Lady of Light and Shadows (Tairen Soul #2)
“All pearls begin as something unpleasant that the oysters canno...more
Most of this story was a bunch of obstacles to Rain and Ellysetta's marriage, so it wasn't as interesting as the first book. I really wasn't into the first half and thought a lot of it dragged. There were just too many POVs I didn't care about.
And I just can't take Rai ...more
“My heart has followed where my soul has led. Ke vo san, Ellysetta. I love you.”
This book was full of plot twists and actions - in the last 40% of the book. Until then, the pace was a bit slow like in the first book. When I read this book, I understood why people said it was a high fantasy for women - in a way, it is. It's mostly focused on romance, but it also has amazing world building.
In the first book, we were introduced to Eld Mages, Tairen and Fey races and h ...more
I loved this. I sorta remember being mildly bored for large portions of the first half and even irritated at some things, but I'm not even going to talk about any of that now - it's pretty much been blasted from my memory cuz from the 55% mark in my kindle ALL THE WAY TILL THE END, it was absolute perfection. So many POVs! So many things going on! Action, intrigu ...more
Starting right where the first, (Lord of The Fading Lands), left off, we are thrust back into the intricately woven world Wilson has created, with every page an entertaining revelation.
The courtship between Ellysetta Baristani and the Fey Lord Rain, is moving along at a fast clip, but ...more
As the wedding date draws closer, and the relationship between Rain and Ellie is becoming more stronger by the day. Deep within Ellie is a powerful magic that is about to burst free, and even though Rain doesn't fully understand, he knows he must show her control so that accidents don't happen. Ellie is frightened of what is happening to her, and she doesn't have any idea on what she is fully capable of. In her mind sh ...more
I mean the first half was ok but once shit hit the fan... It was anxiety inducing pandemonium!
I was seriously pissed of at what everyone put Ellie through
I think her mom and seliena deserved what they got. I'm just waiting for the queen to get hers too.
I LOOOOVED gaelin! He is badass with SASS. HES BADSASS
Rain deserved a solid punch in the nuts.
Dorian is a pussy, but I still like him
Bel is bae
I ship keiran and the cat Love
Den needs his intestines pulled out of his ...more
For every light, there was a shadow. For every smile, there was a tear. For every gift, a sacrifice.
And the journey of the Fey King Rain Tairen Soul and his truemate Ellysetta continues, and just like Rain had been warned, Ellysetta would not need a tairen as her truemate, as her protector if the tasks that lay before her were not very dangerous.
Rain’s duty continues in trying to convince the King of Cilieria and his council that they should keep their borders closed to the Eld, to those sus...more
Instead, I'll tell you what I loved rediscovering about this particular installment in the Tairen Soul series :
1. Strength of characters - I am amazed at Ellie's ability to balance her wants and insecurities with the need to protect those she loves the most. She could sit back and allow Rain and the warriors to continue to heal her emotional scars, but instead, she fights to care for th ...more
The strengths and weaknesses of the first book are still evident in this follow up. This makes utter s ...more
Always, she had fought the dark visions.
Always, she had dreamed of the lover who could save her…
Since her earliest memories, Ellysetta Baristani has feared magic, even as she has been inexorably drawn to all things Fey, especially the poetry and legends of Rain Tairen Soul.
Now claimed as Rain’s truemate and no longer able to deny her own magic, Ellysetta is swept into the very center of a struggle filled with the magic and darkness she has always feared. The Hig ...more
^How I feel finishing this book.
I was worried because I liked book one so much I thought, "How in the heck could it get any better?"
Well it does. Hold onto your seats readers - this bumpy ride of amazingness is about to begin.
So we left book one with the first thread of a bond, an allusion to Ellie's heritage, and lots and lots of secrets.
Book Two Plot Summary:
Betrayal of the acutest kind.
Doubt of a lover.
Death of a friend.
An unseen bond.
