Lord of the Fading Lands (Tairen Soul #1)
Once he had driven back overwhelming darkness.
Once he had loved with such passion, his name was legend...
Long ago, in the magical holocaust known as the Mage Wars, the immortal Fey and their allies fought to defeat the grasping evil of the Elden Mages and their dark-gifted supporters. During those wars, in a fit of grief-induced ma
OMG... I started this book at 1am this morning (couldn't sleep, and figured I'd read a chapter or two), and finished this book at 4am... All I can say is that it was one of the most amazing books I've ever read!!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could...
I wasn't sure what to think of this book, so only ordered book 1.. I'm bitterly regretting having to wait to find out what happens to Ellie and Rain (and all the other amazing characters)! I actually thought it would be a stand-alone novel......more
* Uh so the review below...I think this was the second attempt at a half-assed review of this book that I posted last year. I may try again after this re-read or I may not. *
So I feel like I'm doing Terry a disservice by letting her rep this series on a solo mission here.
My original review wasn't ve...more
My review can also be found on Reading Lark After Dark: http://readinglarkafterdark.blogspot....
As an addendum to my review, I have to start off by saying that I have read the entire series and it IS utterly SENSATIONAL and EPIC!
This first book in the Tairen Soul series is pretty awesome... and it's only the beginning. It's a love story of EPIC proportions between a seemingly ordinary young woman and a Fey King.
You have to first accept that this story is pure fantasy... where ordinary humans li...more
"Dark, shadowy figures moved closer, circling.
Torel pulled his two seyani longswords free of their scabbards. "Come, then!" He shouted. "Come dance with the tairen, if you dare! Miora felah ti' Feyreisa! Joy to the Feyreisa! And death to you all!"
And he became a whirling blur of motion - black leather, shining steel, red blood - spinning in the moonlight, delivering death to all he touched unt...more

A thousand years later the fate of the Tairen are in his hands as he tries to keep his race from becoming extinct. The Mage are becoming stronger and Rain is the only one that can feel the growing darkness. He is drawn to Celieria to find a girl he saw...more
At first, I did get little frustrated with Elly- she was just a bit too frightened most of the time of the bond that Rain kept pushing on her but, she was also...more
Romance ağırlıklı bir epic fantasy okumak ilginç bir değişiklik oldu. Yazar kendi dilini, dünyasını oluşturmuş. Dili sana ezberlettirmeyi de amaçlamış. Bir süre sonra çevirisini vermiyor. Kitabın son sayfasında bir sözlük mevcut ama.
Kitabın başını çok sevdim. Cümleler, yazarın duyguları ifade edişi beni çok etkilemişti. Ortalara doğru doğal olarak bir entrika durumu işin içine girince biraz sıkılmaya başladım. Sonuna doğru iyileşti. Rain ile...more
There’s Rain, the last Tairen Soul who must save his dying race. At the same time he must woo Ellysetta Baristani, a good hearted Celierian girl with a very murky past. Note: t...more
I found Lord of the Fading Lands and Lady of Light and Shadows in a secondhand bookshop-it was well worn but the covers are so pretty!(WELL DONE,Judy York !)
ANYWAY-I found this series while going through some users selves and wanted to check it out. So, imagine my surprise when I found these beauties in 'Connolly's bookshop'-Let me tell you I scared the owners and other customers with my high and girlish squeal of u...more
Fans of Lord of The Rings trilogy, fans of fantasy genre especially people who love high fantasy, must read Tairen Soul series.
As the first book of Tairen Soul, C.L.Wilson do a great job to describe the world of Tairen. I read this a year and half ago, but I still remember how great this book. Rain and Elysetta is perfect couple, with their flaws of course. And there are many secrets surrounding them. This book doesn't have actual sex scene. But they engage in some mind-bogglin...more
Rain is centuries old and has a reputation that is sung in legends. During the devastating mage wars with the evil Eld Mages from the North hundreds of years ago, Rain's wife was killed. In a single devastating wave of...more

Ms. Wilson captures ones attention and holds it from the first phrase to the very last sigh and beyond! Seldom have I read a book that leaves one pondering the future of all the inhabitants both known and unknown, that wraps ones imagination so tightly that ones thoughts are constantly turning back to the characters as if they were of this world instead of a glorious fantasy world as t...more
I just finished #2 and feel like they could possibly have been combined into one book (the main characters in particu...more
I think was inclined towards rating it 4 stars through most of the book, but in the second half it was clear to me that the book will be kind of introductory. Even though I tried to better prepared myself for that I couldn't help feeling a little bit disappointed by the end. I would have liked certain things to happen into this one but I'll have to wait patiently for the next one(s)....more
It's not just a fairy tale coming true for a peasant-plain-nightmare haunted girl who finds her King and live happily-ever-after...God, I hope it is. With the soul so pure, kind and compassionate, is there more to Ellie than what appears? Definitely, but is it Light or Dark th...more
I won't go into describing the plot. There are so many others who have done it better than I could. But I'll say that I loved. Loved. LOVED it! The world Ms. Wilson weaves is unique and intriguing. You're immersed into th...more
I liked that the romance between Rain and Ellie in LOTFL was only part of the story. I also loved that Rain had to actually court Ellie, they didn't just instantly fall into bed. There was focus on the other characters in...more

And I am the earth that thrives only in her warmth. My beloved is the rain
And I am the grass that thirsts for her quenching kiss. My beloved is the wind
And I am the wings that soar when she fills me with her gentle strength.
My beloved is the rock
Upon which rests the happiness of all my days.
—The Elements of Love, a poem by Aileron v'En Kavali of the Fey”
