Fantasy Saga

The long awaited destiny of Ellysetta Baristani and Rain, the fey King, has finally arrived. Author CL Wilson has never let her readers down and this final book in the Tairen Soul saga was no exception!

Ellysetta thought her life was nothing exceptional until the day the fey King, Rain, the Tairen Soul, walked through her door and into her heart. Ellysetta has fought for her place by his side, winning the hearts of the people, the magic of the king, and the love of the Tairen. Ellysetta's sisters have disappeared into the mists that surround the fey land, their guards are missing, and life has never seemed to come back around. The time of love and laughter has been tampered with by all the darkness that seems to be closing in on the world. Mystery and intrigue seem to surround every kingdom and one never knows who may turn sides next. Even the fey Queen Ellysetta's life is not always light for there is a darkness in her that threatens to consume them all. Can the fey survive to fight another day for the people? Can Ellysetta commit to Rain and save his soul? The mage's have long awaited another day when they will win the war and plunge the world of the fey and all worlds into darkness that they will call their own.

Wilson completes this series with a stunning story. The book is fast paced, action packed, and filled with all the heartbreaking moments one would expect from this epic battle. CROWN OF CRYSTAL FLAME manages to tie up all the loose ends, complete everyone's journey, and give the reader an ending like no other. This entire series has found its place into my heart, into my soul, and I am now complete after reading their final chapter. Powerfully written, this book was truly a magnificent end to Elly and Rain's journey.

A Song of Love won her heart. A Song of Darkness haunted her soul. A Song in the Dance would seal her fate.

Seers had long foreseen an extraordinary destiny for Ellysetta Baristani. Already she had won the heart of the Fey King — the magnificent Rain, ever her ally, eternally her love. She had saved the offspring of the magical tairen and fought beside her legendary mate against the armies of Eld. But the most powerful — and dangerous — Verse of her Song had yet to be sung.

As the final battle draws nigh and evil tightens its grip upon her soul—will Ellysetta secure the world for Light or plunge it into Darkness for all eternity? As she and Rain fight for each other, side by side, will they find a way to complete their truemate bond and defeat the evil High Mage of Eld before it's too late, or must they make the ultimate sacrifice to save their world?
