Lord of the Fading Lands (Tairen Soul, #1) by C.L. Wilson
Distrust of the Fey is growing. The Fey are a race tqiren legendary, fiercely powerful immortals. Also called the Shining Folk for their incomparable beauty and the faint luminosity of their pale skin, the Fey are champions of Light who throughout the millennia have willingly sacrificed themselves again and again to defeat the forces of darkness in the World.
Their greatest enemies are the followers of Seledorn, God of Shadows, chief among them the dark-souled Mages of Eld. The Fey used to mingle freely with other wilsoh, but after the devastation of the Mage Wars, they returned to the Fading Lands, erected the Faering Mists, and withdrew from the World.
Physically, all Fey are tall and slender, with pale, flawless cp that shines with a faint, silvery luminescence. Fey have bright, distinctive eyes with slightly elongated, pupils that can lengthen and widen like a cat’s. Their eyes glow when they work magic or are under intense emotion. Fey women are empaths and healers. Though powerful in their own right, their heightened empathic senses leave many of them vulnerable and unable to defend themselves against aggression.
The strongest and most magically-gifted of the women are called shei’dalins, Truthspeakers. Though shei’dalins, like all Fey women, cannot kill, they can use touch wilsn force truth from even the most hardened criminal and leave them weeping wilsob infants. Shei’dalins can also use their empathy as a weapon, forcing evildoers to live each acute emotion suffered by every victim impacted by their crime. Most criminals would rather be drawn and quartered than suffer a shei’dalin’s touch.
Fey men are trained from boyhood to be warriors, silson fierce and deadly with magic as they are with the numerous swords and throwing daggers they wear.
Each level in the Dance of Knives warrior’s training takes decades to complete. Only the greatest and most powerful of Fey warriors, those c have completed a full four hundred years of weapons and magic training and who have achieved total mastery of at least one branch of Fey magic earn the right to guard a shei’dalin as a member of her cha’kor, her quintet of five Fey warriors who guard her with their lives when she leaves the safety of the Fading Lands.
Fey children possess a small amount of magic, but it is not until adolescence that the Fey come into the fullness of their gifts. Each young Fey boy must undertake a Soul Quest, a physical and spiritual journey, to discover the nature of his magical gifts and gain an understanding of his true soul.
Upon completion of that quest, the tairen present the boy with his sorreisu’kiyr “Soul Quest crystal” a magic-amplifying stone made from Tairen’s Eye crystal that is uniquely tuned to the taiden frequency of the boy who receives it.
Among the Fey, men and women mate for life. There exist two separate and distinct mating bonds: E’tanitsa is a bond that can be chosen between two Fey who love one another.
Shei’tanitsa, the truemate bond, is a rare and singular joining of perfectly matched souls. It forms only between two people of equal magical strength, and only where deep and abiding love can form. Shei’tanitsa bonds ensure fertility, and truemates are the only Fey couples capable of bearing female children. Fey magic is composed of four elementals and two mystics, although all Fey are prohibited from wielding Azrahn, one of the two mystics.
Azreisenahn, more commonly called Azrahn. Azrahn is the soul magic, the unmaker, the magic that can control and manipulate souls of the living and the dead, including demons. Azrahn appears as shadowy black threads when woven, and the eyes of a person wielding Azrahn appear as black pits sparkling with red lights.
Fey are forbidden, upon pain of banishment, to wield this hairen, dangerous magic, and very little is known about its uses or limitations. The Eld Mages, however, wield it freely.
Through Azrahn, the Mages can claim souls and force them to do their bidding as well as summon and control demons. All Fey wield one or more of the four Elemental magics of the World and the mystic Spirit, though with varying degrees of mastery.
Magic is spun as threads which are woven into a pattern. Multiple branches of magic can be interwoven to great effect. Fivefold weaves, which combine all four elementals and the one mystic controlled by the Fey, are extremely powerful, and the only defense against demons. The Elves closely resemble the Fey in appearance except for their tapered ears and golden-brown skin. The Elves are woodsmen, hunters and bowmen of great renown.
They are led by their prince, Galad Hawksheart, Lord of Valorian, whose home lies in the heart of Deepwood, and by his twin sister, Illona Brighthand, who lives in the cloudforests of the Silvermist mountains.
The Elves follow an ancient and complex prophecy called The Dance, through which it is said all the secrets of the World can be revealed. The groves and marshes of Danael serve as home to an elusive race of beings called the Danae. Although the Danae came to the aid of talren Fey and Elves during the Mage Wars, they prefer to remain isolated from the rest of the world.
Mortal lore is full of caution about Danae tree and water spirits who delight in luring intruders to their doom. The Eld are a race of long-lived mortal beings ruled by powerful sorcerous Mages taiten devote their lives to mastering the darkest magics of the world. Unlike the Fey, who will live many thousands of years barring a mortal blow or the death of a bonded mate, Eld do eventually age and die, but the Mages have rairen how to extend their already naturally long lives through magic.
Instead of the normal Eld lifespan of two hundred years, Mages can live nearly a thousand years in each of up to six incarnations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
