One passion could unite them.
One enemy could destroy them.

Rain, the proud and haunted Fey King, risked everything to follow his heart and his destiny to Ellysetta—his truemate, his love, the woodcarver's daughter who possessed miraculous gifts she did not understand. He defied the nobles of Celieria to claim her, battled demons and Elden mages to wed her. And now he must protect her—and his imperiled kingdom—with magic, steel, and scorching flame. For his soul-kin, the magical tairen, are dying, and only the Fey King's bride can save them . . . if Rain can help his beloved embrace the magic within her and forge the unbreakable bond of passion and power necessary to save her soul.

In this book we get a bunch more plot and build up for the end and less of the romance and naughty bits. I am not saying that is a bad thing, this book has a wonderful plot so i am intrigued to see where it goes, this one was also a re-read in preparation for the next two (and final) books. This book was vastly more life and death than the first two, I was happy with that fact. Also the drama in this book is exponential, I was on the edge of my seat for almost the entire book. There are twists and turns you might never see coming and you even get a huge shock towards the end of the book.

Elly and Rain are two characters that will inspire your devotion and love. I found myself rooting for Elly and Rain and I really wish Elly would just accept the bond and that would mean she would be safe, it's such a solid and easy decision but way to easy. I am waiting and the mean time I will continue to cheer for the characters I have grown to love and enjoy.

I haven't read the next book but I have already dived in and I am eager to get to the final book, I need to make sure my favorite characters come through.

  1. I stopped reading halfway through the Lord Of The Fading Lands because I've read a review which said that it had a cliffhanger ending... that all the books in this series has a cliffhanger ending except the last, book 6, I think. So what do you think of the endings?
