30 Days of Treasure Hunting! - DAY 26 - NY Times Bestselling Author C.L. Wilson!

Six days left to enter...

My guest today is New York Times bestselling author C.L. Wilson!

C.L. Wilson is the USA Today and NY Times bestselling author of the Tairen Soul series, which combine epic fantasy and romance. She loves reading, writing, and torturing her characters mercilessly. When not working, she enjoys relaxing with her family in sunny Florida and daydreaming of a world where people exercise in their sleep and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is a fat burning food. (Hey – it could happen!)

C.L.'s latest release is QUEEN OF SONG AND SOULS:

The Tairen Soul series tells the story of Ellysetta Baristani and Rain Tairen Soul as they struggle to defeat the darkness threatening to consume their world, ensure the survival of the immortal Fey and the tairen (the great, winged fire-breathing cats of the Fading Lands – think gigantic jaguars with wings), and complete their truemate bond.

In the previous books, Ellysetta (who was raised as the adopted child of a mortal woodcarver and his wife) discovers that she is, in fact, a powerful immortal and the truemate of an infamous Fey king (Rain). She must struggle to accept the powerful magic that is her birthright and learn to control it. But as she becomes

In QUEEN, the first deadly battles of the new Mage Wars have been fought, and victory has been won at a terrible price. Though the last clutch of tairen kitlings has hatched from the egg, ensuring at least a hope for future generations of tairen, Rain and Ellysetta have been banished from the Fading Lands for wielding the forbidden magic. When they discover the High Mage of Eld has been building an army of mythic proportions and will soon unleash its evil might on the mortal kingdom of Celieria, Rain and Ellysetta race against time to rebuild the ancient alliances and prepare for the coming, cataclysmic battle. Meanwhile, the seeds of Elden evil planted in the court of Rain and Ellysetta’s Celierian allies are finally coming to fruition.

As the toll of an unfulfilled matebond and the torment of war begins tips Rain towards madness, Ellysetta knows if she cannot find a way to defeat the darkness growing inside her and complete the truemate bond, Rain will die and she will become the prophesied monster Vadim Maur uses to destroy the Fey and enslave the World.

Note: QUEEN was originally supposed to be the fourth and final book in the story, but at the last minute my editor and I realized I simply had too much story left to fit in a single book and we made the decision to cut QUEEN into two. I’m currently finishing the fifth book and will be announcing the official release date soon.

C.L's giving away a copy of QUEEN OF SONG AND SOULS today to one commenter. Today's question is a two-parter:

a. What was the original name of the manuscript that became LORD OF THE FADING LANDS and LADY OF LIGHT AND SHADOWS?

b. Name the five magics wielded by the Fey and the sixth, forbidden magic (English and Fey names J)

Hi :)
Thank you for the guest post here today CL. Please don't enter me in the contest though as I haven't read the beginning books in the series yet. Are you on Twitter? I cannot find you.

WOOT! LOVE this series, thank you so much for respecting such an amazing author and great series!!!

A. The original manuscript for the series was named simply "Tairen Soul" but actually was broken into two books that became "Lord of the Fading Lands" and "Lady of Light and Shadows" which is conincidential because "Queen of Song and Souls" was only going to be one book but because Lady Cheryl is amazing and couldn't bring the book so short, it became two!

B. The five Fey magics wielded by the wonderful Fey of the series (and the Forbidden Magic which is only just now being used because of one character's influence) are as follows: Earth /(Telah), Air/(Leiss), Fire/(Shera), Water/(Felas), Spirit/(Mena), and the dark, forbidden magic- Azreisenahn/(Azrahn)

Thank you so much for the opportunity, good luck to all and Viva La Tairen Soul Series!!!!!

What a beautiful cover! Whoa!

Here're my answers:

Tairen Soul

And the magics:
Earth (Telah). Earth magic appears as glowing green threads when woven. It is the magic that controls solid mass.

Air (Leiss). Air magic appears as glowing white threads. It is the magic that controls the winds and other vapors.

Fire (Shera). Fire magic appears as glowing red-orange threads when woven. It is the magic that controls heat, cold and energy.

Water (Felas). Water magic appears as glowing blue threads when woven. It is the magic that controls water and other liquids.
Spirit (Mena). Spirit magic appears as glowing lavender threads when woven. It is the magic of consciousness, thought, memory, sensory perception, and illusion.
Azreisenahn, more commonly called Azrahn. It is the soul magic, the unmaker, the magic that can control and manipulate souls of the living and the dead, including demons.

Chiming in late but just had to say how much I looooove these stories! I can't wait until Peter Jackson finds them and reads them and makes a LotR-style epic movie series from them! Um, unless you already have another director picked out, in which case that's cool too :)

Blogger Jessa Slade said...

Wait! I need to add that James Cameron could be the director too, and a 3D Avatar-style epic would also be fine with me. Just sayin'.
