“The best book I’ve read in years.”<_o3a_p>

—Christine Feehan<_o3a_p>


The incomparable C.L. Wilson brings her phenomenal Tairen Soul novels to Avon Books! Lord of the Fading Lands is the first book in the epic romantic adventure that combines sweeping fantasy with breathtaking paranormal romance. USA Today and New York Times bestseller C. L. Wilson dazzles with a magnificent, heart-soaring tale of passion and great destiny—of the tormented Fey King Rain, the woodcutter’s daughter Ellysetta, who would be queen, and their eternal quest for true love in the mystical Fading Lands.<_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 5 out of 5 by from perfect blend of magic and romance This is one of my favourite books of all time. I purchased it for a light read, but was I wrong. It kept me awake all night, and I couldn't put it down. My biggest issue with this book, is that it stops so abruptly. It has to be read with the rest of the series. If you love fantasy and romance you will love this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely well done (The Chapters/Indigo website has been deleting my ratings so: I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars/leaves.) I really enjoyed this one. The world building was absolutely top notch, the characters (except for the two main characters) quickly felt like old friends, and the story somehow managed to be truly gripping from the first few pages onward (no mean feat, IMHO). The (few!) weaknesses of this novel were as follows. First, the romance between the two main characters felt a bit forced at times. This actually makes sense though, given the background of the characters well as the fact that they actually did not know each other very well in the beginning of the story. Being in the midst of reading the sequel, I can say that this aspect is improving. Second, the author did have a tendency to repeatedly use the same descriptors where certain characters were concerned. The third and most important aspect was the fact that this novel felt almost like part of a novel: it ended quite abruptly, was relatively short, and it ended before much of the underlying story had been concluded. While this was most likely a decision made by the publisher, it was annoying. I mention the above because I believe in constructive criticism (although I doubt anyone cares about my review, but this it is a habit of mine). Don't let my listing of negative aspects deter you from reading this one, however. It is definitely worth it. Other similar titles I would recommend: -A woman worth ten coppers, by Morgan Howell -Santa Olivia, by Jacqueline Carey -Inda, by Sherwood Smith -Transformation, by Carol Berg -Daughter of the Blood, by Anne Bishop
