Publisher's Summary

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.

What a bummer.

I loved . . . well, strongly enjoyed, the first two books in this series. The narrators were decidedly rough, and the editing between scenes was abominable, but their voices were warm and sweet and did the story justice. And each of them improved over time. So I bought the 3rd and 4th books without checking the narrator. What a mistake.

Emily Durante really ruins this book for me. Her baby voice lisp, and sing-songy cadence just sound weird. It made me feel like a four year old being read a bed-time story -- a very violent bed time story. Her character voices aren't bad, exactly, but the fey male characters in particular sound like children instead of the thousand year old hardened warriors they are supposed to be. They are fey, not fairies -- but you can't tell from Ms. Durante's interpretation. Using her to record these books is criminal.

I hope someday the powers that be will re-record this series with someone worthy of it. Until then, I'll give it a skip.

Was this a good book? I have no idea. I was so distracted by the reader that I couldn't focus on the story. I tried not listening for a week (thereby not to compare her with previous readers) but it didn't help. It's hard to listen to the Tairen Soul when he sounds like a teenager.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

yes. frustration

Any additional comments?

Books 1 -3 I was addicted too. I am struggling to get through this one. The women have become whinny and annoying when they are suppose to be queens. It feels forced and drawn out. I am hoping once I am through it the 5 th book picks up, but at the moment I feel the story should have been condensed into a trilogy.