The answer to the question: Who is Elli ...more
Those of you who like their romances with fantasy type paranormal elements with good verses evil would really enjoy this series.

Yorumumu okumadan önce ilk kitaptaki görüşlerimi okursanız, kurguyu daha iyi anlayacağınızı düşünüyorum;
Lord of the Fading Lands(Tairen Soul,#1)
Kitap ilkine göre daha çok aksiyon, aşk ve entrika barındırıyordu. Dayanılmaz formülüm. :) Kızımız daha ağırlığını koyabilen, ne istediği bilen biri haline gelmeye başladı. E durum böyle olunca Eld'ler - kötü büyücü ırkı - şehirdeki tüm insanları Feylere - iyi büyü kullanan ırk - karşı döndürme ...more
In the first book the Tairen Soul, Rain, king of the fey, literally dropped from the sky to claim Ellysetta as h ...more
As the nobles of Celeria foolishly contemplate opening borders for the traitorous Eld, Rain must find a way to show that the Eld are still as evil as they were 1000 years ago and keep his soul mate Ellie safe. Ellysetta also has her own battles to face as she discovers her origins that have the power to turn her truemate Rain away from her.
This series just gets better and better!
Rain and Ellysetta are fast becoming one of my favourite romantic couples. What I like about their romance is that al ...more
Honest to God, if anybody had doubts after finishing the first book, or is just thinking about reading this series, PLEASE DO SO NOW. :L
I have to say, the previous book, Lord of the Fading Lands, was a littl ...more
This book picks up where Lord of the Fading Lands left off. The romance dominates the story in the very beginning of the book and then there are multiple plot lines that spring up and the fantasy overtakes the r ...more
Tairen Soul Book 2 or more accurately Tairen Soul Book 1, part 2 has Rain and Elysetta preparing for their impending marriage, while around them Eld mages are sowing discord within Celieria.
Plots abound within the Celierian nobles who are agitating for a treaty with the Eld while the peasantry are outraged over what they see as the fae killing Celierians.
The first half of Lady of Light and Shadows rates 2 Stars in my opinion. I think the author could have easily cut down ...more
"Watch out Kenyon...Wilson's out writing you. For the life of me I have no idea why Wilson's second book didn't carry the title "USA Today or New York Times Bestseller" on it. Come on people BUY HER BOOKS! I suggest you start with this one and continue on from there. The story is extremely complicated and oh so many yummy characters are introduced. The Gods smile upon commone ...more
OK...so I read all 5 of this series non stop this weekend...
I just couldn't put this series down for the life of me.
Yes, it does drag on in parts and found myself skimming over paragraphs but overall this was a freakin fantastic series full of Fey, Dragons, Mages, Elves and so many other characters...but...
who won my heart??
Ellie - shit...she was a perfect main character and stole the book for me. From the beginning, the way the author de ...more
"I live. I fight. I bleed. I die For love. I am Fey."
I am definitely not a person who would deliberately kill another human being... but if I had finished book 1 and this one wasn't already out, I don't think I would have been able to prevent doing something I would regret in the future. NOT. KIDDING. But, lucky for me, book 2 was already out, so prison won't be on my horizon, lol.
While I got completely obsessed with this series from book 1, it took every other book in it to make me more cr ...more

Kieran bent over, hands on his knees, and dragged air into his lungs. "Well done,brothers. We beat the smug chervil.”
"You all look like you could use a drink." Cool and unwinded, Gaelen smiled at the new arrivals from the sofa near the window. "Water? Or perhaps something a little stronger to help you regain your strength?”
"Oysters make them, from a bit of sand."
"Aiyah. From a bit of sand." He rolled the pearl between his fingers. "All pearls begin as something unpleasant that the oysters cannot expel from themselves, even though they may want to. So they embrace these things that will not leave them, shaping them and smoothing away the sharp edges, until over time, they make of these unwanted things great treasures.”
