Perhaps The Best Book You'll Read All Year

Once he had scorched the world.
Once he had driven back overwhelming darkness.
Once he had loved with such passion, his name was legend...
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.

I don't think this blurb, or any blurb, could really do this book justice. Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson (releases Oct. 2nd) is not a book that be contained in a blurb. It's much bigger than that, much harder to contain. What I can tell you, is that you MUST read this book. Even if you are not a fan of fantasy romance, read it. You will become a fan of fantasy romance.

This story is so rich and wonderful, there aren't enough words to truly describe it. The worldbuilding is PHENOMENAL. At once, this new world seems like an unfolding wonder and an old friend. The characters are real and full of depth - even the secondary characters make you want to read on.

This is a debut novel by C.L. Wilson. Remember that name. I think you're going to be hearing a lot more of it.

The second book in the series, Lady of Light and Shadows, comes out on Oct. 30th and right now, I am DYING to get my hands on it early.

Order these books today or hit your local bookstore and do the same. You will not be disappointed, I promise.


  1. Thanks, Kristin. I'll keep my eyes peeled for them (and if I cna't find them locally, I'll order them online). They look like something both my daughter and I will enjoy. =oD

  2. Hmm. Thanks for the heads up.
    Sounds awesome. :)
    You rarely steer me wrong with books you love. :)

  3. I have a total complete and utter weakness for fantasy romance. And you said the are brilliant, so I will order.

    To me, there seems to be no middle with fantasy romance, it's either freaking fantastic or a wallbanger. And I think you're right, it's in the worldbuilding.
