From the Back Cover

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.

About the Author

C. L. Wilson wrote her first story at age six, and though she took a number of long detours during her life, she never gave up her lifelong dream of being published. Many years, hundreds of false starts, and five completed novels later, she received “The Call” in October 2006 and sold her epic fantasy romance, Tairen Soul, at auction. Her debut novel spent two weeks on the USA Today bestseller list, and her subsequent novels have gone on to hit a variety of lists, including USA Today, New York Times, and Publishers Weekly. When not writing, C. L. enjoys relaxing with her husband and three children in sunny Florida and daydreaming of a world where people exercise in their sleep and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a fat-burning food.

If you buy a new print edition of this book (or purchased one in the past), you can buy the Kindle edition for only $1.99 (Save 71%). Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon. Learn more.

More About the Author

Writing has always been a focus of my life. I penned my first story at age six and haven't stopped writing since.

I hold a Bachelors Degree in English, Creative Writing from Georgia State University. Before selling my first book, I worked in the high tech industry as a marketing manager, a technical trainer, and a marketing product manager. I'm a member of Romance Writers of America, Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA), Georgia Romance Writers (GRW), and Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA)

I live in Florida with my husband & our three children. When not torturing my characters mercilessly, I enjoy questing through the wilds of the latest Elder Scrolls game, knitting, crocheting, and dreaming of a world where chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a fat burning food! Oh, and reading, of course!

From the start to the end of this book, very little progress is made.

This review is based on the negative feedback I've read. This book is much more than simply another romance. This book is a necessary installment in the overall story arc. If you cut it back to just a few short chapters then you would be missing out on the scope of the world, the characters and it would be simple and easy and forgettable.

But having invested many pleasurable reading hours into this series, it is far from forgettable. The length and the time spent building up the events and the time spent knowing the characters is written in such a way that it feels effortless to read. And that just shows how talented CL Wilson is in this genre. She grabs you and strings you along one thread at a time, weaving together one fabulous and compelling saga! The details and characters of this series is so finely honed, it's read with ease, no drag, no lull in the story line.

In some ways I do think this series was mislabeled, in that it has more of an epic fantasy feel, rather than a romance. But the romance is still the primary focus of the overall story plot. Yes, war is upon them and there is evil that haunts Ellysetta, but it's that war and that evil that is preventing Rain and Ellie from fulfilling their mate bond, so therefore everything in this book and in all previous books has been necessary.

Could CL Wilson have eliminated these last two books and had the bad guy, Vadim Maur destroyed sooner to appease those that feel this series is dragging, well, maybe. She could have eliminated this thread with these characters, or that thread with those characters, but then what do you have? There is so much detail. You learn much more of the world and the characters and the bonds, that without those things would it have been as epic, or as rich, or as amazing? NO!

..."His sigh spoke of fear and regret mingled with grim acceptance. 'Teach her,' he said. 'Teach her to fight. Teach her to defend herself, and teach her to kill. The five of you must be her chatoks in the Dance of Knives. Teach her as you have taught no other. Give her everything. Hold nothing back.'

'Rain...' Bel murmured, his eyes troubled.

Rain waved off his unspoken objection. ' She is a Tairen Soul, and we Tairen Souls were born for war. I may not like this path the gods have set before her, but Farsight is right. I must do everything in my power to ensure she is prepared to walk it'...

Yeah Baby! Woo-Hoo! This is what this series will do to you...just make you stand up and shout!

I'll let someone else do the play by play review. I'd hate to mess up a great story, so I'll just give you the facts!

Ellysetta is finally on the last leg of her journey. She alone has the fate of the world on her shoulders, and with the love and help of Rain and her blood sworn lu'tan she's getting closer to her Song.

I can't express how much I want all of my friends to read this series...It's not by any means an easy read, if you like those pick up a Kenyon, Ward or Cole novel (which I do enjoy sometimes), but if you want something a little more challenging then this series is for you. When you have to actually work for the prize isn't it all that more grand?! That's how this series is for me. I love getting to the "Aha" moments that ties into previous books...Did I mention I LOVE this series?!

"Queen of Song And Souls" was supposed to be the last and final book in the Tairen Soul series, but as always Mrs. Wilson didn't short change her biggest fans by cutting the story in half and giving us a rush ending.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Queen of Song and Souls is the exciting fourth book in the Tairen Souls series by C.L. Wilson. In my opinion, due to complex world created by C.L. Wilson, this series needs to be read in order starting with Lord of the Fading Lands, thus experiencing this series to it's fullest.

C.L. Wilson elegantly throws us back in the world of Fey in the prologue where the King of Sword and Sky (Tairen Soul) ended. From there we follow Ellysetta and Rain as they travel across the lands trying to create alliances with the Celierians, Elves and Danae, to help fight the war against the evil Mages of Eld. They have come to realize that Vadim Maur and the Mages have been preparing for this war far longer than they suspected. They know the only way they can win this war is to combine the Fey forces with all of the other races against the dark magic of the Eld. But these alliances are tenuous at best, due to the intrigues of politics between the different races. Unfortunately, during this dark time of war, they can't afford any weaknesses or doubts.

As Ellysetta and Rain travel, self discoveries are made about themselves, questions are answered and new mysteries are revealed. Ellysetta is also plagued by horrible nightmares and the anxiety of baring four mage marks made by evil High Mage Vadim Maur. And Rain tries to hide from Ellysetta that the bonding madness has started and that it is advancing fast because of the fighting on the bloody battlefields.
