    Hi Kel Kade, just wanted to say I love your books, I’ve read them twice now, and suggested them to friends and family – who all loved them!

    I was wondering if there was any news on the release of book 3, I appreciate the time it takes to write a book of such mastery, but I’m dying with anticipation!

    Dude, these books are fantastic. You are a talented and thorough writer. Interestingly, it is clear from your writing style that you are female, so I wonder why you go to so much effort to allow people to think you are male? Do you anticipate that your readers would not take a female author seriously? That can’t possibly be true in today’s market, i wouldn’t imagine.

    Read both of your books in 3 days and absolutely loved them. Is there any chance you could send an email notification when the next book will come out? Thanks!

    Dear Mr. Kade,
    I saw your book on the Kindle store and just had to buy it. It is a masterpiece, I was up all night reading the books to an end. It has been a long time since I have been so engrossed in a series, since The Wheel of Time series. I must ask, when will the next book come out? I cannot wait to continue the series!
    Great job!!!

    This is actually my second go-round on your two books. Don’t think I commented after the first read, but felt obliged to do so now. Great main character, world, premise, and even supporting characters. I am VERY anxious for book three although you have no release date published. Keep it up and please…don’t over think the following book’s premise because of the formers’ success. Happens all too often! AWESOME!

      Thank you, Jeremy. I am glad you are enjoying the series. I know the readers all have their ideas of where the series is going or where they’d like it to go, but I’m keeping with the story I’ve envisioned since the beginning. I hope people will not be too disappointed if it deviates from their imaginings and perhaps will even be pleased if it is not so predictable. It’s a first class experiment, and we’re all hoping for exciting results!

    I just wanted to sat that I absolutely love the series. I got the first one on a whim and I literally couldn’t put it down. I sat up to 3 am reading. It has been a while since I have found a series of books that has completely drawn me in. I was really sad when I reached the end of the second book because there was no way to immediately continue as next part of the series is still being written by you. I genuinely can’t wait for the next instalment. I noticed a few were minor errors, but as I was so drawn in to the books and the wonderful story I completely ignored them.
    The last time a book series completely drew me in was with The Kingkiller Chronicles which I read last year. You’re books were on par with them.

    I hope to be reading the next one soon

      Thank you very much. I truly appreciate your praise and encouragement. I hope you continue to enjoy the series. As a fan of the Kingkiller Chronicles, I am honored by the comparison.
