Ellysetta Baristani was raised in a simple lifestyle by a woodcarver and his wife. Nothing in her childhood prepared her for her fairy tale destiny that her Prince Charming will come for her, but he did right out of the sky. Thus Ellysetta struggles with being the soul mate of the shapeshifting Fey King, Rain Tairen Soul. Adding to her doubts and making a happily ever after questionable is many Fey resent this outsider rejecting her as their king’s soulmate.

However, the malevolent High Eld knows who Ellysetta is and begins a campaign to destroy her starting with turning her dreams into nightmares. Rain warns Celieria City that the High Eld is back, but decades of indifference leave them disbelieving his beseeching. He knows he must find a way to stop the deaths of both races, but begins to believe his beloved Ellie holds the secret although she remains ignorant of what that is

The sequel to the exhilarating romantic fantasy LORD OF THE FADING LANDS is an exciting tale starring two beleaguered and somewhat bewildered protagonists. The story line is fast-paced but driven by the trials and tribulations of Ellie and Rain as the High Eld has been reinvigorated to begin a new war of terror. Fans will appreciate C.L. Wilson’s strong continuation of the destiny that awaits Ellysetta Baristani and Rain Tairen Soul.
