About the Author

Kel Kade is the author of the King’s Dark Tidings (KDT) series. Free the Darkness (Book 1) and Reign of Madness (Book 2) of the KDT series are available for purchase now.

Kel Kade lives in Texas and occasionally serves as an adjunct college faculty member, inspiring young minds and introducing them to the fascinating and very real world of geosciences. Thanks to Kade’s enthusiastic readers and the success of the King’s Dark Tidings series, Kade is now able to create universes spanning space and time, develop criminal empires, plot the downfall of tyrannous rulers, and dive into fantastical mysteries full time.

Growing up, Kade lived a military lifestyle of traveling to and living in new places. These experiences with distinctive cultures and geography instilled in Kade a sense of wanderlust and opened a young mind to the knowledge that the Earth is expansive and wild. A deep interest in science, ancient history, cultural anthropology, art, music, languages, and spirituality is evidenced by the diversity and richness of the places and cultures depicted in Kade’s writing.

    Podehl would be the best choice to finish this series, hands down.

    I found KDT books by looking at Nick Podehl read books I am amazed at the detail of political intrigue and insight into the human mind that these books display. I look forward to book 5. This is the third time I have listened to this series and each time I hit my forehead and think why didn’t I see that before! Love the series and can’t wait for anything you write!
    Thank you for your superior writing.

    I have to say that KDT Books are by far my favorite books of all time. They literally changed the way I look at and loojkfor books. I am a sales rep. and spend most of my time on the road so i listen to my books on audible and have to agree that Nick Podehl is the best Narrator of all time. As excited as I am for Fate of the Fallen and the Prequel about Wes, there is nothing I am more excited for than KDT Book 5 and how ever more you plan on writing after. Im a life long fan and plan to read what ever you put out there. Keep up the great work!!!

    Wow! Is this the same Kel Kade who kept me up all night laughing through Free the Darkness! So it’s Macmillan – Wow! I love the fact that I supported a budding author with his first out the gate. Good luck to you Kel Kade and hopefully you’ll enjoy a long and fruitful relationship with Macmillan. Way to go!

    I know it’s early it’s early days, but will Fate of the Fallen be read by Nick Podehl on the Audiobook?
