“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


Very gendered but otherwise a well written and captivating story

Outrageously good

I'll admit I was initially thrown by the decidedly hokey cover art of these books but I'm glad I overcame that. I binge read this whole series in a week and it is FANTASTIC! The world building is phenomenal, so many locations and places and i really think the incorporation of fey language helped elevate the world building, but not in a way that had me guessing what was being said. This is an epic adventure book with a heavy emphasis on a romance I didn't know I needed! I love the characters (there are a lot of them, as the books go on you get more and more standpoints which I liked). If you like Game of Thrones or any of Sarah J Maas Throne of Glass or ACOTAR you will love these, I actually like this series a little better! Highly recommend

Highly rated book a disappointment

This is a romance based on love at first sight for male fey character. The young woman is so nonassertive in a molestation scene with Den that it damages my opinion of her character. He is her rescuer against the many two-dimensional characters that are out to hinder/sabotage the young woman and the relationship for really no good reason whatsoever. There is no adventure beyond this plot line. And to top it off the book is more expensive than most and ends in cliff hanger that doesn't resolve story- so you will have to continue to purchase from this author if you want to find out how it ends.
