I just saw Cora Carmack go nuts over this series on Facebook! And OMG if her reaction doesn’t convince you, I dunno what would. Especially considering two from our very own crew are in LOVE with it, too! Also, Cora makes mention of the *ahem… dated covers* (reminds us not to judge the books by the covers) but makes sure to remind you “you must you must you MUUUUUSSSSST!” <— LOL!
Michelles: One of my all time favorites that no one else seemed to read was the Tairen Soul Series. My husband got a chuckle out of me calling him my Shei’tan and wanting him to call me Shei’tani.
Fabi: I’m also having one of those “can’t believe I’ve never heard of this” moments with Michelle’s recommendation of Tairen Soul. I’m reading Lord of the Fading Lands and can. not. put. it. down.
MichelleS: Fabi – you could always move on to book two in the Tairen Soul series – that series only gets better with each one! just sayin’…..
Fabi: MichelleS I don’t have book 2 in the Tairen Soul series yet otherwise I’d jump on that. Book 1 was awesome!
Michelle: Rain Tairen Soul from “Lord of the Fading Lands” on there. Talk about moody. And tragic.
MichelleS: Tairen Soul is perfection for fantasy fans. I’ll say it again, best Fae books hands down… I am just flabbergasted that no one has read this since it is my all time number one epic fantasy read.
