Random Thoughts:

  • I don’t usually go in for fantasy romance, but Lord of the Fading Lands is an exception. Well written and terribly romantic, I loved this book and can’t wait to read the second book in the series, Lady of Light and Shadows. Lady continues the story of the Tarin Soul and his truemate, Ellie. If you like romance or fantasy of any kind, you’d probably like Lord of the Fading Lands, too.
  • I liked the fact that the tairns are big, pretty (but fierce) cats ;>). OK, they’re cats with wings, but still…very cool.
