Lord of the Fading Lands (Tairen Soul #1)
“Creative, imaginative, and beautifully written”
This was one of those books that completely overwhelmed me. The beginning of the story introduced a heap of background information that was surprisingly different from many of the other paranormal novels I’ve recently finished. The intricate detail that was woven into the story made for a compelling and unique read. This book was a breath of fresh air that was well thought out and remarkably strayed from the path of the vampire and werewolf motif (although admittedly, I do love those).
I found myself really enjoying the characters and although the story line was rather dark and twisted, I found myself laughing at the banter between the Fey warriors. Ellysetta Baristini was an easy heroine to love. She was relatable and admiringly protective of her loved ones. Rain Tairen Soul, King of the Fey, was interesting and everything you’d want and expect from the love interest and hero of the story. Even the Fey warriors were endearing and funny, leaving me hoping for a spin-off series.
I have nothing but good things to say about this first book in the Tairen Soul series. It’s easy to tell that these books will only get better and more captivating as the story progresses.
Once he had scorched the world.
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 thousand years later, a new threat calls him from the Fading Lands, back into the world that had cost him so dearly. Now an ancient, familiar evil is regaining
its strength, and a new voice beckons him–more compelling, more seductive, more maddening than any before.
As the power of his most bitter enemy grows and ancient alliances crumble, the wildness in his blood will not be denied. The tairen must claim his truemate and
embrace the destiny woven for him in the mists of time.
