    Decided to post something at least once.
    So really appreciate the book series and it is very fun to see the growth of your writing through the years, especially in KDT.
    In fact, I really grew fond of Yserria. Cannot really pinpoint the exact character traits but it was very fun the last few years to RP her in all my D&D and videogame rpg runs.
    So thanks and keep up the good work

    I love the dark tidings series. I’ve listened to the entire series over and over. I hope we get more one offs like mage of no renown. It would be fascinating to find out more about the general. His interactions with rezkin are some of my favorite

      2nd that comment. It would be incredible to learn more about Markum’s history. Or maybe get Tam’s book of The Tales of the Rez? (Cometh nigh the Rez)

    I really like the Kings dark tidings books. Also Wesson is constantly trying to do something that is not destructive with his powers and I think it would be inserting if he thought about substantive manufacturing because he could make things by removing material.

    I’m listening to the KDT series…again…and loving it…again. And I’m wondering if you are a fan of Michael J. Sullivan. I feel like I keep hearing small “homages” to the Theft of Swords series. Tam’s name is Blackwater (like Hadrian), the island is Kyle (like the god), I thought I heard “fall the wall” in the poemabout The Res… Or is this a coincidence?

      Also in Reign of Madness Hilith stays in The Rose and The Thorn! It seems like a clear reference

    Ok …. I am hooked…. Picked up on book 1 and couldn’t stop. I was looking for book 6 and discovered 6 did not exist. I was appalled !!!! I told myself …. No author, in his right mind, would leave his readers hanging like this….or would he. After reading your reply I’m proud to say I like you even more!
