the flow of the story. But that’s really the only thing I can fault from the book, and it’s just a personal preference. What I might not like, you might love. One thing I loved more than anything was the chapter title art, it’s beautiful watercolour, and you’ll have to get the book to see it. As it is stunning, and I’m a sucker for art in books.
I enjoyed this first book of the series and look forward to reading the next. 3/5 stars.
