Publisher's Summary

Once he had loved with such passion, his name was legend: Tarien Soul. Now, a thousand years later, a new threat calls him from the Fading Lands, back into the world that had cost him so dearly. Now an ancient, familiar evil is regaining its strength, and a new voice beckons him - more compelling, more seductive, more maddening than any before. As the power of his most bitter enemy grows and ancient alliances crumble, the wildness in his blood will not be denied. The tairen must claim his truemate and embrace the destiny woven for him in the mists of time.

If I wanted a love story laced with sex I would have gone to the romance section. I was thoroughly disappointed with this story as nothing really happened except the building sexual tension between the two main protagonists. I will not be listening to the remainder of the series. Very very disappointing.

OK but next book is much better

What did you like best about Lord of the Fading Lands? What did you like least?

This has the makings of a decent story a classic good versus evil romp, but and its a huge but, its far too Chick litty for me, too much angst as the brooding hero and startstruck heroine exchange stuff with cliched scene after scene as their relationship stutters forwards. Also this book stops mid story. You really need to immediately follow with the second book to get a fairly complete story


If you’ve listened to books by C. L. Wilson before, how does this one compare?

No but I already listened to the second book in the series before writing this review, the second book is much better, really hard to put down and the love scenes between our happy couple are not so overpowering or frequent. The second book brings the first storyline to a good point for a conclusion


What three words best describe Stephanie Riggio’s performance?

The performance was just about OK, hampered more by poor editing than the performance itself.
The voices were OK, but there were pauses in places where there shouldn't be and even worse many scenes flowed from one to the next without even a pause for breath. This was very confusing when you suddenly realise that the last couple of sentences were in a new scene with different characters.


Did Lord of the Fading Lands inspire you to do anything?

No not really


Any additional comments?

I picked this series after seeing it recommended by people who liked Anne Bishop. I dont think its a good comparison - this is a straightforwards boy meets girl whilst saving the world story, nothing like as complex as many of Anne Bishops books. I
