Still contains copious SWEARING and SPOILERS

So I'm still angry over this book. I tried to calm down before writing this but it seems whenever I try to collect my thoughts over it and write a coherent review I get pissed off all over again. I'm going to try to put the things I didn't like in a list and you can decide if you want to read it or not. Many of us have limits/pet peeves and hard lines we don't like reading so I'll try to cover the basics.

The Sea King is a carbon copy of CL Wilson’s Tairen Soul series. Similarities abound:
-Mary Sue heroine with immense but uncontrollable power
-Foreign nation in which men’s main job is to protect their *precious* ladies
-Hero wants heroine to claim him as her soul mate
-Ominous evil magic users trying to kidnap heroine and use her for her power

And the list goes on. My best guess is that the author was unsure where to take this series and so she fell back into familiar territory.

But honestly, you

A buddy read with the wonderful folks at BB&B! Because we are always up for an adult fairytale!!!

Once again, for all of us adults that still want to read fairytales, Ms. C.L. Wilson delivers one seriously substantial one. This time the Sea Lords from Calberna come to court and claim the wives they have been promised as a part of the contract for their warriors to fight on the side of Winter and his wife, Storm. In order to bring more royal blood into his family and hopefully breed some

Considered the weakest of the Summer daughters but that is because she WANTS them to think that.

“She closed her eyes briefly, clamped unyielding chains around the caged monster in her soul, then opened her eyes again and pasted on a pleasant smile.”

She is a goddamn beast with monster power. And with great power comes great quirks: She was literarlly the clum

I was so thrilled when I was granted a copy of this book through Avon, I just wanted to jump right into it and I did and man I couldn't put it down, and this book is 600 PAGES!! Yes I read all that in one sitting and I just couldn't put this one down, not once. C.L. Wilson is just the type of author that pulls me instantly into a book and I can't get out of it until I am finished, and now I am feeling a bit of a book hangover because it was

When I read the Winter King I spent a long time just loving the fact it was a romance with a high fantasy setting. It was the first Romantasy book I ever found so it is really special to me and I spent years waiting for the sequel to come out. I wish I could say it exceeded my expectations but it fell a little short of its predecessor still I have very high hopes for the overall series.

Dilys is really everything you can hope for in a suiter. He is smart, charming, fun, devoted and is practically

I absolutely adored the majority of this book, the writing hands down was fantastic, very detailed and vivid. The authors imagination is literally out of this world. But It wasn’t as GREAT as The Winter King, truth be told Gabriella grated on my nerves a bit. However, Dilys was undoubtedly delicious!!

After reading The Winter King and meeting Dilys Merimydion, I was REALLY looking forward to reading The Sea King. While I really enjoyed this story, it drove me a little bonkers too.

My back, my back, I can’t feel my back!! Slight exaggeration but I don’t think I’m cut out for reading long stories. I thought I was being smart waiting until I was on holidays to start this one, but I’m not sure anymore. I’m not the kind of reader that willingly spreads the joy of r

Is it terrible that I loved everything about this book, even Summer when she was being annoying at first, but I can't fully let myself be happy with it simply because I'm worried it'll be another 3 years between books? I loved the first one and this one was a roller-coaster of adventure from start to finish that I absolutely loved but I feel like I have to hold back from fully investing myself in this series simply because I have no idea how long till the next book is out, could be a few months ...more

There are SPOILERS in this review but I'm not going to spoil the whole book.

So, I'll be honest, I didn't finish this book. I'm so disappointed because I LOVED the Winter King, the first book in this series. I loved Kham and Wynter and their story and how hard they had to fight to get their happy ending. The Winter King was such a great fantasy read and I have read it twice, and that's saying something because The Winter King is a long book.

I was super excited for The Sea King, I kept checking C
I have been a fan of C.L. Wilson ever since I read her Lord of the Fading Lands series (one of my favourite fantasy romance series of all time). Her books are released so few and far between that reading a new book by her is a rare treat indeed!

This story follows Summer, one of the three beautiful sisters of Princess Khamsin from the first book. The three sisters renowned for their beauty and power throughout Mystral are popularly called the three "seasons" of the kingdom of Summerlea.

I loved the first book in the series, but sadly this one was a disappointment.

Writing style was different/off for me and the narrative of other world/fantasy was confusing. Plus the heroine lost her appeal and became irritating bothersome towards the second half of the book.

Full review to come closer to publication date.

Gah that was so freaking good! I hope we don't have to wait another 3 years for the next book or I will go crazy! Wynter & Storm are still my favorite characters but I loved getting to know the Seasons better and I did love Summer and Dilys! And thank goodness for that second epilogue!!!

I had The Sea King on pre-order over a month in advance. Before that, I waited almost a year for it to be released...only to face crushing disappointment.
First of all, C.L. Wilson has a tendency to drag out an issue so that it goes on for half the book instead of resolving it in a chapter or two. I got really tired of watching Summer vacillate between wanting Dilys and resisting him because of reasons that were no real obstacle to their relationship. I also felt that the courtship got a little c

What I liked :

Dilys - Prince. Mercenary. Devoted son. Champion of little kids and baby animals.
Persistent, patient suitor.
As a prince, Dilys tries to keep political qualifications in mind as he courts the Seasons. But his intentions are ground to dust when he sees Summer.
Aftef some initial confusion and haziness, Dilys knows he wants Summer as his wife. He goes out of his way to make it happen. Thoughtful gifts, romantic notes are carefully selected to woo Summer. He tries to understand her mind

I'll start by saying that I have read other books by C.L. Wilson and loved them. The first chapter of this book is somewhat confusing with all the names and keeping track of who's who, that many new readers may not want to read any further. It does get better after that. The author did a wonderful job fleshing out the hero Dilys, and you can picture him vividly as one hunk of a male. The Seasons are a lovely group of three sisters who many suitors hope to covet but have not succeeded. While I en ...more

After the beauty of the 1st book, I don’t know how the 2nd book has fallen like this.

Here are some of my thoughts:
• Initially, I was mainly annoyed at Gabriella’s constant pushing, but after more than half way in, I was blindsided by how much worse it got. I literally did not see this coming. (view spoiler)

I love the author’s work and the Tairen Soul series is UF favourite of mine. I have re-read Tairen Soul series a couples of times, last time this year and The Winter King was also an excellent read which is why I’m extremely sad and disappointed that I didn’t enjoy this as much as I’d hoped to.

I wanted to like this book. I read and enjoyed CL Wilson’s Tairen Soul series and I liked The Winter King, the first installment of this series fairly well. However, one of the issues I had with that book felt even more pronounced in this one and it really hampered my enjoyment.

It was obvious. And by that I mean everything was obvious, from the villains, to the romance, to the “twist” in the (second) epilogue. You will see it all coming from a mile away. And maybe that wouldn’t be so bad if the

I really enjoyed this book, but I'll confess I'm disappointed I wasn't able to give it 5 stars. I had to dock a star for two key reasons:

1. I felt like Gabriella spent too much of the book rejecting Dilys. It was frustrating because it wasn't that she didn't like him, it was that she was afraid of loving someone out of fear of losing them later. And while I get that, I think it just became really frustrating that SO MUCH of the book was spent with this part of the story on repeat, and it made ma
