    Read The Fate of the Fallen and loved it. When is the next book of the series coming out?

    Hi Kel,
    Do you know/have an idea of how many books are going to be in the KDT series?
    Is #5 going to be the conclusion?

    Happy holidays,

    the kdt-books are amasing, intriguing, full of well developded characters and amasing story! but.. it seems it would the next ‘patrick rothfuss’ – a cliffhanger without resolution… i still hope the author will complete the story…

    Your books have been a much needed escape. Thank you for your hard work! I got the kindle versions. My husband got all the audibles so that we can listen to them after work.

    I enjoyed all 4 books of KDT, but after dending the fourth, I`m bitterly disappointed.
    The book is ending with a cliffhänger, bit there is no further book in the series.
    Im feeling like betrayed. Or can I hope of a published fifth book in the series?

        I have read all 4 books 8 times, I’m on my 9th read through now, and i suspect that i will always come back to these books because they are simply that good. i LOVE the story, and i cannot get enough. when can we expect to see the 5th installment in this series?

    Hello I love the Kings Dark Tidings series, I’ve read each book at least 4 times and have loved then more and more each time. Look forward to the new content you are writing. I just purchased Fate of the Fallen and am excited to drink a beer and read it in the evening 😁.
