Fantasy Romance Review: Lady of Light and Shadows by C.L.Wilson

Lady of Light and Shadows by C.L. Wilson (Tairen Soul #2)


Synopsis from Goodreads
She feared the dark visions and the magic within her. And she dreamed of the miraculous love that could save her.

Like an enchanted fairy tale prince he stepped from the sky to claim her—the Fey King, her destiny, her one and true love.

But behind the mesmerizing beauty of Rain’s violet eyes Ellysetta saw the passionate hunger of the beast . . . and a sorrow, deep and ancient, that she alone could heal. Only for him would she embrace the frightening power that dwells within her. Only with him at her side could she confront the shadows that haunt her soul. For an epic battle looms on the horizon—and only united can they hope to turn back the armies of the darkness.

 C.L. Wilson is very similar to Anne Bishop in style. She keeps you on the edge of your seat with her vivid action scenes and juicy villains.

You have to read Lord of The Fading Lands and Lady of Light and Shadows together for the best experience, they pack a good punch, and won't let you go until the very end.

Really beautiful, even magical writing. Strong female leads, they are magnificent when they come into their strength and start getting pissed off. I am talking about you, Ellysetta, and every other woman described in these books! Steady and multilayered heroes, plenty of intricate magic and wonderful world-building throughout. And did I mention the villains? Oh man, there is this awesome sense of foreboding and evil at your doorstep.

Totally reminded me of Anne Bishop, so if you are a fan, get this series! I am shipping it hard, recommended.

С.Л.Уилсон очень похожа по стилю на Энн Бишоп. Вы будете подпрыгивать на стуле и кусать локти, такие у нее яркие сцены экшн и сочные злодеи.

Лорд Поблекших Земель и Леди Света и Тени надо читать вместе, так как по существу они - одна книга, разорванная посередине. В итоге, ощущения мощные и книги не отпускают до самого конца.

Очень красивый, волшебный писательский стиль. Сильные героини, особенно в гневе, когда их довели до ручки. Я говорю, конечно об Элизетте, да и о каждой второй женщине в сюжете. Надежно и многослойно прописанные герои, интереснейшее построение мира, сложные законы волшебства. И упомянула ли я уже злодеев? Так и Уилсон хорошо выходит описать ощущения Зла с большой буквы и надвигающейся угрозы.

Очень похоже на книги Бишоп, так что, если вы - фанат, смело покупайте эту серию. Она вам понравится.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
