“I love this book.”<_o3a_p>

—Christine Feehan<_o3a_p>


The incomparable C.L. Wilson brings her phenomenal Tairen Soul novels to Avon Books! Lady of Light and Shadows is the second book in the epic romantic adventure that combines sweeping fantasy with breathtaking paranormal romance. USA Today and New York Times bestseller C. L. Wilson continues the stirring, magical romance of Ellysetta, the woodcutter’s beautiful daughter, and the tormented Fey King Rain, as darkness rises up all around them, determined to destroy their love and their world.<_o3a_p>

C. L. Wilson wrote her first story at age six, and though she took a number of long detours during her life, she never gave up her lifelong dream of being published. Many years, hundreds of false starts, and five completed novels later, she received "The Call" in October 2006 and sold her epic fantasy romance,Tairen Soul, at auction. H...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much information Too heavy on the background information - needed to get on with the storytelling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly gripping (In the event the Chapters/Indigo website erases my rating, I mention that I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.) This one was so gripping that I even put work on hold while I finished the darned thing! Wilson has a true gift for world- and character-building. This was wonderful. I will admit that this book did have weaknesses: (i) the two main characters (the main male character in particular) were a bit difficult to warm up to; (ii) the somewhat awkward love scenes. Regarding point (i) however, I will say that my difficulties with liking the main character actually made sense. Really. Essentially, he wasn't a character who had liked *himself* much, I think, in over one thousand years. He began to feel more 'human' as the story went along -and really, as someone who was actually a mass murderer while paradoxically not being fundamentally evil himself, it would make sense for his mind to not be a generally happy place. I know I wouldn't be very likeable if I had that on my conscience. Regarding point (ii), I will say that this is the only weakness I could find: the love scenes did feel somewhat awkward. JMHO here -your mileage may vary. The rest of the novel was so gripping however that this was easy to forgive. Give this one a try, you won't regret it. Other similar titles I recommend: -Transformation, by Carol Berg -Inda, by Sherwood Smith -A woman worth ten coppers, by Morgan Howell -Santa Olivia, by Jacqueline Carey PS: Another annoyance concerns the publisher: it's rather obvious, as another reviewer here pointed out, that this and the previous book were originally one book that was split into two. This *really* annoys me. ('Nuff said!)
