Publisher's Summary

The fourth chapter in C. L. Wilson's breathtaking, epic tale of magic, passion, and destiny....

Two lovers, two hearts, one soul.
Only joined can they be truly complete.
Only joined can they survive the darkness.

The Fey King Rain and his truemate Ellysetta share a passionate love unrivaled in the history of their world and a forbidden power that made them outcasts from the Fading Lands. As war looms and the evil mages of Eld threaten to rip their world asunder, they must fight to defend the very kingdom and people who reviled them.

Only by trusting completely in their love and in themselves can Rain and Ellysetta hope to defeat the gathering forces of Darkness. But it will take more than the strength of their devotion to endure. They must unlock the secrets of the past and find the courage to embrace the dangerous destiny that awaits them. Only they can save their world, but that victory might cost them their lives.

Enchanted? Listen to another book in the Tairen Soul series.

What a bummer.

I loved . . . well, strongly enjoyed, the first two books in this series. The narrators were decidedly rough, and the editing between scenes was abominable, but their voices were warm and sweet and did the story justice. And each of them improved over time. So I bought the 3rd and 4th books without checking the narrator. What a mistake.

Emily Durante really ruins this book for me. Her baby voice lisp, and sing-songy cadence just sound weird. It made me feel like a four year old being read a bed-time story -- a very violent bed time story. Her character voices aren't bad, exactly, but the fey male characters in particular sound like children instead of the thousand year old hardened warriors they are supposed to be. They are fey, not fairies -- but you can't tell from Ms. Durante's interpretation. Using her to record these books is criminal.

I hope someday the powers that be will re-record this series with someone worthy of it. Until then, I'll give it a skip.

Was this a good book? I have no idea. I was so distracted by the reader that I couldn't focus on the story. I tried not listening for a week (thereby not to compare her with previous readers) but it didn't help. It's hard to listen to the Tairen Soul when he sounds like a teenager.

Wondeful escapist fun.

This series is enjoyable and unique. An interesting, original setting and spirited, entertaining, even humerous characters make the world of the novel and some of its more grim plot developments (including warfare) from being too gloomy and intense. I loved the entire series.

good but main character gets really whiny

enjoyed the story but the female lead is too whiny. By this time in the story she should have her act together.

Oh wow

I love this saga, you feel frustrated when the character are frustrated happy and sad when they are. And you can't help but laugh out loud at some of the things that are said and done, even in a serious environment c.l. Wilson can still but humor in all the right places to releaviate the tension that just builds up. Great book

Good

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

think so. This book is interesting, although at times I wondered why I was listening to the story ... In my opinion, the book oscillates between almost good and good ...

Would you be willing to try another book from C. L. Wilson? Why or why not?

Yes, because I want to know how the story will end.

What three words best describe Emily Durante’s voice?

Hã... to me is a very pleasent listening... She has a good tone of voice, speaks very clear, and is easy to understand her.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I don't think so., to be honest, the probability os small.

Simply Great.

adventure,action, and story are always included in the series but the overwhelming feeling of being over half way done with this series is horrible. Any body will love this (and the tairen soul series).

Is love enough

In this continuation of the series, will Ellie ever get over her fears ?? Will she finally truemate Rain, and save their souls???? Questions, intrigue and suprises continue...Will it be a happy ending or tragic death ????????????? Or worse, evil ruling the world...........This sequel, 4th in the series, is so full of chaos that it is questioning the hardest to read. It brings so many things that have to be answered, prior to finishing the series. Will we find the answers in the pages, or perhaps we might find some of the answers in ourselves.

Amazing writing!

Loved this book! The author makes her world come alive. It was hard to take breaks from her story and face the real world. All I wanted to do was remain immersed inside this one. I just downloaded the last book in the series. I'm excited to read it, but I'll be sad when this is over!

I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE TAIREN!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I have totally fallen head over heals in love with the Tairen Soul series. What an amazing story full of love and magic. A fantasy like no other that shows the absolute beauty of the Fae and the terrible evil of the mages. What a crazy and thrilling ride these books have taken me on. My heart is going to break when the series ends..........
