Reading progress update: I've read 220 out of 402 pages.
Lord of the Fading Lands - C.L. Wilson

PEP TALK TO SELF:

 

 

Just stick it out. The action will come soon. Once all this political world building is done and you finally remember who is who and who hated who this has the potential be everything you love in a sappy romance fantasy novel. Slap a smile on your face and grin and bear it. (Every time I use the words grin and bear it...I think grin and bare it instead. Lol I think of sitting naked and smiling while I complete a dreaded task.) 

 

I know the action picks up soon,  I snuck a peak at the next book in series, hopefully the magic and fantasy elements become more prevalent soon, I am bored. Shit needs to happen soon, like now! I am so impatient.

Queen of Song and Souls (Tairen Soul)
Queen of Song and Souls (Tairen Soul) - C. L. Wilson Queen of Song and Souls is the fourth installment in the Tairen soul series. For years I have heard so many amazing things about this series, and its not easy to find a stirring fantasy romance series that captures your heart from the very beginning. This review will be shorter than others, so that I don't give too much away.

Rain and Ellysetta's story has been magical from the moment they first met. They have suffered and have made great strides. In this installment, there is much that we learn about the past of Ellysetta and the future of Rain and Ellysetta. Rain and Ellysetta are coming closer to completing their bond, but time is slowly running out. There is a high level of intensity and emotion that is displayed in this story. In Queen of Song and Souls the danger level of the Eld and Mage have escalated, and Rain and Ellysetta are racing against time to try to gain assistance from their allies. The story is mostly centered around Rain and Ellysetta, and learning about her past and about their destiny. There is quite a bit we learn in this installment.

Overall I couldn't help but admire once again the talent of Wilson. I am still astonished by how much I have enjoyed her. I always love a fantasy romance, and the theme that is present in this series is sensual and epic. The romance between Rain and Ellysetta is intense yet tender too. We see a deeper development in their bond to each other, and there quite a lot of suspense and adventure involved. I loved the aspect of the different combination of danger, romance, and this world that has been created that captures your attention. There is quite a bit of a intensity level here, and it definitely near impossible to put it down. It did leave a bit of a cliff hanger and I will warn you that you will need some tissues to get through this story. But what a great addition to the series and I can't wait to read the last and final installment and find out if Rain and Ellysetta achieve their HEA.

Tairen Soul Review
Crown of Crystal Flame - C.L. Wilson

This was another series I found recommended by other bloggers here, so thank you again!

 

I’m placing this review on the 5th book, but it really covers all the books.  I do have to say that the first book I was a bit 'meh' about - it was good, but it wasn’t grabbing me like I thought it might.  By the middle of the 2nd book, I was hooked and inhaled the rest of them.  

 

While this does have a lot of the typical epic fantasy tropes (average girl has glimmers of special powers, evil overlord etc.), it was the journey our heroine  and hero take that really hooked me.  Their relationship, and the relationship between the various supernatural and mortal folk inhabiting this world was fascinating.

Cheese on steroids
Lord of the Fading Lands - C.L. Wilson

This book is like crack, you know its cheesy and over the top but I just want to keep reading it. And yes, maybe Rain screws up so much and Ellie needs to grow some fangs and claws but the wonderful prose and awesome world building just eclipse so much of the cheesiness that usually cannot stand.

This book is romantic and that is so hard to say of most books, most of the time they veered into cheesiness especially when you factor in the soulmate trope but Wilson did it really well. I mean how can you not just faint when the Rain ddeclares his undying love and devotion to Ellie like this:

Ver reisa ku'chae. Kem surah, shei'tani. Your soul calls out. Mine answers, beloved.” 

I swooned and died, it was so great that I just smiled dumbly. The ending was really sweet and they where times that left me starry eye. I guess I was in the mood for romance to the third degree with excellent prose and amazing world building.
