“The best book I’ve read in years.”

—Christine Feehan

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 13, 2007 – This fantasy-romance debut features faerie king Rain Tairen Soul, a man tormented by age-old grief: a thousand years ago, the woman he loved was slain in battle, and in his rage he laid waste to half the world. Now his people are dying out and the evil mages of Eld are rising again. When Rain hears the call of his lost soul mate, Ellysetta, he journeys to the neighboring kingdom to find her; when he claims a woodcarver s daughter as his mate, he scandalizes the nobility of her country and rouses the interest of Eld s wicked wizards, who come seeking her in order to get at Rain. The first book in a series, much of this volume is devoted to establishing the characters and their world, at the expense of plot. Though the extended courtship between Rain and Ellysetta can grow tedious, the story moves well enough to hold readers interest and draw them into the sequel (due in November), which should advance the plot significantly. A promising start, this series should have great appeal for fans of fantasy and will likely reward romance readers for whom patience is not a problem.

Customer Reviews


CL Wilson is absolutely amazing. She takes you into her mind and let's you explore a beautiful world. The characters will warm your heart and make you fall in love. It is a wonderful first book and the series is a definite must read.


I enjoyed this series a lot. She writes about a love that is soul deep and beyond...very addicting.

Great fantasy read!

C. L. Wilson weaves a magical tale in the "Lord of the Fading Lands." I loved the characters, the imagery and the fantastical world described therein. If there isn't a sequel, I'll be hugely disappointed as I long to read the continuing story that comprises the TAIREN SOUL story. Wish I had been at that auction! I highly recommend the "Lord of the Fading Lands," especially when you are eager to escape from reality.
