  1. I waited for this one to become available at the library for quite awhile It was always checked out and that, coupled with the rather rave reviews I d read, made me excited to get my hands on it The cover is decidedly hokey, but I ve come to regret bouts of cover snobbery many a time before So I resolved not to let it get to me this time Besides I finished the book and still can t wrap my mind around what the tairen actually look like So the creature on the cover is as good a rendering as any, I [...]



  2. Re read time3.5 Stars.Is there such a thing as Female Fantasy If there is this is it The story is of a set up of a fantasy world and a courtship between a Fey King and a mortal girl who might be than she seems The centralized story is the courtship between Rain the fey King and last Tairen Soul I ll get to what that is in a minute and Ellie the Wordcarver s daughter But swirling around that are the undercurrents of a Mage uprising, dangerous political maneuverings that could lead to a great wa [...]


  3. I mooched this after reading an excellent review over at Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books, and I m really glad I did I had a moment of trepidation at the beginning, when I realized that I d gotten myself into a soulmate book I m a bitter old bitch and think that soulmate stuff is crap, and I really don t like romances that hinge on characters falling in love within five minutes of meeting each other because it s their destiny rather than because they meet and grow together and find that they [...]


  4. Well, that was highly entertaining This book is basically like the budget soap opera version of ACOMAFThe story starts with this super powerful ancient Fey lord named Rain swooping into a town because he felt his truemate s emotions Ellie is 25, adopted, and has some kind of magic powers she is afraid of Rain has black hair, lavender eyes, and makes the territorial fae stuff in Throne of Glass seem like nothing Anyways, Rain is in town for some ceremony for Prince Dorian, so he swoops down and c [...]


  5. Re reading with Michelle, Ian, Becs, Val, etc because I just love this series so much that I will probably re read Tairen Soul any time someone shows a possible interest in wanting to give it a shot Uh so the review belowI think this was the second attempt at a half assed review of this book that I posted last year I may try again after this re read or I may not So I feel like I m doing Terry a disservice by letting her rep this series on a solo mission here.My original review wasn t very convin [...]


  6. Final rating 4 5 starsFinal rating for the whole series 5 5 stars Ver reisa ku chae Kem surah, shei tani Your soul calls out Mine answers, beloved After reading The Winter King by C.L Wilson, I decided to finally read this series as well It was recommended to me by one of my close friends, and she said that I would love it She wasn t wrong, because yes, I do love it This is the first book in a series of five, and as expected, it had a very slow beginning The first part mainly focuses on the roma [...]


  7. First of all, I m just gonna say that this must be the read that has given me the greatest surprise in my whole life I have found favorite reads before, but never one that completely took me by surprise as this one I knew I would like the book because everybody has been recommending it to me forever, but never in my wildest dreams could I have imagine it would blow my mind the way it did The truth is that once I started it, I just could t put it down But not only book one ALL OF THEM For me this [...]


  8. It might be overly ambitious to review five books at once, but considering I binge read this series over the course of one week, I think this will have to do.While I had been looking for a fantasy romance book at the time, I didn t want one that was completely about the lovers or, for lack of better terms, a porno C L Wilson ultimately surpassed my expectations for the Tairen Soul series by giving me exactly what I didn t realize I d wanted ferocious romance, a power struggle, and morally corrup [...]


  9. 3.5 stars I m not much of a traditional fantasy person, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book It starts off a little unevenly and even had me giggling a bit here and there, but it gradually became a complex, epic story full of fascinating mythology and dazzling magic All of the characters are extremely well developed, in that all the ones who are good behave with honor and the ones who are evil believe absolutely in the rightness of what they are doing I really like Ellie and Rain, whose relationsh [...]


  10. Ugh This book is so trite and clich d as to be nearly unreadable The nerveless bit of fluff who ranks as the heroine is a horrid mixture of syrupy sweetness and heavy handed examples of sudden and unexpected displays of magical ability the likes of which her world has never before seen The king of the Fey claims her as his soul bonded mate immediately after first seeing her, the beautiful female characters in this book hate her, and her childhood bully is repeatedly thwarted in his attempts to r [...]


  11. My review can also be found on Reading Lark After Dark readinglarkafterdark.As an addendum to my review, I have to start off by saying that I have read the entire series and it IS utterly SENSATIONAL and EPIC This first book in the Tairen Soul series is pretty awesome and it s only the beginning It s a love story of EPIC proportions between a seemingly ordinary young woman and a Fey King You have to first accept that this story is pure fantasy where ordinary humans live in a world where the Fey [...]


  12. Ver reisa ku chae Kem surah, shei tani Your soul calls out Mine answers, beloved The book was a bit heavy, but it was still good Some of thege was sometimes incredible hard to understand But other than that, the story was good Though not much happened I mean, the timeline was weird, and they managed little in the short timeline the book had, if you know what I mean I am not a good man, shei tani, he corrected I never have been But for you I will strive to be better I liked Rain Tairen Soul, may [...]


  13. Incredible I immediately bought book 2 and cannot wait to dive in though I must force myself to only read in the evenings so I may write during the day Gah This is an adult high fantasy romance series I am blown away and so in love So thankful Cora Carmack recommended that I read this


  14. May 2010OMG I started this book at 1am this morning couldn t sleep, and figured I d read a chapter or two , and finished this book at 4am All I can say is that it was one of the most amazing books I ve ever read I d give it 10 stars if I could I wasn t sure what to think of this book, so only ordered book 1 I m bitterly regretting having to wait to find out what happens to Ellie and Rain and all the other amazing characters I actually thought it would be a stand alone novel Boy, was I wrongI had [...]

