    Hi, I have just recently discovered KDT series through my country’s audiobook app and instantly fell in love with Rezkin and his adventures! I believe that I finished the whole 1-4 series in a week or so and I have now this emptiness afterwards… I’m totally looking forward to reading book 5! I am curious though, what was the inspiration for Rezkin’s character? I hope that in the end he will find happiness while becoming more conscious of his feelings towards his friends.

      I’m so very glad that you’re enjoying KDT. The fifth book came out today, so you can continue the adventure right away. As far as inspiration for Rezkin, he kind of invented himself in my mind, which is such a Rezkin thing to do. I was writing a different story, and this character kept interrupting my thoughts with the most hilarious interactions. He really evolved out of the humorous side of him, which might seem a little strange, but that’s how it happened. Thank you for your readership! I hope you continue enjoying the series.

    I really enjoyed/ loved the king’s dark tidings series. I can listen to it over and over again. What an incredible fantasy and talent to write like that.
    I love al the characters and hope you will have a lot of inspiration to continue with the KDT series.
    Also the faith of the fallen and destiny of the dead are amazing stories very vivid and interesting characters. I can not wait for book 3.

    I found the first volume of KDT by accident and immediately fell in love with it. After I finished reading, I realized that there were no other volumes published in my language, so I bought the rest of the volumes in English. I am delighted with the book, I think it is one of the best I have ever read. I have just finished the fourth volume and I am very disappointed there is no next one right now.
    I hope it will be available soon πŸ™‚
