Suggested Reading

Readers often ask me for reading suggestions or about books that are like KDT, so I have put together a list of books you might enjoy. The list is far from complete, but I could probably go on for days. For most of these, I’ve fallen behind in the series and haven’t read all the books. I’ve been busy. 😃

    Is there a chance that we will be able to buy physical copies of the KDT books someday? I enjoy collecting books and this series is one of my favorites.

    My Wife and I are both listening to KDT for the second time, This is our favorite Book Series. The way you write and with the amazing performance of Nick Podehl has really brought these characters to life so vividly in our minds. Thank you for the effort and work you have put into your books. Excited for more KDT.

    Honestly I love king’s Dark Tidings but I have been waiting for book 5 a long time. I was upset that shroud of prophecy came out with two books before book 5. I didn’t like it as much as KDT. You are a great writer with gripping stories. Please complete book 6 before book 3 of the SOP series. Thanks

    KDT is just absolutely amazing and riveting in equal measurements, never thought I’d be sucked into anything again after GOT but this is right up there and should be made into an HBO series! Honestly I cannot rate KDT highly enough and can’t wait for the next chapter! Kel keep up the absolutely amazing work….

        Hi Mrs. Kade,

        If you were to give an estimate, when would book five of Kings Dark Tidings come out?
