Rain. I fell in love with him in the Tairen Soul series. I love his alpha protectiveness.

Ellysetta, loved watching her character growth over the series. She was always someone you could cheer.

After Galen, my favorite is Rain because I’m still very shallow 😀 Hot men really do it for me.

Kelley Paz

I know this one is closed, but I have to say Gaelen! He’s such a tortured hero. I can’t wait to see him get more “screen time”. ❤️❤️❤️

Khamsin because she’s brave

Dana Hess

I like Ellysetta, as she reminds me of myself in a way. She seemed to be a weak person at the beginning of the series, but became a stronger person through all of her tough times and triumphed in the end.


  on October 5, 2017 :

Ellysetta – How she grows throughout the series and becomes confident.

Aly P

  on October 5, 2017 :

This is a tough one. I totally loved Galen because he was a bad boy, but with a heart of gold. Also, his sense of humor always cracked me up.


  on October 5, 2017 :

My favorite character is Khamsin because she never gives up and is fierce :)

Kat T.

  on October 5, 2017 :

Khamsin is my favorite because she’s so compassionate towards others


  on October 5, 2017 :

Rain! He’s tall dark, handsome and Fey! Plus he’s the Tairen Soul! Super hot, fierce and loyal!

Kat T.

  on October 5, 2017 :

My favorite character is Khamsin from the Winter King


  on October 5, 2017 :

My favorite character is Ellysetta! :)

Bridget Clark

My favorite character is Melliandra. I thought that she was an interesting introduction into the non-mage Eld society. She showed that all the Eld weren’t evil and that a lot of the people were victims of their rulers. I enjoyed observing her journey of rebellion against her suppressors, and I believe that she has a much larger story to be told.

Oh wow, that’s a hard one to narrow down to a single character, since so many of them are great. If I judge my favorite character based on one I’d like to learn more about in future books, I’d have to say it would be Bel! I’ve loved him from the second he told Ellie she would be beautiful no matter what she was wearing in the very first Tairen Soul series book. He just seems like he is the greatest friend one could ever ask for.

Shelby Williams

  on October 5, 2017 :

Gil is by far my favorite character. He’s got a sense of humor that could be misunderstood, is stubborn to a fault, and yet, there’s hints of the sensitive side hidden away.

Linda Olivarez

  on October 5, 2017 :

Steli, I love her loyalty and overprotective mothering


  on October 5, 2017 :

Bel has been a huge favorite of mine since I first met him in the Tauren Song series. Knowing about his life and his interactions with the entire cast of characters in the series brought me a huge amount of happiness.

Favorite C.L. Wilson character has to be Khamsin. I love that she stays true to herself, whether it’s standing up to her father or refusing to give in to the attitudes of the Winterfolk. And, in the end, she wasn’t the damsel in distress – she’s the one who saved Wynter.
