This is a loooongggg series. I repeat 5-book series about the Fey King – Tairen Soul and his truemate Ellysetta. It was all about magic, power, politics, war, death and love. If you want to indulge yourself to the world of Feys, Mages and Elves, better start reading “Lord of The Fading Lands”.
The story starts about Rain – The Fey King and Tairen Soul. After thousand years of seclusion when he incinerate thousand of people after raging fit, he leaves Fading Lands to find solution about their dying race. Instead of answers, he found his truemate who is Celerian, a commoner and a human with no powers – as they initially thought. As the story progress, Elysetta develops her power that slowly reveal her true identity as well.
Tairen Soul series is simply about Light vs Dark. How goodness of the Fey fights the evilness of the Mages. And in this long history of war, Elysetta is in the center of everything.
Sooooo I love magic, as in fantasy series are my favorites. CL Wilson did an impeccable job in creating a world that is so rich with history and magic that includes remarkable characters. Since the author writes different characters’ POV, it’s either you love or hate them kind of feeling when I read the stories.
The series was really good storyline wise, but I really felt its too long? For me, there are parts that can be excluded or minimize; such as the Celerian court, Mage POV, and Baristani family. The writing is a bit slow for my taste that sometimes its kinda annoying that I just have to skim it away. The good part tho is you’re kinda more invested to the story and its characters. Because really, I cried when Elysetta’s Mama and the truemates died. So much for the rollercoaster emotion. >.<
