Once he drove back the darkness.
Once he loved with such passion his name was legend.

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 years later, 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, the wildness 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.”

First of all, this cover… not my fave. Secondly this book was so cheesy I LOVED it. It was cheese in the good way. I have been really into Adult Fantasy Romance lately and this hit the spot! I don’t know why, but I feel like this would make a good Anime? Weird. I know.

I loved Ellysetta. I thought she was a strong female lead that kept Rain in check. She has power that she doesn’t understand and that I’m interested to know more about (as well as the other characters)! Rain. Oh gosh. He was ALPHA male, man. I mean, I guess he has to be to be the King of the Fae. But that man needed a women strong enough to go head to head with him. I think he met his match. It is pretty cool that he turns into a flying cat that can breath fire.

There is actually a really strong, intriguing plot other than them being mates. There is a lot of political intrigue and a deathly plot waiting to be sprung. I have so much anxiety over how this book ended. I need to know more! There are some really cool fight scenes/ magic scenes. Bel is my favorite character I think!

Below, is the photo I took for this series. I read it on my kindle. I could have photoshopped the cover in buuuut again, that cover…
