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.

Ellysetta is lying to Rain on a regular basis, because she wants to do whatever she wants and doesn't want her mate to stop her, so she lies to him. Ellysetta hides important information that she doesn't want to tell Rain, because she thinks it will make him "think less of her". At this point we all know that if they do not complete the bond, Rain will die, so how can he think less of her. Ellysetta also does not seem to care about the bond madness, because she still refuses to investigate or accept the parts of herself that she is scared of, or even to believe Rain when he tells her it is happening. She also refuses to grow up, at 25, and continually loses concentration, in the middle of a war, because she can't quit thinking about her adopted father and sisters. Frustration with the rest of the Fae characters is also unavoidable. They always react to bad news in the same way, with the instant yelling, screaming and rage displays that a 5 year old would show. I feel like someone's mother should step in and give them all a spanking and a time out even though these characters are supposed to be thousands of years old. The worst part is when they meet with the Elven King and they all name call, threaten, and blame the man for allowing bad things to happen, even though they had to happen, so the world would have hope for a future. I had a really hard time reading that scene at all, it was so horribly written. I expect those kinds of scenes in a young adult story(because the characters are teenagers), but not in an adult novel with adult characters. There is also tons of filler in this book. I did not care about the relationship between the fae and his true mate that married Lord Seabourne's son. I cared so little about those characters that I don't even remember their names just the space they took away from the real story. I only noticed those scenes at all, because they took up far to many pages with descriptions of things that had nothing to do with this story. If they have value later on then they should have been part of a later book, not this one.
I skipped whole pages of this book just to try and get through it. I had to put it down and then force myself to pick it back up again, with fingers crossed, that something would happen to redeem the story. The absolute worst thing about this book is that the series had so much promise. It is entirely unique in the genre, and I absolutely love the idea behind the story line. I now will not buy any more of this series and will sell this book to a used book store so that a more worthy series has a place on my bookshelf. I will read the next book, because as I said, the story IDEA is great, but I will not buy it. The library will provide the copy I read and I will wait as long as necessary for them to buy it.
