Is there such a thing as Female Fantasy? If there is this is it. The story is more of a set up of a fantasy world and a courtship between a Fey King and a mortal girl who might be more than she seems. The centralized story is the courtship between Rain the fey King and last Tairen Soul (I’ll get to what that is in a minute) and Ellie the Wordcarver’s daughter. But swirling around that are the undercurrents of a Mage uprising, dangerous political maneuverings that could lead to a great ...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.

Final rating - for the whole series: 5/5 stars
“Ver reisa ku'chae. Kem surah, shei'tani. Your soul calls out. Mine answers, beloved.”
After reading The Winter King by C.L. Wilson, I decided to finally read this series as well. It was recommended to me by one of my close friends, and she said that I would love it. She wasn't wrong, because yes, I do love it.
This is the first book in a series of five, and as expected, it had a very slow beginning. The first part mainly ...more
While I had been looking for a fantasy romance book at the time, I didn’t want one that was completely about the lovers or, for lack of better terms, a porno. C. L. Wilson ultimately surpassed my expectations for the Tairen Soul series by giving me exactly what I didn’t realize I’d wanted: ferocious romance, a power struggle, and morally co ...more

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
“Ver reisa ku'chae. Kem surah, shei'tani. Your soul calls out. Mine answers, beloved.”
The book was a bit heavy, but it was still good. Some of the...language was sometimes incredible hard to understand. But other than that, the story was good. Though not much happened. I mean, the timeline was weird, and they managed little in the short timeline the book had, if you know what I mean.
“I am not a good man, shei'tani," he corrected. "I never have been. But for you I will strive to be better....more
This is an adult high fantasy romance series. I am blown away and so in love. So thankful Cora Carmack recommended that I read this!
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
"Ver reisa ku'chae. Kern surah, shei'tani.
Your soul calls out. Mine answers, beloved.”
A thousand years ago the Fey King Rain Tairen Soul laid waste to the world when his beloved Sariel was murdered. Since then he has become a hermit, withdrawing from the world. But he is the last Tairen Soul, the magical winged cats of the Fading Lands, the only remaining Fey capable of entering the tairen’s lair, and because the Tairen’s are dying, it is his duty to protect them and the Fey. Even when he wo...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
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 madness caused by the death of his mate, Fey shapeshifter Rain Tairen Soul nearly destroyed the world in a blaze of tairen fire.
Now, a thousan ...more
Entertaining at first but it came to a point that I don't really give a shit anymore.I love how the hero and heroine's love story takes time but the story became too cliche and too predictable. You can actually predict what will happen and where's the fun in that?
I might give this one a try in the future if I'm looking for a light read, but for now bye-bye.
Because I am rammed for time, I am exhausted and have no interest into looking for books at the minute. I've simply been that busy.
Why read this?
Because – there was a very particular troll that inspired me to change my bookshelf. See, a while back I was having a convo with a friend about binge buying books. I stay up late on particular evenings when I feel inspired and splurge on bunches of books (biggest bulk buy would be 23 I think) and saying how I love to whisper sweet nothings ...more
First off before I read this book, I was prepared to dislike it. It's shelved in the romance genre, and no matter how many romance books I read I'll still always be wary of that lay of the land. The description on the back of the book had me giggling with it's silliness, and then someone told me this was a series about finding ones soulmate. Personally the over the top soulmate thing had me trying to check out before I could even crack ope ...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
First off I must say thank you to my good book buddies Kris and Melanie. I more than likely would not have picked this book up if not for them urging me to give it a try.
This is a 5 book series and is a continuous story, something I would normally not take on but am glad I decided to in this case. I'm also glad that this series is completed so I can just keep right on reading without having to wait for any of the book's to be rel ...more

There he finds Elysetta, a young woman who is his truemate a bond so deep that if one of them dies, the other will die a ...more
This book just proves adage "Don't judge a book by its cover," the cover may look like your teenage sister has just got hold of photoshop for the first time but what's inside is fantastic. I really wish I had started reading it when I first bought it at the beginning of the year, instead it has been languishing in my kindle.
Set in a fantasy world full of the Fey, dark mages and magic, Lord of the Fading Lands introduces us to Ellysetta Baristini the adopted daughter of a master woodcarver and c ...more
First to the story. Rain is the Tarien Soul a powerful being who had once scorched the world after losing his beloved in a war against the Mage. 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

I truly recommend this book to those who love fantasy, romance and action.
Lord of the Fading Lands is not such a surprise to me. I mean, I knew I would love this because I loved C.L. Wilson's Winter King. I am usually skeptic when it comes to a series with the same hero+heroine, but with this one, I totally trust that I will not be bored during the rest of the series. It holds a lot of possibilities for the next books! :)
The characters are so interesting! I got to ...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”
