    Itโ€™s been a while since the first date of the fallen book dropped and I can finally say that I finally started it and finished it. Iโ€™m working on destiny of the dead right now. Unfortunately, I couldnโ€™t start it when it dropped because the audiobook account I use belongs to my mother, and she was actually scared (in a sense) about the premise of the series.

    As an avid KDT reader I was disappointed that I had to wait event longer for each book to release, but I think it helped keep the hype for the next book up as I watched the tracker here on this website for Fate of the Fallen increase and going from 30% written to finishing the editing process.

    Also, taking such an obviously popular, and well worn trope like a hero saving the world from destruction, and turning it on its head like Kade did in Fate of the Fallen intrigued me more than scared me, because Kade had my trust in writing an engaging book, story, and characters from being an avid KDT fan.

    I finally said F it when I saw the first Fate of the Fallen book in a bookstore while on vacation and bought the book. I rarely stopped reading the book and was engrossed from the beginning because I knew that in no strange twist of fate would the hero live by the end of the book (read the summary of Fate of the Fallen if you didnโ€™t know). Now, did it capture me like KDT did? No, but they are completely different worlds, with completely different main characters, and I think that was a good decision. If all Kadeโ€™s work so far had been centered around her amazing KDT series and characters, then she would essentially have a 1 trick pony, and eventually some readers would grow bored in the long run (especially once the main KDT series ends). Does this mean she should never touch the KDT world and characters once the series itself is done? No, I donโ€™t think so. But if thereโ€™s no diversity of content, then Iโ€™m sure even the author would become stunlocked by her own decision.

    We also have to realize that KDT is self published, whereas Fate of the Fallen was published with a publishing house. I donโ€™t know exactly how the publishing relationship works between a house and an author, but Iโ€™m sure there are contracts with each house to be the sole publisher for X series.

    All in all, the shroud of prophecy series (Fate of the Fallen) has been excellent so far, and Iโ€™m sure will continue to grow. I am not disappointed and my experience so far has only solidified my trust and expectation for the authorโ€™s future works. I hope for your and your familyโ€™s health and well being Kel Kade, and thank you for keeping my love of reading alive.

      Thank you for your thoughtful declaration of support and for giving Fate of the Fallen a chance to draw you in. I have truly enjoyed writing in both series, and it helps stimulate my creativity.

    Does this tie into the King’s Dark Tidings world at all?

      This is a new series in a completely different world. That being said, you might find a few “Easter eggs.”

    I wonder if it gets exasperating for her (Kade:the author) that this new series she just randomly started up is getting less than interested reactions from her readers/fans, since all anyone really cares about it when the next KDT book is getting released. Lol. I dont know if this is some selling/marketing/money earning scheme or whatever,from everyone’s steadily increasing irritation and impatience as we wait for the next installment and I see people getting pissed abouther new book rather than interested, etc. There is going to be a riot when the book finally does drop, maybe keeping everyone stuck in anticipation and eager will ratchet up the sales the day she does release the book? If that’s the case judging from everyone’s varying levels of annoyance and entitlement expressed in their shitty comments, well I suppose it’s obviously working… I guess.
    Ha!! Holy crap, Kade I love your books, absolutely love them, and i figure you’re probably a pretty interesting individual to have concocted KDT series, and the mind behind the madness is intriguing indeed. I am so grateful for the series and I am so eager to finish the series. That being said, from reading your previous series I am confident this new one will be just as engaging and addictive and spectacular. However, I have almost no interest, may, ABILITY to be interested while I’m DYING to read the next KDT. That’s just the honest truth. Ha. BUT!!! I do plan to start up that series as soon as I have finished the KDT series. I know itll be awesome and I know I’ll love your new series as much as or perhaps even more than Rezkins adventures. Anyways, since I was saying that you have a bunch of entitled and disinterested asshole fans, and though I do agree with some of their sentiments also, I just wanted to say you’re doing great and I am a devoted enough fan now that theres not much you can do to lose my interest in your stories. Though I do wish youd hurty the hell up and finish KDT asap, I’m just so damn grateful for the hard work, genius and dedication you’ve had to commit to bringing us the books you have to date. You’re awesome. And I adoreyou.
    But by god!! If you turn into another fat, old, rotten and terrible George r.r.martin and take twenty years to finish your damn books ill probably jump off the highest bridge I can get to with a quickness. Please for the love of all things glorious, finish your damn KDT series before I die of old age. And I’m currently only 30. But waiting on an update from you is similar to waiting on the second coming of christ. So please. Help a loyal fan out alright.
    Take care.
    Waiting for that update,or release.

      “…before I die of old age. And I’m only 30…”-hilarious…..You’re probably not a Brandon Sanderson fan, or, ::gasp:: Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller fan (people have been waiting on the third of the trilogy for 11 years on that one). She’s actually doing pretty well on keeping up.
