King of Sword and Sky is the third book in the Tairen Soul series by phenomenally talented CL Wilson. Wilson is a master story-teller who hasn’t disappointed me yet.
How many times have you read a second or third book in a series, only to become bored, or shake your head wondering why an author even bothered to write a series? This is SO not the case with the Tairen Soul series.
When I read my first CL Wilson book, it was in a bag of paperbacks that a friend had loaned me, pointing out a book that she really liked. I’m not a big sci-fi junky, so I tossed the highly recommended sci-fi sounding romance aside, dove into the historical fiction books, and then the historical romances. The last book left was Lady of Light and Shadows by CL Wilson, that darn sci-fi romance.
Not having anything BETTER to read, I started it…and couldn’t put it down! The only problem I had with the story is that I wanted more of a back story than I was getting. OF COURSE I didn’t know that it was the second book!
I ran out and bought Lord of the Fading Lands (book one), and there was my back story! The only complaint that I have now about CL Wilson, is that her publisher is not fast enough releasing the next book! Queen of Song and Soul will be out in June of 2009, and I will be counting the days.
If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, you will LOVE these books. I can seriously see them made into a movie, in fact, I hope they are (not that ANY movie could ever do a book justice).
Speaking of doing this story justice, you should visit CL Wilson’s web site at http://www.clwilson.com/ and take a look around.
I know this isn’t a ghost story, but I do have a few more coming, along with the next post in my fellow writers blog chain, so I’ll be back soon!
