in Reading Order Guide:

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.

About book #1:

Once, driven wild with grief over the murder of his beloved, the majestic Fey King Rain Tairen Soul had laid waste to the world before vanishing into the Fading Lands. Now, a thousand yearslater, a new threat draws him back into the world—and a new love reawakens the heart he thought long-dead.

Ellysetta, a woodcarver’s daughter, calls to Rain in a way no other ever had. Mysterious and magical, her soul beckons him with a compelling, seductive song—and no matter the cost, thewildness in his blood will not be denied. as an ancient, familiar evil regains its strength, causing centuries-old alliances to crumble and threatening doom for Rain and his people . . .he must claim his truemate to embrace the destiny woven for them both in the mists of time.

LOL!!!! :P

Haha I love this reaction! I will wholeheartedly agree that this is one of my favorite fantasy reads ever! I just finished the series too so it’s fresh in my mind. Every book was an brilliant, imaginative, touching 5 stars for me and if you like this type of read, it really is a MUUUUUSSTT ;)

Absolutely agree with above. Still can’t believe I’d never heard of such an awesome book. I have to say thank you MichelleS so often that I really should save it to notepad so I can cut and paste regularly.

Dang it, Maryse! Now you make me want to read it all over again. As if I haven’t already read the whole series at least 3x!! My all time favorite epic fantasy and all time favorite Fae book. Hands down. But you really DO need to read the whole series. Book one would just leave you hanging. He is the ultimate tragic hero. He scorched the earth in his grief, for goodness sake! Then went mad for hundreds of years. sigh………

Fae books are my absolute favorite and I have never heard of these. I spend HOURS searching for new ones. How did I miss this? One clicking the series NOW!