Ver reisa ku chae Kern surah, shei tani Your soul calls out Mine answers, beloved A thousand years ago the Fey King Rain Tairen Soul laid waste to the world when his beloved Sariel was murdered Since then he has become a hermit, withdrawing from the world But he is the last Tairen Soul, the magical winged cats of the Fading Lands, the only remaining Fey capable of entering the tairen s lair, and because the Tairen s are dying, it is his duty to protect them and the Fey Even when he would rather [...]


  17. Beautiful story, wonderfully written, the only negative about this book is that it ended 10 stars Dark, shadowy figures moved closer, circling Torel pulled his two seyani longswords free of their scabbards Come, then He shouted Come dance with the tairen, if you dare Miora felah ti Feyreisa Joy to the Feyreisa And death to you all And he became a whirling blur of motion black leather, shining steel, red blood spinning in the moonlight, delivering death to all he touched until he moved no .


  18. What the Okay, so I just finished this book and I am shaking my head now as I m realizing that nothing really happened here There were like, 4 threads going on in the plot that were steadily leading up to certain things, and NONE of them were concluded What the hell, man So I guess this is just an introductory book, a very, VERY introductory book Like, we are starting our journey and right now we re packing our suitcase and that s it You know, just looking at which shoes to pack for which outfit [...]


  19. This is some high fantasy like, nothing is recognizable fantasy Every single thing is different Even things seem to be different for the sake of being different, like the powdered wigs being powdered gold or the red carpets for important people being blue carpets But, it was fun to read, once I started figuring out some of the terminology There are also a lot of Fey words in their language that is not always translated.The story has three main components the love story between Rain and Ellie, th [...]


  20. Once he had scorched the worldOnce he had driven back overwhelming darknessOnce 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 [...]


  21. I really liked this book for some inexplicable reason, LOL The main protagonist was really innocent, sometimes irritatingly so, but I was still held by the world and the romance and the characters It s a very romance heavy fantasy world, which you don t see a ton Reminded me of the Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop, if you liked that I certainly did then you ll enjoy this I just finished 2 and feel like they could possibly have been combined into one book the main characters in particular dont [...]


  22. Genre Paranormal Romance AKA Romantic Fantasy Thoughts First off before I read this book, I was prepared to dislike it It s shelved in the romance genre, and no matter how many romance books I read I ll still always be wary of that lay of the land The description on the back of the book had me giggling with it s silliness, and then someone told me this was a series about finding ones soulmate Personally the over the top soulmate thing had me trying to check out before I could even crack open a p [...]


  23. OMG What a fantastic book And the story is just getting started First off I must say thank you to my good book buddies Kris and Melanie I than likely would not have picked this book up if not for them urging me to give it a try.This is a 5 book series and is a continuous story, something I would normally not take on but am glad I decided to in this case I m also glad that this series is completed so I can just keep right on reading without having to wait for any of the book s to be released.The [...]


  24. Entertaining at first but it came to a point that I don t really give a shit any.I love how the hero and heroine s love story takes time but the story became too cliche and too predictable You can actually predict what will happen and where s the fun in that I might give this one a try in the future if I m looking for a light read, but for now bye bye.


  25. 2.5 Fey loving starsThanks to the MacHalos for joining me in this BR Don t let my rating turn you off If you like fairy tales filled with castles, cats and good humble folk you ll likely fall head over heels with this one While I am partial to stories that include a fae or two, I m not a big fan of fae that are super chivalrous and only get angry and threaten destruction when their damsels are in distress If it wasn t for a peek at the end of the deliciously evil Eld mage and the possibility of [...]


  26. Why reread Because I am rammed for time, I am exhausted and have no interest into looking for books at the minute I ve simply been that busy.Why read this Because there was a very particular troll that inspired me to change my bookshelf See, a while back I was having a convo with a friend about binge buying books I stay up late on particular evenings when I feel inspired and splurge on bunches of books biggest bulk buy would be 23 I think and saying how I love to whisper sweet nothings to my e r [...]


  27. Watch out KenyonWilson 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 commoner Ellysetta when they send her the Lord of the Fading Lands Rain The Tairen Soul, and an outstanding group of men who along the way d [...]


  28. This book and Lady of Light and Shadows should be read together They are fundamentally one book that has been split into two The fae and their kin, magical cat like beasts called tairen are dying Rain the last Tairen Soul, and the only fae able to shift into the form of tairen asks the gods for help in saving the two dying races The gods send him to Celieria for his answer There he finds Elysetta, a young woman who is his truemate a bond so deep that if one of them dies, the other will die also [...]


  29. 4.5 stars I was amazed how much I liked this book I almost did not read it based on the back cover, it sounded too sci fi for my taste What I found was a wonderful paranormal shifter fae mage fantasy romance, filled with very real and interesting characters An Alpha male hero with control issues and a broken heart He is ancient and a major part of a horrible history of this world He has been alone for decades His name is Rain, he is their king He reminds me of the Ilona Andrews character Curran [...]
