Marks of the Mazza: Reverse Harem ( Mazza Series Book 1)By Blake Blessing is the first book in the Mazza Series .This is a paranormal/reverse/harem/polyamorous romance. We get a bit of everything with this book from action,to adventure, drama some danger,suspense and can’t forget the mystery. I loved this Book and had a hard time putting it down once I started reading. I really like this author’s style of writing grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps it till the end. Isolde’s world gets turned upside down and what she finds is a whole new world she didn’t know existed and that she plays an incredible part in that world. Find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this Book. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

Marks of the Mazza is the first book in the Mazza series and it is off to a great start. This a paranormal romance/reverse harem and i just ate it up. I couldn’t get enough of the book and when i started i couldn’t put it down.
Isolde is the main character in the book. She meets a mysterious handsome man and feels an attraction that is hard to ignore. After a kiss her world is changed forever.
The male characters in this book are Donato, Sage, Egan and Jari. Oh Man. They are hot hot hot. Pushy typical alpha males. And of course i love them!
The secondary characters in the book are also great and the author did a wonderful job at world building in this book and i cannot wait to get my hands on more by this author!!
I would recommend to a friend.

Marks of the Mazza: Reverse Harem’book is the first isntallment in Blake Blessing’s The Mazza Series and what a beginning it is! It is her debut book and she knocked it out of the park! I cannot wait for the next instalment as she left us hanging … well, that is the meaning with a series, right?
In this first book we are introduced to Isolde – the Mazza – someone who bears the marks of all four houses of this mysterious people and supposedly holds untold powers. Their appearance signals great change and they are supposed to a saviour … the thing is though that Isobel thinks she is completely boringly normal and she has no idea who those people are and what the different players in those different houses are …
What do you do when you end up in a wrong ‘Uber” with a bunch of sexy guys aka our Fae guys, each of them from one of the four houses and the beginning of Issy’s harem. Depending how the writer spins her story … there might be quite a few of them. In the first book we are introduced to Donato “Nato”, Sage, Egan, Jari and Rand …
It is funny how I started thinking of Laurell K Hamilton’s Meredith Gentry series and maybe that explains why I loved the Marks of the Mazza so much! Well done Ms Blessing! You are in good company!

Marks of the Mazza:Reverse Harem (Mazza Series book 1) by Blake Blessing
5 Stars!!!!!

Imagine getting into the wrong car and finding your destiny. Wow this book just really had me hooked from page one. I love supernatural and paranormal romances and to add the extra drama well this book has just ticked all the boxes. The author has such a unique and refreshing take on the Fae.

Isolde really doesn’t have a clue what she steps into and I just love the whole sort of mystery and
drama that plays out. The whole dynamic of her and the four Fennin is just mind blowing. I find the author has such a great way to bring this story to life. I found myself feeling the emotions and doubts
that Isolde was feeling. I really liked the concept of the reverse harem and the whole idea that she was the one to bring about the destined change. I really cannot wait to read more of this series and
also more from his author.

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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marks of the Mazza was an interesting 4 star read and book one of the Mazza series.
This is my first read by Blake Blessing and her debut as well. This is an interesting new twist to paranormal romance/Reverse Harem and my first time reading this genre.

After closing up for the night at her job, Isolde ends up getting into a car that she thought was her Uber, there are very handsome men in the car. She ends up seeing the men again and there is an attraction that she is feeling. After a toe curling kiss she finds herself waking up in a whole new world where she is staying with Donato, Sage, Egan and Jari.

These men have been friends since childhood and have made an agreement amongst them, to mate with a Mazza, when they find her to get their full powers to help in the war. We discover that Sage may have a little glitch in his commitment, will he follow through with mating? There are definitely plenty of other’s very interested in taking his place, good and bad.

There are additional characters introduced and they all added a great element to the story. I was pulled right in and really enjoyed this story.There is so much going on and we do get some hot mating scenes as well. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. We did end with a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Marks of the Mazza: Reverse Harem (Mazza Series Book 1) by Blake Blessing, 4 stars.

Isolde lives a normal, if somewhat boring, life. That all changed the moment she gets into the wrong car with some men she has never seen before. They say they are another race and she is the one they have been waiting for. That she bears the marks of the four houses of these mysterious beings. And to make things even more interesting, she is supposed to mate with one male from each house of this race. But they are not the only ones looking for her. There are others that want to use her and will do whatever it takes. Can she believe all this? If so, does she go along with it?

This was a very interesting book. I have never read a reverse harem book before and maybe that was why, but it felt a little confusing to me at first. But the more I got into the story, the more drawn in I got. Besides the romantic side, there is action and betrayal. Isolde is interesting herself and easy of the men in her life are different, making this an even better book.

If you like supernatural romance and/or reverse harem romance, this book is for you.

4 Stars

I am pretty amazed that this is the author’s debut novel. The story was interesting, original and well written. There is a mixture of action, drama, some suspense and great sex. It is a reverse harem/poly amorous romance. The characters are likeable and easy to fall in love with. Each one has their own personality but they blend so well with one another. My favourite of Isolde’s lusty legion has to be Sage. He’s fighting fate the most but I have a feeling that he will love her the hardest. I believe we will see many more layers to his character as the series progresses. You weren’t sure if you could trust certain characters and I think that’s one of the things that kept the story interesting.

Isolde accidentally stumbles into a world she didn’t know existed. They believe she is some kind of messiah to save their world. Her life is in danger and she’s not sure what’s going on. Within twenty four hours she finds out magic is real, she’s not fully human, she needs to save the world and bind with four men. To say she is overwhelmed is a bit of an understatement. As sexy as these guys are, she grew up with the belief of being with one man at a time. She’s finding it difficult to wrap her head around the fact that the guys are fine sharing her. I’m glad she wasn’t the type that was too innocent. She has a good head on her shoulders, has values and doesn’t just wait to be saved. She has a strength of character that I liked.

The story flowed well. The author knew how to capture your attention and keep it throughout the book. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it. I’m excited because I think I found a new favourite author.

Marks Of The Mazza (Book One Of The Mazza Series) by Blake Blessing. This is a new to me author, while it is slightly out of my normal genre, I read the blurb and need to read this book. A reverse harem……. hello…… I just knew that this was going to be a good one, and of course I was right. It was everything plus more than I expected. I loved how the characters just clicked together. There was plenty of storyline to keep you interested. There was suspense, mystery, adventure and of course sexy scenes.
I am definitely looking forward to future books from this author and series.

Marks of the Mazza: Reverse Harem (Mazza Series Book 1) Blake Blessing is great start to the series. The story is a paranormal fantasy romance with a twist. I wasn’t sure what I was getting with a reverse harem plot but it certainly did not disappoint me in any way shape or form. Right from the start I was pulled into this group of characters, that are endearing and interesting and found myself falling in love and completely invested in them as individuals and as a group. There is lots of drama, action and adventure, danger and suspense. You will be enthralled with the storyline and the vivid scenes and Blake’s imagination knows no bound. The story flowed well and you are so engrossed that before you know it, it will all over and you just want to scream because you want more. Geesh, book two can not come quick enough. Well done Blake a truly great story for a debut book.
